Diane Allen has been an excellent executive coach and resource to me personally and in my leadership of the YMCA of Burlington and Camden Counties, in New Jersey. Not only did she help me tremendously as my professional coach, but since working with her I have had our senior team and other members of our organization utilize her leadership development consulting and coaching. Her work with my staff leaders has helped us to catapult our Marketing, increase our community reach, and bolster our revenue. Her leadership programs through the Strategic Leadership Academy can help any organization achieve peak performance.

Diane Allen developed and facilitated a valuable Leadership Program for our senior team. They learned how to cultivate and apply their strategic thinking, put a focus on solving issues differently, and acquired very effective techniques to manage performance. She added great value as follow up to the program with her weekly leadership tips. These tips were aligned to our leadership competencies and reinforced many of the tools and techniques that our leaders learned in her program. The Strategic Leadership Academy programs are far more than motivational workshops. They are inspiring and insightful learning experiences for personal and professional leadership development.

Over the last seven years I've had the opportunity to work on many initiatives with Diane Allen, Managing Principal of the Strategic Leadership Academy. She developed leaders so they were able to focus on their real strengths and contributions. Her Human Resources expertise provided much needed process improvements. Through the Strategic Leadership Academy I am now able to provide our leadership team with the strategic thinking, emotional intelligence, and team building skills to optimize our performance and prepare for the next level of growth. We are a busy organization and rely on development that is practical, yet powerful. You will find that the Strategic Leadership Academy delivers on that promise and more.

When running an organization especially in the heat of the fires, it is easy to lose sight of what is important and what really drives organizational performance. I personally learned the importance of being well balanced, keeping a cool head, and practicing empathy through my work with Diane Allen from The Strategic Leadership Academy. These tenets became my guiding philosophy which I instill in my team. Through her coaching and leadership development work, I've come to realize the value of being challenged in a way that I can listen, using a pause to assure I make good decisions, and balancing patience and urgency to win in the long run. There is no other leadership investment that I have found to be as valuable. Her work with the Strategic Leadership Academy is spot on and worth the time, money and effort.

As the CEO of a healthcare organization we often have to balance many priorities that have a lasting impact on quality of life of others. To do this well, we need to have a leadership team that is responsive, caring, and at the same time business savvy. Diane Allen from the Strategic Leadership Academy has enabled varied members of our leadership team to cultivate those leadership competencies through her executive coaching and leadership development work. Her focus is on finding the formula that aligns seemingly competing goals into a package that enables our leaders to do great work, provide the best care to our community, and, position ourselves for a rapidly changing future.

Diane Allen, from the Strategic Leadership Academy has been a frequent speaker at our annual conferences. Each time she speaks, her sessions are very well attended and her topics are timely and well received. Her approachable, enthusiastic and interactive style keeps our members wanting more. Not only is she motivational, but her real value is in the content she shares. Our members come away with tangible techniques and insights to help them develop as true professionals.

I have been using Diane Allen from the Strategic Leadership Academy for many years. While working as a Practice Manager for a very busy Family Practice I have often relied on Diane for guidance and coaching on many issues related to leading the Practice. She is very responsive and explains situations in a common sense manner. Her workshops for our in-service programs are well attended and staff have given her high praise. I highly encourage anyone with a leadership need to reach out to her.

Diane Allen was a terrific consultant to me as the Director of a regional office for a federal agency and she was awesome as a Leadership Coach to two senior managers. We needed someone outside of the agency who had the expertise to help them assess their strengths and development needs. Diane listened, quickly assessed their situation, and they were able to reposition themselves as valuable contributors. Diane also facilitated several strategic retreats inclusive of business planning, strategy development, and team building. We had great results and will call on the Strategic Leadership Academy for our future needs.
