  • We brought Tanja in from a consulting and best practices perspective during a season of transition in our Talent department. She did not need long to get up to speed with our realities, and was very helpful in fulfilling urgent needs, and longer range blueprint requests. She has a very friendly demeanour, combined with a get it done mindset. I would recommend engaging Tanja's years of HR experience for your organization needs.

Her coaching assisted me in re-organizing priorities within my personal and professional life, focused my training and development priorities which have led to more free time at home and a promotion at work.
