Board Certified Coach* and author of the book, I Almost Missed My Life... Don't Miss Yours, Debra Russell has spent the last 30+ years coaching, consulting, speaking, and conducting trainings all over the world with people from all walks of life. She’s devoted to being a catalyst to inspire individuals and leaders to wake up, to come alive... to enjoy and share their unique talents and strengths with the world — and of course, to help others do the same!
Coaching and training for Debra is much more than just talking the talk; she leads by example. In spite of a very difficult childhood in Mississippi, jumping out of the frying pan into the fire with three marriages by the age of 22, and raising her two children on her own, Debra persevered. She is living proof we can utilize whatever comes our way to create something much greater. After 12 years as a hairstylist, this single mom and former welfare recipient finally decided to change her life and she’s been on a fascinating and wonderful adventure ever since!
In her early 30’s, Debra became committed to learning and applying personal development philosophies and techniques. She immediately began making changes and within one year she had turned around her personal life and doubled her income as a hairstylist. Within four years of embarking on this new journey, she had attained a coveted position as Head Trainer and General Manager of the multi-million dollar training organization, Robbins Research International, Inc.
Since deciding to build her own coaching, training, consulting business, Debra has traveled to The Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, England, Australia, Malaysia, China, and South America delivering keynotes and conducting seminars. She has given seminars in Breakthrough Thinking to entire organizations, worked at the executive level in strategic planning and implementation, helped insure smooth transitions in large mergers, built cross-cultural teams in organizations, trained managers in being seamless in their ability to handle conflict, trained sales teams and non-sales team members in the art of influencing, among many other projects.
Currently Debra lives in Westlake Village, CA. In addition to her private coaching practice and being a Master/Platinum Coach for the Tony Robbins Companies, she's passionate about inspiring a Strengths Movement in which individuals and leaders commit to being Strengths Heroes for themselves and others.
