About Susie


Susie Tomenchok

When it comes value, few words compare.

In fact, they say there’s no substitute for it; that it’s wise to listen to the voice of it, and to seek the counsel of those who have it. It’s also universally regarded as the best teacher, which is great news for executive-level leaders because experience, wisdom, and the ability to speak into people’s lives are qualities Susie Tomenchok has in abundance.

How We Work

It’s your journey, but few succeed on their own.

In Susie’s experience, there are three things that are universally true about people’s pursuit of success: their definition of success is often unclear; the path is neither straight nor smooth; and they typically don’t get their without help. Life is an adventure—one we were never intended to face alone. Which is precisely why Susie has made it her mission to help leaders navigate their lives by sharing a single, powerful truth: adopting a negotiator mindset is essential to professional and personal success.

“I love when you read a book and you feel like the author wrote the book just for you and this is certainly the case for me with The Art of Negotiation without Manipulation. I am guilty of thinking negotiation is something you do on a ‘need-to-know basis’...negotiating the salary for your new job, when asking for more staff, or wanting to go to a conference. There are many articles, books, and podcasts on negotiation; The Art of Negotiation without Manipulation really resonated with me where others have failed. I realized how much negotiation is happening around me at work that I am missing out on and how often I am negotiating with myself by delaying necessary discussions.”
