WHY I COACH

Over nearly 30 years as a scientist and leader of scientists in the pharmaceutical industry I learned that, much more that science, I loved helping people discover and realize their potential.

As I looked over my career, I was proudest not of the projects I worked on or the articles I wrote, but of the people that I helped to speak up in meetings, take on leadership roles, lead successful, results-oriented teams and become better managers.

When I had the opportunity to leave my job and become a coach, I jumped at the chance.

As a coach, I work with people in a number of industries and various levels of leadership. It is highly satisfying and inspiring work. I thrive when I see my clients unlock their potential and succeed.

DIANA GÁLER, Ph.D., PCC

DIANA GÁLER, Ph.D., PCC

Founder

Dr. Diana Gáler works with high achieving professionals from many industries, who are unwilling to settle for the status quo in their careers and in life. They are ready and willing to work hard to make the change they desire. Her clients have followed tried-and-true career paths and have a record of accomplishment. And yet, they may find themselves facing new challenges for which they feel unprepared – whether as a consequence of increased or new responsibilities, or from circumstances they consider beyond their control. They may feel exhilarated by these challenges, or lost and without a map.

With Diana’s support and guidance, her clients are able to overcome these challenges, and gain the confidence, skills and determination to be recognized and valued for who they are and what they can contribute. Perhaps even more importantly, as they grow in confidence, they allow themselves to “dream big” about their lives and careers.

Diana has held diverse leadership positions in Pharmaceutical Research and Development, including in the scientific disciplines and in strategic management and operations. She has worked with senior executives and high potential directors from the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, financial services, insurance, medical device and technology fields.

Diana has a Ph.D. in biochemistry and studied coaching at the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. She has been certified as a Professional Certified Coach by the International Coaching Federation and takes pride in continuing her education in the fields of coaching and other allied subjects.

A native of Argentina, Diana is well aware of the role that culture can play in relationships and the workplace. She is available to coach in English as well as her native Spanish.
