Executive & Leadership Coaching


My executive coaching process is based upon Marshall Goldsmith’s world recognized philosophy and methodologies. In addition, I incorporate my experiences as a business executive, business owner, and years of education.

My distinctive approach involves:

  • Helping you understand your most important development areas.
  • Involving stakeholders in the process of change.
  • Developing actions steps that will lead to the right improvement.
  • Use assessments to measure improvement.
  • Sustaining change.

“There is no other way to say it…
Sue Ann Gonis literally saved our conference. With high-level executives and customers traveling to our event, we needed not only a great keynote speaker, but someone who had some valuable content to deliver. Sue Ann came through on both counts – a consummate professional who commanded the room of 200+ corporate CEO’s and executives and presented new and compelling research in leadership that no one had ever heard. Imagine my delight when an attendee listening beside me turned to me and said “that presentation just made this whole trip worthwhile.” Our entire team is indebted to Sue Ann for saving our conference keynote, and ensuring our attendees will return next year..”
