Deborah Hartmann Preuss

My name is  Deborah Hartmann Preuss

I help  people who create change  to have more joy and
more impact, by bringing their strengths to 
a bigger game
through one-on-one effectiveness coaching. I also teach important influencer skills: coaching, leadership and facilitation.

Come, show up in all your wisdom, passion and uniqueness, to create vibrant workplaces, teams and products.

In the past, I've been a software developer, a business analyst,
an artist, a ScrumMaster and an Agile coach :-)
But since 2003 I've had a different focus.

While serving as an Agile Coach and Trainer in Canada,
the US and Europe, in tiny firms and multi-nationals,
I sought to improve my leadership with the skillset of professional coaching,
in response to important needs I saw among my clients
that were unaddressed by the Agile Software methods I brought.

As I developed these new skills, I discovered how focused one-on-one coaching
can make a big difference in the effectiveness and happiness of
organisational change agents, and the rest is history!
