“I feel very fortunate to work with Debbie as my coach. Together we are focused on a career-oriented goal. She has helped me to identify my strengths and build on those, and to identify options that I might not have imagined on my own. She helps me feel good about the things I do well, and encourages me to try things that intimidate me. I really appreciate having regularly-scheduled conversations with her, thus requiring me to constantly assess my efforts and report my progress. Her insight offers important bias-neutral feedback, and provides clarity when I get caught up in the details. And I cannot imagine how I could have tackled this difficult task without her encouragement. I feel that with her help, I am much further down a road I might have been afraid to take on my own.”
