Sears Coaching started with a whisper when Tamica Sears discovered her love for Executive Coaching and grew to a loud roar when she met Eric Franco and discovered his natural coaching ability. Together the two of them are on a mission to change Corporate America, organization by organization, one leader at a time. We believe that each person has it within themselves to be an excellent leader, someone who can develop themselves, motivate and inspire the people around them and transform organizations. After meeting Kirsty Sayer, we realized that we needed a softer side of Sears Coaching and she fulfills that need as the Life Coaching arm of the organization.
About Tamica Sears - Noomi Interview
Tamica Sears, PHR, SHRM-CP, ACC
I’m The Corporate Fixer and my mission is to help people become more self-aware so that they can lead from a place of authenticity and self-acceptance. I believe that everyone should be able to bring their whole selves to work and have the opportunity to be innovative and empowered. As an HR Professional and Leadership Development Coach, for the past 20 years, I’ve had the honor of coaching and developing leaders in a wide range of organizations, from Fortune 100 companies to mom-and-pop shops. My primary focus is helping them increase productivity and revenue through higher employee engagement.
The greatest reward I get from doing this work is knowing that I am helping to transform corporate America into a more innovative and inclusive workplace. I am grateful to be a major player in changing corporate culture.
I earned my M.A. Leadership from Northern Arizona University and my B.A. Organizational Development and Psychology from American Intercontinental University. I’m originally from Boston, MA, but now I call Phoenix, AZ home. I published a collection of motivational quotes and affirmations, You Are Enough, found on Amazon, and I am also a proud mother of 2 adult children and the cutest dog in the country.
