Hi, I'm Susan. My style of business coaching offers you perspective, human understanding, and creative ideas. I offer you the opportunity to find sustainable solutions to business or work problems. We take a step back. We understand the problem and the people. And then we solve. Innovation is not just for startups. It's looking at what's not working and finding a better way.
"Success is getting what you want. Happiness is wanting what you get." Dale Carnegie
I have a unique background that allows me to find that sweet spot between the business needs and the human needs. I have an MSc in Business Psychology and a Diploma in Coaching Psychology. And I've worked for 10 years as a chartered accountant, analyst, and senior manager in varied roles across industry. I've initiated and led change, designed and built process innovations, and managed projects, teams, and stakeholder relationships. My research is on thriving in the workplace (awaiting publication) and I also write about authenticity and the self (link on my website).
I've trained in self development and mindfulness and I love integrating these elements into my work. I use a blend of positive psychology, cognitive-behavioural, and acceptance-commitment tools. I've used these tools myself in my own personal and professional journey and I'm very willing to share my learnings. I learn something new every day!
My philosophy is simple. Be open, build trust, and be surprised. Transformation happens when we're curious and playful. We laugh. We share. And we build connection. We learn from each other.
