For the first 10 years of her coaching practice, Tara worked primarily with Executives, helping them and their teams perform together at the highest level. After helping so many of her Executive clients leave their jobs to start their own successful coaching & consulting practices, Tara realized she loved helping experts sprout their entrepreneurial wings. So many great practitioners simply don’t know how to translate their successful craft into a successful business. She now focuses on established, experienced coaches and “coach-sultants” who are ready to uplevel and scale their income without working so damn hard. She loves that by working with professional coaches, she gets to exponentially widen her ripple effect of change in the world.
Tara was first introduced to coaching in 1995 after rising into an executive role at PhotoDisc where she ran their worldwide Sales & Service organization for 4 years. When she was awarded the promotion, she didn’t feel “ready” and feared the impact of being promoted over her peers and leading a combined team of 80 people at the tender age of 26. She initially struggled until she hired a coach to help her navigate the new and tricky waters. She found that it significantly impacted her ability to lead her team effectively, foster her personal and professional relationships, and, most importantly, feel confident that she was the right person for the role. She became hooked on coaching and has had a coach herself ever since. It was a major step in what has unfolded into a life-long pursuit of learning and growth. After PhotoDisc merged with Getty Images, bringing the company Public, Tara went on to have several Executive Roles there and at Who’s Calling before realizing she wanted to merge her passion for business with her love of personal development by starting Broadview Coaching. She thrives on helping others overcome obstacles and realize their highest potential. It drew her to become a Board Member of The Excellence Foundation, a non-profit organization that offers personal development programs, and later became their Executive Director for over a year.
In the past several years, Tara has chosen to work with only 14 clients at a time and less than 20 hours a week so she can spend more of her time with her son, Connor, who chose to come into the world unexpectedly and delightfully when Tara (and her husband Eric) was 46 years old. They spend hours in the garden every day on their 3 acre property in Sebastopol, CA, with their hands in the dirt, gathering eggs from their chickens, picking yet another zucchini, and catching frogs in their pond.
