Measuring Trust

As part of our work we offer a cultural diagnostic using the proven neurobiological DRIVERS® of trust that provide meaningful insight into the workplace experience of a team, and clear indication for targeted intervention to boost intrinsic motivation and engagement.

The DRIVERS® trust-scale© can also be used at an individual level to build emotional literacy and boost wellbeing and performance.


We talk about the Future of Work, but in fact the 4thIndustrial Revolution is here and any enlightened company should be proofing for how this will impact their people.   At the heart of the employee lifecycle is the need to trust your people and for them to trust you.  We are now successfully using Susanne’s DRIVERS model to influence our leaders mindsets to empower their people, giving them a voice and a choice to develop that trust and nurture it through behaviour changes that delivers value for everyone




Director of Diversity & Inclusive Leadership EMEIA

Susanne knows her audience, brings research and theory to life brilliantly for individuals who need to take the lead practically on her area of passion. Susanne’s strength is in her ability to connect quickly, demystify and operate with different leadership levels.




Lead People Partner, Building Society Group

Susanne was great engaging our senior leaders, she quickly grasped what we were trying to achieve. Her delivery style is very professional, evidence and research based. It was a pleasure working with her.




HR Head Eurasia & Africa, Insurance

Susanne’s words chimed with absolutely everyone in the audience and it is certainly the first time in my career that I have been in a room with so many people where you could hear a pin drop !




Director - Major Banking Group

Having got to know Susanne, she hugely inspires me with her passion for driving trust & psychological safety in the work place. She has reframed my thinking from talking about HR as ‘human resources’ but how Industry 4.0 demands us to turn that on its head to ‘resourcing humans’. She delivered an incredible key note to some of Europe’s top CHROs and People leaders who fed back on the amazing insights she provided, helping them understand how by resourcing their people they will gain both cognitive & competive advantages over their competition. I would hugely recommend Susanne as a coach, a speaker and consultant for any business looking to maximise human potential.




Global Sales Leader

We had the pleasure of working with Susanne on two occasions recently where she provided training on agility & flexibility at work for both managers and employees. Feedback from everyone at the sessions was highly positive. We found Susanne engaging, informative, credible, understanding and thought provoking. Much more than we expected and on that basis comes highly recommended. I very much hope we can work together again.




HR Director – Major Bank

Susanne helped us script podcasts to talk about the soft skills needed for the future of work – based on her 7 C’s. She then served as our audio star for each podcast, being interviewed on the topic and sharing her knowledge. We ended up with several great pieces of micro-learning that were practical and accessible. I would definitely work with Susanne again.
