Linda Marshall, President

As lead consultant and facilitator, Linda brings over 30 years’ experience developing emerging leaders, teams and individuals.

  • We invited Linda to work with our team to do Emotional Intelligence Assessment and Coaching. Linda’s training was very engaging and we were all impressed with how supportive and available Linda made herself to ensure our team was successful! She has empowered our group to resolve challenges in a positive manner and we have seen an increase in both productivity and motivation. Our team was very appreciative and saw this as an investment we made in them both professionally and personally and I know we will continue to see the benefits of Linda’s coaching in the years to come.
