After ten years working in mainstream education, I experienced a full-scale burnout. Looking back now, it’s clear that I was showing signs for a long time before I actually gave myself a break. I realised that I needed to be more in control of my time, and also, more importantly, that I wanted to actively help teachers to find an alternative, more positive, way of working. This lead me to set up my own company: Lifted and Gifted Education.
The first step on my journey, alongside healing myself, was to learn as much as I could about human behaviour and communication. I studied Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Mindfulness, Body Language, and Personality Types, all of which helped me to form a clearer understanding of how our communication styles and behaviours can lead us into dark and difficult places, including:
My learning informed the creation of two bespoke programmes for CEOs and senior leadership teams in schools and creative businesses. Both programmes are designed to dramatically improve workplace communication by exploring the cause and effect of absenteeism, anxiety and burnout. My main focus is to empower leaders to find fresh, positive approaches to their role, thus enhancing efficiency, creativity, and job satisfaction.
Tanya observes individual personality types, body language, how clients behave and engage with others under pressure and in group situations is the behaviour positive or negative. Once she has observed the differences she gives support that help them to understand themselves when working with others. As a teacher she has had many roles to play from social worker, nurturer, positive role model and friend. When working with leaders She is constantly learning and I feels it is a positive exchange that help them to find strategies that support her clients to find a positive in their current situation.
This ten-week, relationship building programme is designed for leadership teams in schools and creative businesses. We focus on developing a positive approach to leadership, allowing participants to unlock and enhance their own creativity and that of their teams. Expect a non-judgemental space in which to learn more about yourself, others, and the power of effective and creative communication.
This programme focuses on supporting leaders who have taken time out from their leadership roles and are in need of space to reflect and re-focus. We provide an opportunity for you to explore and expand your understanding of yourself and your leadership style, empowering you to return to work with confidence, resilience, empathy and drive.
