Diane L. Dunton, M.S.
Founder and Principal

An expert in organizational dynamics, Diane has over thirty-five years of professional experience in organizational development, operations and human resources. Her proven abilities in developing organizational effectiveness, leadership training, executive coaching, strategic planning, and facilitation have made her a sought after human resource consultant since founding Potential Released Consulting Services in 1996.


A skilled facilitator in visioning, restructure, search conferences and open space technology, Diane successfully works with organizations from the private, public and non-profit sectors and national organizations on large change efforts. She leads over twenty workshops annually for diverse organizations across all industries, including Fortune 500 companies, and regularly presents at numerous large conferences.


Diane discovered the healing power of the creative arts after the untimely death of her first husband and her own journey with breast cancer. A freelance writer, book author, avid cyclist, photographer and accomplished portrait and landscape artist, she is also a practicing Reiki Master and Trainer. Diane finds these talents enrich her professional life and deepen the work she does with clients. She is a skilled motivational public speaker, sharing her life experiences and assisting others in nurturing their own creative life energy to discover and pursue their passions.


Diane has served on the boards of the American Society for Autism Treatment and the Good Shepherd Food Bank, and donated her time to the Dempsey Cancer and Community Center, and the Tri for A Cure and Relay for Life cancer fundraisers. She lives on the water with her husband in the Lakes Region of Southern Maine.
