Winston-Salem, NC – Dr. Patricia Suggs is an International Coach Federation Certified Coach and founder of Patricia Suggs Coaching, where she coaches professional women to navigate corporate gender bias. Through her transformational program, women become more confident that they can make more money and shatter the glass ceiling.
Dr. Suggs has trained and facilitated individuals and groups for over 40 years. She has coached leaders in a variety of settings: businesses, nonprofits, individually and in groups. Her passion is to help leaders become the best they can be with the skills and compassion necessary for success.
“Women need peer support not just from women, but also from men who will encourage them and give them opportunities to be the leaders they can be,” says Dr. Suggs.
Dr. Suggs says one of the most difficult obstacles for women in the workplace is navigating conflict.
“There are ways to confront an issue without being angry or defensive,” says Dr. Suggs. “You can do it in a very rational, professional way, and that's an empowering feeling.”
Prior to launching Patricia Suggs Coaching, Dr. Suggs spent 42 years in ministry, retiring this past June from the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church.
“I left our conference thinking there's more that I could be doing,” says Dr. Suggs. “I just felt a shift, like I was being called in another direction. I got trained in coaching, in conflict work, in energy work, in spiritual direction, and I began to realize that all of these things can work together. Helping women is what I really want to do and I love coaching, because you help the person discover the answers within themselves.”
