coaching and advising Individuals and teams for results THAT LAST


I coach and advise both Individuals and Teams.

I help individuals develop a higher quality of self-awareness and their leadership skills, so as to enable courses of action in which the truth of one's individual purpose and the power of one's true gifts can clearly 'show up'.

When working with teams in organizations, I look for the patterns in the organizational culture, systems or structures that are getting in the way, help teams see what they can do collectively about psychological safety and commitment to results, and then support them as they get on with creating the environment and results that matter most to them.

April 18-21, 2018 - A "Roman Holiday" CIYO 5-days/4-nights treat for CIYO Alumnae & Friends

Treat yourself to a Roman springtime getaway! Join Dorian and the Italian CIYO Faculty: Myriam Ines Giangiacomo, Maria Schiavo, Silvia Gollini, Daniela Mattia and Pernette Masson, in Rome for an English-language CIYO holiday. 

Together we will focus on the Feminine in Rome's Art, Architecture, Rituals, Food, History, Fashion, Politics and Progress. Join with other CIYO alumnae and friends for a taste of Romans' love of a life lived fully. 

We are planning a number of optional activities to choose from during our stay, including an empathy walk along the Via Appia Antica also known as Rome's Queen of Roads, a visit to the Villa Borghese to learn more about the life and power of Paolina Borghese, stopping for tea in the Chiostro del Bramante museum cafe behind Piazza Navona, a guided session on the work of Artemisia Gentileschi, a Roman cooking class. And lots of gentle meandering and learning and playing together.

During our trip we will base ourselves at one of Rome's quieter boutique hotels, the Profumo Maison D'Hotes which is in a perfect pocket neighborhood next to the Colosseum.

If interested in this nurturing learning and travel adventure, email Dorian  to express your interest of being included on the mailing list for further updates, hotel room deposit process and other information.
