Meet Debra A. Salz!
Debra A. Salz is a quadruple threat: trainer, facilitator, coach, and motivational speaker extraordinaire.
This isn't Debra's first rodeo. She has motivated, challenged, and (dare we say) dazzled participants since 1993. Yes, you read that right.
She has the smarts to back it all up, too. Debra is a licensed social worker through the state of Iowa, earned her BA from Buena Vista University, and her AA from North Iowa Area Community College. Debra has spent her life, both professionally and personally, providing customized training programs and keynote addresses to businesses, organizations, and clients through her “toolbox” methodology.
A few other things you might like to know: She is a member of the Society for Human Resource Management, American Counseling Association, and the Eastern Iowa Human Resource Association.
And while based on her energy level you'd likely assume that coffee runs through her veins, you'll be shocked to know she doesn't drink the stuff. Debra is fueled by 100% fruit juice.
The story behind our name.
Debra passionately believes that every human being has the capability to be anything; many times poor choices are what prevents success. The key to success, professionally and personally, is to have the tools and strategies to know how to prevent poor choices from being made. And thus, Prevention Services & Strategies was born.
What is toolbox methodology?
When most think of a toolbox, they imagine hammers, measuring tapes, and the like. Debra, however, likes to think outside of the conventional (tool)box, using it as an analogy. Work and life throw lots of challenges at us. We are all armed with a toolbox (made up of our formal education, personal experiences, trial and error, etc.) to best handle these situations. Debra helps figure out how to best identify the, saaaaay, monkey wrench currently in your toolbox and use it in a new way. Debra even helps determine which tools are ready to be put to rest. She’ll arm the audience with new tools they may not have recognized before. Even Big Box stores pale in comparison to the amount of tools Debra can offer up to your participants!
