Dana is expert at coaching executives on complex leadership, management and interpersonal issues. When I had tension with other leaders in my organization, Dana was brought in to help mediate and teach me how to grow those relationships. I was so impressed by her expertise that I hired her to perform team assessments of my own direct reports. And now that my organization has grown, I’m once again turning to her expertise for team building to integrate groups that have historically had diverse business cultures.
Dana is awesome to work with; she is adaptable and able to make genuine connections with her audiences at various levels in ways that are personal and relevant to them. Dana is an expert at coaching and communicating and her students respond. Transitioning from the military is not easy for many veterans; it’s a totally different style and culture. The effects and ‘aha moments’ learned during Dana’s workshops however, are so profound, Warriors leave with an awareness of how their styles may be received by others and a newfound confidence that they can express themselves in ways that are effective and strengthens relationships. The proof is that her programs have consistently been ranked in the Top 3 workshops by her military veteran students
If you want a coach that is willing to help you brainstorm how to move through a problem, Dana is such a great partner. If you are looking for someone to help you understand who you are and why you work the way you do, Dana is again a perfect match. She helped me uncover some incredibly deep-rooted beliefs and limitations so I could consciously choose how I wanted to move forward. I have gained so much having worked with Dana! I would recommend her without reservation.
Dana’s coaching was critical to adjusting how I looked at my business and my life. By moving past the things that were holding me back, I was able to begin doing bigger and better things than I had thought possible. I have learned more about myself in six months than I have in 30 years. Coaching was such a critical ingredient to my success.
Dana delivered training programs on DiSC and Influence at our company and was highly effective. She conveys a deep knowledge and comfort with her material that allows her to easily establish credibility and interact well with all personality types and people at all levels of the organization. She’s quick to understand needs and adjust her content to address those needs. She is highly skilled at facilitating discussions and I strongly recommend her as a learning and development partner.
Dana was an invaluable resource for me as Chief Medical Officer with the San Diego Blood Bank. She helps individuals recognize areas of strength and areas for improvement, and suggests practical strategies for improving interpersonal communications.
Dana is an outstanding professional who has great insight into leadership and personalities and behaviors. She understands the business environment and delivers on-target and creative solutions to unique issues. In both 1:1 and group situations she quickly gets to the core issue(s) and is effective at keeping clients focused on what matters in addressing that issue. She is highly professional, passionate about her work and her clients and delivers results.
Dana has been a great partner and help for me both at General Atomics and in my previous role at Qualcomm. She brings a such great wealth of experience and skills, but, more importantly, to me, it’s Dana’s creative insight and wealth of character that makes such a difference to me. It’s clear that the leadership team here a GA found that in her as well.
