Client's Testimonials

New Models of Person Centered Care

I have worked closely with Linda Provenza for over two years in our efforts to improve the quality of nursing homes in New York City. Linda has provided on-site consultation to teams of management and direct-care staff and has participated in the development of large-scale leadership training.

Linda brings a unique combination of knowledge, skills, and talents to her work. She has a strong foundation in organizational development theory and practice models, as well as an ability to assess clients’ needs and their readiness to in engage in personal growth. Her customized interventions are infused with her experiences in international cultural diversity, performance arts, and complementary therapies—all of which support her strong commitment to social justice.

In her work in the field of health care, Linda has enabled nursing home staff to develop skills in communication, teamwork, project planning, leadership, and more that have resulted in improved quality of life for frail elderly and disabled adults who reside in nursing homes. Linda’s interventions have also resulted in improved job satisfaction and improved labor-management relationships.

Linda’s approaches incorporate her sincere respect for the contributions of all individuals and their ability to grow and impact others. If you’re interested in effecting meaningful, lasting change, you need to meet Linda Provenza.
