Leaders are not born, but developed. We destroy the myth that “some people are born leaders.”
Each of us has core leadership abilities within ourselves. That core is defined and fueled by the individual’s desire to succeed and grow.

Linda works closely with different dimensions of an organization to uncover all the various talents and help orchestrate the organization towards success. Recognizing the talent pools, how to bring about stronger collaborations, bridging global, cultural and age barriers in large distributed virtual organizations allowing for stronger seamless operations is one of the many focuses of the Bernardi Leadership Institute.
Linda’s many years of working in large enterprises as well as founding start-ups and working/managing large teams across the globe, enables her to recognize the talent across the virtual teams as well as how to bring about highly effective goal-oriented collaboration. Linda is focused on ‘orchestration’ as the new theme for leadership and delighted to discuss this concept with you in detail.
