The Washington Group

I understand. Planning appropriate business strategy is not easy. Your business has its own complex challenges that make it hard to fit into a one­-size­-fits­-all process. You need something unique, created just for you.

If you are serious about achieving clarity on the things that matter most, you need a customized approach.

Susan Washington has collaborated with hundreds of business owners and executives to find the perfect methodology to get clear, keep motivated and implement incremental shifts that lead to lasting change.

I readily refer Susan at the drop of her name and have had others come back to me with glowing reviews of her work. Susan shines at what she does!

I hired Susan at the most perfect time. I had just left a long and lucrative career in sales and found myself in a harder than expected transition period. She provided the direction, guidance and encouragement that I was looking for to get me clear on my path. Susan helped me lay a solid framework for my new business so that I could prioritize, plan and get into action. She has helped me tremendously, not only with my career path, but also with personal issues and relationships and I feel very fortunate to have her on my side.

Meeting Susan has been life changing. She is not only a knowledgeable and amazing mentor and coach, she is also an incredible human being. It’s hard to put into words how grateful I am for the work we do together. What I have learned from my sessions with Susan has given me -among many things- the clarity and confidence to start a successful business, in a field that I love and that completely aligns with my values. That’s something I know for a fact I could have never gotten in a classroom. If you are seeking to make meaningful changes in your life, and are willing to do the footwork, I cannot recommend enough you invest in Susan’s programs.  I warn you, though, to prepare yourself to become successful at what you set your heart to do!

Each coaching session with Susan is filled with meaning, insight, and action-oriented steps that move me forward.  Investing in my personal evolution with Susan has been the greatest gift I’ve ever given myself.

I’ve worked with Susan as a Professional Coach in the past on a regular basis and she had such amazing insight and skills that today I use over and over again. She always thinks outside the box and helped me to see things I was doing that didn’t necessarily serve me well and try and shift them to a better place.

I would highly recommend Susan as a Life Coach to anyone and everyone as she has changed my life for the better and I would love to see that happen for other people as well.

Susan’s been an amazing resource for me. She’s walked me through some massive transitions in my life over the last 5 years, both personally and professionally. She brings so much of herself to her job. It’s obvious she loves what she does, and lives the ideas and principles she passes on. That integrity has been really inspiring for me. I always tell people how I feel after I leave a session with her; I’ve walked into some sessions a complete mess. And I always walk out feeling stronger, more aware, and more in control of my life. I have recommended Susan to many friends over the years. I can’t think of anyone I’d rather ask for guidance when I’m feeling lost and wondering what the next steps should be, or if I’m looking to kick things up and take action to improve my life. Susan’s an awesome, energetic, positive person. She’s got a powerful gift for helping and guiding people, and I’m grateful she’s on my team.

My business has taken a direction that I didn’t even consider when I first started working with Susan. In fact it did a complete 360. She saw something in me that I didn’t know was there!

She’s helped me bring clarity, focus, consistency and confidence into my life which translates over to my business. She’s an amazing resource for conscious entrepreneurs in this city and is dedicated to her clients.
She’s a rich source of insight, knowledge and wisdom.

I always look forward to my meetings with Susan. At the beginning of a strategy session, I’m not always clear on what I need support with. But it seems that within minutes she’s able to draw insight and focus out of me by asking the right questions and really listening. I leave every session with clarity, an attainable plan and a sense of excitement.

Since working with Susan I’ve implemented a few simple, effective and powerful tools that have improved the quality of my life and taken my business from an idea to something that I love doing and is improving the lives of others.

Over the past five years Susan has coached me both  professionally and personally. She helped me organize myself when I landed in a new role with more responsibility, allowing me to achieve ease in the work flow and successful outcomes for the company. Later she guided me through the decision making process to come to a clear choice about leaving this role for an entrepreneurial opportunity and then supported me as required in my new situation. Her goal setting and accountability have resulted in my taking on new challenges professionally, physically and personally, with results that I never thought possible. During this time she has become a great friend as well!

Susan is my secret weapon. She has been invaluable in helping me to gain clarity with my goals and set about achieving them.

I was looking for advice in improving my career growth when I initially engaged Susan’s help. I saw immediate positive results in my interactions that ranged from difficult conversations, relationship management to personal value.

Susan has also guided me in achieving life and relationship goals in a journey that has taken me from Vancouver to New York to London.

If you’re the type of person who is always looking to learn and grow, I would wholeheartedly recommend Susan’s services.
