Diane joined Synergy Global in 2009. Her background is in IT (IBM), Outsourcing (EDS) & Project Management (Microsoft). Through these experiences she identified that she really enjoyed helping smart people work together better. To enable this to happen more often, her career expanded into professional coaching.
She has worked across all levels in organisations, from blue collar workers, graduate hires, junior, middle & senior management to executive leaders & Board members, across the Private (eg KPMG, Suncorp, QBE, Holden), Public (Australian Department of Defence, WorkCover, South Australian Ambulance) & Not-for-Profit (Alzheimer’s Australia & Diamond Valley Learning Centre) sectors.
Her professional style is founded in mindfulness, supporting people to “be more of themselves with skill”. (Goffey & Jones 2009). She guides individuals & teams through the complexities of aligning personal values, beliefs, attitudes & behaviours to achieve outcomes – all the while being authentic & leveraging personality quirks rather than trying to suppress them. She is passionate about measuring results & works with clients to seek out qualitative & quantitative metrics which support sustainable, profitable business transformation.
Diane draws on experience & professional development to support people to easily take action by:
Raising awareness of unique combination of creativity, compassion & courage for you & your team
Expanding thinking around cognitive & social-emotional challenges, decreasing stress & increasing productivity
Achieving win-win, sustainable, comparatively easy & (mostly!) enjoyable behavioural change
Exploring individual strengths, creating excellent individual & team culture to easily improve results
Helping you identify relevant metrics for measuring & tracking progress
Diane has experienced the good, the bad & the downright ugly of addressing complexity & change. She has lived & worked in 11 cities (two of them twice), five countries & four continents. Living in Australia by choice, she has used her global experiences to expand her understanding of innovative development. She prioritises 3 things: 1) an open mind; 2) a foundation of personal values & 3) an innate sense of humour.
