Tanya partners with her clients as an agent for change, learning and growth.  She views leadership development and coaching as a focused journey of exploration, one that provides clients with a greater understanding and awareness of themselves, others and the systems within which they operate. Her approach is one of sound academic knowledge coupled with practical hands-on experience. She helps clients to unlock their own solutions through self-awareness, dialogue, experimentation and critical thinking. Her aim is to see people flourish, re-engage with their authentic selves, leverage their strengths, achieve their goals and live a life filled with meaning and purpose.
