In this first episode of our best-of series, we talk to Tracy J. Edmonds. From the outside looking in, her life couldn't have been sweeter: A high-profile executive job with a Fortune 30 company at which she excelled. But on the inside, where she discovered it really counts, her career had come at a high cost because of a self-imposed crucible: not being her authentic self. So she decided to embrace both her figurative and literal wild hair -- trading her corner office for a cubicle and tackling a vision that not only meshed with her gifts and passions but also allowed her to live who she truly was rather conform to some corporate mold. She's found her life of significance in coaching leaders -- focusing on other women of color -- that to be the best versions of themselves, they have to be the real versions of themselves.
