The Positive Psychology of Peak Performance:
The Flow State
Keynote Performances & Virtual Solutions
empowering people to be in their A-Game
anytime, anyplace, no matter how high the pressure.
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 a 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 became 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.

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING...
"Thank you for speaking for MPI Oregon. You are a pleasure to work with and I really wish all speakers were half as kind, helpful, and flexible as you. Your professionalism is unparalleled. Meeting Planners are lucky to have you in their contacts."
Chase Brunson, CMP - Convention Services Manager Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland Washington Square
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!
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!
Very enlightening and motivational.
Remembering the power of my heartspace – WOW! 15 feet is amazing! Good, useful tools for success and remembering to pause to focus on my body, mind, and spirit. Thank You!
After today’s session with Diane Allen, I can see myself developing a productive physical response to release any unwanted paralysis.
Very Helpful! Now I will make sure to stop and conquer my Body/Mind/Spirit before acting on a difficult action. Looking forward to sharing this with employees who are stuck on a plateau.
Thank you once again for blowing us over with your heartfelt messages that speak to our mission. We simply cannot imagine a more perfect fit for our members.
Great presentation – Thank you. I learned so much especially how to get out of my own way.
Thank you for the wonderful tips for getting past nervous “shut down”. So HELPFUL.

I am now able to serve others more confidently by connecting to my passion of helping others.
Diane is a wonderful speaker. I appreciate the positive outlook combined with physical tools.
It’s invaluable to leave with specific methods to perform in your A-Game.
I loved this presentation at SHRMA! Now that I know how, I am going to get out of my own way!
After hearing Diane’s warm, confident, and inspiring presentation, I can see myself realize on my potential as a confident person and performer.
I absolutely loved it! Diane was direct, clear, and relatable. I discovered that I need to stop keeping my passions to myself and use them as a way to lead others.
