About Lynn Taylor

The CEO of Lynn Taylor Consulting, a workplace consulting firm, Lynn is a leading expert on hiring and career issues. Her goal is to help you humanize your workplace™ - an environment based on collaboration and an enriching work life. The result is a more positive, motivated workforce, and enhanced productivity.

When this approach is not followed, the results are underwhelming and all too common. Lynn sees this from an employee perspective daily and believes that employers can benefit greatly from research findings and what is often unspoken.

After sessions with Lynn, many managers later come forth and report the changes they have made to their own approaches. Results can be seen almost immediately, but over time, they translate into increased retention and greater ability to hire the best talent.

Lynn has a friendly and lighthearted approach, designed to help managers and employees work together in more productive ways. Her fundamental belief is that whether our age is two or 52, we all share the same human instincts, feelings and needs. So, not surprisingly, the antidotes for everyone are similar. Her Tame Your TOT community forum at is not just for employees, but for anyone who feels there are people in the organization who let the child inside them rule, not inspire them.
