Diane Overgard is a certified Executive Life Coach, sought-after speaker, and published author. She is the Founder of 45 Degrees Coaching, providing individual and business team coaching to local, national, and international clients since 2004. She knows how adults learn and quickly establishes an energizing environment of trust and respect, with enough light-heartedness to encourage clients to open up, have fun, and try new behaviors. 

As a seasoned executive coach with a background in Adult Education, Diane understands that success in a professional life is enhanced by making a personal life incredible. To be truly successful at work, your “other” life has to work as well, and Diane knows what motivates people to make decisions and change behaviors. She will empower you to add more energy and satisfaction both at work and at home.


Diane has been a leader in the Naperville Speaker’s Bureau, National Council on Family Relations, KidsMatter Board of Directors, ParentsMatterToo, Naperville Chamber Women in Business, and a guest blogger for several professional organizations.

“Time very well spent on discovering the meaning of optimum performance and best self…in my personal and professional life. Choosing to partner with 45 Degrees was truly one of the best decisions and personal investments I’ve made to date!”
