Lead Like A Woman


Hope is Not a Strategy

Suzette Patterson

Suzette Patterson is the Founder of STAR-Performance Group, an authorized Sandler Training Center in Frisco, Texas. Suzette spent over 20 years in software sales and implementation before starting her Sandler business. She sold directly to physician practices and also built and managed teams for the largest GE Healthcare value-added reseller in the country. What she learned from all of those years of selling is that most companies do a great job of product and service training but they underestimate the value of having a sales process and developing their leadership teams.

Suzette blends her own experience with the internationally proven training and evaluation tools from Sandler Training to teach a unique brand of sales and leadership training as well as personal development. She has been instrumental in helping successful companies develop management sales and prospecting strategies. When she isn’t working with clients, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, riding motorcycles with her husband, and reading nonfiction books at the rate of one per month.
