Deborah Goldstein

Seasoned Coach & Consultant, Serial Journaler, Meditator, Kayaker, Recovering Restauranteur 


Deborah Goldstein has been working with motivated professionals since 2009 as an executive coach and workshop facilitator with customized live and virtual programming. She is certified in Conversational Intelligence® (C-IQ®) and Diversity Coaching (through CDI and Howard University). It’s Deborah’s personal mission to support professionals in realizing their greatest career and personal potential. She works one-on-one with clients and she partners with whole organizations to build cultures of trust, alleviate workplace stress, and empower teams and individuals to optimize their productivity.

Deborah believes that true potential can be realized when aspirations are aligned with values, and intentional practices are employed continuously. Her coaching is built on a foundation of neuroscience, which is fundamental to emotional and mental energy. Her role is to act as a proverbial guardrail and thought partner, helping clients stay on course yet remain flexible enough to pivot, thereby maintaining resilience and resolve. 

Her coaching focuses on creating DEI cultures of psychological safety and “Intentional Productivity”, holistically motivating professionals to lead richer lives. Leveraging her Diversity Coaching training, Deborah works with women and members of the BIPOC community on moving into their authentic power. Her GRACE In The Workplace™ coaching and group programs empower women to create self-leadership protocols, transforming them into effective and respected leaders. 

Deborah is a member of the Forbes Coaches Council and has been featured on Bloomberg Surveillance TV. She is a frequent contributor to the business blogging website Iris as well as the women’s lifestyle website The Three Tomatoes. She is a GLG Council Member, sits on the Global Advisory Council of IMPACT Leadership 21, the NYC Leadership Council of BIAAG, and the Board of Directors at SEEK Safely. She is a graduate of Cornell University.

“Deborah gleans what is needed during coaching sessions to leverage the variety of tools she has in her coach’s toolbox. From intentional productivity habits to emotional and conversational intelligence skills, Deborah tailors and delivers her leadership coaching in a way that was both motivating and impactful – she never stopped thinking about ways she could help me and how she could avail her extensive network and resources for my benefit. I highly recommend Deborah to anyone who is looking to unlock their full potential, increase their level of self-awareness, navigate cultural politics and create goals focused on achieving personalized development objectives.”
