Let us show you how a coaching approach to management can improve the communication and influence of your managers, so they can easily navigate the most challenging parts of people management- conflict and difficult conversations.


You should never lose star employees because of a bad Manager. Prevention is better than cure here, investing in your Managers will always impact your bottom line.

After 10+ years of successfully coaching and training first-time managers, many of whom have not had formal training around how to integrate a coaching approach to management, it’s been fulfilling to witness their personal and professional growth as well as the impact of their evolution on their teams. The multiplier effect of investing in frontline managers on organizational culture is incredible. I’ve helped hundreds of first-time managers master people management by following a proven system, including managers from diverse industries at companies such as Netflix, Dropbox, Atlassian,  Twitter, Zen Desk,  BMW, Shopify, Lyft and others.


What is the Leadership Level Up Accelerator?

The Leadership Level Up Accelerator is a  2-month online group program that includes 1:1 coaching and teaches managers who want to improve people management skills how to become more confident, and master communication and delegation skills. The program also addresses systemic/cultural issues that perpetuate chronic issues for managers such as over-work and overwhelm. 

Whether you’re an individual contributor now turned first-time manager, or a seasoned manager that now has been promoted into higher levels of management, The Leadership Level-Up Accelerator will challenge you to execute at your highest level. It’s designed to help you handle the toughest parts of people management like navigating conflict and tough conversations with ease.

Tajan's style is positive and strategic. She helped me realize that I do a lot of fortune telling and guessing about the future versus sticking to the factual information. She worked with me on self compassion, removing self judgment and comparison. Working on those skills has helped me as a leader.

I believe that seeking help from a real coach in a coaching program is really an important characteristic of a strong leader.

I don’t need to feel stuck, I can plan what I want to do next and work hard to accomplish it.

How we demonstrate the impact? 

Our program evaluation includes an assessment of mindset shifts and behavior change based on key leadership competencies first-time managers need to change stemming from the 360 review. At the end of the program, we create a detailed program evaluation report and conduct a debriefing consulting session with HR leaders that allows you to see the impact of the program on your first-time managers, including recommended systemic changes that will help your managers be successful.


How we help you sustain success?

Change is only good if it can be sustained. The TRC team can continue to provide ongoing coaching, consultation and technical assistance once the program has ended. Our most successful clients leverage this phase for strategy sessions around integrating systemic changes (policies, procedures, norms etc) that are needed to help managers be successful. Furthermore, our programs can be licensed for internal use.

Tajan's coaching style is engaging and impactful. I struggle with some limiting beliefs and tend to procrastinate. Working with Tajan, I learned so much. I learned that imposter syndrome is not uncommon and how to combat it. She also held me accountable for next steps to get me closer to my goals.
