Coach Deb is now an Energy Leadership Index master practitioner

After many hours of coaching, seminars and classroom hours Deborah Korbel of Bountiful Blissful Beginnings is ELI-MP certified.

As individuals, we see the world through different lenses or filters (based on our experiences, values, assumptions, etc.). Our lenses or filters will either limit what we see (like tunnel vision) or expand what we see (like a prism) and, thus, impact how we perceive and what we think about our circumstances. This, in turn, impacts how we show up in different situations. The Energy Leadership Index assessment reveals what specific filters you’ve developed and how those filters are influencing the results you’re achieving.

Korbel is a career transition coach and offers individual or group coaching to organizations and businesses. She will guide you in expanding your awareness of how you and or your team shows up to see and experience life/career through a much clearer lens by attracting what you desire. The client sets the agenda whether it is productivity, meaningful life, better relationships, life purpose, etc.
