Meet Linda P. Cousineau

Prior to discovering the world of training and coaching, Linda held leadership positions in both the private and public sectors. She learned first hand what takes place when organizations implement strategic and operational plans, without training their teams on the skills needed to see them through. 

Linda’s authenticity and contagious energy are apparent in all aspects of her work. She has insight into what motivates and inspires individuals to achieve permanent change in their performance and attitude. 

Consider adding me to your network! 

“We engaged Linda to develop and provide training generalized staff team building… Her detailed preparatory work resulted in a superior training experience for all staff. I have had nothing but positive comments and have noticed a significant “attitudinal” shift in my staff since the training took place. Her ability to move seamlessly between French and English was also very beneficial, I have met few trainers who can operate on this basis. Overall, I would recommend Linda’s services to any client in need of professional team building and/or sales training.”
