Lynnea Brinkerhoff, an International Coach Federation (ICF) Professional and Board Certified Coach, brings 25 years serving in operational and strategic roles in hospitality, telecommunications, wilderness-based education and in the medical innovation investment arena. She found a natural role as counsel those to the power to affect change, always seeking those who have a ‘positive dissatisfaction with the status quo’.

She focuses on leaders in transition who are seeking greater results and satisfaction in both life and purpose-driven work. She has authored in seminal Organization Development texts and journal articles in areas ranging from the neuroscience of leadership to organizational alignment, emotional agility and whole system transformation (WST). Lynnea has a unique ability to put people at ease, to sense into their unspoken aspirations and fears and, using a strengths based, no-nonsense approach, turn them into concrete operational results. Lynnea invites people to see their repeating patterns of operating, the needs of their stakeholders and to choose the most effective path forward to accomplish their mission.
