CHAOS to CALM
These are uncertain and challenging times we’re living in. With the transitions we are all facing in this “new normal” we can find our ourselves living with a lot of fear, uncertainty, and chaos, trying to do more, better, faster.
Whatever place you are in right now–unemployed, under-employed, struggling in a relationship or with your weight, now is the perfect time to go from chaos to calm.
Discover the secret of living a more powerful and purposeful life by learning how to open to grace. This program gives you the perspective from an ER Nurse turned yogi and supports you in setting an intention and how to focus on it–with remarkable results including weight loss, relationship healing, and increased sales. Learn not only how to do the practice, but the empowering results you can achieve by doing it.
This program is based on the recently released CD, 30 Days to Grace; A Daily Practice to Achieve Your Ultimate Goals and the book, The Chaos Cure to be released in late 2010.

Reclaiming the Spirit of Nursing
Do you remember when you first decided to become a nurse? For most, the decision was a defining moment—not only for you, but for every hand you have held, every brow you have wiped and every tear you have shared with patients and their families since. But short staffing, increased acuities and complexities of care provide daunting challenges for nurses everywhere. And sometimes we lose our spirit in it all.
Let Diane challenge and inspire you to reclaim your passion and pride for nursing by finding your voice so that you can continue to inspire your staff, your peers and most importantly, yourself!
She uses personal stories, practical strategies, and interactive exercises to show nurses how to stand up, show up, and speak up both in their personal and professional lives.
7 Habits of Highly Resilient Nurses (Healthcare Providers)
Up to 80% of healthcare providers today report signs and symptoms of burnout, suffering from physical, emotional, or mental exhaustion, undermining motivation and leaving a sense of hopelessness. While stress is characterized by over-engagement, burnout is characterized by disengagement.
The challenges in healthcare today require an intervention and resilience is the intervention. Resilience is not a one-time event, it is our thoughts, feelings, and attitude and determines how we show up every day. It is a skill that can be learned.
Learn the 7 habits of highly resilient nurses that include engagement, extreme self-care, moral courage, and mindfulness and how to implement them immediately into your work and your life in this highly interactive program.
Anatomy of a Highly Functioning Team
Today, the power of a healthy and highly effective team is more important than ever. True teamwork contributes to the bottom line and creates not only job fulfillment, but also goal fulfillment.
If your organization is struggling to accomplish its goals, trying to work through a transition due to change of ownership, new direction, or downsizing, Diane can help you create and sustain your ideal team.
Specializing in healthcare organizations, Diane facilitates staff, leaders and board members in finding their voice—both individually and as a team—to move through tough transitions using assessments, focus groups, conflict management skills, and thematic goal setting.
Finding your voice in your organization means finding your power, purpose, and presence in your work every single day, and requires the group support of a highly functional team.
Building a successful team is not complicated, but it does take discipline and focus, and Diane’s facilitation can provide the necessary structure and direction by showing you how to:
• Communicate more effectively and efficiently
• Learn the importance of trust in a team
• Master conflict management skills
• Understand the importance of accountability
• Practice the power of full engagement and full commitment
• Identify thematic goals
• Prioritize the team
Teamwork remains the one sustainable competitive advantage that has been largely untapped”

The Depression Cure
Diane helped initiate a ground breaking program at the Wellness Treatment Center, an Intensive Outpatient program in Denver, Colorado.
The Center provides a comprehensive treatment system for individuals with behavioral health conditions using the TLC program, (Therapeutic Lifestyle Change) which incorporates six lifestyle choices of nutrition, exercise, sleep habits, social interaction, meaningful activity and light therapy. Remarkable results have been achieved when these lifestyle choices are practiced on a consistent, and specific basis.
We all know these healthy lifestyle choices will “help” mental illness, but the cumulative effect of practicing these choices are amazingly empowering as people take control of their lives and avoiding additional medications and more aggressive treatment options.
The statistics from Steve Ilardi’s latest book, The Depression Cure, (which the program was initially based) are impressive, but learn how Diane has personally witnessed the success of both her clients and herself with the use of this program, and how the TLC program can benefit anyone, clinically depressed or not.
