About Sue Coyne

Why Partner with Sue Coyne for Leadership Coaching and Development?

I bring together twenty years of business experience with the latest thinking on leadership and advanced coaching skills and qualifications. My approach is to see you not just as a leader in an organisation but as a whole person who wants success in all aspects of your life. We partner to create the conditions you need to be at your best.

My Leadership Journey

I have personally made the shift from expert (in marketing and market research) to effective leader and then to Executive Team and Board member. I was not only involved in leading a business for 20 years but also operated at Board level as a strategic market research consultant in blue chip organisations.

I pieced together my own leadership development programme through reading and attending courses which took a lot of time and effort. I understand that nowadays leaders are time poor and need time effective access to the right support and skills development. To view/download a copy of My Personal History in PDF you can click here

“Sue combines an understanding of the pressures involved in senior leadership with a style that is engaging, insightful and affirmative”
Janet Soo Chung, CEO, NHS Lancashire


Accomplishments I am Proud of

During the last five years of my business career I led a Management Buy-out and obtained Venture Capital funding. We delivered on the ambitious growth plan and by the time we sold the company it was ranked in the Top 10 of UK market research agencies. Like many women I juggled my career with having children. One of my greatest pleasures now is supporting my two children as they blossom into adulthood.

My Coaching Biography

When the business was sold in 2002 I combined my passions for leadership and helping others to realise their potential by training as an executive coach. I have over 1,000 hours of coaching experience, advanced qualifications in executive and leadership team coaching and am accredited as a professionally certified coach (PCC) by the International Coach Federation (ICF). As a coach I have been honoured to walk alongside numerous leaders in many different organisations as they progress along their leadership journeys.

I was fairly sceptical about coaching at the outset. I have thoroughly enjoyed our sessions and found them very useful so a big turnaround from where I started.
Robert McGough, Partner, DAC Beachcroft

My approach to coaching

Real – it is applied to real situations and includes real time coaching
Integrated – treats each leader as a whole being and expects them to bring all of themselves to the coaching journey and works with the team as well as the individuals
Systemic – situates leadership in the context of the wider system and its impact on key stakeholders
Expectations – includes a measurement process that tracks desired changes and outcomes to ensure a return on expectations for the individual or team, their key stakeholders and their organisation

My future plans

My signature strengths are a love of learning and curiosity so it won’t surprise you to hear that I will continue to study the latest leadership thinking and to further develop my coaching mastery. I plan to do more speaking in the future, develop more on-line courses and explore new ways to support leaders to grow and develop to be the best they can be.

It’s the end of the week. Taking a look at her action list, Operations Director Frazzled Freda notices it’s not got any shorter.  In fact, it’s got longer – even though she’s finally managed to complete a number of priority tasks.

In the second of my blogs about finding your identity as a leader, I want to talk about confidence. Something recently-promoted Operations Director Frazzled Freda had in abundance in her former lead scientist role, but which seems to be eluding her in her new position. What’s gone wrong? Let’s take a look back at Freda’s…
