If you need an executive coach to help your business, what do you look for? An expert who knows all the answers and comes in and applies them to your company? A specialist in improving ROI at any cost? Or are you ready to admit you might need an elephant chaser? If you are ready to rid your company of the root cause of problem rather than implement a “program of the month” to attack symptoms, you might be ready for Linda Finkle of Incedo Group.
In her 25 years of experience, Linda has found that it’s often the failure to communicate about unspoken work topics that often prevents companies from reaching their potential. Maybe it is pay rates, or how salaried employees routinely take long lunches, or how one department appears to be favored over another that is the “elephant” that everyone walks around and never openly talks about. Or maybe employees are territorial and unable to change for fear they will be left behind. Linda specializes in identifying the elephant and chasing him out of the building and off the property so that you and your staff can get to serious business challenges.
Chase the Elephants Away™ is the topic of one of Linda’s most popular seminars and workshops, but that sums up her general approach. Linda helps staff confront the elephant and move him out, as they learn to discuss why he took up residence there in the first place and work out solutions to act as a brick wall to keep him out. For over 25 years, she has left people talking, laughing, – and working together more effectively –both in her own company and in businesses across the country.
She has worked with dozens of business and partnerships across a variety of industries to help bring about changes in attitude, get people listening, thinking, and communicating in new ways that help everyone climb onboard for whatever changes are coming their way. Of course, company profitability is an inevitable side effect, but at least as important is that partners and employees have more fun, enjoy their jobs more, and invest more of themselves in the work process because they feel empowered and valued.
A highly sought-after workshop leader, facilitator and speaker, Linda Finkle has been a business and partnership coach for over 10 years. She does not use “canned” presentations, but meticulously researches and custom-tailors very engagement to address the unique challenges and opportunities facing your group.

Before concentrating on her coaching career, owned and managed a recruiting firm for over 20 years. During that time, her personal interview-to-hire ratio was almost 1:1, with the average tenure of employees she placed with organizations exceeding 8 years (and the last 7 years they were senior level positions). She was successful because she used the same approach she uses with current clients; she was able to effectively communicate with potential hires and by actively listening to their responses, made a successful match with her client’s needs.
When you need an elephant chaser, call Linda Finkle to address your coaching needs in a personal, down-to-earth, professional manner. Linda is a Master Certified Coach (certified by the International Coach Federation) and a certified graduate of Coach U. She also has a bachelor’s degree from Ohio University.
Linda’s reputation for effecting long-term, positive change in organizations has brought her coverage in numerous publications including Investor’s Business Daily, The Wall Street Journal, Reurters, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, Harvard Business Review, US News & World Report and many other publications. She speaks frequently on topics affecting business and the leaders that run them.
Linda is the ultimate professional, but she finds a casual, personalized approach more effective than a stiff and formal one. She includes a No Pantiihose Clause in her contract. You want it formal – the fee goes up!
