About Your Coach Trainers

Susan Sussman M.Ed.

  • Master Certified Coach, International Coach Federation
  • M.Ed., Temple University, Educational Psychology

Susan Sussman has been a coach since coaching became a professional discipline: she served on every committee that established the International Coach Federation (ICF), was among the first group of coaches credentialed by the ICF, was an ICF assessor of credentialing applicants for over 10 years, and was a founding member of the Philadelphia Area Coaches Alliance.

Susan has been coaching for more than 25 years and training coaches for over 20 years. She worked tirelessly helping to put the field of coaching on the map by writing, speaking and, through her training programs, assisting hundreds of coaches launch their own careers. Susan is passionate about providing the highest quality coach training and has trained coaches all over the world. She has coached hundreds of clients and has trained hundreds more aspiring coaches.

Given only one phrase to describe Susan's theoretical or conceptual approach to coaching, she would describe it as Character Coaching. In all realms of coaching (e.g., business, executive, or life coaching) the bottom line is always about character, how we show up and interact with each other and the world.  Whether we’re talking about organizational and business leaders, professionals, or individuals in all walks of life, people’s character determines their level of success.

Susan develops the ability of clients and participants to see things from new perspectives; to work holistically from mind, body and heart; and to move back and forth between the big picture and the details. This approach allows us to challenge our foundational assumptions and beliefs about people and the way the world works and therefore allows us to take new actions and explore new possibilities.

Susan is an active mentor coach who assists clients to successfully become credentialed by ICF. She lives in Lafayette Hill, PA with her dog, Chloe, and her parrot, Peanut. She has 2 children and 3 grandchildren.
