Stories That Inspire Us

Stories That Inspire Us / The Author Series, welcomed to today’s podcast, Thursday, March 23, 2023, Dr. Amber Tichenor, PhD.  Dr. Tichenor has a Ph.D. in I/O Psychology and is the founder of To Be, Coaching + Consulting®.  A thought leader on the topic of women’s rivalry, Amber has 20+ years’ experience as an Organizational Change Strategy and Leadership consultant where she helped guide businesses through transformational change. She is also the author of her Book:  Behind Frenemy Lines: Rising Above Female Rivalry To Be Unstoppable Together.

Although I have not had an opportunity to read her book in its entirety, I can tell you this is a book that ALL women should read!  Dr. Tichenor has written her book in a way that really speaks to the matter of heart when it comes to “Behind Frenemy Lines”.  She has laid out her book in (3) parts and after each story and segment, she reaches out to the reader in “Your Turn” where she engages her reader to take a moment to write their own beliefs, etc., regarding the topic at hand. 

Through her own personal stories and to those women who bravely shared their thoughts and perceptions on their “frenemy” stories, this book catapults the reader to really take a brave look not only into themselves but to others as well.

From Part 1 / The Opposition to the Last Word, her book is one of those books you cannot put down!  Thought provoking, there are several areas of her book that I went back to re-read and journal my thoughts and perceptions to the very specific questions put forth as I read with great intent.  There were many times that through different business associates or life in general, where certain things did pop up for me.

Dr. Tichenor’s podcast was an eye opener for me in more ways than one.  From her sharing of these stories, to the mindset of those who are in our circle to dealing with unresolved trauma and forgiveness, it was a way to look at a situation from a different lens (almost as for every action there is a reaction and why not be proactive with that reaction.)

No doubt that Dr. Tichenor is deeply passionate about addressing the phenomenon of rivalry between women.  She consults with organizations and offers speaking engagements and workshops on the importance of the phenomenon, the challenges and behaviors it presents, along with coping and recovery steps. 

Dr. Tichenor's goal is to promote collaboration over competition, to empower women to find their voice, leave the rivalry behind, and team up with a community of like-minded women who support each other to be unstoppable together.
