Debra, The Career Coach
What in the world is "Career Coaching," you might be asking yourself. Debra likes to compare a career coach to an athletic coach or personal trainer. Even the very best athletes need a coach to guide them to the next level. Someone to listen to them, assess their situation and push their performance to the peak of their potential.
Perhaps you are at a point in your career where you need some help determining how to climb that corporate ladder. Maybe you're a stay at home parent who is looking to reenter the workforce. Possibly you're a clown college graduate who is looking for a career change.
Debra is your go-to gal.
These are one-on-one coaching sessions where Debra provides advice, guidance, and support. She is trained to concentrate on where a client is currently and then help that individual develop goals, plans, and action steps toward a future goal(s).
These sessions can be face to face, over the phone or, heck, Debra's even happy to Skype. If you want to fly her to Italy to have your session, she's game.
Debra charges $1 per minute and the typical session lasts around 75 minutes. (If you aren't a mathematician, that means each session is roughly $75.) Sometimes your plan of attack can be accomplished within a few sessions while other people find it more beneficial to have regularly scheduled meetings. Debra is more flexible than a rubber band and promises to always have your best interest top of mind.
If any of the above trips your trigger, simply reach out to Debra here for more information.

Debra met our company's program needs through two key elements: her pre-presentation work that allowed her to provide a high degree of 'customization,' and her 'performance' skills made the sessions interesting throughout the entire 2 hours.

Debra was extremely professional throughout the planning process, and was very dedicated to ensuring her session would hit the mark with our employees. Her dedication to creating a session that was tailor-fit for our group was evident in our pre-meetings. I truly appreciate Debra's enthusiasm, professionalism, and attention to detail. She was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to partnering with her again for future events. Thank you!

I booked Debra without ever having heard her, but as soon as she started speaking, my secretary and I just looked at each other and smiled. Debra's enthusiasm was evident from the very beginning of her presentation. She was dynamic, personable and captured the audience's attention. I would highly recommend her services and have referred her name to others in my facility.

Debra’s energy and engaging style brings the audience into the subject and makes them feel a part of it. We have done the Change Management session with two different groups and it is a great opening workshop for a day of other presentations that challenged the group with new ideas and change in our business.

Debra, speaking as a class participant in your coaching session today, I just want to say that you did an outstanding job. What I learned today is directly applicable to my job and in fact, I'm incorporating it as my short term growth objective that I'm required to establish as part of another training initiative I'm undertaking. Really good stuff! Thanks so much.
Steve Sawyer, Pearson
