"The means is dialogue, the end is learning, the purpose is peace." ~ Founder Dr. Jane Vella
Marianne Reiff was introduced to Jane Vella and Dialogue Education (DE) in 1996 when she dared members of a disgruntled Master of Adult Learning cohort to use DE principles and practices to reframe and reclaim their classroom experience. After seeing the transformational power of DE in action during a crisis, she signed up to learn more. She has been learning and experimenting ever since. For over two decades Marianne has used the principles and practices of Dialogue Education in higher education, corporate, health care and community settings. Retired from academia, she is active as consultant and coach in New England and globally on-line bringing these same ideas to new medical students, college cohort development, and non-profit boards. Marianne is additionally accredited as an ACC Coach with the International Coaching Federation, a True Colors Personality Style coach, and a certified Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner.
