What’s With the Name ‘Corporate Cinderella’?

Using the Corporate Cinderella principle Tarran highlights the power of coming together corporately or ‘in unity’ for a Cinderella result, that is ‘rising from obscurity for significant influence’ and impact in your world. Women identify with the various characters of the Cinderella story, particularly the “Everafter” adaptation starring Angelica Houston, and Drew Barrymore. The males in the story portray characters ranging from the warm, fatherly types to the Gen Y’s, authority figures and dastardly villains!

Every workplace is diverse with team members from all backgrounds and situations; just as in the film. Tarran values everyone in the story, while calling them to be more than they currently are. Whatever the story, and your role in it, there is no substitute for competency, clarity & confidence to achieve happy ever afters!
