Becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming yourself. It is precisely that simple and it is also that difficult."

- Warren Bennis


Following 30 years of consulting experience across all industries and sectors, and after two pivots, Suzanne Sitrin knew she could make her biggest impact among business leaders in North America by implementing a strong leadership culture within their organizations.  Blue Birch Consulting was founded to help leaders grow, evolve and feel more confident. 


Blue Birch Consulting believes that top to bottom leadership culture is achieved when the right people are in the right roles, values are defined, and talent is optimized.

Blue Birch Consulting will work with you and your team to: 

  • Create a thriving leadership culture for your organization. 

  • Optimize the way your individual leaders + teams work for the most efficient and effective output.

  • Align your talentto the work to be done for the organization to be successful

  • Coach leaders for growth by leveraging strengths and developing areas of opportunity.

  • Help newer leaders build critical, foundational skills/behaviors to be successful in their role

  • Work with your team to “Build Your Bench”: Ensuring there is a succession plan in place for each individual if and when it is needed.

The Blue Birch Consulting Approach is greatly influenced by Principal + Founder Suzanne Sitrin’s 30-years of experience in all areas of Organization Development as a Consultant with a major management & HR consulting firm, as well as her internal consulting experience at a multi-national financial services company.  Our approach is also built upon Suzanne’s passion for  connecting with people.
