What people are saying

"I had the pleasure of working with Dina, who was my executive coach for 6 months as part of a corporate leadership development program. Dina was highly knowledgeable, experienced, and wise in the ways of big business and career journeys.


Her fresh thinking and sense of humor are what sets her apart, and I highly recommend Dina for anyone that is looking to improve their leadership profile."

"Working with Dina was critical in enabling me to successfully lead my organization through a massive strategic change. I became very clear on my values, strengths, as well as areas that needed attention and how to address them.


Her insight, candor and support accelerated my development both as a leader and person, and our conversations always left me feeling energized, focused and with fresh perspective on key issues."

"Dina is an excellent executive coach. Her commitment to her clients and her warm, engaging style are supported by a deep knowledge of neuroscience as applied to leadership. I've had the opportunity to refer many people to her for coaching, to watch her coaching in action and even to be coached by her myself. Her intelligence, her access to powerful questions and her personal commitment to growth make her a truly exceptional strategic partner and coach. The people I've referred to her have consistently given her rave reviews too. If you get a chance to work with Dina - take it!"
