"After interviewing 5 other mentor coaches I chose Lyn Allen to be my mentor in 2005. I have worked with her ever since except for very brief breaks. It is almost hard to put into words what Lyn has done for me over the years. Of course there are the concrete steps such as; how to coach, the practice building and the do’s and don’t of coaching but that was only the beginning.
Lyn has walked beside me as I journeyed into the unknown of myself. She assisted me to explore my own spirituality, values and ideals about life. I feel more prepared to tackle all of life now that I know myself better. I remember saying to Lyn (the first time we coached together) that I had no idea what she was going to coach me on, because except for my job, I was very happy in my life. I could almost hear her smile on the other end of the phone knowing that my life was about to be changed forever. Little did I know what the next 4 years would hold as I grew in leaps and bounds as a person and as a coach.
I have recommended Lyn to other coaches over the years. Many have received all the gifts she has to offer. I will continue to recommend her and feel she is a very valuable mentor at Coach Inc."
"I experienced rapid growth both personally and professionally. Personally, I expanded my capacity and personal foundation to carry the "weight" of my BIG VISION. Lyn's masterful and humble presence was a fabulous role model for me and the type of coaching and impact I want to have on my world. Her ability to fully engage in the clients agenda and to hold them accountable for what they "say" and "don't say" with love and compassion was a gift to experience. Her willingness to check-in, ask for permission, and hold a mirror in a masterful way, were fabulous modeling behaviors. Lyn clearly demonstrates a level of mastery around the coaching competencies I have not seen in ANY other Master Certified Coach. Her ability to listen to my coaching and help me understand both the level at which I was performing and guide me to the next step to enhance my ability was a privilege to both experience and watch. As I move on to the next phase of my coaching journey, I hope Lyn will be able to take pride in her role as the one who brick-by-brick, led me to create the foundation on which I now stand.
"Having Lyn as my coach for the past year has been the catalyst for tremendous growth, both personally and professionally. Not only did my business triple during the time we worked together, it all happened so easily and enjoyably that it now seems absolutely natural to be at this current level of productivity and success. Lyn helped me to savor each moment, while consistently moving forward."
"You have helped me unveil my gifts and encouraged me to confidently use them. Situations which previously pushed my buttons no longer affect my productivity or the quality of my life. Not only are you a master communicator and an excellent model, you're a healer and a hoot, working alongside me to define and redefine a wonderful life!"

"Like a bat using sonar, Lyn seems to be able to echolocate precisely what I want and need at the deepest level of my soul. In the year we've been working together, we've been able to use that information to help me make major enhancements in my life and achieve major successes in my career. Lyn's guidance is always spot-on and her attitude is always genuine, loving, and supportive. Being able to turn to such a wonderful sounding board week after week has without a doubt been a primary reason for my rapid advancement in so many areas."
"Lyn helped me in every area of my life: from starting my own business to consolidating chores. She has helped me handle specific client situations, strengthen relationships and especially, take extremely good care of myself without feeling guilty. Her gentle strength helped me to accomplish much more than I would have by myself, but more importantly, she helped me be gentle with myself. I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone."
