About Me

Greetings and thank you for visiting my blog.  My name is Dr. Tara Madden-Dent and I specialize in educational leadership and international education.  My purpose is to facilitate your successes in today’s competitive global market through innovative educational applications.

I own How Leaders Should Lead Institute, to teach international students, employees, and their families the most effective ways to prepare for their transition and adjustment into the United States culture.  I promise that with my consultation and training, your relocation experience will save you time and money as you avoid unpredictable frustrations associated with culture shock. Regardless of your international goals (professional or academic), my invaluable services will make you more productive, successful, happy, and healthy.
