Lynelle jumped headlong into a lifetime love and passion for training and development two weeks after graduating college. The Dean of Business at a local college sought her expertise and talents. Within a week, Lynelle was leading five retail management classes. She knew she needed to develop a style that would instantly put students at ease, help them connect with theories and concepts, and be inspired to do their best work. One of the best pieces of advice came from her dad, a lifelong educator, who simply said, “Entertain them”. She has embodied that ever since.
Today, Lynelle’s signature style of creating memorable, results-oriented learning experiences is transforming teams and helping leading organizations reach their strategic goals. Lynelle has the unique ability to take “big picture ideas” and transform them into realistic, simplified training and development opportunities with immediate work place application. Participants build confidence to reach beyond their comfort zone and truly experience growth that leads to positive change and results.
Lynelle’s learning environments are known for being innovative and energetic; a haven for highly engaged participants where they thrive and gain confidence, both professionally and personally. She drives active participation and experiential learning where laughter and trust abound. Clients and leaders are engaged through storytelling and humor while participating in a collaborative learning environment where they are empowered to share their own stories and work together with their peers, team members, and senior leaders.
