Maybe you know the feeling...
When a work team gets stuck or off-course, it’s messy and complicated to make a comeback. As a leader, you can feel drained, exhausted, and yes sometimes exasperated.
At Wise at Work, we blend the science of work teams and neurobiology to help you get your team’s structural and relational dynamics in place as a platform for success.
Using a proven, do-able, and interactive approach, we help you build a trail map allowing teams to develop skills and tap geniuses, adopt useful tools, and embrace team practices that result in success.
Ruptured teams repair and recover.
Functioning teams refresh and flourish.

Our Unique Approach with Your Neurobiology...
Your nervous system is wise, often hushed. When we understand it, learn to read its cues, and not judge it but leverage it, life and work simply get better and easier. I use the Polyvagal Theory as a lens to uncover your lived experiences, emotional reactions, underlying beliefs, and autopilot behaviors that are stepping stones and whoops, stumbling blocks. Those stumbles are when you get in the way of your best leadership and your team work. Together we resource up your personal agency and professional leadership. Your nervous system can break out of self-defeating neural ruts and spiral up to eat CAKE (be Calm, Alert, Kindred, Engaged). With every bite of CAKE, you'll enjoy new choices for life and work.
Hi, I’m Susie and live in
For years, work teams puzzled for me. Some bolted forward, others slogged behind. To figure it out, I schooled up (as in PhD) to uncover the high-leverage steps that help work teams not only meet their goals but enjoy the climb together.
Every work team I now encounter wants to be better and wiser and find a path forward. Using my background in neurobiology and organizational development, I designed a science-backed trail map for leaders and teams to navigate a new path forward and build long-lasting success.
Your team won’t stump me. I help teams harness their own energy, apply the science of teams, and reach new heights.
TEAM RELATIONS and WORKINGS CAN GET STUCK IN THE MUCK.

Proven Team Map
We’ll survey the team territory together and craft a rebuilding route unique for your team.
Emerge as a Stronger
and Wiser Team
As we blaze the trail together, your team will build its structural and relational muscles. That’s essential to reach your goals!
I can't wait to chat.
Let's start blazing.
You’re ready to ignite your team and invest in it. Good on you! You’ll breathe easier and enjoy watching your team launch off on this trail of rebuilding and renewal.
When your team builds a foundation of productive practices and neurobiology know-how, it will leverage itself into stronger connection, more gusto, and greater performance.
You might still be wondering...
By the time a team hits rock bottom, it will be packing not just poor performance but the baggage of interpersonal resentments and grudges. When teams and leaders expend their emotional labor on grievances, the actual work gets forfeited along with any positive impact.
Don’t wait. Every team can refine its skills, use tools, and build effective practices to strengthen its engagement and performance. Teams want to work better together, they usually just don’t know how. This is the time!
I’ll be honest. Team building exercises make me cringe. Because they don’t work.
What works though is using the science of teams and applying it into skill sets, concrete tools, and resources that the entire team agrees upon and uses — now and in the future. I’ll serve as the guide but the power is co-creating productive practices that your team buys into and puts to ready use.
I use high-leverage steps (based in science) to stabilize the team and move it forward in a timely and engaging way.
Remember though — it took time for your team to spiral downward and similarly, it takes time to climb up to working well together. The good news, it’s quicker and easier with a skilled guide.
Because every team’s needs are a bit different on the trail to high-functioning, package rates will vary. I want your team to succeed because, honestly, working on a team that rocks it is one of the greatest workplace joys I’ve had. I want this sense of connection and flow for your team too and will work within your budget.
