She believes thriving starts with deeply aligned and integrated personal leadership - without which we can’t effectively (or sustainably) lead anyone. Tanis also believes that leaning into joy is our sacred responsibility, and that play is the way home. When we decide to thrive, we play by a different set of rules. We explore these rules and teachings during our thought-provoking conversation.
