Hello. I am Dr. Diane Hamilton. Thank you for visiting my blog.
Through my speaking, teaching, and writing, I help professionals to improve their lifetime potential. From working several decades in multiple industries, I have garnered the knowledge to help others learn from my victories. I do not believe in defeat; rather, “mistakes” provide more opportunity to learn for the next adventure. I have a Ph.D. in Business Management. My books include some of the most sought-after content taught in leadership programs including soft skills, personality assessment, and emotional intelligence. One of my books was required reading at a local university. I have worked as an Editor in Chief, my writing is featured on websites like Investopedia, and many of my studies published in peer-reviewed journals.
