“Executive leadership is demanding, tough and time consuming. And while there is ‘never enough time’, it is my personal belief that a professional who chooses to no longer make time for their own learning and development is accepting the potential skill obsolescence that decision brings. During the time as my coach, Sue Schade assisted me in identifying the areas of development that were most relevant to both success in my current role and in direct alignment with the broader vision I have for my career. She challenged me to ask hard questions about this vision that resulted in a practical and targeted focus to my development efforts. Additionally, knowing that Sue could directly relate to the daily politics and pressures of my role added tremendous credibility to the guidance she provided me.”
