121 Executive Coaching

We have run Masterclasses, Team development and Leadership development programmes for entire teams, staff groups, managers, through to senior leaders and boards. Some of the challenges and outcomes our clients have worked with us to achieve include raising performance with high wellbeing despite stressful change and uncertainty, gain clarity and focus, raise engagement, raise resilience, raise confidence, raise morale and nurture a positive culture.

A tailored keynote talk

about Dr Sue Mitchell


“As a scientist, I was trained to take the person out of everything, to focus on the science and the task to get properly objective results.

However, over the years, I’ve come to realise that no matter what discipline or sector you work in, you can only be your best and inspire high performance (for yourself and others) when you put the person into everything. I help you do this through nurturing inner sustainability: a mindset approach to self-leadership and leading others that gives you tools to raise wellbeing, engagement AND performance.”

I strongly recommend Dr. Sue Mitchell’s talk “Leading through times of uncertainty and change” – the sailing analogy resonated extremely well with the audience of our regional leadership team and the authentic, practical and engaging leadership guidance stuck with them. More than 8 months later, the topic is more relevant than ever. Hearing our leaders recalling the concepts and messages when faced with current changes and uncertainty is the best evidence that Sue’s inspirational talk had impact and left our leaders with content and experience we can lean on.


Dagmar Smith Executive Director Human Resources, Gilead Sciences

Sue’s been working with me to deliver a variety of people-development projects and programmes since around 2010. Sue has consistently delivered and always in a highly positive and personable way. I trust Sue to do a great job of whatever she is working on. Her dedication and enthusiasm shines – and this brings her knowledge to life! If you are looking to develop your employees, I strongly recommend a conversation with Sue.


Lorna Prince Organisation Development Partner, Stirling University - Now Heriot Watt Univeristy 2023

I have the pleasure of knowing Dr Sue Mitchell over a period of years now. Building Resilience and mental toughness was a topic very well received at one of our WiBF events and Sue had some 20 business women up on their feet in no time, interacting and enjoying every moment. Her 4Cs on the High Seas still resonates with me and keeps me sane when change and uncertainty threatens to overwhelm.
Working one to one with Sue, I found her style professional, her suggestions substantiated and she challenged my limiting beliefs, helping me to think in different ways.
As part of one of our leadership programmes at work, we offered our senior managers her book The Authority Guide to Engaging Your People, a concise little book that contains so much good information and addresses the right issues for any leader.
What can I say - Sue has impressed me at all levels, as an author, a facilitator, an executive coach. I would recommend having a conversation with Sue to anyone interested in mental toughness, concerned about raising performance and wellbeing of their staff or wanting to know more about how to lead through change and uncertainty. A class act!


Athena McEwan BNP Paribas

I have been fortunate enough to attend Sue's workshops numerous time now and I always find her mix of theory and personal application to be completely relatable and relevant to the challenges I face. Her inclusive approach makes sessions very interactive and easy to consider key points in light of your own individual circumstances.
I was struggling to formulate my 12 month career plan without getting a knot of fear in my stomach but after just one session with Sue I was able to change my perception and I now have a very solid plan. I thoroughly recommend connecting with Sue for help with any mindset, personal or career barriers, the results you get are great.


Vicky Zuiderent Director and Co-Founder at Vilo Sky

“Where to start – first thing, see new title below!! I have been promoted and given a pay rise which was entirely down to you giving me the confidence and the tools to raise the issue. You also helped me recognise where boundaries were being crossed and not respected and to stand up for what is important to me. You were very impressive and I always came away feeling motivated – you were very natural to talk to and it really boosted my confidence and morale.”
