Your perspective and mindset largely determines your journey and destination(s). And, revising or redirecting your mindset can be trained, refined, leveled-up, and individualized to your goals. It’s extraordinary how outcomes change for the better when using approaches that are practical, immediately accessible, and provide greater understanding of your message. In short, deliver your message with intentional goals.

Life rises and falls largely on clear engagement and understanding how concept delivery suits your concept best. All communication is consequential, and delivering with authenticity is important. Genuine engagement cannot be faked – and your audience will sense the disconnect. Learn to keep your personal values embedded in your stories and lessons; it’s a fundamental skill and one that will set you apart.

Group Trainings in 2021 to date cover multiple topics to large, mostly virtual audiences (with goals for hybrid training in the future). Last year (2020) opened new opportunities — and challenges — and we help to adjust and intentionally promote solutions. Fresh emphasis is on pandemic “re-entry” and clarifying our priorities and communications.

Most recently, with colleague Susie Reynolds Reece, we have shared multiple presentations about encompassing digital health and wellbeing, the foster care system, resilience, wellness and wellbeing, and relating new challenges to evidence-based solutions. Other topics include child and youth resilience, positive mental health, suicide prevention in youth and adults, compassionate communication, and staff development with inclusive self-care.

Here are a few testimonials:

  • “These 2 trainers, no matter what their specific topic/target is, the information is wonderful — it is broad across multiple populations, generic and personal for a better life and world. I love being with them! Thank you.”
  • “I work for CASA and this was very informative info I can pass on to the volunteers.”
  • “Linda and Susie present realistic and helpful information.”
  • “Presenters were very engaging and passionate regarding topic. They made great points to consider when dealing with youth.”

Training methods and techniques employ stories, insights, and encourage curiosity and personal discovery. Webinars and online meetings are interactive, and the messages tailored to immediate feedback and questions asked during the presentation. No two trainings are identical, and it’s that flexibility to engage with the audience that makes messages relevant and enduring.

All topics are modified each time to the key needs of the audiences, and the trainings illustrate below specify groups with an availability to rapidly create and expand topics upon request.

  • Communication Mindset™: Today’s language, situations, environment, and participants are varied communicators. Cohesion is improved with an understanding of the shifts that best suit cohorts that may communicate very differently. Through examples, interactive Q&A, images, and even humor, communication may be bolstered to create adaptive teams and creative individuals who better enjoy working together.
  • Maritime Mindset™ — for those in merchant shipping, especially during COVID times, with isolation, long separations, disparate cultures. Also, for cruise lines, brown or blue water pilots, students in maritime academies and schools; specific safety and leadership tools to maintain vital productivity and job satisfaction. SCTW topics with emphasis on communications, leadership, bystander intervention, cross-cultural skills, resilience practices, and suicide prevention and postvention.

  • Durable Mindset™ — my favorite program, stemming from many years of living life fully, and knowing that resilience skills may be enhanced. Flexibility to manage intense situations with grace, and the firm foundation to underpin your life may stretch you for better things to come. For every industry, but especially those that meet frequent stressful and emotional hurdles — and skills and techniques to grow confidence in yourself and to lead others. COVID has exposed the absolute need for Durability to thrive.
  • Command Mindset™ — command leadership of others includes clear communication skills, resilience, ingrained training, discipline, and situational awareness to avoid escalation of tense or dangerous situations. Especially for law enforcement and first responders, who daily face circumstances beyond their control. Awareness and stress management, clear communications, methods to help in risky situations, and strong support systems, with more evidence-based ways to manage new additional stressors in today’s environment.
  • Additional Mindset Trainings exist for youth, education, clergy, and teams in general to operate smoothly, with clarity, and with intentional purpose. Email for more information:
