“Spending time in a space of self-reflection is time well spent, it is preparation for self-growth”
The Communication Doctor – Tanya Obeng
After spending time working as a teacher in mainstream education, I felt like I was constantly on a treadmill, running to no destination. When I stopped running, and walked with purpose, I viewed the world differently with my eyes opened.
The moment I allowed myself to have a positive purposeful experience, my throat chakra opened and I spoke from my heart instead of my head.
During this period, I worked with teachers on behavioural management and self-development, I felt the tension within schools and recognised the lack of their work life balance.
I made it my mission to support teachers to connect with their dreams as well as being in service to the young people. This experience allowed me to take time out an look at the school system and the curriculum.
I was inspired to develop alternative workshops with a difference, which lead to setting up: 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 to enhance or negatively impact your working environment:
Answer these questions honestly:
- Do you feel overwhelmed
- Do you connect with your team
- Do you create a safe space to communicate
- Do you need support
My learning informed the creation of two bespoke programmes for CEOs and senior leadership teams in schools, organisations and 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.
