A recent example is her work with Defran Systems, a human services software company focusing on Child and Family Services, Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities both non-profit and for-profit agencies. Working with the CEO and leadership team, she helped transform this 26-year-old company stuck in an agency and entitlement culture into a highly profitable, well-run business that was successfully acquired.

Her approach is to engage clients in coaching conversations that challenge them to generate new thinking beyond their current limits in a safe environment – helping successful leaders get even better.

Deborah’s home is anywhere her clients and work take her. When she is not on a plane or a client site, she rests and recharges at Estrella Mountain Ranch in the hills outside of Phoenix AZ.


I’ve been in IT for 20 years and the biggest struggle that I had on the job was feeling helpless and powerless in a lot of situations. I felt like I was an observer, not being able to participate in things that I knew I was qualified in participate in. My coach, Deborah helped me see that all of that helplessness wasn’t because of everyone else, it was because of me! This big epiphany allowed me to see that I was able to take action”

– Joe Hayden, Compass Learning, IT Director


No matter who are you, life can always get better. Deborah Huyer is everything a person could want in an executive coach. She is a patient listener, a deep thinker and has the knack for helping me discover the answers within myself that I’m unable to see. She has coached me through two very difficult career transitions, and I do not believe I could have made it to where I am today without her guidance.”

– Paul Hoeffer, Legal Systems Manager, Amazon


Deborah’s coaching supported me in making significant improvements in my leadership skills, creating my own definition of success, and being true to myself. She is an outstanding listener with creative and unique insights. I highly recommend Deborah as a coach to those who want to improve their effectiveness in any area of life.”
