Lynda Cormier is the visionary behind the foundational philosophies of GIA Wellness, a sought-after inspirational speaker, author, business executive and leadership expert, as well as a joyful wife and mother. Lynda is one of the most inspiring and successful women-entrepreneurs in North America. As the only female facilitator of legendary Coach John Wooden’s Success Principles, it comes as no surprise that Lynda’s signature “Breakthrough Personal Development Program” for adults, and her “Roots And Wings Movement” for teens & young adults have been beyond inspirational and transformational for the thousands of people that have participated in them. Lynda believes that “we can never outperform our self esteem, but we can transform the world by empowering teenagers and adults to see their true potential and help them to aspire to be their best. Teenagers are very vulnerable, so the stronger their sense of self, the greater their chances of setting goals and actually reaching them. Having core values and learning basic leadership skills at a young age fosters personal responsibility, as well as respect for self and others”.
