I facilitate self-discovery and meaningful breakthroughs in my clients, who then experience greater confidence, clarity, direction and purpose in work and life. I connect clients with their deep internal wisdom and abundant external wisdom.

I’ve spent 30 years garnering results for my employers and clients across the globe in multiple sectors (nonprofit, corporate, healthcare, education and government). I’m a TEDx Speaker and published in multiple commercial and academic publications. I was the co-founder and first Manager of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion for University of New Mexico Hospitals. I was the President of Susana Rinderle Consulting, LLC for 20 years, and a former Principal Consultant for Korn Ferry.

I’m a Certified Professional Coach, an Associate Certified Coach, and a Certified Facilitator of The Resilience Toolkit. After coaching, my clients report improved team relationships and productivity, greater clarity and confidence, more effective decision making and “leading the way [they] always imagined.” I’m known for being knowledgeable, warm, funny, passionate, impeccable, and having high integrity.

A native of Los Angeles and fluent Spanish speaker, my four innate superpowers are insight, empathy, humor and problem solving! I’m both artist and scientist – a big picture thinker with an eye for detail. My core values are integrity, authenticity, beauty, justice and self-expression, and I’m committed to creating a world that works better for more of us.

Administrative Director, Organizational Effectiveness and Transformation, Akron Children’s Hospital

“I’m now leading the way I always envisioned, because of the tools I learned from working with you. My team has gelled and I’m confident in their ability to handle our high-stakes projects while I’m out on leave. I even look forward to our staff meetings! I now own more of the conversation with my boss and take the initiative with my peers in my areas of expertise – even though I’m the youngest leader. Your coaching me has benefitted them in ways they’ll never know!”

Manager; Planning, Programs & Analytics, Chevron, Global Diversity

“Coaching built my confidence that people do want to hear from me and value my opinion, and that doing so makes the company better. You brought insights that hit home in a way that became a permanent part of me, and I have already shared these perspectives with others. This allows me to coach others more effectively! You’re the perfect balance of guiding self-examination, providing direct insights and holding me accountable on actions. I’m proud not only that I achieved my initial goals for coaching, but that I was able to explore additional topics in detail which have made me a more effective leader.”
— Matt Turns

Training Manager-Business Operations, BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc.

Susana’s coaching has hugely impacted me in my own experience of clarity and authenticity, and amplified my ability to make the impact and create the results I want. She is highly intuitive, graceful in her skills and has a depth of experience, perspective and context to bring to the coaching situation. I highly recommend her as your coach to be better positioned to get the results you care about and are committed to.
