About Susanne Cordes-Hoelterhoff

How do you challenge global communication when you are challenged by it? Think beyond borders, find similarities in the differences and simplify complexity. With a background in German, Asian and American cultures, as well as 15 years in Corporate Germany, Susanne understands the challanges of Third Culture Kids, cultural transitions, intercultural teams and cross-cultural communication. Based in Michigan, USA, since 2010, Susanne was the first non-American President of ICF Michigan, the Michigan Charter Chapter of the International Coach Federation in 2014. Susanne enjoys working with cross-cultural individuals and executives, as well as intercultural teams, uncovering their dynamics, creating the awareness for each individual within them and simplifying the complexity of the communication. Simply put, she loves engaging individuals in change and turning a group into a team.
