A leading coach to notable female leaders and impact-driven celebrities-AITai's mastery is in connecting us to our brilliance and teaching us to live and lead from it each day.

Speaking Topics
  • Why We Should All Be Genius Stacking

    Each and every one of us came to this world with an extraordinary form of brilliance just waiting to be expressed. We all have gifts, and work becomes a place of boundless possibility when we stack those gifts to create an expression that is entirely unique to us. In this conversation, Amina shares her personal story of how combining her background in business with her training in mindfulness and nutrition catapulted her career to the next level. Learn how to discover your gifts and connect them in a way that allows you to work from a place of you fullest expression and make the greatest impact.

  • Is Codependency Sabotaging Your Work?

    While we readily understand the impact that codependency can have on close interpersonal relationships, there is a striking lack of conversation on how these issues affect us in the workplace. Amina will share her personal story of how porous boundaries and self-sacrificing lead her to two autoimmune diseases that ignited a massive career and lifestyle shift. Learn how codependency shows up in your work and how to set realistic boundaries that honor both your purpose and your personhood.

  • Banishing Burnout by Shifting the Passion Tax

    For the first time, the World Health Organization (WHO) now recognizes burnout as a real workplace phenomenon. Learn about the biology of burnout, how it manifests, and how to reprioritize your work so that you can also honor your well-being. In this talk, Amina takes audiences through her four-part approach to acknowledging, understanding and shifting burnout. In this conversation, we’ll address the passion tax, which is the idea that people are more likely to ask you to do extra, unpaid work when you love what you do. Amina shares how the passion tax is directly correlated to burnout due to the additional invisible labor. Learn how to honor your passions and set boundaries so that you can stay in this work for a lifetime, not just a season.

  • Building An Authentic Career At Any Age

    The great work of our lives sits at the intersection of where our gifts lie, what brings us joy, what we value, what we want to impact, and what we need. When we design our path from that space, we are living our purpose. Learn how to move into a career that you are excited to get out of bed for every day.

  • Money, Underrepresented Leaders, and Economic Justice

    In the U.S., there is a substantial racial wealth gap, with White Americans holding 84 percent of total U.S. wealth—while Black Americans have 4 percent of the wealth. In this talk, we’ll explore the causes of the racial wealth gap and tactics and practices to narrow the gap from both a societal and individual level. Additionally, we’ll look at economic justice and how to build it into your money vision. Whether you’re an entrepreneur or an intrapreneur, we can all be participants in a more economically just world.

  • Underrepresented Leaders and the Ambition Trap

    We are now in the midst of a significant workplace revolution, and I believe it’s because most of what we have been taught about success and ambition is a lie. Most of us design our careers based on the imprints of our families, communities, and the world around us. Therefore, our relationship to success and ambition is rarely our own. We spend a lifetime living into the “shoulds” and “musts” of our careers only to arrive near the top of our mountain and realize there is no joy or freedom there because it wasn’t our dream or conscious desire to start with. It happens because very few of us are actually taught to (or have the permission to) honor ourselves, our gifts, and the people around us. From my perspective, most of what we have been taught about success and ambition is misaligned and doesn’t deliver on supporting those of marginalized identities. Due to the inequities highlighted by the global pandemic (the pay gap, motherhood penalty, lack of affordable childcare, and lack of national paid leave), more than two million women have been pushed out of the workforce since 2020. Women of color and those with disabilities have been the slowest to recover. It can feel like we’re taking a step backward, but I believe we are in a moment of realignment around how to connect to our purpose and how we choose to live and lead. In this talk, I will take audience members through my five-part framework to reconcile our relationship to success and ambition, to release the trap and the hustle, and design work from a place of complete alignment.
