2thrive: Leadership, high performance and talent management

About Me and 2thrive

I'm Dr. Suzanne Ross and I'm the founder of 2thrive. I established 2thrive to do just that - help leaders, teams and organisations to thrive!

I have over 20 years international experience in management and leadership roles, establishing high performance teams, leadership and talent development, performance management and talent management strategy.

I’ve worked across the private, public and third sector with industries including: soft drinks, financial services, software, construction, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, information solutions, technology, automotive engineering, software, publishing and retail as well as: Local Authorities, care home providers, rescue services, The Armed Forces, HMRC and social enterprises.

This pragmatic, practical experience is complimented by...

  • A PhD from Nottingham Business School in Executive talent, success and derailment drawing on research from the fields of talent management, psychology, neuroscience and leadership. 
  • Accreditation in a range of psychometrics including Reuven Bar-On EQi, EQ360 and Team EQ, MBTI Step 1, Hogan HPI, MVPI and HDS and the Emotional and Social Competency Inventory. 
  • A Diploma in Executive Coaching from the Academy of Executive Coaching
  • Master Practitioner European Mentoring and Coaching Council
  • Membership of professional bodies including the Institute of Directors, the International Coaching Federation, the Association of NLP practitioners and the Higher Education Authority. 

I present and write regularly on leadership, female talent, talent, success, resilience, life balance, derailment and change and have been featured in Management Today, the Sunday Times, the Daily Telegraph and The Conversation.

What does all this mean for you?

  • 'Best' thinking not just latest fads, distilled into straightforward, pragmatic strategies and actions leaders, teams and organisations can take to improve performance and achieve results.
  • A results focus: Leadership is about delivering results. It makes sense then that leadership development, talent management solutions and coaching should help you, your teams and your organisation do just that!
  • Better thought through solutions: having worked across all sectors and diverse industries I provide a well thought through solution not just a quick fix. 
  • Peace of mind: In the largely unregulated industry of leadership development and coaching, qualifications from reputable organisations, professional accreditations and membership of bodies such as the International Coaching Federation and European Mentoring and Coaching Council ensure codes of ethics are followed and a committment to continuous development.
