Dr. Lynda Reid's work and life passions have taken her from Canada to Europe, Mexico, Australia, the Caribbean, the United States, and China. Her diverse career has taken her from teaching (elementary through graduate school) to consulting (teachers and administrators) to marketing and recruitment for collegiate study abroad programs.
Lynda's doctoral dissertation explored how her immersion experiences stretched her cultural comfort zone and challenged her unconscious beliefs and bias. Her research explored how embracing yourself as an outsider, releasing judgment, and accepting differences can teach and lead others to create a life of fulfillment, success, and purpose.
Her pursuits have revolved around and incorporated the latest in brain research, POSITIVE INTELLIGENCE®, and the creation of positive change. Her desire to support others in maximizing their impact and potential led her to further her knowledge and abilities through intensive coach training and attaining Professional Coach Certification with the International Coaching Federation.
The crisis has also been a significant teacher in her life. Hurricanes and wildfires have required her to rebuild, process loss, relocate, and start again. She has been a caregiver and cheerleader for her husband through his two aggressive cancers. As lifelong educators, they believe a crisis is always an opportunity to learn, grow, and inspire others to tap into their capacity for resilience.
Dr. Reid's individual and team coaching programs support her clients in breaking their status quo and cultural blind spots, increasing their mental fitness, and maximizing individual and group potential.
As a coach, she has had the honor of "holding the space" for individuals, entrepreneurs, and business teams in accounting/auditing, trust, education, healthcare, real estate, hospitality/tourism, law, entertainment, and non-profits to create dynamic and sustainable change.
