Writer, Speaker, Trainer and Coach, Tanya Michelle has fulfilled all these roles during a career in Human Performance Improvement that spans over 20 years, yet remains fresh, innovative and cutting edge. Tanya’s philosophy is that the best trainer/speaker is one who is always learning, applying and growing. She thrives on not only learning new things, but sharing that knowledge in a way that people "get it" and can effectively apply it in their own lives.
Tanya Michelle’s heart is performance improvement, and her passion is people. She has dedicated her career to improving working conditions/relationships, building teams, crafting leadership, and helping individuals identify strengths, passions and contributions. While much of Tanya’s work has been in corporate settings, she has always focused on individual development, believing an organization is only as strong as its weakest individual contributor, and that building the individual – maximizing each person’s contribution – ultimately creates the strongest, most effective organization.
As a speaker, Tanya Michelle has been characterized as magnetic, inspiring, motivating, with a keen insight and expertise in drawing the best out of participants while providing paradigm changing, impactful content. Tanya has been a catalyst for hundreds, helping them find and perfect their purpose, connect to their greater self and create the life they desire, rather than simply exist.
Tanya has spoken to globally diverse groups including audiences with members representing over 65 countries. She has worked with small groups of less than 10 to over 2000 with consistent quality and effectiveness. She has the keen ability to engage even the toughest audiences, build trust and demonstrate value. Her style is straight-forward, inspiring, engaging -- with a dash of humor. Tanya Michelle believes in maximizing interaction and she demonstrates an almost unparalleled ability to read and effectively respond to the needs of her audience. Inevitably, those who reluctantly attend a training session with Tanya, find that she pulls them in, gets them excited, and helps them find value. She is an “edutainer” at heart!
Tanya speaks on topics such as communication, team building, sales and customer service, personal and professional development, and personal/professional life management strategies.
Tanya is the author of two upcoming books – On My Way To The Top: Life Lessons From An Elevator, due out late 2015, and The Secret To Getting Started: Moving Beyond Mere Existing to Living Your Life, scheduled for early 2016.
