Tamera Jones having worked with High Potential Senior Leaders for over 15 years, Tamera has learned exactly how to help leaders EXPLORE what they do, EXPERIMENT in a relevant and practical way with what they want to change, in order to LIBERATE their potential AND LIBERATE them from the overwhelm that can all too often come along with the rigours of Senior Leadership.

With Senior Leaders, the best outcomes come from a blended solution of 'EXPERIMENTS' that address the mind set, skill and operating rhythm of leadership. Tamera has mastered how to set expectations with this high calibre group and liberate their individual potential to exceed those expectations!

She does so by knowing they must have a strong guide, as well as nurturing nudges. By mixing this necessary directness and subtle support, leaders are free to run their own race while they learn. Resulting in participants choosing the right EXPERIMENTS for their accelerated growth.

Tamera has held leadership positions in Fuji Xerox Australia and HP (formerly Digital Equipment Corporation) in Sales, Operations, HR, and Marketing before establishing Potential Change in 1999. Tamera's wide breadth of experience in these roles allows for a depth of business understanding and acumen, which translates to an ability to consult in all areas of a business and relate to leaders in all functional disciplines.
