March 3, 2014 – Debby Magnuson

March SHIFT Forum – Career and Leadership Development Strategies


Join us on Monday, March 3rd for a SHiFT Forum with Debby Magnuson, VP of Talent Management with CPI Twin Cities.  How did an interior design major (and former Dairy Duchess) end up working with executives across the country to help them solve tough leadership challenges, co-author two books, and make the transition into career coaching and talent management consulting?  We all have a career story to tell, and Debby’s journey is infused with insights on how the job market is shifting for all the generations, as well as best practices for establishing and communicating your personal value proposition in order to make  the purpose-filled, energizing contribution you were born to make in the world.

Debby Magnuson is an executive coach, career counselor, and leadership development consultant and speaker.    One of her research and presentation specialties is managing across generations, and she is co-author of the book, Work With Me: A New Lens on Leading the Multigenerational Workforce.    Debby has been a regular keynote speaker, group facilitator and presenter to audiences large and small for many years.

As an executive coach Debby works with clients to:

  • Evaluate skills, values, interests, strengths, and preferences
  • Develop a deeper self awareness of goals and aspirations
  • Confirm commonality of experiences with others
  • Assess current behaviors in context of their impact on future happiness and well being
  • Measure preparedness for the next stage of life
  • Plan for later life options and implement the plan to achieve new goals

Before joining CPI, Debby was Sr. Consultant in Leadership Development for Personnel Decisions International (PDI), where she worked with corporate leadership teams on a wide variety of development topics.  Her business experience includes 17 years with Dayton’s/Marshall Fields and Target Corporation as a sales educator and leadership development facilitator.  Debby is on the faculty of St. Catherine University’s Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership (MAOL) program, and she is an instructor in St. Kate’s Leaders of the New Millennium program for emerging women business leaders.
