Portrait of SueAnn Freeman

SueAnn is the Principal Executive and Leadership Coach at Active Coaching Techniques. In her role as a coach, she specializes in the conversations you have to ensure that their impact meets your intent. She recognizes that both success and failure begin and end in the quality of the conversation whether speaking in-person,  on-line or writing. She engages clients in role playing important conversations utilizing her expertise as a labor negotiator, employee relations manager, arbitrator and mediator in order to develop sustainable skills for successful interviews, performance/bonus conversations, plus the complex skills of salary/benefit negotiations while building leadership skills and influence down, across and up within organizations. She also recognizes that the first and most important conversation is with oneself about what is really desired out of career and life.
