What People Say

Christie Henry

Director, Princeton University Press

“Dianne has been an invaluable advisor and coach to me personally as a leader and has also helped me to assess and develop an empowered leadership team at PUP. Her organizational assessment skills are much like an ethnographer’s;  through a combination of observations, conversations, and exemplary listening skills, she was able to understand the unique community and personality of PUP and identify prospects for organizational evolution. Dianne has helped us as an organization to instill a new operational culture of transparency, trust, collaboration, and equity and inclusion.”

Nikko Odiseos

President, Shambhala Publications

“After a relatively brief time spent questioning and hearing from our staff and leaders, Dianne identified opportunities for organizational growth and presented us with executable action items appropriate for our business and culture.

A worthy investment.”

Jill Dolan, Ph.D.

Dean of the College, Professor of Theater, Annan Professor of English, Princeton University

“With a light touch but a firm hand, Dianne has guided me toward best practices that have enhanced my leadership abilities.  Her empathy and insight have helped me find the right path forward through various complex situations and given me the confidence to be clear and strong about my choices. 

She’s an excellent coach.”

Justine Cassell, Ph.D.

Inaugural International Chair, Paris Artificial Intelligence Research Institute; Associate Dean, Technology Strategy & Impact for the School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University

“With her straightforward but kind manner and her ability to both question and listen, Dianne helped me learn more about myself and, as a result, improve my effectiveness as a leader. She was able to quickly understand the unique complexities of the organization and that also enhanced her ability to support my efforts to become a more impactful leader. I highly recommend Dianne as a coach."
