Tammy Gooler Loeb knew she wanted to serve as a child, but she didn’t know how she’d do it. After doing volunteer work, trying her hand in public policy, and becoming a grant writer, she settled on executive coaching. Now, she helps people to engage in work that’s meaningful, fulfilling, and satisfying, and she loves it because, according to her, coaching starts from a strengths-based perspective. She is also a motivational speaker and the host of her own podcast, Work From the Inside Out, on which I appeared some time ago.


Today, Tammy joins me to talk about what she’s learned in her vast experience. We talk about what it means to coach, humility, openness to what’s in front of you, and leadership. She tells me about the importance of  treating the whole person, as well as of helping people help themselves instead of doing it for them. She finishes by noting the importance of failure, referencing one of her favorite books.


“When people get lost, it’s usually because they’re looking for the answers outside of themselves.”

Our Favorite Quotes:


  • “From a coach’s standpoint, you’re not working with someone who’s broken who you’re trying to fix....You’re starting with them from a very strengths-based point of view.”
  • “The most important thing is to help people help themselves.”
  • “The more you stay open and curious as you go forward, the more that opens you up to experiencing life more fully.”
