Suzanne is a high powered Coach that has both the ability and acumen to bring about effective Leadership:
“I am fortunate enough to have held several positions, through to Operations Manager where I experienced most aspects of a business environment with all the challenges individuals face. I am best at asking the difficult questions and challenging, in a good way; this is necessary in order to have breakthroughs that elicit real results and lasting change.”
There is not much that can replace corporate experience in ever changing business environments. Compounded by her passion for learning, whether it be in-depth studies in leadership, psychology, or leadership methods, you have a highly unique Coach with the experience, tutelage and the ability to execute.
“…There are no quick fixes to life’s many, often messy questions, for this reason the only effective way to work with my clients is over a longer period time to ensure change and lasting results.”
Suzanne uses a form of coaching called Catalyst Coaching© which combines coaching according to ICF’s core competencies with NLP, Neuro Linquistic Programming, ie. how the language and the words we use affect our behavior.
Suzanne’s main goal is to create awareness about the difference between being a manager and being a leader. The primary task of a leader is to develop more leaders. Besides results, a great leader is therefore also concerned with his employee’s well-being, inspiring them to take control, promoting autonomy and infusing them with a sense of responsibility and accountability, which in turns allows all to flourish.
In addition, The Way Upp® focuses on relevant challenges in the company and creates lasting results through specific goals that integrate the individual, leadership and business.
“I imagine a world where organisations are willing to do everything possible to create a culture in which everyone – not just those few with obvious potential – are given permission and space to become aware of and acknowledge their own internal challenges and barriers. A culture where mistakes and vulnerabilities are not regarded as weakness, but seen as a strength and used as a catalyst for personal and company growth.”
“I was once a female Middle Manager myself, who aspired to earn a higher position. I understand the Good Girl syndrome and needed to learn how to be more assertive, or less assertive and to communicate and delegate with confidence.”
“I specialise in building training’s for, and coaching top executives, teams and individuals resulting in more responsible and personal leadership. The benefits are a more connected, happier and effective relationship with your environment at work and at home.”
“Having undergone deep transformation myself I understand what it takes to create a life that I never thought was possible only 7 years ago, through hard work, dedication and perseverance.”
“Happy, Peaceful, Connected, Joyful”
