Susan has been a valuable contributor to the US Agency for International Development (USAID) Global Health Professional and Organizational Development (GHPOD) program for many years. She is one of our favored “go to” facilitators when the client is political or high-level or disorganized. She gets the job done right, on time and within budget. GHPOD sent Susan to the Democratic Republic of Congo for an organizational development activity. Client feedback—as expected—noted that she was “very organized, easy to work with, flexible, and really good at meeting client needs.” She is a great team player—and all of us at GHPOD appreciate that she is on our team!

Susan is both skilled, kind, considerate, and extremely reliable. She exemplifies what it means to be a true team player.

Susan has a fantastic approach to management training that I have not experienced anywhere else. She keeps you engaged with hands-on exercises so you stay focused. She has led management training for us on a variety of topics such as conflict resolution, performance reviews, motivating staff, conducting difficult conversations, delegating, managing change, dealing with social media, managing across generations, and communication skills. I would recommend Susan for any organization looking to expand the knowledge of their seasoned managers, as well as first-time managers.

We accomplished a number of projects identified at the retreat, with our office taking the lead.

Susan has an uncanny ability to read situations and personalities. She is a great listener and she is able to discern the deeper issues that may be masked by more obvious surface cues. She was able to engage personnel that have remained aloof from all such previous efforts. Six months later, my office still talks of this retreat and Susan’s effectiveness dissecting issues and providing insight where we were too close to see other possibilities. The office coalesced as a result of the retreat and this would not have happened without Susan’s participation.

Management Concepts typically has excellent trainers, and Susan is at the top of that list. Taking a few hours out of our day for a mandatory training can seem like a chore. However, within a few minutes, it was clear that this class was going to be a valuable learning experience. Susan was very knowledgeable which made her credible and the lectures enjoyable. She was one of the best instructors I’ve had in any field of training.

Working with Susan for several years, I find her to be an exceptional and flexible facilitator able to successfully bring together a leadership experience and reflection through a seminar designed for new managers to support their success in our complex and changing business environment.
