ENGAGING TALKS WITH REAL TAKEAWAYS

What My Clients and Colleagues Say

Diane was great to work with. She made a difference in my life through helping me understand my core values and the way I process information. She helped me become more aware of my thought process and thus my actions, and reactions that followed. She is a great listener and a good sounding board. She does not judge and listens proactively. I would recommend her to anyone seeking a life coach. Diane has a gift and I am so happy she has chosen to share it with so many others.

Jennifer, Florida

I had two great opportunities to work with Diane as a peer/colleague in an IT-investment management environment. She is an excellent listener and communicator, and a trusted advisor; other team members were drawn to her for her guidance as well. She has a great ability to see the bigger picture, and is approachable and non-judgmental. I was very encouraged by her words and the approach she uses to engage a meaningful dialogue is highly effective. I am very fortunate to have Diane as a coach and a friend.

Senior Technology Program Manager, New York

I worked on Diane’s team for 2+ years as a technical consultant. I would refer to her as the leader, but that doesn’t tell the story or accurately reflect the team dynamic that she created. Diane’s core personality created an environment of trust, caring and authenticity – always thoughtful, always doing the right thing. The team formed and grew in that context and the result was incredibly effective. 15 years later I still hear some of those team members reflect that this was the best project they have ever worked on (and the system is still in production going strong!).

Dave Cotton, Technical Specialist, California

There are few people in your career and in life that will stand for you. Diane is one of those people. Through her leadership and coaching, she has allowed me to explore, examine, and discover things that I never saw about myself before. As a result, she helped me shine a light on what is important in my being…as a leader / team member, a father / husband / parent, and even my daily interactions. I appreciate being able to see what I enjoy about life / work and continue to make empowered choices in that space that I create. Through her coaching, I was able to shift my perception and create an environment on my team based on the principle of “I can only win, when YOU win”. Thank you Diane for standing for me…I know what it is to stand for others too!

Andrew Nakamura, Senior Business Systems Analyst, California

Diane facilitated a transformative discussion centered around my core values. The tools she used to pinpoint my interests and natural talents helped to focus my energy and quiet the noise in my head interfering with creating a plan. My time with her was well spent and allowed me to establish a way forward to realize both my personal and professional goals.

Senior Manager of Continuous Improvement, California

When Diane was my manager, I always felt understood and supported. I felt I could take risks and she would have my back. I also felt like she knew me and saw potential I didn’t even knew I had. And on top of it all, she built a strong, close knit management team by instilling a sense of fun and playfulness.

SUZANNE WILSON TANI, TECHNOLOGY PROJECT MANAGER, CALIFORNIA

Building a high-performing team is hard. Retaining a high-performing team is even harder. When I became a manager and had to build a team of my own, I realized what an accomplishment it was that Diane had achieved as a leader. She established a team culture that was open, supportive, respectful, genuine, diverse, and yes, FUN. The positive environment motivated me to do more, not just for my own development, but to also raise the collective success of the whole team.

MAI NGUYEN, TECHNOLOGY MANAGER, CALIFORNIA

Diane has been one of the influential leaders in my life. I learned from her to focus on developing people’s strengths rather than their weakness. Her management and team development approach directly influenced how I build my teams today – we focus on developing strengths and the best way to set them up for success.

KEVIN J. RHODE, CTO ARIZONA

Working with Diane helped me move through a job transition powerfully. She helped me evaluate all opportunities and guided me as I chose the path that was the best for me. With Diane’s skill and insight, I was able to really examine my blocks and desires to make a strong choice and back up that choice with tangible action.
