Welcome! I am Dr. Ann Dinan, founder of the Deeper Leadership Institute and an international leadership consultant, ICF-certified coach, facilitator, speaker, and author. I am active in the emerging field of Peace Leadership, which I define as the nexus of both Positive Peace and Positive Leadership, which has applicability to CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) mandates, culture change initiatives and a plethora of other applications. Additionally, I am the co-convener of the Peace Leadership Affinity Group for the ILA (International Leadership Association) and previously on Faculty for the Whole Foods Academy for Conscious Leadership.
Formerly I was the Head of North American Operations for the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI) and while working with GRLI in this capacity I invited and hosted the former Nobel Laureate and President of Finland, Martti Ahtisaari to keynote for the Business As A World Benefit conference. Discussions with President Ahtisaari helped me to recognize my purpose in life with regard to peace leadership and the wide spanning applicability of this emerging field.
Currently I am writing several books and book chapters on Peace Leadership and Human Unity for Peace. I have recently spoken at the Oslo Peace Week, sanctioned by the Nobel Institute. Additionally, I have consulted for and coached with, major international organizations such as P&G, Great American Insurance, Whole Foods, Avendus (India), to name a few recent clients. I have also worked with family owned and not for profit business at all levels from emerging leaders to Managing Directors, CEOS, Directors of Marketing and Sales and IT, Physicians, Nurse Leaders, HR leaders, General Managers, Superintendents, and VP levels.
Additionally, I annually organize conferences and retreats around relevant subject matter around the globe.
I am an ICF-Certified Coach who has Certification in the Leadership Circle Products as well as many others, and have completed training in Organizational Relationship and System Coaching and Leadership and Self Deception. I have served as the Vice President of Program Development for The Greater Cincinnati ASTD (American Association of Training and Development), and as a volunteer consultant and coach for the non-profit, ESCC (Executive Service Corps of Cincinnati) and have lived and worked overseas and brings those experiences to her work through cultural competency and expatriate training and coaching.
