Susan Lucia Annunzio

About

I am the President and Chief Executive Officer of The Center for High Performance (CfHP). In this role, I act as a strategic advisor to CEOs of leading global companies on strategy attainment and business transformation. I have a strong track record of helping leaders maximize returns on strategic, financial and human capital investments. I do this by partnering with senior executives to increase their ability to make complex strategic decisions through enhanced collaboration and creativity. I am a globally recognized speaker and thought leader on shaping and maintaining high-performance business environments. Author of Contagious Success (Portfolio, 2004), a dynamic management book which revealed a global standard for high-performing workgroups that can be replicated in any organization. Contagious Success was voted Fast Company's Readers' Choice selection in January 2005. Additionally, I authored two more prominent business books: Communicoding (Fine, 1990; Penguin USA, 1991) and Evolutionary Leadership (Simon & Schuster, 2001; Fireside, 2002). I have been a guest on numerous local and national television and radio news programs and has been quoted extensively in the business press, including The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, BBC, USA Today, and Bloomberg. Specialties: We help companies attain high-performance by working with executive teams and boards of directors to enhance collaboration, stimulate creativity and improve complex decision-making. During more than 20 years of working with top leaders, we have observed that there is a direct correlation between the way a company's leadership team functions and the organization's long-term performance. To achieve extraordinary results, leaders must model the behaviors of a high-performing workgroup.
