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.

Book Reviews: Breaking Through Your Own Glass Ceiling

It is extremely difficult to find self-help/leadership books specifically for people of color and this book is a welcome addition. Linda goes much deeper than the typical work harder/take more risks/listen to your gut type of advice and takes into account the inequities, prejudices, and exhaustion that people of color are constantly experiencing as they try to live full lives. Every part of her book reflects this – but without getting mired down in the hopelessness of it. She offers clear, actionable advice and exercises that anyone can do, and you’ll come out with more clarity about yourself, feeling more grounded in what you want, and inspired to keep going. It’s written in a friendly, conversational style and it’s pretty short (130 pgs). This is a big plus for people who want something user-friendly. It’s also easy to use as a group or with a friend.

Book reviews: The Cost of our Lives

With grace, clarity, and compassion, Linda González traces a life that is part of a complicated family tree that includes her father’s other wife and children, an emotionally distant and stubborn mother, her own siblings, and eventually a woman with whom she will start a family. Where avoidance of the truth often filled her childhood with confusion, González tears down the walls of denial to bring forth an honest and powerful memoir of one Latina’s life.”

Public Speaking

Linda González spoke at Mission College on Cross cultural solidarity and about the life and lessons of César Chavez.  Linda is a dynamic speaker with an expertise in supporting BIPOC (Black, Indegenous, and People of Color) and other underrepresented communities.  Linda is also very knowledgeable on social justice issues and provided great depth to the conversation on racial equity. In addition, she provided a calm meditation which helped the audience to be focused and engaged. I would definitely recommend Linda for your next speaking engagement.
