What Makes Tasha Awesome?
Tasha isn't like other leadership speakers. She has a fresh, modern, and fun take on leadership. People use words
like “enthusiastic,” “sharp,” and “pithy” to describe her style.
Her approach is geared towards busy professionals who don’t have time to pontificate. Instead, she gives leaders
tools and helps them make plans to implement them.
To maximize learning, Tasha includes audiences and readers in everything she does, whether it’s through large or small group
discussion, individual reflection or activities.
A self-proclaimed leadership geek, she’s steeped in the science of the workplace. Tasha’s research has been
published in peer-reviewed journals and has been showcased around the world.
As a speaker, Tasha isn't messing around. She is a former professional actor with formal training and 15
years of experience, including a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theater.
Tasha is a born entrepreneur. In the early 1980s, her mother started and grew a successful company. Watching
her find fulfillment and a way to support their family as a single mom, Tasha witnessed the power of businesses
to transform lives. Eager to get going and ever the Type A person, she started her first business at age 11 (if
you’re curious, they designed and delivered children’s birthday parties so parents could hang out and drink wine
instead of stressing).
When it was time for college, Tasha braved the freezing Vermont temperatures to study Theater and Psychology
at Middlebury College. She returned to Colorado, her much-less-freezing home state, to complete her PhD in
Organizational Psychology at Colorado State University. As the youngest instructor in their business school, she
earned a commendation for teaching excellence and fell in love with teaching. She also cut her teeth as a junior
consultant, working with businesses like Poudre Valley Hospital and New Belgium Brewing (no, they didn't pay her
in free beer).
Tasha knew she didn’t want to be one of those consultants who told companies what to do but had never worked
in one. So after graduate school, she entered the Fortune 500 world. Starting out at CH2M HILL, an engineering
and program management firm, Tasha worked her way up from an entry-level position to leading the company’s global
leadership programs, where she travelled the world to help their leaders be better.
She was then recruited to work for the CEO of Rose Medical Center/HealthONE (Yes, nurses and engineers—basically
the same, right?). Here, she had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a leadership development program
from scratch. In less than 18 months, the programs she built saved the hospital more than $8 million, and they
were named one of the Top 25 Hospitals to Work For by HealthExecNews. Her boss was pretty pleased, and Tasha knew
she was onto something!
In 2011, Tasha founded The Eurich Group, which helps companies succeed by making their leaders AWESOME (primarily
through workshops, keynotes, and executive and team coaching). For more information, see the consulting page.
