Transforming Norm

– Leading the change to a mentally healthy workplace


A mentally healthy workplace recognises that people are at the heart of its productivity and customer interactions and that a positive and safe culture enables organisational success.

While this is revolutionary thinking for some, we all have a critical role to play as leaders of change.

Transforming Norm is your guide to creating a mentally healthy workplace, with a culture where everyone feels safe to flourish.

Based on Tanya Heaney-Voogt’s decades of experience, Transforming Norm is full of practical actions and proven strategies that cut through complexity and jargon. Tanya is clear that workplaces can be happier, better places to spend our time.

A mentally healthy workplace is not an optional extra — it’s a business imperative. So, isn’t it time you led the change?

Jonah Berger

Bestselling author of Contagious and The Catalyst

Smart, clever and successful businesses are evolving the way they work. And they must. Old ways of working reveal the toxic traits, bad leadership behaviours and unhealthy cultures that are overdue for change. No additional growth or productivity is possible when the environments and situations people work in are unhealthy. This is not about buying new ergonomic chairs or running a few mindfulness workshops! The transformation required, needed and valued by employees is possible. In this thorough and helpful book, Tanya Heaney-Voogt steps through the requirements to create workplaces where people ‘work well’. If you’re a leader, proceed with caution if you don’t have this book at your side. It’s the perfect companion to healthy change and transformation for today’s workplace.

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

She draws on her own experiences as a senior leader dealing with work overload and change saturation to support leaders to develop more sustainable individual strategies and to assist workplaces to manage the environmental factors that contribute to unsafe levels of work-related stress.

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.

Passionate about developing others, her program ensures change leaders develop necessary skills and knowledge to lead successful change safely and effectively into the future.

Her Transforming Norm™ workplace transformation program aligns with the content in this book and brings together a series of support activities previously conducted individually, into one holistic transformation program, making it much easier for workplaces to be mentally healthy.

Tanya lives in the rolling hills of Gippsland and when not working diligently in her practice can be found dining out with her husband (the beloved Mr. V), enjoying a drive through the hills or laughing with dear family and friends.
