Shaping your business future

in culture, change and leadership

I have worked extensively with executive teams, individuals and businesses on their journey to success across Australia and around the globe.

Working with Tammy Tansley has influenced and help shape a competent and highly functioning leadership team. She continuously inspires us to be at our best. Her integrity and clarity instil great motivation and a clear pathway to excellence. It is a pleasure and a privilege to work with Tammy.
When I was promoted to CFO, I asked Tammy to help me develop the skills and confidence I needed for the new role.  With Tammy’s help I realised that I already had them, I just needed some assistance in unlocking them.  Tammy and I worked through a number of diverse areas including conflict management, fear of public speaking, identifying and dealing with different behaviours, removing catastrophic thinking and effective staff appraisals.  Tammy challenged my preconceptions, pushed me to do things I didn’t want to do and was not scared to point out when I was not following the path we had embarked on.  As we near the end of this path I feel that I am a different person professionally and personally than when we started.  My self-confidence, ways of thinking and general effectiveness have all improved significantly.  I look forward to calling on Tammy in the future as I continue my journey of self-improvement.
With Tammy’s coaching, I have learnt not only to be a better leader for my team but also gain confidence and take charge of my own development.  Every session with Tammy was informative and insightful.  There were many light bulb moments and share of laughter and tears too!  Tammy was my coach at the beginning of the journey but at the end, I realised I have also gained a friend!
I joined Brownes nearly 4 years ago and Tammy was one of the first people I met and she still continues (thankfully) to play a key role within Brownes and also to me personally. Her leadership experience and knowledge is second to none and what works is her no-nonsense, practical and simple advice and coaching on various matters ranging from dealing with conflict, questionable leadership styles, organisational culture to negotiation and change management to name but a few. Tammy’s openness and honesty combined with her extremely personable style encourages that trust and respect to be built very early on in the relationship and it just continues to grow and develop, as have I both personally and as an HR Leader with Tammy’s support and guidance. Thank you Tammy for your help over the last 4 years for myself and for Brownes, I would recommend you in a heartbeat!
I would just like to express my sincere gratitude for your amazing support during the past few months. Your professional advice and extensive knowledge of the issues we needed to resolve gave me great confidence when confronted with such a difficult and uncomfortable HR situation.

When I was introduced to Tammy I was in a stale period professionally. I knew I needed to make a change but I didn’t know how. Half my battle was working out what I wanted to be - I am an Accountant by trade but had spent so many years in the same Company being anything and everything they needed me to be so wasn’t sure who I was or what I wanted to be anymore. I had an inherent belief that I couldn’t be a CFO and Tammy challenged that. Her direction and support made me challenge my own thinking, instead of thinking of all of the reasons I couldn’t be a CFO, I started seeing all of the reasons I could! I could look at myself through other peoples eyes. Tammy encouraged me to move outside of my comfort zone, to start networking with people I didn’t know, to put myself out there on LinkedIn, to be brave and bold. If I did the work, the universe would deliver. The universe did deliver. I landed my dream CFO role, the one I never thought I would get because I wasn’t good

Working together

When I work with your organisation or team, or provide one on one coaching, you can expect:

a personalised approach for your business and your particular culture and circumstances;

development of sustainable solutions;

a focus on innovation and a willingness to think outside the box;

honesty, integrity and values;

straight-talking, clear discussion without consultant jargon or mumbo jumbo; and

to build a long term relationship which transfers knowledge and grows capability.

Walk the walk of business success

I don’t just talk the talk, I walk the walk. And I’ll help you to do the same. My approach to coaching and leadership is reflected in my first book, Do What You Say You’ll Do, a book for new leaders and those reinventing their leadership style.

I understand some of the common fears and barriers to leadership success, and how to defeat them.

My toolkit

With over 25 years as a human resources and leadership specialist, my toolkit includes IECL and ICF coaching accreditation, HBDI Extended Disc, Prosci Change methodology and Lominger Leadership and Team Effectiveness.

Tammy Tansley

I am energetic and innovative. I am business focused, pragmatic and have a ‘can do’ approach. I love working with businesses who want to make a difference, who want to change and improve and who want to see what’s truly possible.

Since 2011, I have been asked to judge the Telstra Business Womens’ Awards and started judging the Telstra Business Awards in 2015.

I am also involved in a number of charities and mentoring progammes in WA and nationally. My most recent board appointment was Bridging the Gap. Giving back when you can is an important part of what I believe in and who I am.

I am a mother to two beautiful little girls, a founding member of the Pets of Older Persons programme (POOPs WA) and a runner training for my first half marathon. I have travelled and lived all over the world, but am very happy to call Perth home. I love to write, and to read.. a lot! And I love good food.

If you would like to get in contact with me, you can send me a message.
