Susan was recognized for her contributions in this area when Providence Business News named her 2008 Business Woman Ally/Mentor of the Year. When asked what leadership is, Susan replies, “Leadership is about using the greatness in you to achieve and sustain extraordinary outcomes by engaging the greatness in others.”

She has advised women leaders in Alcatel-Lucent, Amgen, Digitas, GTECH, HP, IPG, Kimberly-Clark, MassMutual, MFS, NYLife, Pfizer, Sodexo, Turner Construction and many others how to use their strengths to leverage relationships, achieve strategic goals and lead for value creation.

Her articles have been translated into Spanish, French and German. She has studied riding “from the horse’s point” of view under Harry Whitney and equine biomechanics with Dr. Deb Bennett. Drawing on the leadership lessons that can come “straight from the horse’s mouth,” Susan created “Pioneering Leadership” and “Can You Lead a Horse to Water?” Both workshops use work with horses for teaching women essential lessons about leadership.

Susan is the author of two other books. Build Your Career — a guide for using the job you have to get the job you want — was featured in Money magazine and hailed as “a comprehensive guide for charting your career.” Her Make Room for JOY! has been described as “heartware and software for the soul.” Susan works, writes, rides, practices yoga and raised her son on the Rhode Island shore.
