Discover your Emotional Potential

How you show up matters

Learn about:

✅ The significance of attachment styles from early childhood and how they still have an impact on how you show up with others

✅  The human brain (just a little bit)

Why work with us?

Hi, I am Dr. Debra Dupree, The Mindset Doc.

Our world of work is much more complex on many different levels than ever before!

With nearly 30 years in dispute resolution and a career in working with people in conflict, I work with leaders across disciplines on how to leverage the mindset to work with people from different walks in life.

What you gain when working with me:

  • a new framework (mindset) for looking at conflict
  • proven strategies for working through 'people' differences
  • uncovering the veil of unconscious bias & impact on workplace relationships
  • improved health, wellness, and organizational happiness 

Now, isn't that worth taking some action towards agile living?

Our experience speaks for itself



that we helped to improve their results in mediation by expanding their mindset.



 that now know how to conduct an effective dialogue with their employees when it comes to benefits and accommodations.



 whom we helped polish their skills and knowledge by leveraging their mindset for greater influence.

Our vision & mission

Our vision is to positively and influentially reset and redirect people’s thoughts and perspectives around conflict from something to avoid to an opportunity to learn, grow and improve. 

Our mission is to influence millions of minds worldwide through meaningful engagement and valuable content at your feet on the ground or virtually in the cloud to make a difference in the civility of today's world.

Our purpose is to build authentic connections and personal accountability to thrive with a growth and agile mindset.
