the International Results Coach
‘Expanding my consciousness and learning that practical resources that bring real results, I know what works with what, and what doesn’t. I learnt how to overcome and transform what has happened to me, into an amazing power and priceless wisdom. I didn’t become just another survivor, I become a Thriver!’
Diana Metello, the International Results Coach, lives in Portugal but shares her life between Lisbon and London. An Internationally Certified Master Life & Executive Coach, NLP Master and a Social Mental Panorama Consultant, Diana is regarded as a Change Catalyst. But her thirst for knowledge didn’t stop once she received the licence for qualified training and certifications in personal branding & marketing, public speaking, Jungian psychology and healing therapies amongst many others. ‘I’ll be Thirsty of Knowledge until the last day of my Life… and beyond! ‘ Diana says.
From a very young age, Diana understood that she had to work to get what she wants. Diana was only six when she first earned her “pocket money’ and learnt the “value of things”, because her parents encouraged her natural creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.
Before leaving school, Diana started her first real job when she was 16, and since then accumulated a wealth of extraordinary experience and mastered her commitment to ‘Real Life’ taking responsibility for her financial freedom. With a Master’s Degree in Graphic Design, Diana dedicated her time and energy as a Creative Director in Advertising & Media Companies, in the Publishing industry, and the Events & PR sector. In 2000, Diana founded her first business in design, PR and Event Planning industry.
A philanthropist at heart Diana invested a lot of her time and knowledge to make a significant difference and recently her dream came true, when she launched Woman that Inspire, ‘An empowering environment for women, where meaningful relationships can flourish through collaboration and mutual contribution, providing opportunities for high achievers, elevating the standards of networking, based on our main core values: Contribution- Empowerment-Meritocracy- Leadership- Ethics’ Diana says.
‘On reflection, I became the Person I needed then and couldn’t find to help me understand and welcome those tough moments in my life, so I learned how tremendously resourceful human beings are, naturally. Life has definitely shown me, that I can be a beacon of hope, a living example and inspiration for so many that find themselves alienated, feel blocked, frustrated and hopeless. I can help them, not just because I’ve read it in a book, or done a thousand trainings on that topic, but because I know how it feels to be there. I had the fortune to deeply understand human vulnerability, first hand, and the abundance of inner resources we can access to change a challenge into a real opportunity!’ Diana says.
While surpassing numerous challenges, Diana acquired a deep understanding of human strength from her own experiences. ‘I believe in the extraordinary potential locked in each individual, in each Human Being. Her no non-sense attitude helped her developed an authentic range of techniques and therapies. ‘Expanding my consciousness and learning that practical resources bring real results, I know what works with what, and what doesn’t. I learnt how to overcome and transform what has happened to me, into an amazing power and priceless wisdom. I didn’t become just another survivor, I become a Thriver!’ Diana says.
A woman on a mission, Diana advocates for excellence and continuous improvement and she is aware that it is her moral duty to be visible. Leading by example and with an enormous passion for what she does, investing in herself and others, creating the opportunity to excel in her endeavours, Diana never stopped her education and she is learning from the best to transform each challenge into a personal or professional victory. She says:
‘Being worthy of others trust is the mantra of professionals across industries. Taking responsibility for your unique talent and being visible is as important as your integrity. The market place is overwhelmed by a constant overflow of information, an aggressive wave of marketing for “advertised services” and it is hard for anyone to find the “real deal”. Giving your clients the chance to hire you, making yourself visible, coming from a place of integrity, responsibility and high ethical standards, is a prime duty- you own it equally to yourself, and to your clients.’
In total alignment with her values, believes and actions, Diana was the Official Representative and All Cities Leader of “First Tuesday” (Worldwide Network for Entrepreneurs and Investors) in Portugal, and in 2001 she was acknowledged by GEM (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor) as one of the Top Entrepreneurship References in Portugal.
‘Acquiring a vast realm of working experiences, I founded my first business in the design, PR and event planning industry in 2000, then discovered my passion and unique vocation so mastering my professional skills, I become an International Results Coach in 2006, and few years later, in 2012, my current business “Action For Success”, was born!’
Action For Success was created to deliver bespoke solutions for established leaders, entrepreneurs and Business Executives, ‘extraordinary who want to connect with their personal power, influence, make the change and really get results’ Diana says. ‘ I’m committed to transform each challenge into a personal or professional victory. Through Strategic Intervention Sessions I create a valuable confidential space to work with my clients and help them discover a higher Self- consciousness, their true potential. Once they learn how to activate their own resources, they find it natural to lead others, and get access to greater insights into what they really want to achieve. I take my clients through a profound Transformational Experience, I become their Support & Accountability Partner and help them turn their own vision into a better reality.’
