Client Feedback – Suzanne Lines
Effective working relationships
“Effective working relationships don’t always just happen as a matter of course and when they misfire or go wrong, the temptation for many is either to ditch the relationship and bring someone else in or just carry on and hope for the best. Both approaches can be extremely wasteful and costly, particularly for a small or medium sized firm. Hiring Suzanne Lines is a very low risk and effective alternative.”
Empathy, Expertise, Safety, Self Awareness
“Suzanne Lines is exceptional on the above four levels: Conversations with her feel safe with minimal risk of blowing up or making the situation worse. She communicates with great empathy and is expert in leading people to a new state of self awareness. Suzanne uses conceptual frameworks to good effect but unlike other consultants or coaches she doesn’t push them or try to shoe horn you into one favoured framework.”
Suzanne Lines creates an environment and space where difficult conversations and challenge can occur
“Suzanne Lines is able to create an environment and space where difficult conversations and challenge can occur without anyone leaving feeling negative. I believe this is critical to the success of any work of this nature – people often think or say they need help with strategic planning or change management, but stripping it back, the genuine barriers are often centred around communication and open dialogue.”
