Colleagues, friends and clients alike enjoy Tanyaâ€™s humor, straight-to-it approach, and story-telling because they all provide windows into her interesting past (she was a researcher and educator in marine biology) and current lifestyle hobbies (competitive triathlon, running, surfing and philosophical conversations with her VP of HR, her 13 year old dog, Oakley).Â Each story brings a relevant analogy to the business issue at hand, making the learning more fun, the process guarantee more impact, and the happiness-meter on high.
