Speaker Biographies
Diana Snider is an executive Coach with more than 25 years of management and leadership experience. She connects with people who have a desire for improving performance and bringing more meaning to both their personal and professional lives. She has coached business leaders and executives from mid-sized to Fortune 100 companies, spanning all major industries in the US and abroad.
 She excels at helping executives and teams achieve results by identifying root-cause setbacks and creating targeted development plans. Diana draws from her experience as a Divisional Vice President with P&L accountability for a national workforce management firm. She is skilled in business management, strategic planning, team development, leadership training and business acumen skills.
Diana believes in getting to know her subject and often pulls her clients into uncharted territories. Her powerful intuition blended with her ability to shift perspective allows others to successfully craft and bring their ideas to light. She follows a coaching approach that begins with establishing a foundation for each client in clarifying personal and professional values as well as creating a long-term vision. She combines this insight with her client’s natural talents and learned skills to create a purpose/mission statement which they can use as a filter for their decision making.
Each coaching engagement with Diana is fully customized to match the goals and objectives of the individual and his or her organization. Diana’s style can be described as warm yet focused as well as “asking the tough questions” and holding one accountable for doing the active work.
