Connie Gage: Debbie was an incredible training leader for our board retreat! Her level of professionalism, ability to engage the members throughout the morning, the team-building exercise were spot on! We had many things to take away from this event and to hold each other accountable for the upcoming year to make sure we do our best to complete our objectives.
~ Connie Gage, South Tampa Chamber 2019 Chair of the Board
Tina Dallas: I was blessed enough to receive a gift of three Life/Business Coaching sessions with Debbie Lundberg. Oh, what a gift! My goal in working with Debbie was to become more confident and obtain a better-paying position with growth opportunities at a solid company. Mind you, I worked for the same company for 20+ years and the thought of being interviewed was terrifying! Debbie not only helped me create my resume, she also equipped me with the tools I needed to successfully interview with confidence. Within just a couple of weeks of my last coaching session with Debbie, a company contacted me for an interview...not just any company, but a company that was voted #1 by its employees in the local area. The interview process was grueling - 5 interviews, 3 of those with a panel. I was hired within one month of my first interview...and with a very nice pay increase. This would not have been possible without Debbie's invaluable guidance and support. I am forever thankful!
~Tina Dallas, Project Manager, New York Life
Paul Stevenson: While working with Debbie not only have I improved as a manager, but my entire staff has benefited from her tutelage. She has helped us improve in the areas of effective delegation, availability, and our hiring and performance review processes. Her ability to quickly process information and give meaningful and defensible advice is unparalleled. It was obvious she invested significant time behind the scenes to quickly become familiar with our business and processes. As a result, I have yet to challenge her with a topic that was outside her ability to provide meaningful and sound advice. I would highly recommend Debbie and her services to any business professional seeking growth and improvement for themselves and/or their organization. I have never regretted retaining her services and the return on my investment has been outstanding.
~Paul Stevenson, Partner, McCormick Stevenson
Rick Erickson: Debbie was responsible for Leadership and Sales Development company-wide at a former company where I was the Senior Vice President, Sales & Operations.
Debbie’s strengths include building strong collaborative relationships with leaders within the company to assess personnel and developmental needs, and building training modules to improve individual and team performance. She has outstanding presentation skills. Debbie was a key contributor in leadership personnel evaluations, identifying developmental needs for Sales Directors and personnel in all levels of sales and client service roles. She developed core competencies and evaluation tools for all sales and service positions. Debbie’s a very quick study, has great attention to detail. Debbie is a great asset to any organization.
~Rick Erickson, Director, CRI LLC
Donna Lancaster: I contacted Debbie to assist me in transitioning in my work-to-life balance. She first helped us define the company and set qualities so we were able to successfully hire a person to take over many of my duties. She partnered with the hiring process and has continually checked in on my progress. I have been trying to make this transition for several years and without Debbie, I am sure I would not be as far along as I am in the short amount of time we have worked together. My goal was to be able to enjoy the holidays with family without being consumed with work and I am working toward that with Debbie's encouragement. She is an amazingly insightful person who gives of herself generously. It goes without question that she is extremely qualified to identify problems and inspire individuals, as well as companies or groups. Her energy and optimism are contagious. Debbie is an extremely valuable asset to my life.
~Donna Lancaster, Vice President, Johnson-Lancaster and Associates, Inc.
