About Debbie Gregory 

People-centred | Practical | Solutions Focused

I have 20+ years experience working as a corporate trainer and coach as well as success within Learning and Development, Organisational Development and Talent Management teams. I’ve spent many years studying and personally applying positive psychology, neuroscience and personality preferences.


I’m often described as positive, down to earth, practical, strategic and solutions focused, but most importantly I like to achieve results around personal change while encouraging people to have fun.

Through focusing on a people-centred approach, Positivedirection has a mission to help New Zealanders and their workplaces change for the better by enabling people to be more self-confident and recognise their own/others potential: growing talent, lifting engagement and leveraging synergies to create future success.


Success Stories

Paul,  The Warehouse Group

I’d highly recommend taking the time to focus on you and your leadership style. Debbie had pragmatic tools and insights that enabled me to unlock untapped potential, leading to improved self-awareness, and getting the best out of my team.

Pratik, Datacom Field Engineer

Her moral support, expert advice on getting back into the job market, and CV and interview preparation really boosted my confidence. Within just over a month I had a new job. I’d recommend her top-notch services to everyone and its well worth it.

New Zealand Blood Service

The MBTI session was fun!  We really benefited from our time with Debbie. It helped increase awareness of self and others and gave insights around leading the team. It was great to learn all about the different personalities across our team.
