“Diane has taught me how to be more productive yet work less. This was a completely foreign concept to me since I have achieved most levels in my career through hard work and then working harder. I had always worked under the assumption that I had to be “in control” for anything to really get done right. Diane has taught me to rely on the skills and abilities of others and to feel comfortable in delegating key tasks. This has allowed me to elevate my level of thinking to more strategic concerns. Another positive result of this lesson is that for the first time in my professional career, my stress level is down yet my productivity and results have soared.
Over the years, I have been through many management training programs, leadership seminars, behavioral effectiveness training, and motivational programs. While this training was helpful, none of these classes ever truly impacted me to the point where I changed my behavior. While working with Diane, I have changed my management style, my communication delivery, and my behavior. The past several months have been eye-opening for me and I have a renewed passion for improving myself not just to become a better manager but also to simply become a better person.”
