“Asked for a conservative estimate of the monetary payoff from the coaching they got these managers described an average return of more than $100,000, or about six times what the coaching had cost their companies.” Fortune Magazine, 2-19-01


A fortune 500 firm commissioned a study using MetrixGlobal, LLC, and determined that executive coaching produced an astounding 529% return on investment. 75% of the respondents expressed coaching had significant or very significant impact on at least one of their business areas.

Coaching can help identify “High Performance Patterns” in specific individuals on teams, and thus gives you the ability to leverage this understanding.


Do you know why Olympic athletes, those at the top of their game, the best of the best in the world, have a coach? Even they recognize the need for someone to support and encourage them, mentor and redirect them, and ultimately hold them accountable to function at their optimal best! You can have this same powerful experience that can propel you into your personal and professional destiny and purpose! “Until we focus and define what is most important to us, we live our lives in a haze of other-directed urgencies. Coaching is designed to help you stay focused – to practice ‘planned abandonment’ of opportunities that would merely serve as distractions.”                                                                                        Laurie Beth Jones

For the last year, I have been working with Sue Porter as my business and life coach. Sue has been an Lisa Krikawaunbelievable part of my life. When I first started with Sue, I was hanging on by a thread. I was experiencing a number of difficult issues to manage. As a small business owner with 10 employees and a wife and mother of 3, there is no shortage of challenges in my life, but the past year has proven to be particularly difficult. With Sue’s help, I have been able to traverse the treacherous landscape of business development and personnel conflict, while bringing balance and clarity to my personal and family life.

Incorporating the understanding of DISC personality styles has proven to be integral to my relationships, both at work and at home. I now understand how certain strengths are tied into specific weaknesses, bringing me grace and insight into my interpersonal relations and a deeper understanding of human nature.

I’ve been able to apply this same learning to gain appreciation for my own personality type, which has helped me to understand what my talents are and how to truly spend my time wisely. What a blessing Sue has been for me, and I feel that she has rocketed me through what could have potentially been many years of hardship and frustration.

Thank you Sue!

She not only provided insightful and practical techniques for working in a difficult environment, but also provided valuable individual attention which resulted in a better understanding of human interactions in professional and personal relationships.

Sue’s knowledge of effective communication and complex relationships is key to motivating you to stretch yourself to reach greater potential. It is difficult to write a few words to describe the profound impact Sue had on the organization and the individuals involved. The best way I know to say it by highly recommending Sue as someone you should work with.”
