Coaching is often used as an executive intervention to help executives transform their organizations, increase their impact and influence, and develop as leaders.
Executives, managers, supervisors and team leaders find that they must guide and lead their people and projects with little or no preparation or support. In many organizations politics guide a leader’s decisions and actions more than vision or strategy. Business leaders thrive in the action-based, commitment-oriented partnership that coaching provides.

“Suzi’s insight, methods of engagement and ability to bring out the best in everyone she coaches truly distinguishes her in the consultant world. She has been instrumental in promoting synergy within our Legal teams and developing our legal personnel, some of whom have been risk adverse and very resistant to any proposed change. I would not hesitate, and would, indeed, encourage you, to contract Suzi for any proposed project.”
Program Director, NIH
"The value of your coaching is that you create an environment that allows me to be completely honest and voice my concerns and fears. You provide strategies rather than instructions. I am much more productive and efficient and happy at work because of you. On a scale of one to 10 with 10 being the best… I place this as a 10."
"Suzi is a wonderful resource -- a seasoned and trusted business advisor . I value her insights and perspectives and especially appreciate her ability to simplify complex and at times esoteric concepts in a way that facilitates communication and sales."

"I have had the good fortune to work with Suzi Pomerantz in my professional work environment, as well as personally. As Vice President for Public Affairs for Goodwill Industries International, I watched as Suzy gave voice to the needs and aspiration of our staff. I can truly say that, as a result of Suzi's good work, morale increased as evidenced by follow-up surveys with our employees."
"For me, the value of coaching was better self-knowledge and insight. Specifically, I learned more about my strengths and what I bring to the table. I also learned strategies to deal with what I feel is the very “hands-on” management style of my boss. I learned how to better follow through on assignments that I give to people, and be sure that they understand the task and know the steps to take."
CEO, Harmony Coaching & Consulting
