"I have had the pleasure of knowing Lynn Kendall for the past four years. Lynn is a people person and has an uncanny ability to connect with people at the very core of their soul, and to bring out the positive in everyone. He is an honest person of great conviction and character. As a personal coach, he is encouraging and always brings out the best qualities a person has to offer."

"I first worked alongside Lynn Kendall as I collaborated with a group of leaders to successfully establish a regional, professional non-profit organization. I also seized the opportunity to work with him professionally as the marketing director of a non-profit organization where I worked. Lynn is an authentic leader and has a special way of connecting with people. He led a workshop for us for WISE, Inc. (We Inspire Support Empower), a nonprofit organization. The roundtable discussions were meaningful and extended far beyond the workshop. WISE members and workshop attendees rated it the highest of all events WISE had provided to date. Lynn has a remarkable ability to connect, to intuitively understand people and to inspire them to action."

"Lynn is a natural motivator and an exceptional mentor. I had the pleasure of working one on one with him over several months in a mentoring program last year. As a mentor, Lynn exceeded my expectations of the program. He has a natural ability to coach others and give constructive and positive feedback to help you grow professionally and personally. Lynn provided real life examples drawn from his vast experiences that helped guide me in some areas I wanted to improve upon. I would recommend Lynn to anyone looking for a life coach to grow and take that next step in your career or those just looking to become more self-aware and acknowledge and appreciate your own strengths."
