Working with Linda is a great pleasure. She is always “present” with the client. In a group session, she capably changes course on the spot to ensure that the client gets the help that is needed at that moment and is able to move forward and to break through whatever has impeded progress in the organization.

Linda was an excellent coach to alumni of Windcall, a leadership resiliency program for community and labor organizers. I consistently received great feedback on her work and heard her in action myself conducting coaching “sampler” sessions on our program orientation calls. She is warm, supportive and concrete all at the same time.

Linda is a thoughtful, well-grounded, and supportive beacon of light that coached me through a major transition. She also helped guide our team through challenging conversations on current and historical issues of race, class and gender in our organization and the larger environment.

Working with Linda helped me become unstuck from negative thinking and the pull of taking so-called “safe” career paths. She helped me see how following my passion, although scary, is doable, deeply fulfilling and a happier path. I couldn’t have made the shift without her.

Linda and I have been working together for about eight years now. She has coached me through major life goals: writing my MA thesis, running for office, losing a parent, and losing a job. I struggle with self-care and working with Linda helps me stay focused on caring for myself in spite of what is happening in my life, and to keep moving toward my goals, sometimes fast and sometimes slowly, but making progress. It helps to have someone who lovingly holds me accountable to my goals.

In the rigid and inflexible field of resume writing, Linda’s contributions to her clients are a breath of fresh air – applying a unique and creative touch while retaining the optimization sought by recruiters in the field. Linda has been able to delicately balance an organic and client-specific writing approach with the specifications of the industry. We can tell her client’s benefited from this rare writing ability, as we continually hear of their success stories using Linda’s work. Truly an amazing writer – working alongside Linda was a joy!

Linda is an absolutely terrific coach. Over the two+ years we’ve worked together, she’s helped me develop as a leader, providing thoughtful questions and tools that have supported me to develop my vision and to reach my goals. It’s an extra bonus to be able to draw on her deep experience in facilitation, and I’m looking forward to having her new book as an additional resource.
I’ve had the good fortune to benefit from Linda González’ wise counsel in many areas. She is a gifted writer/editor, with a keen eye and ear for the written and spoken word and strong sense of the power of story. Linda’s extraordinary commitment to social justice and her efforts to expand opportunities for people of color, especially mujeres, is an inspiration. As she does for herself, Linda helps each of us envision and plan how we can create fulfilling personal and professional lives.

I got to work with Linda as a coach through the Windcall program and she was just the right match for me. Linda is thorough, excellent at getting to root causes of issues, and deeply committed to unveiling power within her clients. I felt seen, supported, and able to quickly move both technical and emotional blocks to my work out of the way, and drop into deeply purposeful work. I recommend her for folks who are ready to do some focused work towards their joy.

As an equity leader managing power dynamics, her coaching approach is helping me to dismantle white supremacist cultures by embracing my power. Her graceful approach pushes me out of my comfort zone so that I can fully embrace my Latina super power!
