Hi, I’m Tanya.
I’m a mum of two small blonde terrors, wife, sister, daughter, neighbour, friend, and of course a facilitator (leadership development) and a coach. I love working with other people, particularly parents, who need encouragement and support to build their personal value, and to really leverage their skills and experiences – especially the ones you overlook!
Let’s face it, there is a multitude of different coaching styles, types and approaches out there. It is really important to find one which resonates with you, and which will help you to identify and achieve your aspirations.
I not only rely on my Leadership Coaching qualifications and expertise to support you, but also share the wealth of knowledge and experience that I have collected after 20 odd years in a variety of business industries. With 8 of those years spent managing staff, and another 7 of which involved developing my own enterprise, there is a diversity of interesting stories and opportunities to learn that come with that. In terms of qualifications, I am a Chartered Manager with certifications in Coaching (Growth Coaching), Business degrees (Bachelor of Business, Masters of Business Administration), Teaching qualifications (Grad Cert in Tertiary Education, Cert IV in Training and Education), and accreditations in i4 Neuroleader assessments, DISC and Extended DiSC, and Genos Emotional Intelligence. When I work with you, I leverage the best and worst of my experiences with these to help make sure you are traveling on your best path to success.
Ultimately, my focus is you. I am driven by a desire to help others realise and achieve their potential. So rather than rolling out a one-size-fits-all coaching experience which many organisations do, I aim to work with you in a way which suits both of us.
Are you ready?
So tell me…
- Do you want to be doing something more meaningful, but feel guilty or worried that it would mean you are not being the best mum you can? It’s possible!
- Did you know that all those skills you developed to manage as a parent are invaluable in the workplace or in your own business? It’s true!
- Would you prefer to be doing something you love AND still being a great role-model and parent? You can!
“I was stuck. Unable to find a way forward and therefore the motivation to really bring my whole self to my work. Working with Tanya was awesome. She was energetic and passionate and that was infectious. She also could see through my excuses, calling me out on a few things and helping me set my bar higher. It was exactly the firm but friendly approach I needed. Also, a big part of my focus and energy is how she helped me find ways to confidently, authentically and genuinely promote myself.
After working with Tanya, I became much more focused and energised. It really helped me to be held to account. What I’ve noticed since then is that I have a much clearer sense of direction which has allowed me to make more strategic decisions. i.e. I turned down some work that was not in alignment, to deliberately create time for my private clients. As a result, I’ve seen existing clients ramp up their work with me, and have had discussions with a brand new, prestigious client which is so exciting.
Tanya, I can’t thank you enough for sharing your expertise with me. You have incredible skill at helping people find clarity in the complexity of being human. Anyone who is struggling to reach for the stars and find their way forward will benefit from being coaching by you. You are professional, warm and engaging as you help each person find their potential and act as their personal cheer squad as they smash their goals.”
“When I started working with Tanya, I had just started a new job as a consultant. I was hoping to build more confidence in my ability. I was feeling uncertain and anxious about work.
When it came to coaching, I was a bit worried that it would be confrontational and that the coach wouldn’t completely understand, or I wouldn’t be able to explain properly. As it turns out, I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Tanya was easy to talk to and conversation flowed naturally.
Tanya was kind, empathetic and inspired me to think differently. I really enjoyed having some take outs at the end of each session, where I had something to work on and build upon. I felt relaxed, listened to and confident to undertake the suggestions we formed during the session.
We focused on the areas that I was struggling and talked about ways to approach things. I realised that I wasn’t too far off the mark with many of my concerns and that I just needed to take a slightly different approach. I felt comfort that my gut feeling was right and that sparked confidence in putting some approaches into action. At the end of the sprint I was exhausted with a sense of relief that I was on the right path.
Tanya is easy to talk to, gives good, sound and easy to follow advice that really made a difference.”
“Tanya’s experience in leadership, business and teaching – as well as her compassion, humour and coaching skills – make a powerful cocktail of coaching arsenal. Plus I know she understands how challenging the juggling act of motherhood, life and career can be from real-life personal experience. If I was looking to unleash my potential, advance my career or build my own business while still being a present and loving mum – I’d be booking in with Tanya quick smart!”
