My Commitments

Susan-structuresMy mission is to help people and groups imagine where they want to go and create a path to get there.

Commitment to learning is at the core of everything I do. Whether or not learning and capacity building is an explicit element of my contract with you, one of my goals always is to help individuals and groups build their own skills and ability to move forward.

Listening to you is always the best place to begin. I will work with you to understand your current situation and environment and figure out our next steps together.

I believe that everyone has something to offer, and I have the ability and desire to meet people where they are and build effective relationships across diverse backgrounds and circumstances. “Eyes on the prize” is an orientation that helps build momentum and mitigate differences.

I am devoted to outcome-based planning, reflection, assessment, and continuous improvement. The two questions always on my mind are, “What are the results you are seeking?” and “What have we learned, and how do we apply what we’ve learned to what’s coming next?”

“Eyes on the prize” is an orientation that helps build momentum and mitigate differences.

Please CONTACT me to discuss your project.


"Susan Fowler is one of the most talented coaches and facilitators I have ever worked with. While at MDC, she provided tremendous support and knowledge to a group of staff, helping them become effective facilitators in their own right, through her diligent support and instruction. In the field, her facilitation is first rate as well. As an example, she brought together a group of diverse individuals from around the country to design an effective learning program that met the needs of diverse individuals and institutions." Dan Broun, Senior Program Director, MDC
