Life Not only is this month the start of a new year, but it’s also the kickoff of a new decade! It’s hard to believe it’s already time for New Year’s resolutions, but I’m ready to run headfirst into making them and tackling whatever challenges 2020 throws our way. This year, I’ve decided my focus is going to be on my tribe: the hardworking employees who make Lynnpro tick. Cheri and I already do what we can to put our employees first and make sure they have the opportunity to live their lives after work, but for 2020, we want to take that to another level. Our goal is to help them become better, smarter, happier people while we also become better ourselves. That’s a big mountain to climb, but, luckily, I’ve had help doing it. Two years ago, I joined the entrepreneurship coaching program Strategic Coach and started working with a wonderful program advisor named Amy Gray. Amy has given me the tools I needed to communicate my vision for Lynnpro’s future and work with my team to make it happen. That said, I know she can explain the process better than I can, so I’ve given her the rest of this newsletter to do it. Take it away, Amy!

beginning, it was clear Jeff had big dreams, and his vision for Lynnpro was unique.
worked closely with him on over these last few years is communicating that vision in a clear way, igniting the people in his organization to rise up, improve their performance, and follow him. It might sound a bit cheesy, but I truly believe Jeff is like a rough-cut diamond. When it comes to inspiring his employees, he isn’t a softy or anyone’s therapist, but he believes everyone has the ability to do what he’s done: rise up from a challenging background and succeed. Strategic Coach offers specific tools, like The Impact Filter, The Strategy Circle, and The Experience Transformer, which have helped propel Jeff’s vision forward. Together, he, Cheri, and I are working to unite Lynnpro even more firmly behind a single vision for 2020. I can’t wait to see where the new year takes us!
Every time I speak to Jeff, I’m struck by his focus on improving the lives of his employees. A lot of people come to Strategic Coach to learn how to create self-managing companies because they want to expand their personal freedom, but Jeff is one of those rare business owners who believes everyone should be freer. In that spirit, he’s started initiatives for his employees like Learn to Earn, during which he offered to purchase his employees any personal development or business books they wanted to read and gave them incentives for reading them. He has even enrolled several members of his team in our programs here at Strategic Coach, elevating them to become better leaders!
Hello, Lynnpro readers! I’m honored to have this space to tell you all a bit about Strategic Coach and Jeff’s journey. Two years ago, Jeff and I started meeting in person at workshops in Chicago and monthly on virtual coaching calls to discuss his goals and hopes for his company and how he could make them happen.
