Action Steps & Support

Shatter Your Glass Ceiling


Are you struggling with Glass Ceiling issues like lack of recognition, advancement, or pay?

Would you like to gain support, speak with impact, and take action steps to end your frustrations?

I know how hard it can be to know your value and expertise and not have it recognized by others. It can feel as if you are invisible, unappreciated or labeled wrongly. I also know how hard it can be to watch yourself balk or underperform. There you are, perfectly or overly qualified, and when you are with important people or at important events you get a bit awkward with your thinking or words or maybe even nerves take over. Because of this your anxiety rises beforehand and afterwards you replay the scenarios over and over again in your head.

I too felt incredibly frustrated watching myself grossly misrepresent my expertise during job interviews. In my case my nerves derailed me and I became labeled low on the ladder by co-workers. This didn’t happen just once… But my belief in myself was stronger than my obstacles. Once I found a way to flourish under pressure and gracefully display my expertise, I enjoyed a long and rewarding career with full recognition. On top of that, I used the exact same skill set to change people’s perceptions of me again when I changed careers.

I don’t want you to feel stuck, frustrated or like a victim of circumstances. Not only did I find a system that worked for me, but I have been sharing that system with women in middle and upper management to stand in their power, drastically reduce or eliminate their nerves, and enjoy genuine praise from people that really matter.

That’s why I created the Shatter Your Glass Ceiling Project.


After working with Diane my nerves went away pitching to bankers and investors. As a result my conversion rates increased and I advanced to a leadership role 1 year ahead of schedule.

People finally stopped calling me “Crazy” and respected my big picture viewpoint! Before Diane, I had no idea what to do about being labeled.

S. D. Manager

I used to be accused of derailing meetings. I found out why and now know how to help people see the possibilities that I see without people thinking I’m “derailing”.

If you are looking to increase your impact, develop unshakable confidence, and gain skills to not only stand in your power but feel comfortable as you do it,

this may be for you.


Here’s how it works:

Because you have so much to offer, and I am passionate about making sure a woman’s expertise is being fully recognized and valued, I am offering these high quality conference calls free of cost.

Twice a month I facilitate conference calls that feature Action Steps or a Circle. The Action Step calls deep dive into specific strategies to boost your visibility in a positive light. In the Circles, we discuss a topic and women have the opportunity to share victories, challenges and ask for specific advice. We also talk about Mentorship, one of the proven keys for highly successful women.
