Meet Susan Ireland

Through transformational coaching and business consulting, I help individuals drive transformation to support growth. From promotions to life transitions, I’m here to guide you toward the qualities and behaviors that lead to realizing your potential. 

I bring 30+ years of experience as a director of Business Operations at The Boeing Company. Throughout my career I learned that often dramatic changes to my approach and thinking were needed to reach the next level of my potential. My personal transformation came through aligning my values with my goals. Now, as a certified coach with the International Coach Federation and Invite Change, a Tilt365 Practitioner and trained in Laser coaching, Voice Dialogue and The Empowerment Dynamic TED*, my aim is to support your transformation so you can achieve your potential and your goals through a practical, thought-provoking, results-driven process.

I’m no stranger to difficult transitions like retirement, divorce and profound loss, and all these challenges helped me learn how to navigate these difficult life moments. Now, I’m here to listen, draw out the subtleties of your story, and guide you toward outcomes you never expected but always hoped to find. 

I honor you as the expert in your life, and can’t wait to collaborate and help you grow into your potential.

It’s time to find new ground and create what you want next.

I'm ready to Connect!

Deliberately choose the life you want.
Discover the tools to get there.

Everyone has a right to be seen and listened to. Now it’s your turn.

As an experienced and inspiring wayfinder, I will guide you in the direction of your dreams so you can transform the life, career or business you’re ready to grow. Together, we’ll journey through a unique coaching plan that’s practical, grounded and tailored to you.

Through one-on-one coaching, you’ll unearth your unique value and discover an awareness of yourself that leads to exciting new career directions and near-infinite possibilities.

Gain clarity. Find focus. Take action for growth.


As your coach and guide, I will help you discover clarity about what you really want and take the steps to achieve it. You’ll come away with a renewed awareness of your values, priorities and long-term goals while opening up to the freedom to pursue your passions and leave a unique legacy.

Career Coaching

Whether you’re seeking a new role or simply growing into your existing one, I coach professionals of all kinds to discover their value and use their unique skills to cultivate success.

Leadership Coaching 

I partner with executive leaders and business owners to work through challenges and transform learnings into concrete business results. Together we will amplify your positive impact – while allowing you to live the life you want. I developed my skills primarily at Boeing Commercial Airplanes as a leader in program management and business operations. I am an expert in leading integration and alignment across organizations, suppliers, and geographic locations through effective and efficient management systems.

Transition Coaching

Careers go through growth and change, but we rarely embrace the possibilities that come with new job titles and responsibilities. It’s time to accelerate your results and reach your potential.

Life Coaching

Life has a way of presenting challenges, but when we reframe these moments as opportunities for transformation, all possibilities are available to you. With decades of experience in life’s most intense transitions, I’ll serve as your guide to dramatic change.

Even when you’re a successful business owner, knowing when to take a vacation, developing operational standards that truly work for you and finding the right support can be a challenge. 

As a business consultant, I provide strategic, action-oriented mentorship rooted in decades of executive corporate leadership to help my clients get results. Together, we will clarify your business plan and purpose, develop an operating plan that keeps your mission and vision in mind and deliver on an implementation plan that takes your business to the next level.

Through a combination of coaching and expert business operations consulting, we’ll develop a plan to find competent help, build an exit strategy, expand the business or simply help you experience clarity and finally feel in control of your business.

Let’s create a success plan for your business.

"I support entrepreneurs to change from stresspreneurs to chillpreneurs by giving seminars, 1:1 coachings and leading a mastermind group. Before working with Susan, I did not dare to be vulnerable or to 'go extreme' by making my standpoint as clear as possible. My challenge was to act clearly but at the same time not to be too demanding. With her decades of experience, she showed me how to better communicate with my group members. My way of leading changed to a more advanced and better form - thanks to Susan!"
