ServicesCustomized solutions to fit your needs.
We approach engagements to:
- • Understand the clients’ goals and values – what is the most important change for you?
- • Develop a plan and timeline that aligns with those goals and values, enabling systemic impact and being attentive to the client’s capacity to learn.
- • Check in during the process to see what’s shifted and adjust the plan as needed.
- • Conclude the engagement with insights and action commitments to sustain positive results.
Leadership is the effectiveness of living systems of relationships and does not depend on an individual heroic leader but rather in leadership practices embedded in a system of interdependencies at different levels within the organization. (Fletcher and Kaufman, 2003). Everyone is a leader in some capacity. And we can all use some help figuring out how to be our best leader selves. Partnering with the client and the organization, we follow a three-pronged approach to coaching:
- • What’s Up? (Wassup? If you are from Philly)
- • What Matters?
- • What’s Next?
We are skilled in administering assessments to increase self-awareness and extend leadership agility through improved relationships and team building. As needed, we will incorporate appropriate assessment tools into the coaching or consulting engagement. We are certified in the following:
- • Hogan Leadership Forecast Series and Hogan 360
- • KornFerry Leadership Architect & Voices 360
- • Neethling Brain Instrument
- • eq-I 2.0 and the EQ360 and TESI
Sue helped me progress in my new role. I wanted to challenge my team to see what we would look like in 10 years. Sue partnered with me to think and act differently and helped me to empower my team so they could work through the details on how we get to the future. They took ownership, drove the actions and we came up with a great plan. Sue was really instrumental in helping me roll that strategy out successfully.

- • Reinforce: interview follow-up and salary negotiation, onboarding success
Sue was my coach during a pivotal year for me—I’d just left a beloved job of 14 years to pursue a new line of work. It was a job I’d long wanted to do, but I wasn’t sure the best way to navigate the business end of a creative career. Sue gave me the guidance and perspective to make the most of that year, and the tools to flourish once we no longer met weekly. Thanks to Sue, I’m more confident managing my business, and I often think, “What would Sue suggest?” or “How would Sue have me prepare?” She taught me to see opportunities that I might have missed; she was consistently a solid sounding board and has a good sense of humor to boot. I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone who’s going through a career transition.
