Executive Coaching

Company Sponsored
Executive coaching is an investment in your people and organization.


Executive coaching for C-Suite and senior level management is a private and confidential engagement. With 2400+ coaching hours, Lynn establishes rapport and trust with executives quickly and provides value added insights into their approaches, style, behaviors and actions.

The executives Lynn has coached have stepped into increasing levels of responsibility; integrating into new roles successfully.


It begins with a discussion to identify clear outcomes which may be defined by the company or yourself for the coaching engagement. While this may seem very simple, it requires that everyone – the coach, client and sponsoring organization be on the same page.

When working with Executive Coach Lynn Dessert,  her role does not replace or change your relationship with your boss. It is your responsibility to share your progress with your boss and company constituents, sharing the details you are comfortable disclosing. Once agreement is reached, the work begins with you (the client). Below, find the most common steps in a coaching engagement:

Establishing the Baseline

To measure how well you are doing against the agreed upon outcomes it is important to establish the baseline. Most often companies use 360◦ assessments when measuring leadership or personal style development. Lynn is certified in the Benchmarks, a 360-degree assessment from the Center for Creative Leadership or Hogan Instrument’s 360 assessment, two highly recognized and valued assessment tools. Assessments are administered at the beginning and sometimes end of the coaching engagements.

Assessing the Situation

Many executives need additional information to help them pin point what is not working. Lynn uses several industry standard assessment tools, including Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), and the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI). Additional feedback may be drawn from your boss, peers, and subordinates regarding your strengths and areas of opportunities. Together, we will identify and craft strategies to move to the level of mastery in your key development areas.

Establishing Clear Outcomes

With Lynn’s assistance, you will be able to clearly identify areas for development and attainable goals  that meet your specific outcomes – a proven approach to making changes a reality. You are in control of the actions you take and decisions you make in your personal and professional development. Together, we will create milestones and timelines to insure a smoother implementation.

Breaking through the Obstacles

How well do you receive feedback from your customers, subordinates, peers, and boss? Are you concerned about what others might think about your ideas before you have had time to flush all the details out? Lynn is your sanity check and sounding board for new ideas and approaches and will challenge your thinking enabling you to get past any blind spots that are impacting your performance and growth.

Opening the Door to Success

Knowledge and the ability to embrace change often gives individuals and organizations the courage and tools to successfully open the door to new opportunities. Your candor and openness with Lynn will provide quicker results. By recognizing and stopping self-defeating behaviors, you will take responsibility for yourself and results will happen!
