In her own voice:
According to a recent Gallup Poll up to 70% of employees are
‘disengaged’ at work. That means they’ve checked out!
Throughout my career, I’ve seen hundreds of people torpedo themselves at work and in their lives simply because they weren’t passionate about the work they were doing or the boss or company where they worked. Many of those
I’ve observed, persistently “do work” but find themselves going
through the motions mostly checked out and in a rut. Others, simply
have bumped along in their careers and never really focused on what
they wish to accomplish and how they want to invest themselves in
their working lives.
Aristotle once said, “Where our talents and the needs of the world
cross, therein lies our vocation.”
A vocational calling is not simply doing something one finds pleasurable—if that were so, many would find that their true vocation was to play video games or sit at the pub betting on sports! Better is tuning into an intuitive vocational calling which becomes a way of working and serving in the world of work with
sincere joy and pleasure. Really showing up meaningfully.
My sweet spot is in helping you find your true calling so you can
dedicate your life to meaningful work that matters – to you, to others.

Executive Coach and Career Strategist
"I had the privilege of attending Lynden Kidd’s seminar, Success by Design. It was the
perfect synergistic combination of practicality and affirmative principles. I had made
myself fairly miserable in my quest to find the job that was the right fit for me and I was
noticing that my creativity and enthusiasm were waning. Lynden’s seminar inspired me
to take a risk and obtain training that places me in key position to advance my career.
Thank you Lynden!! "

passed to me in my life from now on."
Mary D. – Marana, AZ
"I have had the privilege of seeking counsel and coaching from Lynden over the past two
years. She always provides me with a perspective that is insightful and she makes me
think about things I initially overlooked. In all cases I leave our conversation with a
clearer vision of what my next step needs to be or how I should handle my roadblock to
success or happiness. The coaching I have received from Lynden can directly be linked
to my increased successes over the last two years. My life has been enriched by her
guidance and mentorship."

"I have worked and trained alongside Lynden Kidd for more than a year now in many
settings. Lynden is 100% present, understands needs quickly and is able to assess in
what direction the conversation, task or coaching should take. I find her insights right on
for not only my situations, but also for the situations of all those being coached. She has
a very intuitive and sensitive side to which she pays much attention and follows through
on when appropriate. She has helped me identify problem areas when I was having
difficulty putting my limitations to words. I would recommend working with her highly."

"Thank you so much Lynden for sharing so much leading edge wisdom! I really
appreciate your willingness to share your experience from your teachers. You are so
great at condensing and communicating a lot of material. In joy and gratitude."
Kathaleen S – Tucson, AZ
"I’ve been working with Lynden for about six months. We’ve had some awesome results
together and she has really helped me fly through the challenges of a divorce, job
search, getting my family on board with a move and landing work that pays me better
and allows me to use my best skills. With Lynden’s support, I’m leaving my current job,
elegantly, knowing my work was respected and appreciated and going into something
better…a far cry from how I felt when we first started working together."

HOW COACHING WORKS
FIRST - Set up one introductory appointment with a Coach and give coaching a try. See if you like it and the Claritypoint approach.
If you like it, you have a couple options:
Small Group Coaching - These groups have 4-6 women or men. The sessions are done by conference call, every other week for six months. (So you can do the program from the comfort of your home.)You spend 1.5-2 hours with your coach learning the material, having discussions and experiences together as a group. You also have daily homework in between sessions. This consists of a small reading assignment and some journal writing. Many people love the group format because they learn so much from each other and make some great friends. This is the most inexpensive way to experience coaching.
Executive Life Coaching - You can work with a coach one on one, meeting weekly to experience the Claritypoint process in it's most life changing format. You will gain rock-solid self-esteem, communication and relationship skills, time management, motivation repair, and cure your fear of failure forever. This process will be customized to fit your specific needs and schedule.
