Lynda L. Fudold has more than twenty years experience
assisting people in understanding one another in the business setting,
presenting themselves well, and solving business and interpersonal
She began her endeavors to 'make the world a better
place', believing that people simply needed to 'think better'.
So, after graduating from University of Maryland magna cum laude,
she pursued a Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Illinois
(Chicago). There, as a Teaching Assistant, she taught logic, along
with other courses, to undergraduates.
It soon became obvious to her that there was more
to the problems people have than logic. So, Lynda began a ten
year study of humanistic psychology, studying group process along
with Gestalt, and Transactional Analysis, as well as other models.
At the same time she was working with high profile, Fortune 500
customers inside a large corporation, so there were plenty of
opportunities to use, test and improve the skills she was developing.
Having already studied humanistic psychology she
discovered neurolinguistics, with it's communication and problem
solving models. After several years of studying NLP (neurolinguistics),
while still inside the larger corporation, she left the more traditional
'corporate life' to begin Advanced Communications Group to more
directly serve the needs she saw all around her.
Always the learner, she is currently a doctoral
student in Human Systems and Organizational Development at Fielding
She is a former Vice President on the Board of
Directors at Oasis Center in Chicago, and served as a member of
the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of the North
American Association of NLP. Lynda has been a guest on television
Through ACG, Lynda and her colleagues help client
companies improve interpersonal interaction, resolve conflicts,
as well as improve the art and skill of influence for better business
and interpersonal results.
Lynda believes that the first focus in business
is to 'Solve the Problem', and move forward toward our goals.
To achieve this, interpersonal respect and communication are musts,
because business is about getting things done through people.
How we perceive a situation and a person determine
how we experience that situation and person. Clarifying perceptions
and correcting misperceptions free us up to solve problems and
reach business and personal goals.
Keeping our focus on goals, developing human systems
that work well together, showing people precisely how to be more
effective with each other in today's complex business environment
are hallmarks of her work.
ACG, including Lynda and a number of like-minded
colleagues, have been doing this work since 1991.
