Debra Sunderland - JOYELY

Debra Sunderland


With decades of leadership coaching to CEOs, executives, founders, and teams- leading retreats and speaking, I support and challenge leaders and their teams in creating clarity, waking up to unconscious bias, strategic next steps, impeccable agreements, and win for all solutions that empower and change an internal culture. Shifting from drama, blame, and stress to trust, responsibility, and joy – I coach in a diverse range of industries: from hi-tech, wealth management, engineering, healthcare, marketing, and more. I also advise, consult, and chair continuous CEO boards and forums.

I specialize in awakening leaders to their genius(excellence and passion) by shifting from limiting beliefs and behaviors that lead to unwanted results, to creating what they most want. Leaders see to how they unknowingly create the opposite of what they say they want, and how to shift to new patterns that yield outcomes they were unable to achieve before our work together. Results are less stress, more alignment, continuous developing leadership, purpose driven decisions, more joy, self aware bias, engaging teams, trusting culture, inclusion of diversity, and higher revenue.

The core of my coaching is providing transformational tools to leaders and teams- to practice and implement into their life and leadership. My clients and their companies become the model of transformation, no matter where they are on their journey. Clients include RMB Capital, UBS, SESAC, PNC Bank, Mars, Highland Solutions, Gamma Partners, Brindley Engineering, Esser Hayes Insurance, and Nashville Public Radio.

I graduated from Miami University, hold a degree in Psychology, and am a certified coach and practitioner of The 15 Commitments of Conscious Leadership, the Integrative9 Enneagram, Corporate Goal Coaching, and CTI Co-Active training. Recent awards include Winner of Best in Biz 2019, and Enterprising Women of the Year 2020 Honoree. My work has been featured on Fox National/Local news, Crain’s Chicago Business, the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, and 190 N Television. My base is Nashville and Chicago- and reaching the world.

Inner MBA from NYU being completed May 2021.
