With a goal-oriented and self-confident mindset, Tish creates change. Early on, she developed a great feeling for niche markets and realized her talent in helping business leaders become “unstuck” and learn to make effective decisions. Today, Tish continues driving success by focusing her time and commitment to CANDOR Consulting, the management consulting firm she founded, advising executives with her bold style which is punctuated by her early warning to new clients; “If you don’t feel differently on how you are making decisions after 30 days, I’m doing something wrong.”
Tish helps clients leverage human capital to drive the success of their business rather than simply support it. Drawing on a wealth of knowledge from a broad range of disciplines, she has particular expertise in change management processes, business strategy development, as well as behavioral and organizational dynamics. Combining sharp problem solving skills with effective mediation abilities, Tish works primarily with CEOs, executive management and boards of directors within organizations at various stages of development, ranging from early entrepreneurial to Fortune 500 companies.
The idea of the book, HeadTrash was born while Tish, was advising a client who, while undergoing an organizational transformation, was becoming immobilized by fear, guilt and insecurity. Pressure and fear of failure in the eyes of her clients was Tish’s first personal “HeadTrash” experience. As she was developing her business, Tish often needed other people’s confirmation to bolster her self-confidence and insecurity. Learning to manage this type of head trash, which she defines as “patterns of self-defeating feelings and thoughts that can immobilize and keep you stuck”, ultimately improved her way of thinking and has made her a sought after advisor to executives and CEOs.
Tish is the CEO and Founder of CANDOR Consulting. She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, and is a member of the Board of Directors for the Philadelphia based non-profit organization, ACHIEVEability. Tish lives with her husband and two children in Valley Forge, PA.
HEADTRASH 2: DEALING WITH AND OVERCOMING OTHER PEOPLE’S JUNK
Almost everyone has HeadTrash! Let’s clean up the junk that causes stress and make room for healthy relationships with others.
HeadTrash, much like regular trash, is something most everyone has, but not everyone knows how to handle if one person allows clutter to pile up, it affects everyone else. In an increasingly connected world, communication and relational skills can make or break careers (and relationships). In their first book, HeadTrash, authors and consultants Tish Squillaro and Tim Thomas showed how individual anger, arrogance, control, fear, insecurity, guilt, and paranoia can wreak havoc and damage your creditability.
Now, in this captivating sequel, HeadTrash 2, the focus is turned outward to help readers identify these same forms of HeadTrash in the people around them. With emphasis placed on personal relationships, Squillaro and Thomas detail the characteristics and root causes of each form of HeadTrash and provide practical advice for readers to help friends, family members, and coworkers work through these issues. The authors wealth of experience, engaging humor, and thought-provoking quizzes make HeadTrash 2 a must-read for anyone whose work or home life is filled with another person’s clutter.
