About Susanne Cordes-Hoelterhoff

      Cross-cultural Executive & Leadership Coach I am a cross-cultural executive and leadership coach and trainer, asker of tough question, deep listener, passionately curious and overall co-daredevil. I was born in Germany and grew up in Taiwan where I attended an international school that hosted 52 nations at that time. Speaking German, English, Chinese, and later Spanish on a daily basis formed the core of my multicultural comfort zone very early on. After enjoying a 15 yr. global sales & marketing career in an international setting I grasped the opportunity of completely recreating my own path upon moving to Michigan in 2010. I find joy in diversity, perspectives, building connections, and simplifying complexity, and I use my various experiences to support clients in their growth, creating their authentic self, forever learning, and courage to become the person they strive to be.
