About the DLE: Gen Now Retreat Sponsor
Linda Dulye, founder and president of Dulye & Co. thrives on helping companies and their employees go spectator free.
Since 1998, Dulye & Co. has partnered with Lockheed Martin, Rolls-Royce, Tyco, CIGNA, Cardinal Health, United Technologies, Bobcat, the Army Corps of Engineers and other respected organizations to bring out the best in their people through communication, collaboration and change practices that build lasting engagement. The firm’s award-winning Spectator-Free Workplace™ programs have delivered measurable gains in productivity, retention and morale.
Prior to starting her company, Linda held leadership positions in corporate communications and change management for General Electric, Duracell, Allied Signal, and Public Service Electric and Gas. Active coach, author and speaker on leadership development and millennial engagement, Linda has been a columnist for Fox News Business and featured in major media, including The Wall Street Journal, Forbes and Industry Week.
Linda has pursued her passion of bringing out the best in young professionals — establishing in 2008 the Dulye Leadership Experience (DLE). This premiere professional development and networking program has inspired hundreds of new, experienced and aspiring managers to get unstuck in their career ownership. The annual DLE Gen Now Retreat—held in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts–delivers actionable strategies and gritty advice from a dynamic, driven and diverse network of corporate executives, emerging entrepreneurs and respected thought leaders. The program’s special events, online learning, career coaching, nationwide alumni network and training tools cultivate confidence, skills and connections for professional and life success.
Raised in New York’s Hudson Valley, Linda worked in her family’s commercial printing and newspaper businesses from youth to college years. She earned degrees from Syracuse University (B.A.) and Drew University (M.A.). She began her professional career as a daily newspaper reporter in greater Philadelphia.
Linda and her husband, Roger, enjoy lake living in the Berkshires (MA) with visiting family (3 grown children) and rescued animal and bird companions. Active in her community, she serves on the board of the Pittsfield Economic Revitalization Corporation—and volunteers as an academic tutor, a hospital pastoral minister, a greeter at the world-renowned Tanglewood Music Center, a leader in the African Catholic community and a local radio announcer. Committed to be fit, Linda rows, cycles, spins, swims, and SUPs. She is on the board of Berkshire Community Rowing and a member of Berkshire Business & Professional Women.
A popular speaker at industry conferences, corporate seminars and academic symposiums, Linda shares her content at www.dulye.com.
