See what others have to say about Delynn
Delynn has served as my personal coach for nearly five years and I have participated in three Authentic Living Retreats she has conducted. As the de facto leader of a 3rd generation family business facing challenges related to family, friends, career, and personal well being, I have benefited from Delynn's guidance.
“We brought Kaley and Delynn in to better understand ourselves, our personalities, our effect on those around us, and help us become better leaders. The Enneagram has resonated immediately, in no small part because of Delynn and Kaley.”
“From our top executives and terminal managers to our dispatchers and shop managers, all supervisors in our company have attended workshops led by Delynn and Kaley, and the results have been nothing short of astonishing.”
“Delynn completely understands YPO members and YPO Forum. But much more than that, her skills and talents in bringing about transformation for members and forums are exceptional. The exercises and knowledge she brings has been gathered over many years of specific experience and a relentless, ongoing pursuit of continuing education to the field of group facilitation and personal development work.”
“Delynn is an exceptionally gifted facilitator, and under her guidance our Forum has reached significantly deeper levels of sharing, openness, and trust. Delynn has guided us regularly through many types of formal "trainings" e.g. the Enneagram and other models, but what most distinguishes her leadership of our group is her ability to guide us through the less formal moments of updates, presentations, general discussion, and sharing.”
“My work with Delynn has really been a journey of self-awareness, personal growth, alignment, transitions, and challenges. The journey has not always been easy, but it has been rewarding, fun and humbling. I am grateful for for Delynn’s help and guidance over the past seven years. My work will continue and would recommend her to any forum or individual who wants to grow and live in a more meaningful way.”
“Delynn Copley has been an invaluable resource for our entire family. Working with Delynn for over 10 years, I have experienced tremendous personal growth and strengthened family relationships that mean so much. Delynn is a master at teaching and guiding in an open, balanced way that does not put pressure on the individual, allowing for growth at one's own pace.”
“Delynn’s sessions have been a big hit not only in our small executive group but also at our organization as a whole. She is deeply knowledgeable, experiential, interesting and fun as she delves into some deep matters of the psyche, individual growth and interpersonal relationships. In particular, her sessions on the Enneagram provide one of the most insightful tools I have ever used for enhancing group dynamics.”
