Leadership starts with communication.

Employees leave cultures, not companies.

In order to be able to focus on your vision and become the leader you want to be, you need a team that you can trust to complete their roles with integrity. And, you need a team that stays because they feel valued and they want to be there.

As we navigate "the great resignation," it's more important now than ever that employees feel valued. When you understand your team's communication styles, you can ensure that you have the right person in the right role, increasing job satisfaction and retention.




Relational skills are the most important abilities in leadership.

~John C. Maxwell

Hey there! I'm Deanna...

Former teacher and school administrator turned communication coach.

If I've learned one thing in this life, it's that communication is the responsibility of the communicator. If your message isn't getting across, you have to know how to change your communication to fit the needs of the people you are speaking with.

As a former teacher, school administrator, and military spouse, I have always been focused on understanding people, finding the best in them, and communicating effectively. This skill has been integral to my success throughout my career.

When we can meet others where they are, we increase our capacity to build trust and lead them.

Leadership is not positional, and there is nothing stronger than showing empathy in the workplace.

I believe that when you understand yourself and others, you can overcome any barrier to communication.

You do not need a position to lead. You don't need permission to lead. All you need is a heart of service and a desire to look around and ask, "How can I best be of service to others?"

I can't wait to work with you!
