​​​​Partnership & Process


Trusted Thought Partnership So The Pieces Come Together

Years of MultiFaceted Experience 

​​​​​​Debra Raybold, PCC 


With specialized training in both the neuroscience of leadership and the science of wellbeing,  individual and group Coaching programs and workshops create lasting learning, powerful shifts, new insights, and sustainable momentum.  

When we stop jumping from model to model and idea to idea and align our unique perspectives with how we are wired as humans, we begin to gain momentum and experience the desired outcomes.   

After a successful career in leadership and now as an Executive Coach and Consultant with over 2200 hours of experience of working with people at all levels of organizational work, I bring critical ingredients for successful personal and professional development and change to conversations which:

•          simplify complexity into understandable and actionable dynamics, 

•          expand clarity on the vision and the right why behind it,
•          grow the skills, mindsets, and confidence needed,
•          identify and address constraints, and
•          design the steps for forward momentum.

​For over 15 years, I have Coached across many industries and within well known brands on diverse topics.   I work with a small team of like minded and like trained individuals when projects need more that one Coach.  

​​I partner with people individually, in groups as well as with and within organizations in highly customized ways.  I collaborate with a small group of very skilled and like-minded coaches for projects that support a team of coaches.   

Coaching is a highly personalized conversation science that uses evidence based models for how people work at their best to unlock perspective and movement toward a desired target. ​   ​Even this website is built on principles from the brain sciences. 


  • pairs micro-learning and interactive conversation to achieve clarity and momentum to close the gaps between what is and what is wanted;
  • uses evidence based practices that align with how humans most effectively engage, change, and thrive; 
  • creates an objective partnership for meaningful consideration, planning, idea generation, sound-boarding, learning, and path setting; and​ ​can be thought of as product development - where the product is you or your teams.
