Graham talks down-the-line with leadership mentor, and South Carolina city councillor Tameika Isaac Devine. They discuss her upbringing, how her father’s history, growing up in the segregated south encouraged her advocacy, leading through turbulence, and juggling her role on the city council with her full-time job as an attorney in a law firm she founded in 2001.
In 2002, at the age of 29, Tameika became the first African American woman to serve on the city council. She still serves on the city council, and has overseen dramatic weather events, civil action (recently in the form of the removal of the confederate flag), and the church shooting that made international headlines. During these events, Tameika has not simply presided over these events, but actively worked within her community to help recover from, or otherwise make sense of them.
Graham and Tameika also discuss her take on work-life integration, including defining and managing goals, measuring success, avoiding burnout and saying “no”.
Graham Allcott is the founder of time management training company Think Productive.
