Hi, I'm Lynn Carnes. My official title is Executive Coach, focusing deeply on leadership.  My unofficial title is "Professional Unleasher", focusing on unleashing YOU. If you believe you have to choose between performing under pressure and having work life balance, you might be making a false choice.  What if you need BOTH in order to get what you want?

There are two ways to approach your career

The first is to focus on proving you belong. It’s a never-ending race to the top that can cost you a good quality of life and your relationships. You may very well succeed in getting exactly what you asked for: when money, status, and achievement are your primary focus, they will make you their prisoner.

The trappings of success can keep you trapped.

The second is to become a true learner and focus on how you can constantly improve. No matter the outcome, you will consistently become stronger and better prepared for this fast-changing world.

You are going to be uncomfortable either way. The focus on proving yourself creates a hole you can never fill. The discomfort from learning feels more productive and rewarding. You might even find peace of mind.

Instead of chasing empty goals, my hope for you is a journey to unleash the true spirit within you.

Here's my story.

Fighting to make it to the top then realizing I could have a great life - TODAY

Raging Bitch to Engaging Coach

Oct 19, 2015

The Voice of Authority

Recently I caught myself second guessing a text I had sent. When I really looked at the process of “second guessing”, I realized that something else all-together was happening. I was explaining myself to myself in my head. But it wasn’t really me I was explaining myself to. What the heck did I just say? […]
