We Coach Leaders To Success…

“For every hour I spent with Diane, it repaid itself 40 times over in that it made my entire work week more productive. The best coaches succeed by helping others truly get what they want and Diane lives that mantra.

By being in the moment, asking probing questions at just the right time and keeping me focused on my original goals, Diane ensured I was mentally prepared for whatever might come my way for the rest of the week and beyond.”

“Working with Diane as my Executive Coach was an amazing experience. She helped me overcome personal and professional obstacles that I hadn’t even recognized before which was very enlightening. With her help, I was able to recognize where I needed to make improvements in my life to achieve balance in my home and work life.Diane works with you to look deep within and come up with your own decisions for your personal best. She was a strong mentor for me and helped bring clarity to my important role within my organization. Diane is very passionate about helping Development professionals achieve extraordinary results both personally and professionally. Non-profit organizations always have limited funds for professional development but it is well worth the investment to consider working with an Executive Coach like Diane to help you achieve your personal best and yield improved fundraising results.”

Her leadership kept a group of “Chatty Cathys” on task for a full day of focused critical thinking, planning and sharing; we would have been lost without her. The room vibrated all day with positive female energy that left me feeling emotional and excited to get back to work.”– Jackie Adamthwaite

We Help You Find the Path To Success in Life…

“Working with Diane has supported me with creating my version of an “inspired life.” She created a safe, non-judgmental environment that allowed me to explore my dreams and verbalize them in a way I had been unable to do on my own.

This impacted my confidence immensely and she helped me to see the courage I had inside myself to pursue what I was passionate about. My work with Diane has readjusted my goals for the future and I am clear about what is important to me. If you want things to change, you need to call Diane!”

Instead of offering advice, Diane encouraged me to dig deep within myself and take action. Today I feel re-energized about my work and confident in the choices I made. I would highly recommend Diane as a coach to anyone looking for support, inspiration and results!”
