Lynn offers great insight into people, business issues and strategy. Her best skill may be as a listener - coaching must be a two-way exchange to facilitate positive change - listening, then exploring those thoughts with pertinent advice is of tremendous value. I would highly recommend Lynn's executive coaching to any businessperson - you will be better focused and more thoughtful in your decisions.” - Terry Matthews, VP PC Financial – 2007
