Linda provided me with coaching early in my leadership career at the ConocoPhillips Elmworth Plant in 2011. You made a huge impact on my life and career as I went on to become a Shift Team Lead, General Foreman, Shift Coordinator, and finally a Operations Superintendent. My Leadership skills were appreciated by many people that I worked with along the way and they have you to thank as you provided me with the fundamentals and motivation that I could make a difference. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Linda for over ten years and I am incredibly fortunate to have her as my coach and mentor. Linda has helped guide my career and professional development – teaching me the importance of continual self-reflection, growth, integrity and authenticity. She encourages me to be true to my leadership style and inspires me to be a better version of myself in a way that aligns with my values.
As I’ve grown over the years and had the opportunity to accept new roles, Linda has always been my first call. She sets me on the right path and prepares me for a successful transition into each new role.
Linda asks great questions and tells you what you need to hear, allowing you to dig deep and get to the heart of the matter. She is such a fantastic champion for your success.
As I moved into leadership roles, I’ve seen firsthand how my team has benefitted from Linda’s coaching. They have grown in confidence and become more adept at meeting their objectives, managing their teams and making decisions that align with organizational objectives.
If you are considering a professional coach, I highly recommend Linda. She has a passion for people that truly does ignite growth!”

There is great benefit to having a coach and confident who invests in your as a person to help you identify, confirm and pursue your goals in life. This includes family, finances and career. For me it began as career coaching but you develop a relationship with your coach, the quire naturally get to know all about you. This means the goals you have for all aspects of your life become inter-twined and important.
What I appreciate about Linda Maul as my Life Coach is her capacity to listen and discern the key issues that I am seeking to address. I have always said the value of working with Linda is the great questions she asks. The deep but simple questions that help to clarify your thinking and purposes. One question she always asks me before we begin any session is why are we meeting today and what do you want to accomplish? Over the 14 years we have been working together, Linda has invested her time in getting to know me as a person and to track my life goals and priorities. This is not counseling or therapy. This is a skilled listener and discerning voice that helps me focus and prioritize around my stated goals. She keeps me honest with myself and accountable to pursue and achieve the goals I have set for myself.

Choosing Linda Maul as my executive coach has been a ‘game changer’ in my evolution as a leader and a person!
Linda’s gentle and inviting approach fosters a safe environment that allows for frank and robust exploration of what makes me ‘tick’ and where I need to grow. That said however, behind this ‘shawl’ of gentleness, is a seasoned Executive Coach who challenges me to fully explore options, goals and objectives. Linda is a master at leading one to ‘shine light upon’ and expose areas within themselves that have been hampering progress and success.
One of the many gifts that Linda has and generously shares is the ability to cut through the ‘white noise’ and focus in on the root issues, with surgical precision. As I reflect on my experience with Linda, a key outcome of our coaching sessions has been genuine and lasting paradigm shifts – paradigm shifts that have resulted in positive growth for myself – both professionally and personally!
Thanks to Linda, I now have the understanding, desire, tactics, courage and focus to evolve to the next chapters of life, both professional and personal – Onward and Upward!

I was always skeptical of the value of a coach and will confess I was apprehensive when my supervisor suggested I participate in the coaching program within our organization. And then I met Linda. She is honest, straightforward, insightful and knows when to prod you into action or steer you into considering an alternate path. Being able to talk out issues and challenges in a trust based atmosphere is a powerful tool for decision makers and she provides that safe space. I know I am a better leader because of the coaching I have received from her over the past four years and would recommend her to any leader looking to grow in their current role or tackle more complex challenges.

Your coaching questions and perspectives were always helpful, particularly when I felt stuck in some way, but on reflection, the thing I value most was that interest. I always felt that you enjoyed helping me to bring the best of who I am to whatever challenges and opportunities I faced. In that you modeled for me the kind of support I want to bring to those I work with. You certainly helped me think through some complex decisions but you also encouraged me to lead with my heart.
