Feel Whole and Fulfilled in their Work

I now see how to tie my passion to my work, and the
importance of giving myself permission to prioritize time
for doing the things that get me into my A-Game.

People impact the bottom line of any organization.
But they may be struggling with motivation, ideation, and performance. 
When people can tap into their most compelling self-motivators,
their innovative thinking, and their performance excellence on demand,
they go on to be fully engaged, deeply fulfilled, and at the top of their game.

That's Where Diane Allen Comes In...

Hi! I'm Diane and as a young student I dedicated my heart and soul to becoming a violinist. Feeling bullet-proof with my New York City violin training, I’d show up to my auditions feeling invincible. Instead, my nerves would get the better part of me. Unable to get work, I was facing an unfulfilling life with my music trapped inside of me.

After 10 years, I discovered that by deeply focusing on my musical interpretation I’d get into the music, drop my nerves, and experience personal bests. Turns out, my deep focus gave me access to the flow state, an optimal state of mind when we feel our best and perform our best.

So, I made getting into flow a repeatable process. (TED talk)

With my new-found prowess, I flourished as the concertmaster (lead violinist) of the Central Oregon Symphony and taught hundreds of violin students. 

Copper Dragon Violin in hand, I now deliver Keynote Performances that combine music, visuals, psychology, and neuroscience along with the specific steps for people to engage deeply, be highly productive, and tap into creativity.

Through my proprietary three-step Flow Strategy™ system, participants learn to access the peak performance that already exists within them, make it a repeatable process, and discover how to exude their influential energy and lead.

Flow Bridges the Gap between Employers and Employees

The 3 Stages of Incorporating Flow Into the Workplace


Inspirational programs replenish the stores of your employees’ mental and emotional states. They strengthen the foundation of a positive psychology based culture by awakening people's motivation, productivity and fulfillment.



Being in flow opens people up to maximizing on their potential. Education on the psychology and neuroscience of flow increases awareness and the Discover Your Flow Strategy™ system empowers people to “get into it” both on purpose and with purpose. To know your Flow Strategy™ is to know what makes you tick.



Implementing Flow Strategies™ along with systems to Exude Influence and Ignite Group Flow, increases the amount of time people spend in flow. Outcomes include higher levels of productivity, outstanding performance levels, access to innovative thinking, and increased leadership. Best part? People’s overall happiness and satisfaction in life increases.

Diane’s ability to talk about the philosophy behind her Flow State while simultaneously communicating it auditorily through her music was an incredible combination. It translates beautifully and it’s something you won’t want to miss!

Elizabeth Williams Editor, Modern In San Antonio

I thought the way Diane incorporated sound into her presentation was unique. My brain started to associate the steps with the music allowing me to remember the information in a different way. It’s not often you receive sales training that is correlated to music – it really resonated with me!
