Strengths Strategy Coach
Certified Association Executive
Certified Personal Brand Strategist
Lyne Tumlinson helps corporate and association executives shift leadership teams’ energy-sucking conflicts and silo mentalities into engaged, high-performing focus. Now an award-winning ICF-certified coach, she leans on leadership experience at the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA), cross-cultural experience at the University of Kansas, and outplacement experience with a private HR consultant in Overland Park, along with studies in psychology and professional coach training.
Tumlinson pursued leadership coaching and founded Lift Team Coaching after witnessing high-level teams “stuck” without vision (often divided with a weak or “toxic” person within the group), leaders struggling to take their organization through change while trying to keep staff members engaged, while keeping an eye on the bottom line.
In her co-created programs, Lyne uses naturally energetic content delivery and intuitive coaching to facilitate executives’ ”inside-out” understanding of themselves, their personal brand and its impact on organizational goals/vision. A recent client, in working to develop an executive overview – where he plans to go personally and professionally over the next decade or so – remarked that Tumlinson helped him “think outside of the daily grind,” that he felt “more engaged, alert and alive talking with my senior team,” and “broke through my comfort zone when having key conversations.”
Tumlinson has worked with executives at US and international companies Alpha Phi Omega, National Auctioneers Association, World Golf Foundation, TPC Scottsdale, Desert Mountain Golf Club and National Golf Course Owners Association.
What inspires Tumlinson is her own vision of a world where people are excited to work together with purpose; jumping out of bed to the thought of “Good morning, God!” as opposed to the oft-expressed, “Oh my god, it’s morning.” Developing effective leadership to advance staff toward common goals connects to her passion for making beautiful music as director of her church a cappella choir where she also guides each singer to find their own voice and blends them into the best possible harmonies.
Tumlinson’s multi-faceted interests and formal knowledge in personality, cultural diversity, and leadership development have been the perfect storm of preparation for her true calling. Tumlinson earned a Master’s Degree from the University of Kansas and has studied Psychology, Business, and Russian studies. She completed professional training with the Coach Training Institute, is an ACC credentialed coach with the International Coach Federation, with Reach Personal Branding certifications in Personal Brand and Social Branding Strategies.
