Experience and Testimonials

As a Speaker

I am a strong believer that by sharing our stories and experiences we can start conversations that really matter and learn and inspire one another to achieve greater things, may that be a more fulfilled life, healthier mental health, or even better relationships. Inspiring, Relatable, and Wholehearted is what I always aim for as a speaker. Here are some examples of my contributions in different subjects like anxiety, starting over with no fear, leadership, and my life as a migrant in Germany and my story of abuse:

Group Coaching

Group Coaching is an excellent way to engage and educate a small group by providing the right tools and a safe space to share. In a business environment or volunteering in an organization in Africa, my experience with groups showed how rewarding it is to exchange knowledge and come to breakthroughs together. Group workshops are a great way to work on culture and build different perspectives but ultimately, they have the power to almost immediately increase the sense of connection, belonging, and community and are therefore very motivating and engaging. Here are 2 examples of my group coaching experience, talking about Non-Violent Communication in a female empowerment organization in Ethiopia, and in a series of group coaching sessions for business/ team building.

As a Coach

One-to-one Coaching sessions allow us to explore the issues in depth and really customize and adapt the path of the sessions to one’s particular needs. Since the beginning of my certification process in 2022, I had the honor to coach different people on different subjects leading my coachees to the path they desired. Below are some testimonials on a few different subjects.

What people are saying

Her horror story was my survival guide. Wasn’t until I learned about her abusive relationship that I realized I was in one too. With her support, I stood for myself and got my life back.”

— Giulia, Project Manager

Other Testimonials

I have known Diana when she came to Ethiopia to volunteer in non-profit organisations. Diana was humble to step-in to our admin work when we were overwhelmed with exam preparation and typing tasks for our high school girls. Diana was involved in our life skills program and coached essential skills. She taught our clients about non-violent communication skills and led open discussion on topics related to communicating needs and speaking love languages which our clients benefited from it. In general, I was truly touched by Diana’s kindness to volunteer in our organisation. Her stay benefited and inspired both our clients and the staff.

Rahel Yimam, Project Manager at Pink Girls Foundation, Ethiopia

I really appreciated and enjoyed the easy going approach and great conversations I have with Diana. I have found in Diana my very own personal coach. She has guided me through some difficult times, with compassion, empathy and understanding. She has the ability to build confidence where needed, to reaffirm beliefs and values. I highly trust in her experience and knowledge, and appreciate her as a skilled professional in being part of my journey of a personal development. I Will always be grateful for her help and guidance!

Gülsah Wilcke, CEO and Founder of femBona Female Health

Diana with her multitalented skills have been surprising us every Wednesday with her new HR and personal development presentations, so called “Happy Wednesday”. Although this was not part of her Job description, she was always very enthusiastic and creative. Once we all enjoyed and learnt from her speech about Non-Violent Commnication. Afterwards I purchased a symbolic Giraffe to each of us remember the giraffe language. I wish her all the success on her new challenge.

Salih Gündüz, Managing Director and Founder of XVET GmbH

My passion and work in self-development started years in 2015 when I first joined a Transformational Coaching seminar that completely changed my life. Since then I’ve been always active and engaged in this never-ending journey of self-work. In the process, I’ve enrolled others in pursuing a better version of themselves by sharing my knowledge, breakdowns, and breakthroughs. By starting and actively engaging in real, radically honest conversations I carried my mission to help others feel less alone and more fulfilled to all areas of my life: at work, where I created short coaching sessions with my management and teammates, in my personal life through my friends and family, through volunteering or speaking at events. I started my Coaching certification in 2020 and successfully completed it in 2021, the same year I founded with my partner our business called self-loveshop.com also dedicated to helping others in their personal growth. These experiences allowed me to Coach people in the most different areas and subjects. Below you can see some examples of my experience in different fields and what others have to say about the impact I have caused in their lives.
