All Certified NeuroTransformational Coaches have first completed a recognized coach training program* before completing all four modules of BEabove Leadership’s Neuroscience, Consciousness and Transformational Coaching, a total of over 81 classroom hours (in addition to their core coach training). Upon completion of these modules, our certified coaches have then completed a rigorous Certification Program, which includes additional reading, review, coaching supervision and feedback. At the end of this program, they must pass a comprehensive written test (essay format) covering key neuroscience topics, as well as a one-to-one interview and coaching proficiency test. We’re very proud to recommend all our CNTCs as transformational coaches and experts in the neuroscience of human development.

*in some rare cases, they may instead be trained as therapists — see individual information for more detail.

Business Focus:
Linda is a Certified Professional CoActive Coach (CPCC) with the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) and a Certified NeuroTransformational Coach (CNTC) with BEAbove Leadership who has over 24 years of hands-on business experience both inside and outside organizations. While the entry point with her clients is often about “work” and the growth needed to succeed in professional settings, she can and will wade in deep for more profound personal transformational work to that helps her clients create the full expansive lives they want to live in and outside of work. Whatever the entry point, she’ll meet you where you are with her characteristic high warmth and high confrontation (of the very best kind) style!

Linda often works with individuals who are highly valued for their subject matter expertise – they have mastered their “craft” – and now need to hone their leadership skills.  Often these individuals are being asked to pivot their thinking and way of working to move from “doer” to team or business unit lead, requiring a broader set of skills, capabilities, and perspectives.  Examples include:

SVP, Digital Media Technology responsible for starting up a new business unit with a new P&L within a holding company and multi-agency structure. Result: Navigated the politics of a matrix organization with competing incentives.  Managed negotiations by anticipating reactions and sensitive areas.
Newly promoted SVP, Delivery Management responsible for managing a large extended team and transitioning into senior leadership role. Result: Understood the impact of her communication style and leadership approach on the team and other key stakeholders and fine-tuned it for each audience to create increased trust, engagement and partnership.

As a coach, Linda brings a unique ability to quickly understand an individual’s role and relationships within the organization, gain the client’s trust and provide coaching that can immediately be applied. She has helped her clients with: communication skills, conflict management, organizational landscape issues, business stakeholder management, and leadership and management skills.

“Linda made the effort to understand the operating constructs I was working in, so the work we did was within context. I was able to learn in real time.”
“She helped me reframe the battle by changing my perspective. I found compassion for my adversary and broke the cycle that day.”
“I stopped wasting time and energy on things that I wasn’t aligned with – I became more connected to myself and developed more clarity, curiosity, openness, presence, the skill of detachment and a willingness to suspend judgment.”

Her work spans a number of different industries and types of organizations – financial services, advertising, media, marketing, high-tech, bio-tech, retail, engineering and construction, management consulting, and non-profits. In all of Linda’s work, she brings humor, compassion and patience while “telling it like it is.”

Linda received her B.A. in Psychology from Smith College and her M.A. in Personality and Social Psychology from CUNY, Hunter College.  She is certified in a number of self and 360 leadership assessments, including CCL’s Leadership Assessment Suite, MBTI, Hogan, DISC, and Social Style. Her certifications as a Kripalu yoga instructor and Reiki Master enhance her skill set in the areas of stress reduction, energy management and leadership focus.
