The Four Shields of Leadership retreat opened my heart and soul in ways I never would have dreamed possible. Susanna is a deeply caring, highly gifted guide on the journey within. The Four Shields framework fooled me – at first I thought it overly simplistic. Was I ever wrong! Doors look simple, too, but they can lead, as this retreat did, to amazing new pathways of understanding, insight, and growth.

The Four Shields of Leadership retreat had a profound effect on me as a leader. It went beyond an intellectual understanding of leadership to give me an embodied experience of my own unique leadership style. I was able to transcend what I thought a leader “should do” to appreciate who I am and who I am becoming. I also have new tools to guide others to bring all that they have to offer to their leadership. I would highly recommend the Four Shields of Leadership retreat to anyone who is in a position of leadership. It is a deeply personal experience that will challenge and reward on every level.

What a profound learning experience this was for me! The nature of the Four Shields model makes the application to life and leadership immediate. Participating in this retreat has allowed me to make significant changes in my own leadership and in the way I try to influence my larger organization. It has transformed my leadership on multiple levels, all of which has helped me be more effective, personally and professionally. The greatest realization I walked away with is how fear paralyzes me as a leader and how most of the time it is perceived fear, not real fear.
