For nearly 20 years, Linda has been focussed on developing leaders in the corporate world, both as a trainer/facilitator, and an executive business coach. She is passionate about guiding others to be the best that they can be, to professionally overcome challenges and change in the executive world, and grow to their full potential - both from a business perspective, as well as a personal one. She has worked with senior executive leaders at several large corporations, including Nationwide Building Society, St Andrew’s Healthcare and other global healthcare organisations.
Linda’s area of expertise includes:
Interpersonal and professional communication
Change management - career and personal
Developing executive presence
Dealing effectively with conflict
Building an effective team within their organisation
This has helped the leaders to coach their team to reach higher levels of performance, increased job satisfaction, personal growth, and career development. This has led to positive performance improvements for the leaders, teams and organisations as a whole.
Linda uses a non-directive style of coaching, guiding individuals to enable them to find their right direction. Listening, and then really listening, to her coachees and asking powerful questions is vital. This leads to enhanced self-awareness, and helps individuals to focus on their behaviours ‘in the moment’ - so they become aware of ongoing patterns that are impacting the results in all areas of their business life.
Linda provides positive support, feedback and advice to individuals to improve personal effectiveness in the business setting. As a coach, she offers useful tools and models to deepen insight and promote successful personal change.
Her style has been described by coachees as warm, enthusiastic, optimistic, insightful and fun - as well as extremely effective.

Linda firmly believes that all coachees have the resources within themselves to achieve their desired goals - her role is to help them identify where there are currently blocks to their success, and enhance the inherent talents that they already possess. This is done through the coachee’s increased self-awareness and confidence.
Linda thoroughly enjoys the interaction with those that she coaches, and takes great satisfaction in seeing her coachees achieve their goals.
Linda believes the coaching relationship is a reflective and explorative partnership. This partnership is based on non-judgement and high positive regard for the coachee, with her guiding the coachee through their learning journey to achieve their goals.
