NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Debra Bednar-Clark, former Head of Global Strategy & Growth for Facebook's Creative Shop, has launched a unique career and leadership coaching firm that incorporates both elements of substance and style for women who want to achieve maximum success and fulfillment in their professional lives.

Working with individuals and corporations, DB+co's multi-dimensional approach gives women the confidence to embrace and present all facets of their authentic, "whole self," thereby increasing their competency as leaders. Unlike other coaching firms, DB+co recognizes how linking women's values, purpose and passions to those of the organization can facilitate both individual and organizational growth.
"As a female leader in tech, I felt like I had to compartmentalize my identity, separating my 'true feminine self' from my corporate persona, which left me feeling incomplete and that I had something more to give. When I brought my whole self forward, I was able to not only make a greater impact but also be fulfilled doing so! I started DB+co because I realized I wasn't alone. The modern working woman is eclectic, dynamic, complex and wants to embrace it all, but has lacked the guidance and support needed to do so," said Ms. Bednar-Clark.
"But we can't separate the corporation from the woman. We must arm companies with more progressive approaches to investing in their female talent. Only then can we start to imagine a world where women maximize their impact, companies become more successful, and we create an ecosystem where everyone is more fulfilled," said Ms. Bednar-Clark.
DB+co serves women looking to thrive in today's workplace and the organizations that want to recruit and retain them, advocating that the two must stand in solidarity to create a new generation of leaders. Its services, available in workshops, webinars and one-on-one sessions, include:
- Partnering with people managers and human resource executives to improve cultures, policies, and programs regarding women's leadership
- Coaching individuals to identify, nurture and champion what makes them unique so they can lead in a way that is authentic for them
DB+co currently serves clients from companies including Amazon, Hearst and Condé Nast.
"At Facebook, I had the remarkable experience of witnessing up close the launch of COO Sheryl Sandberg's 'Lean In' movement, empowering women to play a bigger role in pursuing leadership roles and ensuring their voices are heard at work," said Ms. Bednar-Clark. "DB+co builds on that momentum, taking the movement a step further to also incorporate that intersection of substance and style, bringing all the dimensions of a woman into a singular role."
DB+co is a leadership-coaching firm founded in 2016 by Debra Bednar-Clark. It is committed to showing women a portal to a new kind of leadership, one that celebrates how we think and feel—along with how we look and act. Her approach, Know Yourself to Show Yourself, is based on aligning who we are on the inside with what we display on the outside.
DB+co offers services for corporations and individuals, advocating that the two must stand together to create a new generation of leaders. Ms. Bednar-Clark merges her corporate leadership expertise with an affinity for style. Her Facebook blog, DB Style, on fashion, beauty and design, has nearly 100,000 followers and can be found at, https://www.facebook.com/DB-Style-121609184551274/?pnref=lhc.
