Challenging the Mindset of Future Leaders to Create an Authentic Path to Leadership

A Few Businesses, Associations, and Organizations That Debbie Has Worked With

“It was startling to discover that I was the one most in my way of achieving what I wanted in my career”

After years in corporate America, I hit the wall. I was so stuck, frustrated, and miserable in my job and couldn’t figure out what would make me feel otherwise. I didn’t feel that I was providing value, I knew that there was something more for me but had no idea what. I was unmotivated, unengaged, and unhappy.

It would be a few years later that I discovered how my thinking and attitude was keeping me in this awful place and what I could do about it. I got clarity of direction in my career, and shifted long held beliefs to propel me forward with more focus and momentum to get the results that I wanted. I also discovered that I wasn’t the only one. I knew if I could do this, then so could others, if they choose and it has become my mission to pay it forward.

Debbie is amazing to work with! We knocked it out of the park with this speaker hire for our annual Women on Banking Conference. She motivated and inspired our attendees, and gave them a lot of take-home ideas and energy. She was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. You won’t regret hiring Debbie for your next corporate event!

Vice President, Professional Development at Arkansas Bankers Association

I heard Debbie speak during the Nebraska Women in Banking Conference. I try to be aware of my body language, but never really thought about how I may–or may not be–projecting confidence just when I am walking. Her message about what we hold in our head and how it affects our body is something I continue to remind myself. I am working on becoming a more assertive communicator so I thank her again for her message, and the follow-up flier that was sent after the conference to the Nebraska Bankers Association. I appreciate your time greatly and thank you for the truly life-changing presentation!
