The You-est You® Podcast

Dec 16, 2019

Well known for his work with corporations around the country, Dr. Dan Diamond equips leaders to make a difference when times are tough. Far from just motivational fluff, his rock-solid experience and trench-tested insights have been forged from the “front lines” of disasters around the globe. He was the Director of the Medical Triage Unit at the New Orleans Convention Center following Hurricane Katrina, led one of the first teams into Haiti after their devastating earthquake, and deployed to the Philippines following Typhoon Yolanda. Dr. Diamond is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine at Washington State University. He has received multiple awards including the Red Cross Real Hero Award, the Washington State Governor's Award of Excellence, and President Obama's Volunteer Service Award. He’s been seen on CNN, Anderson Cooper, and Larry King Live. This guy’s got something to say. Find Dr. Dan at
I am so very inspired by Dr. Dan's humility, desire to change the way we interact with one another from a more compassionate place and service to suffering human beings during disastrous events. Here are some of the beautiful take-aways from our conversation.
Things We Learned From This Episode
  • The loneliest generation is that of the 18 - 22-year-old population, they are lonelier than the isolated elderly population. Dr. Dan talks about how this is related to being disconnected to ourselves, others and the present moment. It's about being vs. doing, that needs to change.

  • The best way to comfort others in times of tragedy is to talk less, not avoid those in crisis and simply offer your gift of time and being with the person grieving or in a difficult experience. The simple art of being with others, giving a hug and spending time allowing for the other person to be grieving is priceless.

  • To make a real difference, think less of yourself and what the accolades or ways you can benefit, and think more about how you can serve humanity. Dr. Dan is living this on a daily basis and hope this inspires you to take inspired humble action.
