Deb facilitated my professional growth from an individual contributor into management, and then to senior management. Her vast experience and supportive coaching style made me into the effective leader that I am today.
Sue J., director of cross-organizational corporate support group for a large corporation
Debbie has been an essential part of my growth as a leader this year, as I’ve navigated through a corporate merger and met many new challenges. She helps to bring out the best in me, helping me to hone & grow my skills, while providing me with a trusted and competent resource to be able to bounce off ideas and share my confidential thoughts.

What stands out from being coached by Debbie during my career transition is her direct approach and ability to immediately ask the important questions. I left each conversation with achievable action steps. There is opportunity everyday to use the skills I’d gained from the work I did with Debbie; and my players and students benefit from the way I help them tackle obstacles that are hindering their progress. Debbie helped me develop skills I can adapt to different environments and that have long shelf lives.

I take my leaps forward from the way Debbie asks a question. And her ability to synthesize information in to a new package gives me the opportunity to reflect on new ways to approach old problems.
