She and her associates have worked in a cross section of sectors including financial services, local government, commercial organisations and extensively in the charity sector. Sue holds qualifications in coaching, mediation and HR. Prior to working in the people function Sue had a successful career as an owner manager of a small chain or retail outlets.
Coaching facilitates learning and growth by helping you to identify and remove the interference that is preventing you from reaching your potential. It is not teaching or advising, it is help with moving on when you feel stuck in a situation and can’t see a way forward.
Mediation is a powerful tool where each party is given the opportunity to explain to the other what is happening for them, the impact of the dispute and what they need to be different.
Conclusions are derived from evidence and decisions made on the balance of probability taking all the evidence into consideration.
The same level of objectivity and skill is required of the appeal chair and depending on the size and resources of an organisation it can be difficult to appoint someone to hear an appeal.
We value honesty, here's what our other clients have to say
"I reached out to Sue for support when I was experiencing a very difficult at issue at work. I was being treated terribly by my organisation, the first time in 40 years of work that I’d experienced this, and I was struggling to make sense of what was happening or how to deal with it. As a seasoned HR professional Sue understood the context immediately and her coaching, empathy and thoroughly human way of supporting me was instrumental in allowing me to emerge from the situation with dignity, with my mental health in tact and confident enough to rethink what I wanted from my career. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sue if you find yourself in a similar situation."
Senior Leader in a National Organisation
"Sue quickly grasped the basis of the case work involved and agreed appropriate terms of reference and plans of action. Her responses throughout were timely, and her personal style along with comprehensive reviews enabled efficient conclusions. Sue delivered within organisational policies and maintained objectivity and confidentiality throughout the processes. We would be happy to invite Sue to work with us again."
