Speaking and Workshops

I Would Love to Join You at Your Next Event

I am passionate about bringing life messages alive for my clients and audiences.  With almost 4 decades of teaching, coaching, research, and leadership experience, I have mastered the art of helping my audiences find the "do-able" parts of even the most difficult inner work.


How to Be a Successful Loser:

Learn the Secret of Moving Forward Faster after Loss  


Click here for more information about this talk.

Offered in three formats: Talks of 20-30 minutes or 45-60 minutes; Mini-Workshop (2-2.5 hrs)

In this talk, we explore loss and grief and dive into three types of “losers:” scared, striving, and successful.  Participants will identify their loss type tendencies and explore the consequences those loss strategies have on their short- and long-term success.


The Other Side of Loss:

How to Stop Saying Ridiculous Things to People Who Have Suffered Heartbreaking Loss


Offered in three formats: Talks of 20-30 minutes or 45-60 minutes; Mini-Workshop (2-2.5 hrs)

In this talk, we will discuss the impact OPL - Other Peoples’ Loss - has on the emotions we experience and express and how limiting our own feelings can cause us to say the most ridiculous things to people who are hurting.  Participants learn why being aware of their own loss-within-a-loss will help them be more compassionate with their beloved “losers” and more able to take care of themselves through the grief process.


Resolutions that Stick:

Creating Success from the Inside Out


Offered as a full-day (or two 2.5 hour sessions) workshop

Living life trying to accommodate to OPS (Other Peoples’ Stuff) is a sure-fire way to end up with dead dreams and an unhappy, stuck life.   In this workshop, we will examine two approaches to life: Hard Work and Heart Work.  Participants will learn that Hard Work is characterized by the RIP strategy – Repress, Ignore, and Pretend.   Heart Work, on the other hand, emanates from our passion and heart’s desire. Participants will explore their values and desires and create a plan to accomplish a current dream based on Heart Work. 

Note: Other talks and workshops can be created around your organization’s needs.

How to Be a Successful Loser

Rarely does someone lead me to the edge of my comfort zone. Not only does Susan confidently take me to the edge, she has me face the darkness, then helps me open my eyes so I can see what was once hidden. It's completely uncomfortable and entirely necessary for me to connect with my personal history and story.

Dawn Nocera

Luminary Coach and Author, USA

Susan has a unique ability to see and understand the self-imposed limitations that prevent people from achieving their very best in their personal lives and careers. With compassion and empathy, she challenges her clients to take on their lives and not accept excuses that keep them from moving forward. She is a truly gifted life coach, mentor and teacher.
