Susan’s gift is her ability to “read” individuals and a group, and from that create a working dynamic that fosters respect and authentic growth for everyone involved. I’ve worked with Susan three times, in three different countries, with three very different groups. Each time, I’ve marveled at her ability to make connections both with my students and in the host community, her talent for facilitating deep discussion, and her flexibility in adapting the program to fit the group. She is a model of all the skills we strive to develop through global education.
I was impressed with Susan’s facilitation skills from our first activity at World Leadership School’s Facilitator Training. Her personable enthusiasm was contagious, even for a veteran facilitator like me who knows all the tricks. Susan is genuinely the ‘mentor in the center’ of everything, but she uses that talent to push her participants beyond their own expectations.
I was so impressed with Susan’s facilitation skills. It is evident that she speaks from the heart and portrays her authentic self in her teaching.
You are doing what you do so well; connecting/bridging with with like minded people & other cultures.
Susan’s leadership beautifully navigates the varied terrain that global experiences bring us, from the discoveries that ignite our sense of being and purpose, to the challenges we face as we realign our sense of self and our place in the world. With her wise and centered presence, Susan is able to inspire each individual and the group as a whole in a way that is both professional and authentic. As a global education facilitator, Susan’s deep understanding of people and their context in the world makes learning vibrant and transformative.
