“In her book, Get There Now, Susanne uses personal anecdotes and stories punctuated with meaningful questions to illustrate the genesis of her approach to leadership and life. As I read, I allowed myself (i.e., made the choice) to feel the emotions that resonated within her stories and reflect on their honesty and integrity. One moment I was swept up in the playfulness of the story, and the next moment, near tears as I reflected on and contrasted her life with my own experiences. Thanks to Susanne, I’m making daily choices to ‘Get There Now.’”
