Intentional Action – whether you are an individual or an organization, the process to focus on what matters is the same.
- Clarity (what do you really want in your life)
- Intuition (the ability to get quiet and trust that voice within)
- Priority (not just being busy, but being productive means setting your priorities)
- Truth (speaking up in your life and your career; having difficult conversations; setting boundaries)
One-on-One Coaching is the most powerful way to make lasting change in your life. My clients are usually successful, smart and doing well. But they want to be doing great and they feel that something is missing. They need support to figure out why they go home exhausted at the end of the day still feeling like they let someone down. That what they did was just not good enough. Through one-on-one phone sessions, they get clarity about what matters most, set intentions for their life, prioritize what matters, and then speak up authentically in their life/work.
How do we get started?
It is easy. We schedule a complimentary strategy session. We will get to know each other. I will share how coaching works. You will share what you think you would like to work on with me. And, we see if we are a good fit and then decide the best way to move forward.
Set up a 30-minute complimentary Strategy Session for Coaching with Darienne now!
WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP ROUNDTABLE
Most of us live busy lives with many demands personally and professionally, but I believe that we want to find balance, peace, and acceptance. We have a sense that no matter how hard we work; we never get it all done.
You may have all the things you wanted -- a fulfilling job, a loving family and home -- and yet still feel that something’s missing.
The Women’s Leadership Roundtable is a six-month leadership professional and personal development supported group coaching program that will be transformative.
DOING WHAT MATTERS VIRTUAL COURSE
This online course is designed to help women create a vision for their best life providing them powerful tools to trust their intuition, prioritize their day, and speak their truth so they can experience clarity, balance, and peace. This course has four modules that will give you focus, clarity and the process for Doing What Matters.
- Do you spend more time thinking about lunch than about your future?
- Do you feel overwhelmed and out of balance and not sure what you want?
- Are you stuck but have experienced being a successful, accomplished woman?
- Do you put your staff, family, and friends before yourself?
In my experience working with Darienne, I have restructured many aspects of my organization to help facilitate our growth and sustainability. The coaching sessions gave me the tools and, frankly, the boldness to ask for the things that I thought would move us in a better direction and make me more content in my position. Personally, I have become much more intentional about my time. I am now much more careful about overloading my schedule in ways that might prevent me from engaging in self-care.
I’ve gained much more confidence and boldness to ask for what I want. I’ve also learned to trust myself more.
I appreciated her candor more than anything. She called me out … delicately … when I needed it and encouraged and cheered me on, too. I also appreciated her suggestion of exercises and affirmations to help put me on a more positive course. She came into my life at just the right time. I would definitely call her again if I find myself feeling like I did in the beginning of our relationship.
KEYNOTES and WORKSHOPS
LEADING FROM THE INSIDE OUT
A signature program
All of us want to be considered effective leaders. We have read the books and attended workshops, but are we the best we can be? Darienne’s life experience has taught her that leadership starts from the inside out. She believes you can’t lead others effectively until you have done the personal development work first.
LIVING FROM THE INSIDE OUT
Have you been feeling stuck? Do you find yourself rushing around, and not sure if all of the effort is worth it? Have you gotten so busy that you’re not sure what makes sense anymore?
If you’re having any of those feelings, rest assured. You are not alone. Most of us are seeking that delicate work-life balance. All of us want to know that what we do matters in the world.
Together, in this session, we will explore finding more peace of mind in your life. I’ll walk through the steps to cultivate a balanced lifestyle by sharing my strategies for happiness.
GETTING IT ALL DONE WITH GRACE AND EASE
Without awareness of new, smarter time management practices, many people will find themselves in a perpetual state of overload, chaos, clutter, and stress. Learn how to overcome the clutter with smarter to-do lists, better schedules, and tricks to make Outlook more effective for you. In this session, participants will learn how to organize their time, mind, spaces and information.
THE CLARITY PIECE
Darienne will lead the participants through exercises and group work to create a vision for your life. Each of us has a default future or a desired future. She believes that most of us don’t spend much time envisioning our future, we just do the next thing on the list. How much easier our lives would be if we knew we were moving in the direction of the vision we created. Darienne will share her personal journey and what having a vision has done for her. The participants will look at all aspects of their lives and work. This is a powerful session.
SMARTER PRIORITIES MATTER
We are all busy, but are we effective? We know how to keep our heads down and do the next thing on the list. But are we doing the important things? Darienne will share her proven methods for managing your life and your time with grace and ease. Setting the priority for the month, the week and the day will make sure you get the important things done and feel a sense of balance and calmness in your life.
GET ORGANIZED WITH OUTLOOK
You have been issued Microsoft Outlook because it has so many great features for helping you manage your information, communications, schedules, and workload. Have you ever had any official training on how to use it? Without training, most users will plateau out on their own. Wouldn't it be better to learn how to use it effectively?
COMMUNICATING WITH HEART AND HEAD
Do you feel misunderstood? Do you tell your staff what you want them to do, but they don’t seem to get it done, but won’t ask questions? Do you listen to a conversation and walk away not sure what the topic was? If any of this is true for you, this session is for you. Darienne will teach you how to communicate effectively and speak your truth in the process. Learn how to really listen effectively. Learn the power of curiosity. This program will give you the chance to improve all of your relationships at work and at home.

STAFF TRAINING and DEVELOPMENT
STAFF & BOARD STRATEGIC PLANNING
Build consensus around a vision and goals that everyone buys into. People don’t believe in a plan that is handed down. They participate wholeheartedly to a plan that they help create. Let Darienne spend a day with your team to create a vision, mission and priorities for moving your organization forward.
GETTING IT ALL DONE WITH GRACE AND EASE
Getting It All Done with Grace is a program that combines personality assessments with productivity skills that create an efficient, productive team. The greatest asset of your organization is your staff and yet most don’t make the investment and then wonder why they are not as profitable as they could be.

Darienne’s talk was the highest-rated presentation of our Governor’s Conference. She is witty, inspirational and perhaps most importantly, she is authentic. Her story comes straight from the heart, and it spoke to our attendees in a way few others can. We would have her back in a heartbeat!
