“Deb promises to bring people’s strengths to a bigger game. True: she is walking her talk. I now have a seizable idea what that really means to me.
Deb promises to apply one-on-one effective coaching. True again: she is walking her talk. What mind-blowing leverage such a plain phone call can have.”

“Working with Deborah is joy. She takes care of the right setting of the coaching, has well prepared documents for agreements, is very organized and punctual. She works very concentrated and is a very attentive listener. I discovered how effective coaching is on the telephone. Her skills and imagination worked well with my world. I felt free to be creative and linked with my inner world. Sometimes she was accompanying me, sometimes she really asked the right thing at the right time. Her questions are often amazing. There was everything from tears to laughter in the coaching. Thanks for your work Deb!”

“Deborah coached me during a difficult period where I was leading a major agile transformation at Siemens HS. Through Deborah’s coaching I was able to crystallize my vision, put my attention and focus on the right levers and become much more adept in managing personal conflicts and resistence. Deborah is a great coach who is extremely empathatic, perceptive and willing to challenge assumptions and beliefs that were limiting my ability to move forward. I would highly recommend Deborah to anyone involved in leading change.”

“[…] the result is even more valuable than what I was expecting. She is able to listen very carefully, with a lot of empathy, and can lead you to other points of view that will help you to open new possibilities. She is able to make you think about your values and create the link with the current situation. It was amazing how I changed my way of handling difficult situations… and as a secondary effect, it makes my life much easier.”
Philippe Launay, Manager and Agile Coach, Agfa Healthcare, Bordeaux France / 2012
“Hiring Deb turned out to be one of the best investments I’ve made in myself. She has a genuine way about her of getting me to explore what’s happening and what is true for myself. This isn’t always comfortable for me but it does get me to the heart of an issue. Her intuition as a coach serves well as she holds me accountable to what is true for me. As a result of our work together I am done with playing small. This shift is impacting all parts of my life as my love for my wife is stronger than ever, my business is accelerating forward, and I no longer feel I need to be something I’m not. As I have become a Co-Active Coach myself … I aspire to be the coach Deb is.”

Thanks!”

Deborah est extrèmement généreuse de son temps et elle est constamment à la recherche du dépassement, autant pour elle que pour ses nombreux clients.
