Individual Coaching

We can work on what’s in front of you, while also focusing on your long-term professional and personal goals.

Indivdual coaching is between you and me.

Let me share what an individual coaching engagement looks like for you.

First, we identify what your long-term goals and outcomes are for professional and personal development. Knowing where you want to go helps you make better decisions about the current challenges you are facing. Together, we create solutions for you to test out and adopt.

Our direct-pay individual coaching programs provide total freedom to identify what you want to work on and how you go about doing it.

Here are some typical scenarios for indivdual coaching:

Additional Services

Sometimes at the start of our working together it is helpful to learn more about yourself through assessments. There are two assessments that may be most useful: a 360-degree assessment such as Benchmarks or Hogan and the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument which identifies your thinking preferences. 

I am certified to administer and deliver results on these assessments.

Aligning Values and Career Goals

I had the opportunity of working with Lynn through the Leadership Institute of the Society of Behavioral Medicine. I selected Lynn as my coach because of her extensive experience in executive coaching.

Lynn was great at helping me see myself in a different light. She helped me identify mental stumbling blocks that were impeding my forward progress as a leader and encouraged me to clarify my values and career goals. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Increased Confidence and Self-efficacy

As an HR executive I am familiar with the styles of different types of executive coaches, and would highly recommend Lynn’s approach for any individual looking to go deeper and grow. As a client, I appreciated her expertise in the HBDI model and how through it she helped me get at the root of what was holding me back from starting down or continuing on a path toward my desired goals. She asked all the right questions to allow me to uncover what was needed to go forth with confidence and self-efficacy. Mindi Searle, Vice President Human Resources at Fairbanks Morse Engine

Aligning Professional Goals with Personal Values

I have first-hand experience when it comes to Lynn’s guidance in aligning professional goals with values. Her approach to ensuring client articulation of and action on goals, commitments, and follow-ups is crisp and results-oriented. She has a remarkable retention capacity when it comes to the details of her clients’ challenges and the evolution of thought-to-action over time. 

She ensures conflicts and challenges are not addressed in a summary fashion but ensures careful, honest, and intentional situation assessments. Where an absence of data or understanding is revealed, she challenges clients to engage in focused due diligence and personal re-evaluation of the circumstances. 

It is my pleasure to recommend Lynn Dessert.
