Lynn possesses that rare ability to quickly and succinctly recognize the underlying issues that need to be addressed. In my opinion, Lynn stands out among the many people that I have worked with during my many years as a manager, management consultant and coach as someone who is motivated by excellence for herself and those she works with.

Technical Project Manager, iBionics, Gatineau, Québec

I’ve had the privilege to be coached by Dana. She has a no-nonsense pragmatic style and is astute at quickly getting to “the meat of the matter” in any given coaching session. She treads softly when required but doesn’t linger there. She can have a razor sharp edginess when she notices an opportunity that might help move her client forward, and she won’t hesitate to hold your feet to the fire, nor will she let you off the hook until you confirm that an action plan is in place and that you have the resources to follow through. I have recommended her to others I care about because Dana is a coach that can get you results.

The Leading Right From the Start leadership program combines personalized coaching and interactive workshops in which you get to brainstorm with other leaders. It is very useful for any manager or anyone who has to work with people. Every workshop has been very useful to me.

Lynn is a woman with a passion for helping others to be their best. Through Lynn’s coaching, unique insight and inspiration, I have refined my leadership skills and my ability to navigate complex work issues. When I felt unsure, she used her skills to get me to strategically analyze the issues that needed to be tackled. She kept me focused and accountable. She knows exactly when to nurture and when to use tough love!

She has made a profound difference in my approach as a leader. She nurtured my ability to see where I was in the present moment and where I needed to go, which allowed me to turn my vision into reality. I can never thank Lynn enough for providing unwavering support, creating the space for ongoing introspection, and getting me to listen to my instincts and intuition.

Leading Right From the Start is a highly innovative program. You can stay in your office or somewhere quiet but still feel like you’re very much part of the group. You get not only the tools, information and competencies you need to develop as a leader but you also have a coach that will accompany you through the transition and implementation of all these new competencies. The tools we learn are excellent! Mimi Truong

Manager, Pharmacy, Hôpital Montfort, Ottawa, ON

Lynn Fuller was a management colleague and a valuable member of the Building Code Services branch management team at the City of Ottawa. Among her many responsibilities, Lynn was responsible to initiate and lead branch-wide strategic projects within a very operationally focused and male-dominated organization. Lynn’s out of the box and progressive thinking helped our branch solve operational issues in the most efficient way possible. Lynn effectively challenged management colleagues to reassess the status quo, which often meant using her substantial communication and influence skills where her approach was always clear, logical and effective. Lynn has a calm and logical method of communicating that truly connected and inspired me. Thank you, Lynn.

I truly feel that I have benefited greatly from these sessions.  The design of the course is a unique interactive platform where we meet with the other participants, share our experiences, relate to one another as leaders and support each other. I do feel that I am a better listener, more patient and understanding. I know my team has noticed a difference as well.
