Good leaders make people feel that they’re at the very heart of things, not at the periphery.

- Warren Bennis

My name is Susan Gilell-Stuy.

Brilliant leadership doesn’t just happen. It isn’t magic. It isn’t an accident. It’s intentional.

And that’s where I can help.

For more than a decade, I have become a valued strategic partner for the executives, leaders, and teams that I’ve worked with, helping them discover, fine tune and apply the leadership behaviors and skills that enable them to consistently deliver outstanding tangible results.

I have a strong background and expertise in leadership development, emotional intelligence, conflict management, and evidence-based predictors of executive success. I am well-versed in solution focused, strengths based, and stakeholder coaching methodologies, in addition to a focus on coaching millennial leaders. My clients come from a diverse group of industries which includes: Technology, Telecommunications, Financial Services/Wealth Management, Banking, Insurance, Biotech, Life Sciences, Pharmaceutical, Confectionary, Cosmetics, Apparel, Energy and Internet Startups.

Prior to becoming a coach and consultant I held leadership and senior leadership roles in Fortune 500 companies, among them JP Morgan Chase, Prudential Investments, AT&T, and Merrill Lynch.

I enjoy coaching for the Dress for Success GPN Worldwide Program sponsored by Wal-Mart on a pro bono basis, and working as a strategic partner with other executive coaches helping them build and flawlessly execute a focused business plan that ensures a robust, sustainable demand for their services. I also speak on the topics of leadership, emotional intelligence, and conflict management.

In addition to my work and client experience, I’ve earned a variety of degrees, certifications and memberships, including:
