About Dianne

“Dianne – an authentic, aware and compassionate leader of people.”   K. Radford, President & EVP

The Optimal You was born out of my desire to help people live up to their full potential. Since 2004, I’ve been privileged to walk beside hundreds of people on their journey while they challenged their perspectives and fears, developed new skills, lived more closely aligned to their values, experienced personal and professional growth, and celebrated success as they achieved things they never thought were possible. Sometimes, all it takes is one person to believe in you and champion your growth to your own level of greatness.

My background is in coaching, leadership development, communications and change management. My primary focus is building healthy workplaces filled with emotionally intelligent, coach-like leaders. I do this by working with individuals and teams either via a coaching relationship, facilitating existing or customized learning initiatives, or a combination of both. I’m certified in a number of assessment tools, including MBTI®, EQ-i 2.0 and EQ-i 360, and often use these to help clients gather feedback or other information to support them in achieving their goals.

I have experience working with leaders at all levels, from Executive to Front Line. My style is described as warm, encouraging, challenging and supportive. I often tell my clients that coaching and leadership are not for the faint of heart. Both require a lot of self reflection and hard work. Yet if a person is prepared to undertake these things with courage, candor and a commitment to creating the change they’re truly looking for, they’ll find the experience fulfilling and rewarding.

I hold a Professional Certified Coach designation through the International Coach Federation, as well as a Certified Professional Coactive Coach designation through the Coaches Training Institute. I have also completed the Coaches Training Institute’s Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching Program.

Details about my professional experience can be found here.

I treasure my time with family and friends, and can often be found nurturing my love of music and nature. A part time musician, I play with Horizon Ridge and The Still Waters. I embrace a balanced and healthy lifestyle, taking responsibility to build a strong foundation on which to live ‘The Optimal You’ within myself.
