Executive Coaching Services For Talented  Individuals and Teams

I believe that executive coaching and mentoring is one of the most powerful ways to increase both individuals’ and teams’ capacity to learn, to generate creativity and to bring about purposeful change and action. Done right, it seamlessly leads to enhanced morale and motivation, increased employee engagement and improved productivity.

I have experience in supporting, guiding and even challenging people and teams at all levels, including:

  • Newly appointed leaders
  • Board Members
  • Emerging talent
  • Individuals or teams facing work performance issues
  • Individuals returning to work after maternity/paternity leave or a career break

I specialise in mentoring and developing exceptional talent, helping individuals develop a growth mindset, improve their emotional intelligence and build resilience. I use my own wide and varied experience and a variety of tools ranging from NLP to psychometrics. Expect thought-provoking ideas, challenges to the status quo, battle-tested HR advice, friendly reassurance and a total commitment to getting the desired results.

I have coached people on an individual and team basis, to assess the current situation and the skills or changes required to go forward, to set goals, to develop ground rules for effective team working and handling conflict.

  • Career planning
  • Return to work coaching,
  • Stress management, wellbeing and resilience building,
  • Confidence building,
  • Increasing emotional intelligence
  • Finding life purpose.

Suzanne was able to challenge me to remove my own barriers – question myself as to why my aspirations sat in my comfort zone and why I limit my own possibility.

Facilitation Services

As a Facilitator, my role is to help individuals and groups understand their common objectives and assist them in planning how to achieve these objectives. As a neutral party, I bring my facilitation skills, experience and understanding to the process, guiding people to overcome conflict, move past challenges and work together in synergy.

Sounds simple right?

I am a creative and experienced trainer and facilitator, skilled at developing and delivering engaging content in an inspiring fashion and designing and running successful meetings and workshops. I work with individuals and teams ranging from senior management, first line managers, emerging leaders and women’s groups.

It is no longer acceptable for leaders to act autocratically and expect their staff to just follow instructions; you need to earn the right to lead.

As a leader, you need to be able to inspire people and create followers. I can help your senior talent develop the essential skills required to be modern leaders, enabling them and their teams to thrive and your business to grow.

Programmes can include:

  • Leadership Coaching
  • Developmental Coaching
  • Female development programmes, coaching and workshops
  • Accelerating Leadership Transition, developing 30, 60 and 90 day plans
  • Emotional Intelligence (EQi) and/or 360 Degree Feedback
  • Workshop Facilitation

To find out more about the range of bespoke training programmes I offer, contact me at suzanne@suzannemountain.com or call: 07988 031704.

I am also available for speaking events.

The management development programme designed and run by Suzanne was, without doubt, the best programme I have ever attended. Suzanne is a true natural in the classroom with a lovely relaxed style and a warm sense of humour. The lessons learnt and put into practice have stayed with me over the years.
