Dr Susan Kahn
Susan works as a coach, consultant, mediator and an observer of working life. She has a particular interest in the behavior of people at work and below the surface dynamics in organisations. As a mediator she is skilled in improving working relationships and developing common understanding between parties in toxic relationships. In addition to her private clients she works as a lecturer at Birkbeck, University of London, teaching coaching and organisational psychology. She is a faculty member at the School of Life, working with businesses to develop their emotional intelligence. She also works as a group relations consultant, including equine coaching. Her research interests embrace leadership, change and vulnerability at work. Her book, Death & the City, published by Karnac, uses psychoanalysis to explore organisational endings.
“Organisations and the behavior of individuals and groups at work fascinate me. I believe in observation and deep listening as tools to identify both the potential and the fragility of leaders and managers, no matter what their status. I work in a gentle yet challenging way to help individuals and organisations work more productively and more thoughtfully.”
