Coaching technology leaders to deliver while energizing themselves and their teams

Happy Teams Excel

An organization’s culture is a stronger differentiator than its strategy. But creating environments where teams and their leaders can thrive doesn’t happen overnight.

I work with organizations and individual leaders to identify areas for immediate opportunity, along with longer term goals.

Someone who gets “IT”

With over 25 years of hands-on technical and senior management experience, I know firsthand the challenges that people at all levels in technology face. From strategic multi-million dollar projects to all-night production implementations, I’ve been through it all.   LEARN MORE

Testimonials

“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

“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

“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

“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

“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

“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.”
