This workshop should be required for anyone looking for employment.
Linda’s comments on the John Polish radio program on how she was able to adapt into Saudi culture were given with humor, wit, and intelligence. She is a fabulous storyteller. Linda is an asset for companies helping their employees adapt to any environment.
I greatly enjoy listening to Linda on ‘Finding Your Happiness’ radio show. What I took away from it the most is that we could be saying we have certain goals but those goals don’t speak out in our environment. I will definitely be front and center for Linda’s next lecture.
All I can say is that Linda is amazing! She brings a wealth of experience and expertise to her work with organizations on how to go from survival to "thrival" mode in the international workplace. Linda has not only studied how to succeed as an American doing business abroad, she has lived it for much of her life. I feel more confident accessing the international market with Linda as my guide.
Last week was one of our best radio shows to date. Linda taught us how to be a chameleon and shared her expertise on how to integrate into a new environment. Whether you are moving to a new country or just decorating your personal space you should seek the wise counsel of Linda Lynch-Johnson.
Very eloquent speaker. Easy to listen to and very informative. A fabulous eye-opener.
I have to tell you how listening to your life story was very fascinating. As someone that is coming from the Middle East and growing up in the Israeli "West Bank" I felt connected to your story and wanted to hear more! I learned a lot from your pretension today, especially about your important key - "change" the we need to change in order to fit in a new place, such as new country or a new job, and to know and learn more in order to succeeded.
The information you shared could potentially be critical in order to keep the business running smoothly and successfully. At first, I was a bit confused by what Adapter Factor meant. As the presentation went on, I understood completely and fully this is the key to surviving. As a manager or as a person, the ability to adapt and make the best out of any new situation is what makes a difference between success or a failure. I will always try to adapt like the chameleon you used as an example.
Your stories were really inspiring and I loved what you had to say. During your presentation you gave us a piece of advice that had never occurred to me before, that we have to make change work for us not against us. You also talked about how most overseas business ventured fail because people cannot adapt to their new surroundings. Your presentation about the Adapter Factor has really changed my mind on my doubt and made me feel more confident of my future adventures.
I greatly appreciated that you would take the time to share your experiences and your keys to business success. After your presentation I am ready to adapt to these changes and embrace them. The future is daunting but your words in that class have given me a new drive towards experiencing my senior year and everything that will follow to its fullest.
Your first hand, real world knowledge is priceless, and I very much appreciate the words you shared with us. When you began to share about the chameleon, it was an analogy I had never heard before. We are to be like the chameleon, not only to survive, but to thrive. And in the realm of business, that is certainly my goal. Again, thank you. It’s not often I have the privilege to come across professionals such as yourself.
I thought your idea of using a chameleon was a genius idea. I can see how people can easily relate to it. Also I admire your way of staying positive and overcoming the obstacles that you have. It makes me want to rethink about the way I see things. If it was your goal to affect at least one person, you have done your job plus more.
