Leadership Solutions

History will be kind to me for I intend to write it. Keep Calm and Carry On!

– Winston Churchill

Are you a leader by choice, or are you leader by default? You don’t need to own a business or have a title to be in a position to help move people or yourself into action. The world’s greatest leaders write their own history versus letting others write it for them.

It’s All About the Energy!

The world, our communities, our organizations and your team need leaders who get their calm, decisiveness, confidence and their energy from an awareness and presence that enables them to tap their greatest potential under all circumstances. Harness the leadership energy you need to confidently deal with lack of certainty, perform more consistently under stress, minimize distractions, motivate yourself or others and keep your fuel tank full so you can lead in both in your professional and personal life.

Next Act Solutions will help you with a Leadership Mastery blueprint using the Energy Leadership Development System™* through one-on-one coaching and/or facilitated workshops with you, your team or a community of other leaders eager to share their journey and learn with and from you.

Linda Burridge has been coaching me for about a year. I met her through my previous job, and re-connected with her after a few years, right at a time when I was starting to re-build my career in a new country. She not only gave me ideas to approach my job search with a positive mindset but also helped me grow as a person.
I worked with her to discover my purpose and values, as well as my areas of vulnerability based on my energy leadership profile and other innovative assessment tools. Then with those results, I was able to ‘get out of my shell’ and start exploring possible roles through networking, mentoring, and volunteering. She helped me learn so much about myself and has greatly contributed to my personal growth. Her approach is comforting yet firm in the areas I needed to work on, and she made sure that I got something out of each session.
Linda’s coaching abilities are second to none! I would recommend Linda as a coach to any of my friends and family who are looking to improve their lives.
