About Inspired Leap: Overview

Inspired Leap was founded in 2003 by Dianna Amorde to inspire people to use all of their inner resources—make the most of the gifts of their intuitive right brain and integrate them with the analytical left brain—in order to confidently create a vision of what they truly desire and to generate the ideas, solutions, and decisions that lead to attaining that vision.

Dianna has a gift for guiding people to tap into their own intuitive and visionary knowing and applying that inner knowing or wisdom to the task at hand in order to enable individuals and teams to create the ideal solution and next steps.

In particular, Dianna is passionate about helping people generate the strategic vision and Aha! Moments that fuel transformation…inspired leaps. Her book, Aha! Moments: When Intellect & Intuition Collide, was released in 2009 to rave reviews and points to the need to bring intuition out of the realm of psychics and into the important decisions made daily by entrepreneurs and business executives.

About Dianna Amorde: Credentials

Prior to launching Inspired Leap in 2003, Dianna had a successful corporate career, including leading a division of Sierra On-Line and managing brands at Procter & Gamble. Dianna holds an MBA from Harvard University.

Dianna brings to her work a passion for excellence, a fun, engaging personality, and a unique blend of extensive corporate management experience and years of teaching and training others to fully engage and utilize the gifts of their intuition.

“One of the things I like most about Dianna is her unique ability to integrate right and left brain thinking with intuition and gut knowing. The result is a powerful confidence and clarity about the right next step.”

— Nishi Whiteley,
Owner, Turn Lane Consulting

As founder of Austin-based Inspired Leap and author of Aha! Moments: When Intellect and Intuition Collide, Dianna inspires people to generate brilliant ideas, achieve creative breakthroughs and make more effective decisions.

She does this via a unique blend of logical (left-brain) information and intuitive (right-brain) exercises, so your whole body, mind, and spirit embrace the change you seek.

Corporate clients range from REI in Kent, Washington to the Seton Family of Hospitals and the Lake Austin Spa Resort in Austin, Texas. Individual coaching clients range from senior executives in large corporations to small business owners.

(now part of Vivendi Universal); managing an extensive team of marketing personnel at Sierra; and creating and launching consumer products at Procter & Gamble. Dianna has also managed the business process (and employee turmoil) associated with making acquisitions; being acquired; and downsizing.

    Dianna left the hi-tech industry in 2001, eager to take her own inspired leap into a new career. Intensive study, including an exploration of professional creative writing, led to the launch of Inspired Leap Consulting Inc. Dianna relocated her business to Austin in 2004.

    A native of southern California, Dianna holds an MBA from Harvard University and a BS in business administration from the University of Southern California.

    Active in the Austin community, Dianna is a member of Texas Women in Business and eWomenNetwork, and Chaired the 19th Annual Money & Power Conference for the Women’s Chamber of Commerce of Texas. She has also been a supporter of the Long Center for the Performing Arts and a member of Impact Austin.

    When not helping people generate Aha! Moments, she’s playing with her beloved dog, Forest, or watching her USC Trojan football team (Go Trojans!).
