Susan Ireland meeting with someone

Who i work with

My coaching services are best for unique, creative people who want to make a difference and are motivated to find what’s next, in work and life. While my offerings are beneficial for leaders, business owners, and executives, I also mentor individuals through life’s most intense transitions, from career changes to divorce.

No matter where they are in life right now, my clients are driven by their dreams. They are smart, motivated, and excited about life — or want to once again be excited by their life and possibilities. They see the growth that comes out of challenge and aren’t afraid to spend time discovering what new ground they want to cover next. No matter what life throws at them, my clients are curious, goal-oriented, open, driven, and motivated.

"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!"
