Style / Approach
Debbie is a gifted coach and facilitator who enables her clients – leaders and teams – to find their high performance peak. She brings them breakthrough techniques and challenges them to push their own boundaries. She has a self-generated transformation approach to coaching and her “blue-chip” experience with FTSE companies contributes to her clients resolving their challenges in innovative ways. This agile approach places particular focus on resilience, consistency and sustainability of the leader. For example, she helps CEOs create clarity of their direction, align engagement to that strategy and ensure delivery through others. They work on developing their authentic leadership style, identifying new leadership demands for those in new roles and diving into the more central arenas of self-limiting beliefs, low emotional intelligence and/or difficult conversations.
With over 3000 senior level coaching hours, Debbie has coached across numerous cultures – political and organisational – throughout Europe, the US, India, Russia, the Philippines, South Africa, Australia and Taiwan. Her clients are as wide-ranging as Centrica, Deutsche Bank, Prudential, SwissRe, Visa, Vodafone, Motorola, Channel 4, Five, ITV, KPMG, Unilever, Tate & Lyle, G4S, Hitachi, Prince’s Trust and Rexam (now Ball Corporation).
