About Us

As a Gallup Certified Strengths coach, Susan Surtel, the President of Strengths Canada, has seen first-hand how the Strengths philosophy can inspire and motivate people, resulting in a more fulfilling life both professionally and personally, and enabling people to be the best that they can be.

After twenty years as a training consultant, she began training and coaching with CliftonStrengths in 2010, offering sessions that communicate the power of the Gallup methodology. In these Strengths sessions, which she has delivered to individuals and groups at all levels of business, she has shown her clients why using a Strengths-based philosophy helps individuals and companies meet performance goals and business objectives, improve teamwork, heighten morale, and empower managers.

Susan brings to each individual and group the power of her own signature themes, which are Input, Maximizer, Achiever, Connectedness, and Learner, with supporting themes of Responsibility, Harmony, Belief, Woo, and Empathy. These themes help her to maximize the potential of others, to build trusted relationships, to use innovative methods to heighten the learning experience, and to work as a partner to find concrete solutions and new directions.

Susan is a certified coach with the International Coaching Federation (ICF). She coaches people one-on-one to help them to realize their potential.

Susan has delivered Learning and Development solutions for 25 years. You are sure to be inspired, will attain practical insights and approaches to takeaway from the session, and will have a lot of fun along the way!
