Testimonials

Debbie Yost has been my coach in both a group setting and one-on-one.  I have enjoyed both very much. The group setting has focused on deepening my leadership skills and putting them into practice.  My on-on-one coaching  has focused on much more personal issues.  I believe Debbie’s skills as a coach are strongly applicable to any situation in life where one is facing change, decisions, challenges, or desires to move forward with more focused intention. 

Where I personally experienced the most profound impact was coaching with Debbie as I faced the very personal challenge of facing the death of a loved one from cancer.  The coaching experience provided me with so many things.  It provided a safe place to explore the wide variety of emotions I was feeling.  Through coaching I began to  accept the journey and to look for the gifts of new understanding and acceptance within it.  Always permission-based, Deb gently challenged me when my thinking wandered into black and white, and she consistently and gently observed inconsistencies and apparent contradictions in my beliefs and actions.  Together, we explored and discovered the strengths and gifts I already had, and looked at ways to utilize those in the current situation as well as ways to offer those gifts and strengths to others. 

It has been a marvelous, shared journey and I am grateful to both Deb and myself for the growth I have achieved.  I believe strongly in the coaching model.  Is it always comfortable?  No.  But that is ok.  Life isn’t always supposed to be comfortable.  And a certain amount of discomfort can lead us to amazing places we never dreamed of.  I encourage you to take your own journey and I wholeheartedly endorse Debbie Yost as your coaching companion.

Debbie, Coaching with you is great!, You help me to put things in perspective and try to stay focused. You helped me to organize a complete plan for recruiting, hiring a second in command, working with family and writing scripts. You helped me work through many difficult situations as a Coach and as a friend. You always supported me in my decisions but helped me realize the complete picture so I made better decisions. I would highly recommend you as a coach to anyone who wants to grow.

I want to take this moment to thank you for living your vision and touching people’s lives.  In 2010 when I asked the Universe for a mentor I had no idea what I ride I was in for!  You have exceeded my wildest expectations.  You have been such a part of the journey that I am on and there are truly no words to express my gratitude.  My world is expanded and my life is full of joy.  Thank you for seeing through my tough exterior enough to know that I would be a perfect candidate to join the “Living Your Vision Workshop” and the Leadership Coaching Group.  It has made a huge difference in my personal and professional life.  I am growing every single day.  I wake up alive and full of energy.  I could go on and on about the changes that have taken place and continue to take place in my life and now the lives of others who I touch with my love. 

You know I strongly believe in angels and you are certainly one of God’s angels. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I am forever grateful.

Coaching with Debbie has been a catalyst for positive change—both personally and professionally.  Debbie has an amazing ability to be both holistic in her coaching of ALL facets of life while being incredibly focused when it comes to helping her clients resolve particular roadblocks. 

 Above all else, I credit Debbie with helping us adjust our mindset to THINK like a CEO—it’s a skillset that she has in spades in her own business and it’s an ability that she both nurtures and teaches in every one of our interactions.  It seems that in all of business and life, growth starts in the heart and in the mind and then works its way out.  Debbie knows this.  She helps us think at a higher level—and that helps us achieve at a higher level!

Debbie, you are a fantastic Coach.  Your assistance in training my team was second to none. You assisted them with sticking to the process of the systems we implemented. Also your knowledge of people and personalities is unbelievable.  What you shared with us made us better people by being able to understand what type of personality we are dealing with.  We are able to serve the public’s individual needs when investing in their most important asset. Buying and selling a family home is the most important investment of their future. Your knowledge in internet marketing and lead follow up helped us to be able to achieve the status of #1 Team in Canada and #23 in North America for residential unit sales with Prudential Real Estate for 2008. Thank you again for helping us make our dreams a reality.

Coaching with Debbie has been wonderful! She is getting us on track with our business and that spills into our personal lives and things are going so much better since we started the coaching sessions. We were stuck and Debbie is helping us define our roles in the business, boundaries and just fabulous ideas for all parts of our business. I can’t recommend her enough. And she has a fabulous sense of humor!

Debbie has been an incredible coach for myself and my business. In previous coaching I would be driven to keep producing and working 24/7 to the point of exhaustion. I found Debbie through a Real Estate Conference and wanted to sell my business because of a loss in my life. My business was controlling my life with no end in site. Debbie has taught me to live again while still running my business. I have closed more transactions this year while enjoying some recreational and family time. I am choosing when and if I sell my business while increasing its profitability, systems, structure and client experience. Debbie is a fabulous coach!

Debbie is the most inspiring coach I have had, she has helped me discover what is truly important in life.  Debbie cares about your dreams and goals and helps influence you to find and achieve them (even if you don’t know what they are exactly.)  She is a deep thinker and an amazing leader.  I would highly recommend her coaching and mentoring.

Toril Schoepfer

Deciding to be coached by Debbie Yost was the single most important business decision we made in 2009.  We’ve seen a dramatic increase in our production since we started coaching with Debbie.  She is a gifted listener and business consultant who is able to help us identify areas of growth and opportunity that we would not have been able to see on our own.  She is incredibly invaluable to us and to our business.  Because of our coaching relationship with Debbie, we are more productive and efficient in the office and we have learned how to live more balanced and fulfilling lives.  If you desire to improve your life in any way, Debbie can help you achieve your goals!

Over the course of my career in real estate I have coached with 4 different coaches from 3 different companies. My experience with Debbie has clearly been the most positive and I feel has provided the most value. Debbie brings practical experience along with the ability to guide you thru the problem solving process so that you have a part in coming up with the solution. I would never hesitate to refer Debbie to anyone looking to create results in their business.

I have been coaching with Debbie Yost for the last 4 years and have been amazed at her ability to lead and grow me as a Realtor, Team Leader and as an individual! Her genuine care and art of gently pushing me to look at things differently have made all the difference in the world! Over this time we have been able to more than double our business, take more time off, and strengthen the foundation of my business. She cares about growing your business, making you a better leader and work/life balance. I would highly recommend coaching with Debbie to anybody looking to better their business and life!

Debbie Yost far exceeds what I expected in a coach.  She is so warm, kind and giving, yet an intelligent business woman.  After each session with her, I take away so much.  During my years in real estate, I have been aware I needed to develop a business plan that would be of benefit to me and my team, but never succeeded in putting it together.  Debbie has helped me develop that , and I’m so excited!!  She has raised my expectations and given me direction.  It is very hard to express Debbie’s value as a coach.  I’m very blessed to have found her.
