‘Diane played a critical role as I went through the transition from Director to executive and from a team of 100 to a team of 800. She has been my trusted advisor, an impartial sounding board, providing broad perspectives and counter points as I worked through challenges. I deeply appreciate her support, coaching and ongoing mentorship as she has been a key contributor to my growth and success as a leader. I have worked with her since 2007 in UK, Canada, Japan and Australia and she has coached a number of my reports to successfully achieve significant changes in their leadership styles and behaviours.'
Senior Vice President, Customer Success, Global Commercial Business at Salesforce.com
Quote from a computer company CFO Global Accounts, after the first six months of his VP line manager's coaching programme:
Diane, what have you done with him?
I wouldn't have believed such changes were possible in such a short time. It is evident that this coaching programme has been a good investment from the financial point of view. Please keep doing whatever you are doing!

Track record coaching senior international executives to achieve their career potential
I am a Master Coach with a 16-year track record supporting executives from over 30 countries in major corporate companies, to make transformational changes to the way they behave and operate as leaders. I combine a powerful, stakeholder centred approach, proven with executives worldwide, with Master Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) skills and experience. so changes are sustained long after the coaching programmes have been completed.

I established Beyond Performance Limited in 2002, after a career in commercial management and consultancy with ICI, AstraZeneca, Deloitte, Sainsbury’s Supermarkets and The Balanced Scorecard Collaborative. I understand the pressures senior executives face in multinational companies, having had similar challenges in my own experience.
I coach leaders to achieve progress against both their personal development and business goals. Results often far exceed beyond performance expectations.
Passion for excellence. Supportive but challenging style
I have strong personal values: trust, integrity and a passion for excellence. I am always striving to develop my coaching capabilities. I have a supportive style and I bring warmth and humour to my sessions to make the coaching experience enjoyable, as well as practical and productive. I also know how to deliver tough challenge when required!
London base. Global network
