Leading a team is a tough job, there are lots of spinning plates (as a leader told me recently), deliverables, politics to navigate, making sure you are in line with your own career aspirations, and on top of that making sure you are engaging your team and running a high performing team.
Great leaders know that they need support, clarity, a sounding board, and a safe space to talk about different options of decisions they have to make.
This is where I come in.
I help Senior Technology Leaders reduce team conflict, gain discretionary effort, and inspire team commitment to drive results.
I help leaders find solutions for team members that are great with their technical skills but may be hard to work with.
I help leaders who avoid conflict at all costs hone the skills to that of a Jedi warrior (so I have been told).
I help leaders create happier and more productive teams and increase trust.
In short, I help leaders take their teams to the next level! My role is to help leaders understand the full picture (get clarity), evaluate the gaps (assess), and create high performing teams (make and exceed goals).
The leaders I work with have great teams but somehow and in some ways miss deadlines, have poor communication that drives wedges between teammates, and there seems to be inconsistent accountability. Numerous studies have shown that people skills, communication skills, leadership skills, and self-awareness are not just “nice to haves” they are critical to the bottom line.
Add to the Bottom Line
Working with me you will see a 30% increase in your bottom line! Research proves time and time again that leaders and teams with coaches earn more and make more versus their peers that receive no coaching.
Save time and money. Stop paying hundreds of thousands of dollars because of miscommunications and team mismanagement. Reduce conflict and dysfunction.
Save on Costly Turnover
Hiring and firing is costly! Stop wasting your money and increase employee satisfaction and engagement. Create a high performing team that gets along and is fun to work with!

What's Happening At Work
"Every Monday I am ready to show up and I feel like my team isn't. They are not thinking through the roll out process, they are being pig-headed about their opinions and not working with others, and they are dropping the ball on different responsibilities I assign and I feel like I have to pick up the pieces and worse I am being blamed by my boss for these issues. It's making hate getting up in the morning."
"Deadlines are getting missed, I feel like I can't delegate and I have to do more work when I already have enough to do, on occasion I can't sleep because of a screw up I am going to have to fix. And of course I seem to always be dealing with some sort of people clash, I don't have time for. Seems like I have to work longer some days to fix their mistakes."
"I really like my team, I want us to work well and enjoy building great tech, and working with our internal clients. I want it to be less of a struggle. I also, want my boss to see that I have a great handle on my group and see that I am ready to move up in my career. I don't want my career to plateau because my team can't get it together."
The first step to change is understanding where you are at and defining where you want to go.

Whether it is a self-assessment or a 360 assessment or both, they are a great place to start the conversation to see strengths, gaps, and next steps. Assessments allow leaders and teams to be on the same page.
Are you a leading a Technology Team?
Many leaders have influence over some but struggle with others or let's face it, just one other. Let's talk about how to get your whole team engaged and collaborating.

"In a word, Diana is amazing! My experience with her has been incredibly positive. I was very impressed with her willingness to get to know me on a deep level. She was an amazing listener. What I learned from my sessions with Diana is how to be more present. I was so focused on the future on how I thought things should be, but Diana taught me how to embrace how positive things are at any given moment in time. She challenged me—and it was what I really needed. Through Diana, I also learned how to be resilient in any situation that life throws at you. When I initially met Diana, I was going through a difficult time. She really helped me turn my situation and thinking around. I highly recommend Diana to those that are truly willing to embrace change, challenge themselves, and take big/positive steps in meeting life and career goals. Coaching truly worked for me!!"

As a growing agency, we had been experiencing rapid changes. Having just hired a team of full-time employees for the first time, I approached Diana for 1-on-1 leadership coaching sessions to help me be a better manager as well as set up a goals and incentives program. Diana is patient, a great communicator and helped me to look at things in a completely different light. She's always willing to take you a step further than you anticipated, which is helpful for finding growth and new ways to approach our challenges.

"Diana’s coaching helped me overcome my challenge because she made me step back from my situation and see what I was doing to sabotage myself. She helped me gather tools to keep in my pocket to feel more confident, resilient and powerful. Diana helped me remember my capabilities, which allowed me to get back to a more positive mindset. By being open to this input and doing my homework – because coaches don’t do the work for you! – in a matter of weeks, I went from stay-at-home mom to sales exec doing what I had been trying to do for over a year. In the end, making a life change is an ongoing process. Working with Diana and taking advantage of her breadth of experience put me on a new, empowered path. I enthusiastically recommend Diana’s coaching to every professional interested in self-development and anyone interested in making a positive life change."
