Why Executive Coaching?

As a leader, you truly want to work differently. Create a compelling vision. Play on a bigger playing field. Make the bold gesture. Focus on what really matters.

You know it won't be easy. Maybe you've worked before at learning new behaviors, and for a while you changed. Then, autopilot kicked back in. And all the old habits returned, with predictable results.

You need a fresh perspective. That's what executive coaching can do for you.

For many executives, Executive Coaching is a defining experience -- a whole new way to look at work, a way to really "get it" in the gut, and the only way to make it stick.


Dianne has a very effective coaching style that balances the business and human elements of leadership. She has worked with several of our key executives and helped them push through some hard spots in their leadership development and team effectiveness. This has resulted in a much more aligned and effective Leadership Team. The results of her coaching were so noticeable to some of the other members of the team, that they have requested that she be allowed to coach them too! I would highly recommend Dianne for any executive coaching needs.

Dianne’s work transformed individual contributors into company leaders by enabling them to understand the importance of a global perspective in team management and decision-making. Instead of thinking merely of their individual responsibilities, Dianne’s disciples consider the overall goals, objectives and missions of the company. They are now capable of participating in key decisions regarding internal and external matters that effect the company. Obviously, this dramatic transition yielded more valuable and effective employees, and energized each of their respective career paths!.

“Your skills are exceptional. In just one meeting, I broke through a significant barrier and moved on to find the clarity I'd been seeking for a particularly sticky problem. Thank you so much!”

From Jennifer Warwick Senior Counsel Phillips and Associates

“My experience with Dianne clearly helped make me a better leader. Dianne helped me identify specific goals, and formulate a plan of action, all the while providing ongoing support for implementation of my plan. We continually analyzed the results and refined our approach. I am now definitely on track to meet my goals! I have a new found appreciation for coaching. Allocating time to reflect, refine and consult has proven to be a very valuable tool. I began coaching members of my team in the hope that they get similar benefits from coaching.”

Lior Ofir First Vice President at Countrywide Financial, Inc.

“You were a great help to me. I think of all of your coaching tips before I go into meetings and it really helps me to be very centered and effective. You were also terrific at focusing all of my energy into a single direction. Your guidance has helped me achieve exactly what I set out to do.”

Molly Miles President of Immersive Marketing.

The 1-1 nature of our coaching was better than any other leadership experience Ive had. There was better guidance, more sharing, confidentiality and trust. These helped me address challenges without defensiveness.

One of Diannes biggest strengths is that she allows the whole person to be involved in the coaching, both the business person and the private person. She puts perceptions in front of her clients without being judgemental, and then helps people deal with those perceptions. She respects her clients.

Christine Hahn Senior Director of Information Technology at DIRECTV

Dianne's style is to the point, helps you get clear in your thinking, generous with information and totally supportive and encouraging. Dianne is on my short list of coaches I recommend without reservation.

Dianne Landau is a role model of a business woman. While being supportive, she is straightforward and to the point, helps to clarify exactly what needs to be done. Her experience is inspiring and for me, she is a true role model.

Dorene LaHavi, Business Owner

One of Diannes biggest strengths is her tenacity! She has helped me go after things and get out there! This is very critical to me in promoting and growing my organization to an Enterprise Level. Dianne is also a good listener, offers very good ideas, is optimistic, and pushes her clients beyond their comfort zone to achieve things they would not have done on their own.
