                     Develop.  Succeed.

Helping you thrive at life and work.  

Meet Tammy Key

I love helping individuals and teams discover natural strengths and potential pitfalls to help them reach their highest potential.  

Wouldn't it be great to know how to work well with all personality types, have effective difficult conversations, and be more confident in your day-to-day communication?  

I have 20+ years experience in learning and organizational development, 13 of those at Vanderbilt University and Medical Center.  On any given day you might find me facilitating a customized MBTI or DiSC personality team session, training on how to have effective difficult conversations, consulting with a leader, or coaching an individual, all to support their professional growth.  

My certifications & experience include:

  • MBTI Master Certified Practitioner (I'm a proud ENFP!)

  • The 5 Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Certified Facilitator

  • DiSC Certified Facilitator

  • Gallup Strengths Finder Facilitator

  • Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI)

What I Offer


Discover your natural preferences & how to communicate better with those who have a different style than you!  For individual & team development.  I offer:

  • MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator)

  • Everything DiSC 

  • The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team 

  • Gallup Strengths Finders & Strengths-Based Leadership

  • TKI (Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument)​


Team sessions are customizable using an assessment or a training topic.  They can be a one-time retreat (1/2-day to 2 days) or we can plan a series of team sessions over a quarter, 6 months, or a year.  All are meant to grow team relationships and increase team effectiveness and performance.  


Are you interested in digging into your individual development?  I can help individuals continue to grow after a team session or we can go with an individual assessment and develop an action plan for growing your communication skills at home and at work.  Whether you want a one-time verification of your style or  coaching session, or several sessions to dig in and work through living out your action plan, let's talk.
