A Note from Tamara Raymond
Thank you for visiting our website. I’m Tamara S. Raymond, the founder and principal consultant at Innovative Management Consulting (IMC). Welcome.
You may be a company leader or an employee in the trenches who wants to become a company leader. Whatever your situation or desire, our firm will help you determine your career goals, discover your work identity, and reach your full leadership potential.

The IMC Story
Let me share how IMC’s story and my own personal journey are intertwined. IMC’s roots go back to my childhood. I have loved helping others since my days growing up in St. Elizabeth parish in Jamaica. There, I saw my mother, a schoolteacher and a banker, help people all the time. From her, I learned how to understand and nurture people’s hopes and dreams.
So it was natural when I left Jamaica to earn an undergraduate degree in psychology. After graduating from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin, I worked in human resources for an Atlanta-based engineering company and continued to build on my knowledge of understanding and assisting others.
Eventually, I pursued a master’s degree in organizational management at George Washington University in Washington, DC. There I had a professional identity crisis of sorts. People told me I should work for a Fortune 500 company. But I questioned myself—should I listen to my former coworkers, friends, and family, or should I listen to my own dreams?
Well, I realized I wanted to go off on my own and consult. I wanted to help individuals reach their highest potential in the workplace. So while in school, I started IMC.
Since 2006, IMC has grown to help professionals in many industries across the United States.
We have provided coaching, human resources and organizational expertise, and project management services to companies of all kinds. We help high school students get a head start on determining their career path and work identity, too. In fact, I wrote a book especially for them: Careering: The Pocket Guide to Exploring Your Future Career.
I am proof that figuring out the right career path leads to success and happiness.
I want to help YOU achieve the same result in your career, no matter who you are. I am here to help the CEO of a Fortune 500 company as well as the worker in a cubicle. The only requirement is that you should want to make a difference in the world and develop yourself to reach your goal.
If that’s you, you’ve come to the right place. I can’t wait to meet you. Contact me today!
