Linda Fernando is an excellent career coach. She maintains an effective balance of the practical and personal sides of what a person needs during coaching. Linda has the gift of knowing when a person needs time to talk and how to integrate that into the task orientation of career transition. She is exceedingly kind as well as goal-oriented, which worked very well for my style. In fact, she makes a special effort to understand her client's way of working, along with priorities and needs; then she integrates these into the coaching sessions. I recommend Linda to anyone desiring an expert coach, and I hold her in the highest professional esteem.” Joan S., Senior Manager and Educator

"I discovered that Linda possessed a natural talent for coaching while we worked together. She demonstrated a keen ability to size up any situation and determine how best to navigate or to influence it. She also consistently emphasizes the importance of creating authentic relationships and finding win-win solutions for every situation. Linda is intuitive, empathetic, possesses common sense – a rarity in today’s world - and is acutely aware of how to communicate with both peers and leaders. She truly seeks to understand an environment first - through observation and listening - before offering an assessment. She challenges her clients find their own, unique solutions – creating self-confidence and trust – even in the most difficult climates. I continue to seek her counsel in my own business and I highly recommend her to anyone at any level.”  Elisabeth B., Founder, Bold Type Communications
