When working with Darlene Dean, you will find a confidential, “no-judgment” environment, a space in which you can safely explore new ideas, new ways to think, to grow and to learn. Darlene’s decades of experience, in the computer technology industry, in project management, in leading teams, and in business ownership, provide the backdrop as she guides you to focus on what’s important, whether in your career/business or in your personal life.
Darlene’s vitality and sense of fun will brighten your day and encourage you to stretch yourself beyond what you think is possible.
Growing up in a military environment, and moving around frequently, Darlene faced constant change during her young life. As a result, she is culturally diverse and thrives on change to this day. Throughout her many years of success in the computer industry, the one common thread in every career move: she either led, or was a part of a start-up, “we’ve never done this before,” team. Helping others adapt to change continues to shape her approach to guiding and coaching her clients.
“I love meeting new people, learning new things.
It is always fun to brainstorm with my clients,
to find creative ways to bring about new results.”
Darlene’s circuitous career path began in real estate sales at the young age of eighteen. Seven years later and brokering in two states, she discovered the new computer industry and envisioned how it would change the world. She eventually migrated to the computer industry; and over the next 30+ years, she worked in computer programming and network design. This lengthy journey gave her a well-rounded skillset that prepared her well for management and senior leadership roles in a traditionally male environment. She has been an entrepreneur for many years, which also included owning a computer consulting and training business for 10 years.
Have you ever wondered why you are here on this Earth, at this particular time?
Like so many others, I too, had that question about my own life.
Once I discovered the powerful effects of coaching,
I understood that all the steps I had taken in my past were purposeful;
and it all began to make perfect sense.
In 2006, I became certified as a Success Coach, so that I could serve as a guide for others.
Darlene continues to draw upon her extensive team-building and management experience when working with her coaching clients. She helps them create a level of excellence that is sustainable across all areas of life – home, career, relationships, health and personal development.
