Who Can Benefit from Coaching?

Life Coaching

Life coaching is a wonderful tool for anyone who wants to take control of his or her life.

It's for you if you're:

  • In transition -- or wanting to make any kind of important change
  • Trying to better manage your time or money
  • Trying to balance work and family
  • Wanting to be a better parent and still have time for yourself
  • Trying to figure out what's next now that your kids are off to college or established in their adult lives
  • Trying to get past a creative block

What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a powerful partnership designed to enhance and forward your lifelong process of learning, effectiveness, and fulfillment.

It is a tool to help you clarify what is most important to you, see your choices and support you in moving into action and accomplishing your goals more quickly and effectively.

It’s about allowing yourself to dream big and then together we make it happen!

Coaching requires the courage to take a hard, honest look at what is and isn’t working in your life. As your life coach, I will help you see all your possibilities -- and help you make them happen now.

Coaching is not therapy, counseling or consulting. But having been a therapist and business consultant, and having run my own business, I have the experience, training, empathy, and commitment to support you in reaching your goals.

Life coaching looks to the present and the future, helping you determine where you are, where you want to go, and how best to get there!

Listen to what others have said about coaching with me:

“Susan is an expert at asking the right questions – ones that prompt you to think deeply and to see solutions that might not have occurred to you before. She is always supportive but also pushes you to stay true to your own goals. At the end of every coaching session I feel energized and the fact that I always have a few concrete steps to take towards my goal is empowering. Susan has a wealth of experience, a positive attitude, and a great sense of humor, all of which contribute to making her an effective coach. She is exactly the kind of person you want in your corner.”

Leah B.,
Middle School Teacher and Literacy Coordinator,
Boston, MA.

“Susan is a wonderful coach and a wonderful human being.  What I love is how Susan creates a sense of emotional safety that helps me get in touch with who I am and what gives me joy in life.  She helped me gain the courage to take the scary steps I needed to take to move forward with my life.  She has made a tremendous difference in my life, and I continue to expand and grow through her guidance.  I can't thank her enough.”

Debbie P.,
Financial Planner

Executive and Leadership Coaching

It’s a Challenging Environment for Leaders today. Organizations today – and their members at all levels – find themselves in what has been called “Permanent Whitewater”.  One challenge merges into the next, providing you with little time to adjust, to think through an effective response, or reflect on the meaning of the events around you. This is where executive and leadership coaching can help. An executive coach provides you with a powerful tool to enable you to take that time to evaluate, to strategically plan to implement an effective response and necessary change in your organization. 

First used by organizations to develop executive leaders, executive coaching has now expanded to include team development, organizational change and growth, as well as personal growth and development for leaders at all levels of the organization.
Executive coaching is a tool – it helps people clarify what is most important, set achievable goals and benchmarks, take action, and move rapidly toward accomplishing those goals.

Executive and Leadership Coaching is Indispensable. Using an executive coach has shown itself to be invaluable as a tool for organizations of all kinds to develop leaders at all levels.  Executive Coaching can be an instrument of organizational change or a support for your individual leadership development.

I use structured conversations, guided exercises, feedback, as well as assessment tools to evaluate your needs and challenges, and to measure your progress. More than anything else, I can provide a trusted ally in creating the kind of professional development or organization you desire.

Workplaces can be places of growth, excitement and collaboration.  Executive coaching can provide substantial return on investment (ROI) for you and your employees.

Listen to what others have said about coaching with me:

“Susan Braverman has been my Executive Coach for a little over two years. As a new Executive Director, I was faced with multiple organizational challenges. Susan and I ... immediately established a professional relationship of trust which allowed me the freedom to truly express concerns and uncover opportunities for individual improvement in a wide variety of personal and professional areas. I am confident that our coaching relationship affords me the opportunity to maximize the direct contribution to the business success of my organization. Lastly, executive coaching has played an important role in helping to shape and hone in on my talents and abilities around developing new leadership skills.”

Dawn Carter, Executive Director,
United Cerebral Palsy of Washington DC & Northern VA.

"Susan Braverman was exactly what I needed in an experienced executive coach. A good coach is like a mirror, giving you an opportunity for reflection on the man in the mirror. Applying a good humored yet probing style, Susan caused me to reexamine the basic assumptions which have guided me throughout my working life. She helped me develop strategies that have enabled me to better lead in a time of organizational change, to better address workplace bullies who drive down productivity, and to communicate more effectively. Thanks to Susan, I am pursuing my career with a new found energy that has made me a stronger and more effective leader. Everybody can benefit from coaching, but only the lucky ones will find a coach as strong and as easy to work with as Susan Braverman."
