HTI, Hearts Together Inspire, was born out of Tanya and Matt’s experiences in their personal and professional lives. Having experienced and witnessed a ton of disfunction resulting from relational conflict in business settings, they realized that the quality of people’s relationships dictate their quality of life at work and at home and that there must be a better way to navigate conflict and win together.

Once they realized that relationships are the core of everything, they were inspired to contribute to creating possibilities for great relationships regardless of the conditions encountered. Tanya and Matt believe that great relationships allow the best version of ourselves to emerge so that we can step into excellence. They now work collaboratively with others to amplify creativity and create a world that we all want to live in, one that’s filled with unlimited possibilities. Ultimately, they believe that together, we’re exponentially better.  


Tanya and Matt developed HTI’s proven leadership and relationship map and navigation methodology to serve this. These accessible tools allow people, no matter what the situation, to not only survive conflict and disconnection but recover from it and thrive, while remaining in connection and striving for greatness. The work they do shifts people’s lives and relationships in a more positive direction, at work and at home, with ripple effects outwards. The stronger our relationships, the more easily we can focus on achieving our desired goals, together. Tanya and Matt are driven by a passion for your results.
