Diane Yates

Diane Yates Consultant and Coach

I am a consultant, coach and facilitator with 30+ years’ experience specialising in leadership and leader development. I have had the privilege of working at Director level for eminent brands such as RBS, National Australia Group, Audi, Deloitte, and KPMG, where I led the Talent Development and Learning functions. My early career saw me follow in paternal footsteps, join the British military, and led soldiers undertaking various military combat engineering projects around the world.  I resigned my commission to start a family and pursue a second career.

I set up my own business in 2023 to focus on leadership development, performance consulting and behavioural change and believe that my unique experience allows me to enable others using a ‘knowing, doing and being’ approach to deliver outstanding individual and team results. I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and hypnotherapist and believe this understanding of the human psyche supports the work I do in the development of leaders.

I enjoy yoga which keeps me calm and centred, and cruising along the British waterways in my narrow boat, Blue Moon, which keeps me physically fit.  My family still take pride of place, I have a ‘family first’ mantra and am now a grandmother – which is just wonderful – and scary at the same time!
