I’ve helped administrative assistants master soft skills and leadership skills that lead to more satisfaction, influence and recognition at work. I’ve also helped executives approach productivity strategically and realize the full potential of support staff. That’s my mission. I’m not one to toot my horn, so I’ll let them tell you what it was like to work with me.
Feedback from our clients.
"I had an awesome 'pick-your-brain' conversation with Debbie last week. Let me tell you she is a powerhouse of information/advice. I had a situation I needed an unbiased 3rd party point of view and she gave me her spin on things and my problem is solved. I strongly suggest other EA's, PA's and AA's swing by her website and check out her offerings. It's well worth it."

I have been an Executive Assistant to the President and CEO of our organization for 10 years… have found myself overwhelmed and defeated when I look back at the end of the day consumed by the calendar. Thanks to your workshop I am encouraged to take measurable and realistic steps to gaining a better sense of control over my day and my executive’s calendar!"

"I was floored by all that Debbie juggled and accomplished over her career. I had no idea how much CEOs rely on their executive assistants to make sure they can do an amazing job, and it was clear that she played a significant role in her CEO's success. Even more, I was blown away by her passion for developing other people in her field. The skills and tools she developed over the years aren't just valuable for other EAs. They're essential success skills for anyone who has a demanding corporate job or a business to run."

"Debbie has written a remarkably insightful book that reveals the secrets of becoming a true business partner to any leader who manages teams or companies. Her lessons shared throughout the book will help administrative professionals and their managers think more strategically. This book should be 101 in every company where a senior leader is looking to hire an EA who can think strategically and tactically, connect with people, think three steps ahead, and be caring."
