Her ability to strategize, coach and deliver training was something I had not seen and even today ranks among one of the most enriching experiences I have been involved in.

Today, like yesterday, her main goal is to help teams unlock their productivity and the untapped energy that is there.

    • “I have partnered with Linda to address organizational effectiveness within teams. She worked with me on a project that others thought would be impossible to deliver and helped me provide excellent/valuable results. This project involved about 100 clients and Linda helped design and deliver a day-long session resulting in a 4-5 rating with 1 being the lowest. Linda took an ambiguous and complex project and turned it into something the client could embrace and value. She helped deliver strategies that my client could use to drive better services and streamline processes. This also included techniques on how to collaborate more effectively through the understanding of personality styles and work dynamics. Linda is also a board member of an organization that I partner with from time to time. In this role she has been insightful in directing the group on how to manage through organizational dynamics while leveraging the expertise and resources of executive leadership.” Tracy Bennett
