Debbie Roos, SHRM-SCP, is the founder of Simply People. She is a Gallup Certified Strengths Coach and is trained to coach entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs in Gallup’s Builder Profile methodology. Roos works with teams of all sizes to help them understand their dynamics and leverage their teammates appropriately. She also works one-on-one with executives, managers, and front-line contributors to set and achieve objectives, both professional and personal. Roos’ coaching experience includes clients in both the profit and non-profit sectors, and in industries ranging from professional services (accounting, legal services, health insurance), religious institutions, and education to retail, construction, and media production. A seasoned leader with 25+ years spent growing and developing people in organizations such as Accenture, USAA, and HEB, Debbie’s coaching career began long before she entered the business world. It began with her father, a retired Brigadier General, coaching her: “If you take care of the people, they’ll take care of you.” This philosophy earned her both the moniker “Chief Gardner” and the San Antonio Business Journal “C-Suite Award” in 2017.
