I’m Kelly Diels

Writer, Speaker and Expert on Culture & Culture-Making

My research & frameworks help you use your culture making power to grow a robust and transformational body of work — so you can make the difference you’re dreaming of.

In your business, your life, and the lives of others.

I know that yes, we’re shaped by what we’re born into.

But nope, that’s not the end of the story.

Let’s Shape Back.

Because We Are The Culture Makers.

I admit, I’m not Generation X or Y.

I’m Generation O, for Oprah.

Oprah says use your life and I take it to heart.

I believe in

  • Using your life to make a difference in other people lives.
  • Changing conditions (and conditioning) so everyone can flourish.
  • Growing your talents, your skills, your power and your influence so you can flourish, too — right now, not just in some hypothetical future.

In other words:
I believe in being a culture maker.

ere’s the problem…

A lot of what we do and say — and even what we think — is predetermined by our conditioning and our material conditions.

In other words, the voice of culture is OFTEN working through us without our consent.

But culture isn’t just ‘out there’ or something that happens to us.

It happens through us.

If all of us disappeared tomorrow, so would our culture -- which means we are the vector.

And that reveals a huge opportunity: we get to choose how to deliberately use our culture-making power.

Instead of letting a toxic culture flow through us, we can learn how to interrupt it — and then use our skills & power to make a better one.

In our businesses, our lives and the world we live in, together.

I repeat:⁠

Yes, we can learn so much from the examples of people who’ve done innovative, enduring, culture-changing work...


The examples of iconic culture makers can also be object lessons in what NOT to do in our work and world we’re co-creating.

Don’t let the optics (esp of righteousness) do the thinking for us.
