DR. LYN BOYER
Welcome and thank you for checking out my story.
I am LYN BOYER a leadership coach and author. I love to support and challenge aspiring, new and experienced leaders as they strive to find personal and professional success and satisfaction.
Through blogging, coaching and my Leader Lab, I indulge my passion to promote and support leaders. In addition, I enjoy connecting like-minded leaders who network, share and support one another.
I began my career in education as a teacher and then a school administrator. I gained enormous satisfaction in my role as the principal of a large public high school in Florida.
In preparation for this position, I began a quest to determine what makes the greatest difference in success of organizations. I became convinced that effective leadership is the key. That conviction has colored my work since that time.
When I moved into the school district office, I served as Coordinator of Leadership Development and gained coaching certification. I later taught in University of South Florida's Educational Leadership Program.
In 2011, I collaborated with Lisa Levinson and Doris Reeves-Lipscomb to establish Women's Learning Studio, a virtual community for women to learn, lead and connect online.
My philosophy is that leadership is more than what a person does; it is who he or she is. To that end, I have focused on what I call Affective Leadership℠--the factors that allow leaders to make personal connections and build strong relationships: emotional intelligence, leadership presence, trust building and intentional language.
My book Connect: Affective Leadership℠ for Effective Results is available in bookstores and online. It explores those topics and offers practice activities to enhance essential leadership skills. In the last few years, I have focused on the topic of JOY-- how to gain it and how to spread it. This is the link to my e-book, Intentional Joy , which you can download.
I love to combine my interests in travel, photography and green living, which I share with readers through blogs and images on this site. I live joyfully in a family compound in Sarasota, FL with six other adults, three small children, two needy dogs, some ducks and an occasional snake. In addition, I continue to create and promote leadership content.
