ANEWDAY’s founder, Debra Birks, loves to tell a good story. Whether for small or large groups, Debra draws on her experiences and wisdom to deliver insightful and motivating talks on brave leadership, courage cultures, high performing teams and how to maintain resilience through it all.
Debra is a goal oriented coach who produces tangible results through her wonderful ability to ask the right questions during crucial conversations. She is continuously supportive and encouraging of her people while maintaining admirable professional discretion.
Deb brings to the coaching table significant business experience and commercial acumen coupled with maturity, common sense and a deep understanding of coaching practices. Deb has the ability to engage participant’s strengths, unravel complex challenges, enhance their skills and shift behaviours to deliver better business results. I highly recommend Deb as a senior executive coach.
Debra was instrumental in helping me focus on my goals and understanding my motivation and values. All this done in a marvellously understated way. I found Debra extremely knowledgeable about current coaching techniques and tools.
A true professional and a person who I highly regard and trust. Could speak freely without judgement or consequence. Refreshing. Authentic.
I find Deb to be thought provoking, and a highly skilled professional coach. I chose to tackle issues centered around relationship building, which Deb has very specific skills and as such it was a very good fit with my coaching needs.
Deb and I met at a point in time when I had some decisions to make. She’s smart, knowledgeable and willing to customize her programs for driven outcomes. On a personal level she kept me focused and provided great counsel, all in good humour too!
Deb's work with key Nova teams has had an instant impact and enhanced a harmonious and supportive working environment.
I found working with Deb to be challenging and at times confrontational. In the end it has been a transforming experience, both on a personal and professional level providing me with many new tools and insights for success.
Debra has a strategic mind so quickly grasped our business dynamics and issues. Her time with our team helped us focus on the core of the challenge, to understand what leadership approach was required to create a culture and an aligned set of priorities across a large virtual team.
Under Deb’s terrific tutorage I saw first-hand the impact she can have in fostering growth in developing executives by helping them build the insight, knowledge and judgment they need to succeed. If you are thinking about using her services, go ahead and just do it, you won’t regret it
At the end of Debra’s coaching you feel refreshed, strong and positive. Deb’s a great coach. It’s like speed dating – you get in there, do the work, and then quickly move things forward.
A remarkable experience. I learned a lot about my leadership style, and about how to optimise my behaviours according to unique situations. I am better placed with my leadership team, and feel empowered and confident as a result of Debra’s coaching.
Debra is a highly respected and valued coaching partner. Her experience as a successful business leader and her knowledge of the media industry, informs and enhances her coaching style. Debra has helped Foxtel develop a motivated, highly skilled and strong leadership group.
You inspired me to believe in myself and make it happen. I doubt I would be anywhere close to where I am now with a clearer perspective on business if I had not met you.
The world needs Brave Leaders, Brave Boardrooms, Brave Teams, Brave Educators, Brave Communities and Brave Organisations. If you want to future proof your organisation in readiness for complexity and challenge, then you better develop your leadership pipeline.
