Committed to developing individuals around her and helping them reach personal and professional goals, Deborah speaks from the heart when relating her own life experiences to those who value her counsel.
“I coach and mentor, to really dig deep and find out who people are,” Bateman says. “Not who your parents wanted you to be, not who your friends think you should be. But really and truly who you are. To have that target design of knowing ourselves and our purpose is absolutely paramount. Too many people – men and women – are a result of being who someone else has asked them to be.”
