How I Can Help Your Organization

At Elephant Conversations, we offer a full complement of services to companies and individuals looking to increase their overall communication and leadership effectiveness. 

Executive Coaching

The leaders of today face a multitude of challenges. Diane partners with senior leaders and executives who want to explore new approaches to thinking and problem solving, improving existing areas of strength, and building their leadership brand.

 Leadership Development

In her signature leadership development program, Diane will help your team build the attributes required to become a high performing leader while maximizing your organization’s investment in professional development. Participants learn to improve their communication, get more comfortable with giving and receiving feedback, set strategic goals, and most importantly, learn how to build their professional presence and be seen as a dynamic leader.

Effective communication is one of the biggest keys to success, and Diane brings her expertise and no-nonsense approach to every audience she meets. Whether she’s working with high-level executives or entry-level staff, Diane can create a customized keynote address for your event that hits on everything you need and leaves participants feeling energized and inspired.

Diane spoke at our annual dinner for the BC Paralegal Association with 160 members in attendance. She was extremely energetic, enthusiastic, funny, engaging, informative, and very interesting. Overall, we were thrilled to have Diane present for our group — enough that we have invited her back and look forward to having her at future events.

Can three hours change your life? It did for me, and my work is more satisfying because of those three hours. In fact, it was the best workshop I have ever attended, and I would highly recommend Diane’s workshop and her coaching. Simple, effective solutions that can have an immediate impact…it doesn’t get much better than that!
