Welcome to my web home. This is a place for support, learning, inspiration, and connection. This site is a work in progress, as are we! I model my motto "completion not perfection," a tough order for a recovering perfectionist. On this site you'll learn more about me, the positive changes I help executives, women at all levels, and teams create, and about my mission.
Mission. To help individuals like you, and leadership teams, more powerfully show up, speak up and move up so you can be ridiculously happy and successful. I help you identify and then shift limiting mindsets and beliefs about career, relationships, and your Self so you can love and overcome obstacles. Together we will increase your consciousness, sense of purpose and direction, boost your emotional fitness, leverage your strengths, increase your self-acceptance and help you be a more authentic, inspiring and happy leader. You'll learn new habits of thought and behavior, along with practical, tangible, results-oriented techniques.

More about Gail
Gail Sussman-Miller founded Inspired Choice in 2001 to empower people to live and take courageous action by choice rather than obligation. She is a speaker, coach, trainer and writer.
Gail works primarily with:
- Executives in career transition, career quandary, or career advancement
- Women and multi-cultural men and women who want to expand their leadership and impact, and
- Teams who want to collaborate more easily, reduce conflict and reach better solutions sooner
Gail teaches and inspires people to love business obstacles and overcome them with greater ease, less stress and more success.
Coaching Process. At the core of Gail's coaching and Inspired Choice programs, is a 4-step process. This framework creates measurable positive change by helping you:
- get really clear about what you truly want,
- reframe the “yes, but” thinking and obstacles,
- focus on empowering choices and
- take courageous inspired action through small steps.
Workshops and Speaking. Gail presents onsite and virtual obstacle-busting workshops like "How to Love Networking (Marketing, Speaking, Selling)." These programs use a unique process of reframing and shifting perspectives to help people reach their business and personal goals through connections with others, using their natural skills and interests. Gail teaches business people how to love networking and other obstacles the way they cook, golf, travel, garden, ski, and more. Check out the separate "How to Love..." sites and subjects to the left to learn more!
To boost leadership and emotional fitness, a popular workshop is "Your Leadership GPS is Calling. Are You Listening?" This is a link to more detailed list of speaking topics. Email gail to inquire about ways to customize a presentation for your organization.
Professional Experience. Gail comes from a teaching, training and marketing background. She received her training as a professional coach at the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) and is a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF) and Coachville. Prior work experience includes computer job training for visually impaired adults and 13 years at Andersen Consulting (Accenture) in Marketing, Knowledge Management and Technology Coaching. Gail has been motivating people to step into their potential her whole life. She's been inspiring people professionally, as a coach and speaker, since 2001.
Gail calls herself a “mid-life bloomer Baby Boomer!” She is a recovering perfectionist. After years of waiting to feel inspired, or confident enough, ready, or good enough, she found her true passion in work, marriage, motherhood and life after the age of 44! Now she helps others to do the same. Gail considers herself a “poster child” for great marriage and is a proud step mom of 2 grown children and grandmother, too.
