Creating Connection to Find Your Authentic Self with Roxanne Derhodge and Tatiana Poliakova

Quote: “The more I progressed on my journey, the more I realized that those skills that I described at the time as “soft skills” are the most important skills in life.”  Tatiana Poliakova

Are you doing what you’re meant to be doing in business?  Are you where you want to be in life?  If you are, you are very fortunate and should be commended.  Many of us find ourselves wondering if we should be changing careers, making big life changes, searching for a more content way of being.  On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome Tatiana Poliakova who made her way from a very successful corporate job to finding her passion and authentic self in coaching. 

Tatiana is an accredited Executive and team coach,  with extensive international leadership experience.  She worked for 20+ years as an Investment Banker and Management Consultant in NYC, London and Frankfurt. She left the city, whilst a Managing Director at Nomura. Tatiana helps powerful people to look beyond their fears to make an impact in the world they desire and to move from SuccessEmpty to SuccessFull.
