WHY COACHING?

The benefits to you

There are many options for leadership development including training courses, workshops, and many excellent books. Coaching transcends the didactic elements of these to create an environment where the client is able to really learn and put in practice that learning and, importantly, be challenged and held accountable for forward progress. In multiple studies the return on investment of coaching has been calculated as several-fold, resulting in empowered, confident leaders who are able to make changes to their approach, achieve unprecedented results and grow their capabilities and accomplishments.
If you or your employees are …

  • Recently promoted to management or leadership
  • Recently hired into a position of leadership
  • Facing a culturally or politically challenging environment
  • Trying to do too much and feeling inadequate
  • Lacking the confidence to take your rightful “place at the table”
  • Afraid to pursue ambitious goals for which you/they are eminently qualified.

… and are willing to learn, work hard and make the changes necessary to achieve success, then coaching may provide the needed impetus and support.

“Working with Diana proved to be a life-changing experience for me. In a world of constant change, she helped me navigate through 4 bosses, 3 department changes, one promotion and multiple other organizational changes within the span of 12 months. Her coaching helped me tackle some of hardest personal obstacles I have struggled with for years, helping me find my voice and demonstrate my value in a large and shifting organization. My professional growth accelerated, and looking back to where I was, I can’t believe how much progress I have made. Diana’s knew instinctively what I needed, and helped me manage difficult professional challenges and relationships. She worked with me to develop a personal brand that I feel good about, that isn’t about self-promotion but about letting people know what motivates me. Working with her has been an inflection point on my professional journey, and I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking to grow in their career!”

Nadya Babigian

Executive Director, Novartis

“Diana Gáler has a calm way of asking smart questions that dive deep into the heart of the matter, gently but surely getting you to directly examine the truth that you may have been avoiding. She helps bring clarity to complex situations, helping you decide for yourself which is the right path. I love working with her and wholeheartedly recommend her to others.”

Renee Wills

Co-Founder, Client Lead, Brick City Greenhouse

“Diana Gáler was the perfect coach for me as I worked through a significant transition in my career. She provided excellent information and insight, and, most importantly of all, she challenged my perspectives and assumptions which provided me with broader views of my own experience and the organization within which I was working. Now that I am in another position, I can anticipate returning for additional coaching in order to help me reach even higher levels of excellence. I highly recommend Diana for executive coaching.”
