Client Reviews for Lynn Saboe

Lynn was absolutely the right executive coach at the right time in my career. Lynn helped me evaluate certain career opportunities and provided helpful feedback in order to position myself for future success. Lynn was also instrumental in suggesting techniques and facilitating the brainstorming of potential solutions to address several important and timely issues related to personnel and resource constraints. Always the consummate professional, Lynn was very pro-active in scheduling our coaching calls and holding me accountable. My sincere thanks to Lynn for her outstanding approach to coaching which had the effect of making each session feel like you were speaking with an old friend who wanted nothing more than to help you.

I had the opportunity to work with Linda Saboe through a management coaching program offered at my place of employment. From the outset, I found her a great listener and problem solver. Together we identified a set of priorities that I wanted her assistance to improve and/or resolve, as well as possible options. Over the course of a few months, we met regularly via telephone. Within that timeframe, Linda coached me to create, enact and start fine-tuning techniques to make me a stronger manager and employee in our organization. I was pleasantly surprised that working via telephone was not only easy for scheduling purposes, but that we could still build a strong rapport and sense of understanding. I appreciated her insights from more than 30 years of a government career and I truly felt she cared about my ongoing career success. Just like a top-notch athlete needs knowledgeable and caring coaches to have a successful career, so does any professional. Such coaches do not tell you what you ought to do, but rather, help identify all your resources, strengths and weaknesses to encourage and enable you to come up with a winning personalized career training program -- and that sums up my outcome of working with Linda.

During the transition into my new position as a Senior Executive for the Department of the Interior, I was fortunate to have established a connection with Lynn. Lynn quickly made me feel at ease, even though our meetings were all virtual. Lynn was always a supportive and reassuring presence to provide me feedback on managing difficult employees, what to expect from my new role as a Senior Executive, how to improve morale within my program area, and to provide goals for not only myself but how to effectively communicate new ideas and encourage critical thinking within my staff area and Senior Executive associates. I will attest, I endured some very difficult times during my time as Director, and Lynn always was there to provide a listening ear, and offer various ways of support to navigate through those tenuous times. Having retired from 30 years of federal service, Lynn was also there to assist me with that transition. And what a transition it is! I would highly recommend Lynn to anyone who is considering a professional career coach, regardless of whether you are just starting a career, or at the highest levels of management. Having Lynn in your corner will help build the confidence needed to take on great challenges!

Lynn Saboe has set a high bar as my first professional coach. She was quick to pick up on my changing professional goals. She was enormously supportive of my new direction and provided clear, practical, and useful advise to help me achieve my new goals. Thankfully, Lynn was super flexible and was available to talk when I had free time. Lynn was the perfect professional coach.

I am extremely grateful to my executive coach Lynn Saboe. When I met Lynn, I was drowning in my first senior executive position. Lynn was familiar with my career community, and provided me with insightful and constructive feedback. She helped me improve my leadership skills, better manage the expectations of my supervisor, and deal with my difficult employees. Lynn is professional, informative, trusting, intuitive, and easy to engage in meaningful conversations. Every session I had with Lynn was positive, and provided me with a clear plan until our next session. Her practical suggestions and encouragement were exactly what I needed to succeed as a senior executive..

Engaging Lynn Saboe as my executive coach enabled me to leverage my forty year career in the aerospace and defense industry to successfully transition to a senior government leadership position. Lynn brought significant government coaching and management experience to our discussions, posing the hard questions that led me to create an action plan that anticipated the organizational and cultural challenges that lay ahead, and to turn these into opportunities to effect positive change from day one. Her guidance early on provided the insight necessary to resolve a difficult personnel matter with exceptionally positive results for both the individual and the organization. What I most appreciated about working with Lynn was her ability to listen and effectively challenge me to develop executable plans that fit my style and experience, and to implement these plans in just two months. Thanks to her support, the quality and speed of my transition was substantially enhanced.
