Lynn is great. I hired her on a 1×1 personal coaching basis. The main objective I was seeking was achieved in half the time. The other half, she helped me to think beyond my current self and find new potential. She is very sharp, and does an outstanding job listening and responding. Her recommendations have always been in-line with my needs. I am already referring her to friends and peers.
