Who it is for

It’s for anyone at work who wants to gain insights and mastery into creating workplaces where our attitudes, values, beliefs, and behaviors about what’s possible at work change along with our relationships, and  the tools for how we get work done.  

The possibility exists for our change initiatives to produce not just changes in operating practices, but also greater ease and joy as we include more  holistic, humanistic considerations in their development. 

What is the potential that can be unleashed when bosses become mentors; delegation of responsibilities includes the decision-making authority needed to fulfill on those responsibilities; communications occur in psychologically safe environments where people are supported and encouraged to be honest and authentic, regardless of the hierarchical structures;  trust levels among all workplace participants enhance autonomy for everyone, significantly reducing the need for micromanaging;  job descriptions define concisely in one page the purpose, key responsibilities, key competencies, and key deliverables, leaving the “how” one fulfills on the responsibilities up to the person who’s been hired to do it; performance reviews consist of bi-weekly “How’s It Going” conversations to celebrate the ongoing successes and accomplishments, while solving any problems that may be getting in the way of future accomplishments; and instead of fixing what’s wrong, the focus is on creating what’s next, with all outcomes looked at as learning experiences vs. mistakes.

Self-Expression
Work is experienced as an opportunity to express our value vs. prove our worth.

As a Human Resources Futurist, Workplace Architect and Workplace Paradigm Shifter, with 30+ years of multi-faceted experiences in a diverse variety of enterprises, ranging from small, family-owned businesses, start-ups, political campaigns, and government agencies to international public relations firms and Fortune 500 companies, Dianne offers a pragmatic but innovative approach to guiding others to unleash their potential and experience the power of possibility, steeped in the strength of partnerships of mutual trust and respect, and the freedom and support for being seen and heard in relationships of psychological safety. Her breakthrough concepts and tools awaken others to the possibility of embracing work as a gift of participation, contribution, and self-expression vs. a burden to survive or a duty to perform, counting the days to retirement.

Dianne combines a passion for people unleashing their potential at work, with an in-depth understanding of Human Resources,  organizational dynamics, operations infrastructures, and human behavior. She is thrilled and inspired by the possibility of partnering with organizations and individuals who share that passion and belief in the possibilities for creating the conditions and relationships at work that can unleash everyone’s potential. 

Dianne’s purpose can best be defined as being committed to all people experiencing success at work, with success defined as, “Doing work you love, with people you love, for the reasons you love.”

She believes that possibility needs to be extended to all human beings, not just artists, musicians, actors, and a few lucky people! Dianne feels fortunate to have such a strong sense of purpose and enthusiastically invites everyone for whom this purpose resonates to join her in becoming Possibility Partners working together in the spirit of Goethe’s famous quote, “Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
