Featured One-on-One Coaching Success

“I have worked with Susan Whipple as both a personal and career coach and was very pleased both with the process and the results. In addition to having an understanding of her profession that is wide, deep, and certified, Susan has the rare ability to coach from a large perspective. While she is great at helping to develop, plan and follow through with goals, objectives and milestones, this is a more common skill. What really sets her apart is her ability to help uncover crucial motivations in the context of lifetime goals that may be 2, 5 or 10 years out (or even longer).

Under Susan’s guidance, I have personally attained large career, relationship and financial goals that I set out in a long term strategic life plan with her.

Susan is a woman with tremendous personal integrity and determination who also understands and has sympathy for the personal foibles and weaknesses that every human has to deal with.”
