Diane Gallo

Home: Houston, Texas.  Age: Old enough to be wise, young enough to enjoy life.  Profession: Consultant on all things people and culture.

Current project: Matchmaking senior executives to positions for a boutique search firm.  Latest contribution to others: Listening quietly.  Hobbies: Reading and my dogs.  Last book read: Catholicism for Dummies.  Recently viewed and recommended: Tick, Tick…Boom.  Bio-pic on playwright Jonathan Larsen (Netflix).

Moral compass: Well calibrated.  How do you define an ideal business relationship? Authentic.  What is your greatest joy? Seeing others whom I have helped succeed.  What is your greatest fear? Running out of time before running out of things I want to do.  What occupation, other than your own, do you most admire? First responders.

What book have you repeatedly read? The Key, by Cheri Huber.  What is the best advice you received growing up? Be grateful for what you have, not envious of what you don’t.  What is the best advice you received in your career? There isn’t only one “right” way to do something. What is the best lesson you ever  learned? That life can change your plans in an instant.

What is your big idea? Still working on it…  What change would you like to see in the world? Eradication of hate.  What message do you want to send out into the world? Is it really worth arguing about?   What grounds you? Real faith in God.

What title would you choose for the movie about your life? A Dogged Life (pun intended).  What actor would you choose to play you in the movie about your life? Maura Tierney, she always looks pensive.  Who would you like to spend an evening with, in Heaven? My parents.  What advice would you give your younger self? Don’t take things too seriously.

Personal motto: “If not this, then better…”  Favorite quote: “Man plans, God laughs" (Yiddish proverb).  Desired epitaph: On to the next adventure…
