Leading Positive Workplace Change


“We all have a critical role to play as leaders of change, in creating and sustaining mentally healthy workplaces. Our future world of work depends on it.”

Tanya Heaney-Voogt


Tanya’s driving belief is that workplaces can be happier, mentally healthier places to spend our time.

These workplaces are not soft and fluffy. It’s not about the absence of challenge, accountability, responsibility or at times struggle in the workplace.  Far from it, as we know struggle is actually good for us.

But it is about creating environments that enable everyone to bring their best selves to work.

Mentally healthy workplaces are not an optional extra; they’re a business imperative. And as Leaders, we all have a role to play.


Tanya is a mentally healthy workplaces expert, safe & effective leadership coach and workplace change facilitator, helping leaders, teams and organisations to thrive in this rapidly changing and high demand world of work.

With a 25-year career leading people, projects and change across the health sector Tanya now helps workplaces to develop mentally healthy work practices, strengthen workplace cultures; and develop safe, effective and high performing leaders and teams.

Her engaging and authentic approach is always remarked upon as she brings life to her content, helping people absorb key information and implement the strategies required to achieve true change.

Tanya’s presentations are lively, interactive, relevant and informative. She has her finger on the pulse with the latest in all areas of workplace psychology, without losing sight of what has worked well and continues to do so. I felt like I was being included in the conversation and invited to be part of the solution, not being talked at which was refreshing. Thank you!


Tanya was fabulous, delivered the exact content we need at the moment and read the room so well. Tan was engaging, informative and made complex concepts understandable. It was great to walk away from the session with something we can use straight away. Tan spoke to all levels of experience in the room and the session will be so helpful to our next steps as a leadership team.

“Tanya was able to quickly respond to our needs. She is intuitive and really able to get to the core issues that needed to be addressed with our team. Her ability to connect across a wide cross section of our workforce was especially appreciated and we got some great feedback from the team who spoke about her warmth and ability to connect quickly and that they felt heard, without soliciting this.”

“Yet again Tanya has managed to take a complex issue and break it down into bite sized pieces. Her ability to formulate relatable and relevant content from her vast knowledge is not only a great help to us as people and culture champions but inspirational. Thank you!”
