East Brunswick, NJ – Tracy Fink is the founder of The Tortoise Institute, an executive coaching and leadership development organization dedicated to building skills needed to create more emotionally intelligent workplaces.
The Tortoise Institute’s services are primarily focused on self-awareness, compassionate leadership and resiliency for individuals and teams.
“None of these changes can happen until people get off auto-pilot and start being present in the world around them. It is hard because of all the distractions, information, assumptions, habits. We teach people to move from auto-pilot to awareness in order to be more engaged, less stressed and purposeful.”
“People think that compassion is a weakness when actually it's a superpower, especially at work,” says Tracy.
With an MBA and a bachelor’s degree in psychology, Tracy has always had a fascination with people and business. She had served as a marketing director in professional services for over 20 years prior to launching The Tortoise Institute. The lessons she teaches her clients helped her personally.
Like the Tortoise and the Hare fable from which the institute gets his name, slow and steady wins the race. With an attitude of kindness and curiosity, as well as confidence in the outcome, Tracy believes we can all be like the tortoise and keep on tract to meet our goals no matter the challenge. Also, like the tortoise, we carry our “stuff” with us. At The Tortoise Institute we teach people how to work with their own stuff without denying or suppressing it.
