My story

I’m Diana Berlin: reader, writer, collaborator, leader, coach, artist, product manager, podcaster, and partner. I share my life online because talking about what’s true for me brings me closer to the world I want: a world where expression wakes us up.

These days, I work at Quip as a product manager. Around the edges, I coach clients and make a podcast called Should We.

As a leadership coach, I work with clients to develop their self-awareness, decisiveness, and sense of purpose. I work side by side with Lisa Sanchez.

I speak up about things that matter. Past speaking engagements include the inaugural Women in Product conference, BrioROFLCon, Dreamforce, and others. Reach out if you have an opportunity in mind.

My best friend Lisa and I make a podcast called Should We: creative conversations about the everyday choices that make us. For the past three seasons, we’ve tackled all of life’s most (and least) important questions one by one, sharing all the secrets we can along the way.
