I am extremely pleased to provide this reference on Susan, whom I have known for 15 years. This is also an opportunity to acknowledge and thank Susan for the significant role that she has played in my success as a leader as well as my organization's success. All leaders routinely face challenges with change management, internal and external business relationships, team engagement, and creating shareholder value for their organizations. I encourage all leaders to take a very close look at how Susan's coaching and counsel can help achieve unprecedented and sustainable success. Susan's style is inspiring and warm - creating a comfortable environment for team members to "open up" and share perspectives while, simultaneously, challenging all to stretch, look beyond, and create a vision of top-tier success. Setting Susan apart from the rest is her ability to help create a personal and organizational roadmap on achieving one's vision of top-tier success. She is an exceptional listener, knows how to gain participation in group settings and values the contributions of all - no matter how small that contribution may appear. Any leader is only as good as those with whom she or he surrounds themselves and I highly recommend Susan Markham's counsel, wisdom, and style to help you and your team reach success - never before thought possible.
Susan is an amazing coach. She takes the time to really get to know you, understand you, and care for you. She helps you to identify a very clear vision for your future and then implement an approach that brings that vision into the world. I highly recommend Susan and feel so fortunate to have had her as a coach.
From the moment Susan opened the Breakthrough session with our team she held our attention. Our team is distributed around the world; we meet in person only a couple of times per year. Susan made her teaching work for us. Almost a year later, we still hold bi-monthly accountability and integrity team check-ins. I think her direct, honest approach made the lessons stick. She taught with kindness while commanding our personal accountability throughout the training. Susan’s vision for us to be a world class team of professionals was deeply appreciated by all.
Susan consulted with a project team that I lead and helped us all to “see possibility” when most thought there was none. I highly recommend Susan as one to assist individuals, groups, and organizations transform for optimal performance and sustainability. Susan is a masterful consultant.
Her capacity for leadership, her vision for possibility and her innate ability to inspire those around her to be their best are all things I have come to rely on her for. I am grateful for the many interactions I've had with her and the continued support she has offered me through many professional and personal situations. When I talk with Susan, I cannot help but feel encouraged, empowered and excited. Many thanks to someone who has become a dear friend and trusted coach!
