Clients In Partnership
At the age of 22, Tarina found herself straight out of university and in an intensive management training program at a multi-national bank. As her career quickly progressed in various industries and she started leading and advising people 20-years her senior, she began to question what factors resulted in her success. Loving her work and with motherhood entering her life four years later, she came to realize that the difference between those who thrived in their personal and professional lives and those who were merely surviving began with their sense of clarity: knowing who they were and what they most valued. Fascinated with this discovery, she embarked on a journey of research and guinea pig integration of her findings in the areas of personal development, parenting, self-mastery, and entrepreneurship. Taking these learnings and experience, in 2002 she developed her first company, LifeWorks Solutions, while working a corporate managerial role and raising her three kids with her husband, Robert.
After years of personal and professional success, in 2014 Tarina felt as if her world fell apart as she experienced three major health crises in the lives of her husband, mother, and daughter in the span of 8 weeks. An unwavering optimist and with relentless vision, she returned to her reflections on the difference between those who thrive versus those who merely survive. In a years-of-experience-behind-her-stroke-of-insight, her answer came to her in the form of what is now known as her Three Pillars of Deliberateness: choose what matters, act what matters, and become what matters. These three pillars of deliberateness have helped not only Tarina’s family thrive again but have also transformed the lives of the hundreds of clients she has worked with since. Her latest book, The Deliberate Effect, shares her practices behind this model, as well as her story and those of her clients.
Today, Tarina is an internationally recognized author, speaker, coach, and learning strategist. She is the president of LifeWorks Solutions and Tarina W., helping organizations and individuals around the globe actualize their potential and move from a place of distraction to deliberateness, of dissatisfaction to fulfillment.
