Client Testimonials

Non-Profit

“With incredible passion and focus on meeting customer needs, Carol Lynn has supported the Data Quality Campaign’s evolution from a virtual time-limited effort to a permanent non-profit education advocacy organization.

Working with each staff member to gain a better understanding of his/her working/learning styles and preference as well as that of their colleagues, and through in-depth coaching of our directors, Carol Lynn has helped us build a strong, team-oriented organization. When it came time to hire a deputy director, her knowledge of our team and her ability to provide actionable analysis of the candidates allowed us to make a perfect hire for our organization.

If you are looking for leadership coaching, management development, and/or team building, Courtney Consulting Group can provide great value to your efforts.”

— Aimee Rogstad Guidera, Executive Director, Data Quality Campaign

“Carol Lynn worked with the MIM leadership team as we were preparing to open our museum. She assisted the team in developing good working relationships while ensuring they were all focused on the mission of celebrating similarities and differences. Her sessions helped the team to develop a positive culture and environment for the entire MIM team. With a condensed opening schedule, she did an excellent job of bringing the team together and helping them to understand the goals and mission of MIM.”

— Bob Ulrich, Chairman, Musical Instrument Museum
