I’ve said things aloud to you that I have never said to anyone; I needed to do that so I could think…you were my thinking partner, and now I am confident in my ability to deal better with challenges at work.

Vice President, 700-employees | energy sector

I have such a heightened sense of self-awareness now; your coaching session really made a huge difference for me.

Executive Director, 100-employees | social sector

You always have this sixth sense when to connect. You were instrumental in getting me to move through “the fog” and to get the process of clarity started. I would be more than happy to be a reference for you.

Manager, 20 employees | financial sector

You have a respectful and purposeful way of calling a spade a spade; there is no escaping your observations, and so very approachable.

CEO/President 500-employees | hospitality sector

Linda has been very genuine, caring and motivated to help me.
