Through self-awareness and personal growth, you can separate yourself and become the best version of you!
Amplify your Leadership
Develop your Teams
Acheive Extraordinary Results
You stepped into leadership because you want to make a positive impact. You are driven, ambitious, compassionate, goal-oriented and care deeply about others. You have also experienced some struggles along the way – lack of boundaries, being hard on yourself, not showing up authentically, feeling overwhelmed and searching for clarity.
You desire to amplify your own leadership and guide the people and teams you develop and mentor how to do the same.
I partner with executives and emerging leaders like you who are ready to cultivate their emotional intelligence so they can be the leaders they were born to be - and achieve extraordinary results for themselves and their organizations. Through my unique results-oriented leadership development coaching and training, leaders illuminate their communication and leadership strengths and learn to identify blind spots and the triggers getting in the way of consistent high performance.
You will increase your self-awareness so you show up more powerfully in all areas of your leadership - and develop teams and employees who succeed. From discovering how to spot self-sabotaging self-talk, to shifting from reacting impulsively to stressors, to mindfully responding to real and self-imposed barriers to success, clients develop the mindset and behaviors to excel in critical conversations (e.g., giving and receiving constructive performance feedback, leading in-person and remote teams, and coaching team members). You create capacity for better problem solving, deeper relationships, and sustainable self-care, and develop tools you will apply to future challenges, roles, and opportunities.
Let's tap into your highest & greatest potential!
This is the foundation of leadership skills! Operating on autopilot is no longer acceptable! Being conscious, non-judgmental and totally connected is NOW the role of rockstar leaders, mentors, coaches & founders!

Having worked with numerous coaches in my career, it is such an honor and a pleasure to finally be working with Suzanne. She excels at her craft and weekly leaves me in awe at her skill. Discovering her abilities to call out the pragmatic logistics I so needed, while supporting me as I developed them was a gift. Nonetheless, she simultaneously was hearing what wasn't said, recognized, or valued on my part, (in my delusion that everyone has the same skills I possess since they come so naturally.) As a result, she could and does easily support me in clarifying my vision, my message and my audience. When you are truly ready to fly, she is the gift, and push you need to go further, with more clarity and total confidence into a brighter and more expanded career.

Suzanne is an absolute joy to work with. She has such a masterful facility with the soft skills of understanding people and how to gently move them in the right direction. I know her to be a very conscientious, warm, and engaging coach. I highly recommend working with Suzanne for someone who wants to raise their game in a way that is in alignment with who they are.
Instant rapport! Suzanne is one of those people you immediately feel comfortable with. Her ability to connect makes you feel like she's always been a part of your life and in her line of work, that's a good thing. She's a big vision person with the ability to cut through the clutter and get to the heart of what truly matters. I highly recommend connecting with Suzanne today!
A letter to you my future client.............
I believe all great coaches use Positive Psychology, it doesn't mean they call themselves Positive Psychology practitioners. We work to form trusting relationships, we build a close rapport and we are driven to help clients move forward to achieve a set of purposeful and meaningful goals. We love using our clientsstrengths in each session, making them energized by our work together and experiencing a sense of accomplishment when they succeed.
As Robert Fulghum argued, everything we need to know we learned in kindergarten (share everything, play fair…be aware of wonder). I am going to show you how everything you need to know about coaching (well, almost everything), you can learn from Positive Psychology. I will introduce you to the field of Positive Psychology and the theories and assortment of practices I use to fuel client momentum and drive success. We are going to “learn some and think some…and play and work every day some” (Fulghum).
How I work:
A typical session starts with.....What are three good things that happened in the past 24 hours? What went well? They can be as big as winning a gold medal or as small as getting to a meeting on time. Take 30 seconds to write them down. I’ll wait.
I do this activity at the start of every coaching session, class and most conversations too! This simple activity is at the heart of Positive Psychology: a shift in focus to “what’s working,” and how do we do more of it? instead of “what’s wrong,” and how do we fix it?
While psychology “as usual” concentrates on how to help people get from -5 to 0, Positive Psychology focuses on how to help people flourish and move from 0 to +5. This method also explores what helps the “plus fivers” thrive. Why are happy people happy? What factors contribute to healthy relationships? What are the characteristics of successful teams? How do motivated people stay motivated? You get the point. Positive Psychology provides coaches with the tools for us to help healthy, creative, resourceful people change for the better, and offers us a smorgasbord of research-based activities to keep our clients engaged in the process.
Oh, and by the way, the results of the study that had people write down three good things at the end of each day for just one week (conducted by Martin Seligman, the father of Positive Psychology; Chris Peterson, the great uncle of the movement, and Nansoon Park, a distant cousin), found that participants experienced an increase in happiness and a decrease in depressive symptoms for six months. Six months!! Pretty amazing. Try it and see what you think.
Tool #1 : for those who are really ready to play and work every day!
At the end of the day, write down three good things that happened. Big or small, deep or superficial. Whatever comes to mind. Keep it simple and list only three. Take 60 seconds to replay one good thing, savor it, and ponder why it works.
At the start each session, have your client talk about three good things that happened in the last day, or since the previous session. Keep a log of the items and read them at the end of the week.
