Catalyst for your development

Authenticity, presence and trust. 

Three qualities that make the individual work in the group, make teams perform and make reorganizations succeed. In a world where things go fast, everyday life is becoming increasingly digitalized and decisions are being made 24/7, it is crucial to stop. 

Stop and have a look at yourself, stop the endless back-to-back meetings, look each other in the eyes and sense the dynamic. Identify the processes beneath the surface, between you and your colleagues and what comes in the wake of the changes.

Psykoterapi med en kunde

“Susanne can change a program she has set, and it was important to us that it was not a standard she delivered. We could tell that it was prepared for us, that she has respect for the people sitting in the room…and is able to adjust to them. And Susanne is really good at facilitating. She pointed out our blind spots, so we had some aha experiences and achieved a new awareness in looking at each other. She asked questions that made us get closer to both ourselves and the team.” 

Ulla Wesmann
Director, Quick Care 

“Susanne has created a forum for us, where there is an openness and willingness to work together. She has managed to create consensus with super easy and transparent means and her input has been both concrete and down to earth. We have been able to see ourselves in it and have been able to continue working with it in everyday life – and that is the most important thing” Read more about the case here…

Tom Zøllner
Business Unit Manager, ABB

“As a director in a small organization where I do not have an equal sparring partner, a close and trusting collaboration with Susanne has been a great help to me. I have processed and found solutions for some organizational and personal challenges, which has meant that I have increased my efficiency in my daily work and gained greater mental strength in concrete issues”

Henrik Thykjær

“It was a pleasure to have you as a catalyst. You were sufficiently invisible and yet present. Thank you for guiding us through important considerations and reflections. A good foundation has been created to work on.”

Kirsten Ebbe Brich og Bente Bang
Chairman/Deputy Chairman, Danish district

“Some people want to draw attention to themselves … Susanne is more withdrawn. That doesn’t mean she doesn’t have an impact, because she does. It’s just not about her. I think that is a really good thing.”

Søren Lockwood
CEO, Danica Pension

“She strengthens me by seeing problems I haven’t seen before – and when I grasp the seed of something… something that has been in my subconscious… she grabs hold of it, concretizes it and make my unconscious thoughts conscious.”

Jørn Rindom Pedersen
Head of Process Flow Assurance and Engineering, Total

My preoccupation

I am preoccupied with the importance of strong, healthy and present relationships to help us achieve our results, experience of success and well-being. It can both be the relationship with ourselves, as well as the relationship the team, the family or with your partner. When I work with leadership teams the focus is typically the group dynamics and the psychological processes  within the team and when I work individually the focus is typically our own inner understanding of ourselves.

In my work, whether it is leadership team development, executive coaching or psychotherapy, it is typically questions like the ones below I am asked to help with.

  • How canI/we create more trust and better communication between us?
  • What is needed to establish the best conditions for trust and presence?
  • How do we embrace our differences?
  • How do I handle myself more constructively in relation to others?
  • What does it mean to be an authentic leader, parent, partner or child?
  • How do I/we set boundaries in a constructive way?
  • How do I/we listen better to my own needs and feelings?
  • How do I/we handle conflicts more constructively?


I hope you can relate to the importance of great relationships and if you are interested in hearing more let’s have a meet’n greet.

Parterapi med et par - Susanne Slotsager

Executive Coaching – professional sparring in a confidential room

Executive Coaching is your room for reflection in your professional role. Together we reflect on the dilemmas and challenges in your professional role. 

You get more conscious and get a broader perspective on the dynamic in you, the team and the organisation.

And know that there are ways to get through the stormy weather and if you need a sparring partner I can help you put into words what is not being said, zoom in on the challenges you face, and help you focus on what matters. 

I recommend that we meet 6 x 1,5 hours to ensure development in your professional role.

We meet at my office in Kronprinsensgade 13, 5th floor in center of Copenhagen.

Career coaching
Based on SLOTSAGERS  career coaching model you will go through a 3 steps process to ensure your career is on the right track.

Step 1: Assess & Understand where you are today
Insights, awareness and understanding of own background, motivational drivers, personal values, own uniqueness, education, experience, and skills. We will apply relevant tools and methods like JTI personal profile, Role Analysis, and reflections.

Step 2: Envision & Explore your passion and dreams
Exploring your purpose and vision, your goals, and ambitions as well as need for work-life balance. We will apply a personal career profile (Karrieremodellen) and you will work with your “purpose in life”.

Step 3: Plan & Execute what it will take to reach your potential
Mapping and getting specific on resources in your network/stakeholders, competence development and personal development. All to end up with a concrete career plan on how the right next step looks like for you short term as well as long term.

Together we create a common foundation!

At SLOTSAGER, I know that a team works best if there is a focus on both the rational and the irrational. When we develop management teams, high performance teams and work with dysfunctional teams, it is always with the business in mind and the person at the centre.

You can probably have as much control over the roles, strategies and tasks, but if you do not include the defense mechanisms, the informal roles, the values ​​and the culture, you and your colleagues will not perform optimally. Without authenticity, presence and nerve, we lose faith in ourselves and each other. And that’s bad for business.

My job is to help the team or group of people reach a common goal and understanding.

As a catalyst for your development, it is my role to ensure the framework and balance between structure/management and process/dialogue. I ensure that everyone is heard, seen and met during the process being facilitated. My focus is to reach the goal of the task at the same time as I zoom in on what is going on below the surface.

– an intensive and dynamic program for you who lead strategic changes.
