“Sue really helped me and my team when I needed an external perspective and guidance. They guided me to create a vision, goals for myself and the team, and offered a variety of valuable suggestions around structuring the organisation. They are knowledgeable, professional and fun to work with. We all felt heard, while gaining insight to see what derailed us as a team. They also supported us toward creating a sustainable culture of feedback and growth.”
~ KELLYANN K., TEAM MANAGER – DENVER, CO.
“Sue helped me to change my paradigms and beliefs one step at a time. I got coaching from her when there were a lot of uncertainties in my personal and professional life, and I was struggling to stay motivated. She helped me with the accountability approach to create immediate change. Besides that, they guided me to dig deep into my perceptions and beliefs to create long-term change. I’m grateful to have had the coaching and guidance at a time I needed it most.”
~ SHIRIN M., – DIRECTOR OF ANALYTICS – APPLE – BOSTON, MA
“I was fortunate enough to have Sue as both my direct manager and as a coach for four years whilst at Netflix. During that time I got to know her as a visionary leader and a positive coach that brings out the best in her people. She was not only the best manager I ever had, but I also experienced my greatest personal growth during that time as a result of her coaching. I now continue on my growth journey through Transformative Visions, aiming not only for further personal development but also to become a stunning leader, mentor and coach to others, as the next step in my career.”
~ EVA MT., LOCALIZATION MANAGER – NETFLIX – LOS ANGELES CA
“Constructive feedback is indeed difficult to give but is truly invaluable. When well-formulated and thoughtfully delivered it can, in my personal experience, be eye-opening and have a substantial impact on the person receiving the feedback. Based on the coaching I’ve received in the past, Sue Bolton, founder of Transformative Visions, I’ve realised how I react in certain situations and how I’m perceived by others in those situations, which I wasn’t aware of. Being aware of my behaviour has allowed me to actively recognise these situations (both professionally and personally) and work on reframing my reactions.”
~ REBECKA S., SNR PROGRAM MANAGER – AMAZON – LOS ANGELES, CA
“It is such a privilege to have Sue coach me in my early (and ongoing) stages of my new principal product management role. Sue is a wealth of knowledge, and I jokingly told her that my career goal is to be able to successfully manage complex products with her brain cloned to mine. I’m amazed that every problem we encountered throughout our work, she could pinpoint to a theory, a process or a framework – with solutions and approaches to tackle them. I look forward to our regular coaching sessions, as she makes me strive to be a better product manager (and person)! Thank you Sue!”
~ JULES K., – PRODUCT MANAGER – SNSW – SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
“Sue is truly an incredible mentor – as the Product Coach at Service NSW, she has been instrumental in helping each product manager sharpen their product knife. In my year of working with her, she has taught me how to lean into my strengths, helped me identify my opportunities for growth and supported my journey to refining my product practice. I’m so grateful to have crossed paths with her and I will hold these lessons close with me throughout my career.”
~ DIANA B., – PRODUCT MANAGER – SNSW – SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
“Sue has been instrumental in helping me and many of my colleagues understand how we can evolve and add structure to our managerial roles in our organisation. I am lucky enough to have received group coaching from Sue where she has structured and shared her seemingly never ending amount of knowledge in a very reassuring and engaging manner and adapted on-the-fly to the needs of the group. Additionally, her weekly in-depth blog posts are a great read and really enable me to better understand my role within the organisation. I highly recommend Sue to all teams.”
~ CHRIS E, – MANAGER – SNSW – SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
“Sue was both my manager, and coach and has been an encouraging coach that has always pushed me to my potential. I’ve greatly enjoyed time spent with Sue, and she will always look for ways to uplevel your skills and understanding for your own success. I am thrilled I had this opportunity with her.”
~ MELISSA S., PRODUCT MANAGER – NETFLIX – LOS GATOS, CA
“Coaching with Sue Bolton has been an incredible journey of growth and transformation. Sue is not just a coach but a true mentor who has made a profound impact on my career. Her expertise and unwavering support have not only equipped me with the skills and confidence to excel in the world of product management but have also been a source of inspiration. Sue has a remarkable gift for making the most complex concepts feel attainable, and her guidance has been like a guiding light in my professional journey. With her by my side, I’ve not only grown as a professional but as an individual. Sue’s mentorship goes beyond just learning – it’s about personal growth and development.
I can’t express how grateful I am for Sue’s dedication to my success. She’s not just a coach; she’s a friend, a guide, and a true game-changer in my career, and I’m fortunate to have had her support and guidance along the way.”
~ PIERLUIGI R., – PRINCIPAL PRODUCT DESIGNER – SERVICENSW – SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
“Sue is a Coach with Transformative Visions and I was lucky enough to have her time and knowledge shared. Sue is absolutely passionate about what she does and this is clear in the coaching sessions and workshops she runs. In sessions with Sue it required me to dig deep and be vulnerable, not something I normally do, but it was so worthwhile. Sue ran the sessions with the deepest integrity and created such a safe and trusting space which then empowered us. Sue’s personable and extremely knowledgeable and it’s a privilege to have her as a coach.”
~ PAULA G., PRODUCT COORDINATOR – SNSW, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
“Coaching with Sue came at a time when there was a lot of growth & change in my role; it helped me to focus on the critical things I needed to and to identify those things I am passionate about. She helped me identify values that were important to me and then to align the work in relationship to those values and to prioritise accordingly. I’m thrilled to have had the coaching at that time.”
~ JACOB H., – CEO INTERNATIONAL – LIMELIGHT ALCONE, NY, NY
“I’ve had the amazing chance to have Sue as my product coach, and it’s been a game-changer. Sue has this way of breaking down complex problems into logical, step-by-step processes that just click with me. Every time we chat, I walk away feeling pumped and ready to tackle my job with a fresh dose of enthusiasm.
What I really enjoy about our interactions is how she always has this encouraging vibe that makes you feel like you’ve got this. Her coaching isn’t just smart, it’s also super practical, which makes applying what I learn from her so much easier. Sue has created this great space where I feel empowered to up my game. I now approach my work with a sharper focus and a can-do attitude, all thanks to Sue’s nuggets of wisdom.
I’ve read the other testimonials on here, and just like those folks who got to transform their careers with Sue’s help at Transformative Visions, I’m also on this exciting path of growing professionally, but with a bunch of extra confidence and a clearer sense of direction. I’m excited about what’s ahead, and I have Sue’s solid coaching to thank for this new found drive.”
~ CARL W., – PRODUCT MANAGER – SNSW – SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
“I was lucky enough to have Sue coach during my initial step into a Localisation manager role, where I wanted to prove that I was worth promoting me to a Director of Localisation role. With Sue’s coaching, not only did I get the promotion, but I also clarified a team vision, roadmap and implemented a team reorg and got through some difficult conversations. Without that coaching, I don’t think I would have reached that director position. Really fabulous to have that support from Sue.”
~ MAIKE P., LOCALIZATION DIRECTOR – WISH.COM, SAN FRANCISCO, CA
