Linda VB


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:

Career transition
Interpersonal and professional communication
Performance management
Organisational effectiveness
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.

Coaching style

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.

Coaching philosophy

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.

 Caitlin has made a real difference to my confidence and to the way I approach my business on a day to day basis.
John Baker, Regional Director, The Jockey Club
 It (coaching) unearthed a depth of confidence that I was beginning to question and enabled me to make a significant change within myself and my work.
Luke Joy-Smith, Managing Director - Somerset Social Enterprise
 I connected with my coach on our very first call and I believe that made the whole difference for me. I wish I could dig deeper on some of my remaining issues but unfortunately all good things have to end. I will definitely recommend coaching and have been already doing it for while. It definitely changed my life.
Stephanie Malka, Director NOC Service Engineering – EMEA
 Great to see that there has been a positive outcome from this.
Simon Gosney, Head of Learning and Development
 Tim has provided some high quality coaching support to me through a time of transition both in terms of job, career and organisational changes. He is a skilled and experienced executive coach who facilitated just the right mix of reflection, future visioning, challenge, compassion and stretch. I’d strongly recommend working with him if you are going through a career or organisation transition. Fun to work with, I always left my sessions with him feeling significantly clearer and more content with my overall direction of travel and next steps.
Neil Savage, Director of Organisational Development 2gether NHS Foundation Trust
 “I selected my coach on the basis that she had a completely different approach to my structured way of thinking. Katherine challenged me and took me way out of my comfort zone – scary and uncomfortable at times but eye-opening. These coaching sessions enabled me to see things from a very different perspective, gave me the time and space to reflect on my practice and provided practical tips and approaches as to how I can develop my performance.”
Zenobia Daar, Head of People, Governance & Performance
 Please continue with the programme. For a guy, like Paul, who does not use the word 'fantastic', who then uses must be really good!
Marissa Bartlett, Head of Organisational Development - Mid Sussex District Council
 Everyone learnt a lot about themselves and others. It was the first training in English that one of my mentors had done and it was really successful for him. We have all come away feeling more confident. I have been on many development programmes and I have to say it has been one of the best I have ever attended.
Radka Lankasova, HR Manager, DENSO MANUFACTURING CZECH s. r. o.
 Steve Delivered a professional, relaxed and engaging session. Relevance, interest and clarity of delivering allowed for a very productive outcome.
Andy Castle, VP of Network Operations and Engineering, EMEA
 I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with Steve. He encouraged me to look at how I view myself and my actions, to actively seek positive outcomes to every day situations. My perception of myself has certainly changed due to my conversations with Steve and I would highly recommend coaching sessions with Unlimited Potential.
