Why Lynda McDermott
Discover What the Right Coach with the Right Team and Tools Can Do
"Having a coach is seen as a badge of honor. And we found that coaching now reaches into the highest levels: 43% of CEOs and 71% of the senior executive team had worked with a coach," cited Fast Company Magazine.
However, just because an individual has a business card and website that describes them as a coach, does not necessarily make them a coach. Lynda McDermott has a unique combination of qualifications that position her as one of the leading organizational development and executive coaches in the world!
