Searching for inspiration

I was looking for a great career coach. I was referred to Sue Ann through a gentleman who had invited her to speak on a panel at a mid-career opportunities forum. This gentleman spoke so highly of Sue Ann that I was intrigued. I contacted her and felt very good about her ability to provide the appropriate insight to help me personalize my search.

My experience working with Sue Ann has been more than rewarding. The best part of Sue Ann's work is her ability to inspire.

A great listener

Changing the way you think

Sue Ann’s help in positive reinforcement turned to be indispensable during my time as a MBA student/candidate. I was so blown away by Sue Ann’s phenomenal insight into the laws of the mind- how to remain focused in times of stress. I have always been an upbeat and cheerful person, but seemed to always lack the confidence and guts to tackle my dreams. Now I know why!! Sue Ann helped me re-program my way of thinking and to ignore the insecurities that were getting in my way of accomplishing goals.

Keynote Speaker

There is no other way to say it….Sue Ann Gonis literally saved our conference. After several cancellations from other confirmed keynote speakers, we were left in a lurch 4 days before our event was to take place. 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.

Listening skills

Sue Ann is a natural leader. The good kind – a grounded, confident leader that knows how to listen. She sees the potential in others and flat out insists that they reach this potential. It is almost as if, upon realizing a person’s potential, she says ” It is no longer good enough for you to try, you have to do this. This is your calling”. And so with encouragement and support, she allows people to do something they didn’t think they could do.
