Working with Linda
My coaching philosophy is that coaching should be a safe space for leaders and teams to grow more effective leadership behaviors, learn how to change mindsets, and identify beliefs and assumptions that get in the way of your success.
We do this in partnership, with high trust and collaboration focused on achieving the identified leadership, team, or individual growth goals.
Here’s how I work. First, I focus on helping clients design a relevant and actionable success plan. Then, I draw on my leadership development experience, business knowledge, and expertise in coaching clients to achieve their personal and professional growth goals.
My strength is identifying the appropriate coaching development strategy for clients to attain their goals and achieve greater professional satisfaction and work success.
Individuals ready to expand or change careers engage my services to attain greater career fulfillment, pursue a new job, or create a life purpose and new direction suited to today’s complex and rapidly changing workplace.
As an experienced practitioner, I bring over two decades of individual and group coaching expertise, skills in change leadership, and knowledge in people development to my singular goal of helping clients grow and sustain their capacity for significant work success.
“It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work, and that when we no longer know what way to go, we have come to our real journey.”
– Wendell Berry
