About Tanya

”If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended upon the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes” – Albert Einstein

Makes you think, doesn't it? This quote resonated so deeply within me, that I decided to follow my dreams and live my purpose.  When I reflect back on my career in the last 20 years, I know that the trials and tribulations I experienced have helped me to become the person that I am today.  

I have spent the majority of my working life in a high pressured, ever changing IT service and solution organisation.  I started as a developer and worked my way into a senior management role (diverging at times by taking on training/HR roles). My focus was always on driving deadlines and achieving great results through and with competent people.  Along the way there were times where I faltered, grappling with stress, trying to integrate my home and work life, trying to keep up and always be on top of my game, sometimes feeling very alone wishing that I had an impartial person to bounce ideas and thoughts off.   

The saving grace was that most of the time life 'flowed' and things fell into place.  I always believe that hard work pays off.  'The Art of the Possible' - someone once told me, keep that thought alive.  Become the grandest vision of the grandest version of yourself.   What I realized is my passion is working with people. Inspiring, motivating, challenging a person to be the best that they can be is what gets me up in the morning. That is my reason for being.  

Whether it be in a personal context or in a work/team environment, to live life to the fullest and get the best from ourselves, isn't this what makes us all tick?  Live in the now, make conscious decisions, get rid of all the stories which can hold one back and reach for the moon.  Because even though you may not get to the moon immediately, you will still grab a few stars..

Customer Reviews

  • from Avisha Suklal - GM IT Business Partners at MBD Credit Solutions on 11 Nov 2016

    The past 6 months with guidance from Tanya has been an amazing journey for me. The sessions opened up possibilities I didn't have the courage to take on before. My successes included my qualifications in PMP,a promotion,assisting me by being a greater leader.

    This was exercised by various insights from the coaching sessions. Tanya has a unique method of coaching that assist young leaders like myself to use our strengths smartly and intimately achieving goals set by ourselves. The session opens up opportunity and a loose forces an individual to think about or make decisions that otherwise not considered by an individual. Tanya Long has helped me personally grow and look at the glass half full.

    These sessions are positive and points and individual to make clearer decisions. Further to help build emotional intelligence. Looking forward to my session next year.

    Throughout one's career you come across individuals who stand out for their exceptional Qualities and Tanya is one of those people. She is well known for her work ethic, positive attitude, team work mentality and leadership. She is well respected by everyone who has had the opportunity to work with her.

  • from Charles Meiring - Service Delivery Manager at UCS Technology Services on 15 Jan 2016

    I found the life coaching sessions to be helpful, insightful and very uplifting. Tanya Long added great value to my life and career/work perspective. She has a way of pointing out the small things and then helping you realise that these small things have a major impact on one’s life and career choices.

    Powerful ideas were discussed and even more powerful concepts were explained plus steps were given on how to reach ones goals and full potential. In my personal opinion Tanya’s life coaching is highly recommended to all persons.
