Tamera is also skilled in the Enneagram theory of personality receiving advanced training through The Enneagram Institute.
The most common issues her clients choose to work on involve increasing awareness around emotional intelligence and improving communication. The Integral method of coaching is highly effective because it strives for long term sustainable change while also addressing a client’s immediate concerns. A variety of assessment tools may be used, however one-on-one conversation continues to be the most effective method for working with personality and self-awareness. Behavioral, communication and managerial skills may also be assessed through shadowing an employee and conducting feedback interviews.
