Though I was unable to join in person, I thoroughly enjoyed your facilitation of the strengths and Wolfpack sessions. I found you to be incredibly genuine and truly invested in our group through all of our conversations, the questions you asked and the activities we participated in. I know hybrid sessions can be difficult on the presenter as well as the participants however I absolutely felt valued and included in the conversations and for that I am grateful. Thank you for your time, your care & attention, and your infectious personality. I look forward to being able to work with you again in the future 🙂

I am proud to recommend Tanja and Potentia HR! Through coaching she encouraged me to speak up and show how the role of HR was much more than an administrative position. She was a big supporter and brought new ideas from her experience to programs I was working on including performance management and building a coaching culture with our leaders. Tanja was always willing to share her vast knowledge and her resources. Through our time working together she showed a passion for Human Resources that was contagious. I am thankful for the mentor/mentee time we shared together and we now have her involved in providing coaching to our leadership as well as engaging our team in various workshops.

Working with Potentia HR was a great experience for our company. Kevin was an effective communicator and really listened to our needs for the role we were looking to fill.

I met Tanja as a student in the Master of Management program at UBC in 2017. She was tasked with individual leadership coaching and instructing career development portions of the program. Tanja posed the right questions at the right time to support me in making tough decisions. I have been able to look at challenges in a constructive way and my confidence has grown because of her guidance. I have improved at handling difficult conversations with the tools Tanja has taught me.

I relied on Tanja for career development coaching for the better part of 2 years, during which time she listened to the challenges that I was facing, helped me identify career development strategies, and coached me through their execution. Her coaching assisted me in re-organizing priorities within my personal and professional life, focused my training and development priorities which have led to more free time at home and a promotion at work

Project Manager, City of West Kelowna

We brought Tanja in from a consulting and best practices perspective during a season of transition in our Talent department. She did not need long to get up to speed with our realities, and was very helpful in fulfilling urgent needs, and longer range blueprint requests. She has a very friendly demeanour, combined with a get it done mindset. I would recommend engaging Tanja’s years of HR experience for your organization needs.

My experience with Tanja as a candidate for a senior management role was extremely positive. She conducted herself in a manner as a highly polished professional yet kept her approachability at a level that made me feel comfortable as a candidate. Her knowledge of the organization she was representing was impeccable and easily answered questions that I posed to her. In addition, she provided documentation to me for review in preparation and maintained constant contact throughout the recruitment process. I found Tanja to be extremely engaging and positive and would highly recommend her services as an HR Professional myself.
