Is the burden of leadership weighing you down?

Are you struggling with managing your team or making confident decisions?

Or are you simply searching for a sounding board to help you achieve the vision you have for yourself or your company?


My name is Dr. Susan Pazak. I provide executive and professional coaching for leaders, employees, innovators, paradigm shifters, and self-starters from all around the United States. I help individuals and organizations capitalize on strengths, become the best version of themselves, and actualize their goals.

If you are ready to get started, let’s talk! Or see below to learn more about my executive and professional coaching services and how we can work together to reach new heights.

What is executive coaching?

Whether you are the head of a massive team or a self-taught entrepreneur, your role calls for difficult choices and expert strategy.  Many leaders feel unsure, lost, and even lonely – the success of the company falls on your shoulders.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Executive coaching provides the support, guidance, and advantage that all leaders deserve. Coaching is not therapy per se, but it is a client relationship dedicated to helping you, your team, and your organization thrive.  While life coaching focuses on finding your personal path to success, executive coaching centers on developing management skills, navigating organizational operations and workplace relationships to help you maximize your leadership potential.  Executive coaching is also different from therapy or counseling, as we do not diagnose and we are not going to work on mental health issues.

Some of the challenges you can address with executive coaching include:

  • Decision-making issues
  • Management problems
  • Lack of self-awareness
  • Teamwork difficulties
  • Setting and hitting goals
  • Faulty communication
  • And many more!

Is executive coaching a good fit for me?

Coaching is a great fit for you if you:

  • Believe there is room for growth
  • Are open to an outside viewpoint and feedback
  • Are looking for creative ways to become a stronger leader
  • Want to focus on your organizational challenges and how to best handle them

How can executive coaching help?

Executive coaching can benefit you in four key ways:

Improve self-awareness

Sometimes we are unaware of our talents and faults.  Executive and professional coaching can encourage you to look inward, ask questions, and reflect on your preconceptions.  Your coach will help you discover your strengths and explore how to best utilize them within your organization.  You will also learn about your areas of opportunity and nourish a sense of curiosity.

Establish strong dynamics

With a better sense of self-awareness and wonder, executive coaching can also open up your mind to see your team’s perspective and true capabilities.  Your coach will provide tools and strategies to build stronger relationships, which will lead to enhanced workplace dynamics and performance.

Accomplish clear goals

Some leaders struggle with setting specific and measurable goals.  Executive coaching offers a private space to identify attainable objectives and the actions needed to accomplish them.  Rediscovering yourself and forming deeper connections can also boost your confidence to evaluate your options and make assertive decisions that get you closer to those results.

Gain a sense of empowerment

Awareness, trust, and assertiveness can all empower you to forge your own path.  Your coach will ask you questions, challenge you, and guide you through the process, yet you will be the one taking the reins and gaining insight to navigate leadership issues.

What does executive coaching look like with Dr. Pazak?

I want to help you forge your own path.

As a psychologist and coach, I combine a unique skill set to help you become the leader you envision.  My mission is to guide individuals like you to recognize strengths and areas of improvement, define development goals, and prepare a viable growth plan.  I will be here to provide you with support and accountability every step of the way.

I offer executive coaching in person as well as via video or phone for your convenience.

You carry so much pressure to lead and succeed, often without a clear roadmap.  You might have no one to look to, no one to vent with.  But, it does not have to be this way.  Executive coaching can help you overcome the obstacles that may be interfering with your progress and make the necessary changes for a thriving future.
