Every year, I teach classes of MBA students how to create a work life they're excited about, and succeed outside the traditional corporate career. For most, the work they do in my class is career-changing, and for many, it's life-changing. I apply the same teachings, exercises, and assignments to help a limited number of coaching clients transform their work, and usually, their personal and financial lives as well.  

My coaching work is structured as either a short, intense half-day strategy session, or as a 3- or 6-month engagement.

STRATEGY SESSION: This intense half-day approach is perfect for someone who is seriously contemplating a transition to independent work, and is ready to create a concrete action plan and timeline to execute. 

3- or 6-MONTH COACHING PROGRAM: For professionals in the earlier stages of planning a transition, this program will guide you step-by-step through reflection work, strategic planning, and tactical exercises to get you ready to make your move. You'll have homework assignments, regularly scheduled hour-long calls, and accountability to achieve the goals you set. 

Contact Diane to schedule a coaching session or program. 


Interesting and incredibly useful!! I came away with clear actions I could apply to my career.
One of the best courses I have ever taken.
I just wanted to send a quick note to you thanking you for your class. I finished my first book a few months ago and have been going through the editing process. In the meantime, I decided to start a software company. My first app went live on the Apple App Store two weeks ago! I just wanted to thank you for teaching such a motivational and inspirational class.
The reason that I’m writing you this email is to tell you that I took your class LITERALLY. It really inspired me ... I left Boston 10 days after graduation and I haven’t been back. I have been in around 14 countries so far, camped in national parks, been to nude beaches, met people with totally different cultures than mine, eaten incredible food, hitchhiked from country to country...Attached you will find some of the pics of the definitely the best decision I have ever made! Hopefully, you and your class will continue inspiring students!
Extremely practical, great way to think outside the box in terms of career/life.
