Your Crisis Navigation PartnerTM

Life is full of crossroads. You don’t have to cross by yourself. 

As leaders, we are always juggling and balancing and making decisions. We show up every day, to navigate the twists and turns of our lives, and to fortify our colleagues and loved ones. To lead consistently — with confidence and authenticity — sometimes we need outside perspective. 

This isn’t therapy, counseling, or a 24/7 helpline. Connect2 offers a judgement-free zone for creating and implementing viable plans to move forward. Strategy sessions via phone and video provide convenient emotional and practical relief, empowering you to make better informed decisions, feel less stress and isolation, communicate more effectively, and save precious time.

About

I’m Debra Woog (pronounced like “Vogue”). I work from my home office in Arlington, MA, as my two terrific teenagers attend remote high school upstairs. By nature, I am a connector and a community builder. Connection and community are essential in a crisis. As a leader who has navigated my own unanticipated challenges, I know first-hand the value of smart, collaborative expertise, especially for women who feel solo in life or work. As supremely capable as we are, we are even better when we cross difficult roads together. 

With a B.A. in psychology from Wellesley College and an MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management, I am able to provide both emotional and practical underpinnings for problem solving, including research, resource matching, and communication strategy. I’m here for you.

Client Feedback

WORK LIFE BALANCE STRUGGLE

“With Debra, I have a person who I can really talk to about my own problems – all facets of them and my struggles – and who can be a sounding board and not afraid to tell me if I may be doing something she sees as off. Not that I cannot talk to my friends, but I don’t want to burden them too much.”

Job Loss

“Debra, in a short time frame and with great sensitivity and compassion, was able to assist me in clarifying the action steps I needed to take to get unstuck.”

Professional Crossroads

“I have really enjoyed connecting with you. One thing I have really learned is that I need verbal coaching. I spend so much of my time researching, reading, and writing, which is completely isolating. I need to talk to people — on the phone or in person. Ten minutes on the phone with you, even five, is completely transformational!”

Communications Challenge

“A 10-minute conversation with you was the most clarifying experience I’ve had lately. I was so excited to share your website with my two best friends today.”

Child’s Hospitalization

“I turn to you for clarity, clarification, quick thinking, wisdom and compassion. Your business education, leadership experience and administrative prowess impress the heck out of me. “
