How her journey began
As part of her career growth, Lynne had the opportunity to become a member of a high performing leadership team for a “pilot” division of a Fortune 100 Company. The team built a highly innovative team-based manufacturing facility, resulting in benchmarking requests by many Fortune 100 companies and training houses.
This was a start-up. The team built the business from the “ground up”. Not only did the team build the manufacturing plant to support the organization’s goals, it also designed and implemented a culture that would support a high performing team environment.
Concurrently, Lynne was attending Pepperdine’s M.S. Organization Development Degree Program. Therefore, many theoretical processes that she learned at Pepperdine were applied in the company’s “learning lab” environment.
Success became the destination
The team was quite successful in its endeavors.
One of the team’s engineers analyzed the business success as a topic for her Master’s Thesis and compared the productivity with the manufacturing plant that previously built the product. She measured a 50% increase in productivity over an 18-month period of time in comparison to the original manufacturing plant.
The business processes were eventually tried in other parts of the organization and resulted in similar successes.
How Lynne was transformed as a leader
Lynne heard one message loud and clear that made a difference: it was vitally important for “every voice to be heard.” By doing so, the team created commitment and a common vision among all of its employees and streamlined work processes to meet rigorous goals.
As a leader, Lynne learned that team members can “breathe easier” if they get their authentic voice heard in the work place – then they can better own what they help to create!
Once Lynne had this experience, it became her passion and her life’s work to help other leaders transform. She created her consulting business, Lynne Brown and Associates, LLC, in 1996. Her products evolved as a result of the research, design, and implementation of systems that worked.
The mission for her business is that “every voice is heard”. She helps leaders hear their own voices and discover their own authenticity; this helps them create a culture of trust and collaboration.
Lynne’s dream is to transform leaders and organizations to be their best and most successful while bringing joy into the workplace.
