“Diana Shay is empathetic and insightful in her coaching. She is truly present when she is interacting with people and has a calm but strong presence allowing vulnerability and trust to be cultivated. She is genuine, wise, and caring and has a heart for helping people in their growth process.

“Diana Shay is a gifted Townsend leadership Program Director who is deeply concerned about people’s growth. What sets Diana apart from many is her continued desire for more personal growth, herself. Diana was a member of a TLP team for four years prior to becoming a TLP Director and she lives the thought that you cannot take people any farther than you have come yourself. I am blessed to have witnessed Diana’s transformation from participant to leader in this world and I count it an honor to co-lead a team with her this year. For those looking for someone who can draw out your ‘deeper waters,’ look to Diana Shay to get you to the next level in your personal growth!” ~ Jeff Carroll
“Diana is a highly qualified TLP Director. She is well-trained and has years of experience facilitating process groups. As members of the same TLP group for four years, I watched Diana commit to her own growth and work hard to achieve it. She understands the growth process because she lives it out in her own life. I know her to be a compassionate person who pays attention and remembers the important things going on in the lives of others. She is insightful and full of grace. I highly recommend her as your TLP Director.” ~ Jim Haw
