I took away a lot from my sessions with Lynda, she is an extremely good listener - in the last session she was referring back things I had said at our first session a month earlier - things that I didn't remember. She was able to help me draw my own conclusions around behaviours and techniques without being in anyway confrontational. I felt welcomed and important as there was no topic that was too small or irrelevant to discuss. Lynda initiated some really good exercises that helped me to learn a lot about myself both professionally and personally. I hope to carry on with the techniques and learnings beyond the time spent during coaching.
