Living life to the fullest doesn’t have to be an abstract concept, but something that can be obtained if only we would take a 1 degree shift. Tania Carriere is deeply curious about what it means to be living our “best life”, so curious in fact that she travels the world curating immersive journeys to explore life’s biggest questions. Tania is a renowned leadership consultant and ICF Certified Positive Psychology and Leadership Coach. Her mission is to bring leadership and experiential learning practices to create the deeply engaging learning environments needed to effect impactful and resonant behavioural, emotional and relational change. In addition, her work with Advivum Journeys involves making sure people, who are curious like her, are able to retreat and go on their inner journey to inspire and provoke real change.

Be sure to tune into this episode and learn from Tania the impact of using discomfort as a tool for change.
