“There are a number of positive thoughts and words that come to mind when thinking of both my personal and professional history with Sue over the last 20 years, but the word I keep coming back to is empathy. While empathy is a terrific trait in a friend, it is also an extremely valuable trait when it comes to business, and Sue has it in spades. Her ability to quickly identify, understand and asses a challenge while placing herself in that person’s mindset and situation is a skill that helps solve problems; quickly and with a strong personal touch. I highly recommend Sue!”

About Sue Ryan

My life passion is to guide you to become your uniquely greatest, leading yourself and others, so you make the positive impact in our world you are committed to. I know each of us is a prodigy. I want you to discover what yours is, live in it, and share your unique gifts to make our world a better place. Coaching and speaking are the career of my passion and I wake up every day excited to have the opportunity to prepare you to know with absolute certainty you are your greatest and live your life authentically from there. I know with absolute certainty this is my calling! What am I all about? When my time here is done, I want my ‘dash’ to be an exclamation point!

My first career was in the business application of technology to global organizations. I learned many things including the value of mutually successful trusted strategic business relationships; each of us focusing on sharing our areas of strength to strengthen the other, honestly engaging even when it is difficult, and being as valuable resource as possible for each other’s success . I lived my philosophy of preparing people to buy and never selling anyone anything and my focus at all times was, and still is, successfully aligning people with solutions so they succeed. My motto is ‘Your success is my success’.

My greatest satisfaction is helping you, the teams you work with, and the organizations you work for, achieve your goals for success. A more tangible measurement from my first career was our clients consistently generating positive performance, collectively recognizing hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue gains and operational efficiency improvements. As a consistently top performer in our company, I led sales teams to deliver record-breaking performance for nearly twenty years.

When I met my husband Jack in 2001, I took a professional sabbatical and we had an amazing time traveling, deepening our faith, and sharing quality time with our family. We call our lives together ‘Our journey of love’. I learned incredibly valuable life lessons during my sabbatical. One is the importance of balance in life. I didn’t meet Jack until I was forty-six. I loved my career and was proud of being a ‘Type A workaholic”, the same way he described himself. The more capacity we had to create balance in our lives, the more we learned about what we are really passionate about in areas of our lives away from work. I am a much better person for having taken a sabbatical!

Another lesson is listening to my inner voice. When I decided to step away, many people cautioned me against it and said it would be harmful to my career. It felt right to step away. When Jack was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2014, our faith journey had prepared us to have massive acceptance of this phase of our journey of love and cherish every moment together. Our journey strengthens my passion to guide you to become your greatest. I don’t want anyone to wake up one day and wish they had discovered their unique prodigy. We are all prodigies and are meant to live our lives from there.

I did say sabbatical. I feel a strong calling to serve others by sharing my professional experience, skills, and personal experience, to inspire you to become your greatest. With my commitment to being my greatest as well, I prepared myself to most successfully leverage my nearly thirty-years of business experience with how to best serve my you in your success. I went to graduate school and earned a master’s in communication with concentrations in digital media and marketing and became a credentialed professional coach in three disciplines. I study professional speaking with National Speakers Association Council of Peers Award of Excellence Hall of Fame speaker, Mikki Williams.

Why does this matter to you? You truly want to be your greatest and you want to be inspired to do whatever it takes for you to get there. When you’re making the changes you know you want to make, so you become your greatest, it’s tempting to want what you can have now. You need to know I’ll be right there every step of your way supporting you because you know I’m every bit as passionate about you becoming your greatest as you are!

I’m passionate our journey together – let’s get started.
