“I have worked with Lynne Copp for the last three years and I can honestly say that Lynne’s coaching expertise has changed my life! Without exception she has enabled me to ‘unlock’ my potential and find solutions in all aspects of my life – whether that is dealing with life changing events or complex work situations. Her knowledge of how the mind works and coaching tools, techniques & models is phenomenal and this has helped me to make very positive changes in all walks of life. It has also meant that I have learnt a huge amount and therefore built up my expertise in areas of organisational development and coaching. I would recommend Lynne to anyone who wants to work with a brilliant and inspiring coach.”
Senior Leader NHS England
“When I first met Lynne I was trapped in a nightmare job that had completely taken over my life; affecting my health, personal relationships and family life – however, the biggest problem was I didn’t appreciate there was a problem!
With a positive and thoroughly professional approach Lynne helped me regain my confidence and self-esteem, enabling me to put matters in perspective, identify what needed fixing and to turn my life around. It was not always easy, yet Lynne’s support was unwavering, offering wisdom and a gentle guiding hand.
I would recommend Lynne as a coach to anyone who has found themselves backed into a corner thinking there is no way out, because there is, and Lynne will help you find your way.”
“My coaching sessions with Ali have been of enormous assistance to me and extremely pleasurable. She has really supported me during a pivotal time in my career as my role was coming to end as a result of organisational change and closedown. Each session enabled me to really identify, challenge and tease out the things that are important to me; such as my key strengths, motivators, skills, aspirations and achievements.
I discovered the things I’d like to do more of, and also those I don’t either like, or recognise as playing to my strengths. The net result has been a tangible plan for the future, which I know will bring out the best in me and most importantly, be great fun – thank you!”
Director, Yorkshire NHS
“It has been an absolute delight to work with Lynne and Ali; they have boosted my personal morale but most importantly given me a team. I started with a group of disparate senior managers who neither recognised their relationship to each other, nor their relationship with me (a new role). This was worsened by organisational factors that created barriers to our effective working and that remain beyond our control. After just two team sessions, supported by a number of confidential 1:1s with each of my TEAM, things have changed beyond recognition.
I can honestly say I have a team that I can now rely on – we work side by side and support each other. Wow! Still so much to do and I hope that Lynne and Ali will continue to help us in some of that. I recommend them wholeheartedly.”
Director, Sheffield CCG
“The CCG has worked with the Worklife Company on a number of occasions including full team time outs and a tailored development programme for our senior managers. Following a brief discussion about our requirements we have left everything to the team at the Worklife Company and they have delivered beyond our expectations. The sessions have not only been productive and useful but also lots of fun, which is what makes them relevant and enjoyable. Feedback from the CCG team has always been positive and everyone now looks forward to the next session. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
“The Worklife Company believes in creating a great company to work for and a great company to do business with. I have experienced this, in practice, in every way whilst working with The Worklife Company. Lynne and Ali work alongside us allowing us to develop our talent and skills to retain within the business. They are exceptionally responsive, insightful and customer focused. With every contact, intervention and development I have felt understood, supported and challenged. The degree to which this has been done has been measured, focused and with exceptional professional delivery.
The Worklife Company has worked with our CCG customers in the same way building credibility and confidence. They have the unique ability of providing a credible evidence base and extensive understanding of how people work in organisations. They bring together the soft and hard elements of organisational development in equal strength.
The organisation has a strong values base and this comes across in all they do. They are honest, professional, creative and add exceptional value to the individuals and teams they work alongside. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Lynne on our organisations strategy and plan, which enables us to provide joined up solutions for joined up commissioning for our customers.
I am pleased to recommend The Worklife Company to others and would be more than willing to share examples of the outcomes of the work we have done and continue to do together.”
Amanda Wilcock, Director of Human Resources and Organisational Development
“I have known Lynne Copp as a supplier to Birmingham City Council for the past six years. Her integrity, honesty and sense of loyalty to her customer is undoubted. She is a dedicated supplier who has a strong focus on delivering excellence to all of her colleagues, customers and the wider community. All of her training, coaching and consulting is done with the highest levels of integrity, empathy and innovation and she is always clearly focused on the impact and correct outcomes for the betterment and improvement of businesses and people she works with. She is a true role-model for the businesses she works with; creating a culture of honesty, creativity, open communication and consideration of others. She is inclusive and respects the needs and differences of others and this quality has resulted in unparalleled support from Birmingham businesses for all of her projects. She is a highly respected and caring individual, whose dedication to her work makes her popular and respected by all of those that she comes in contact with. Lynne’s continued involvement in the Birmingham Best Business Awards for Worklife Balance is worth recognition. She gave her time, expertise and support unconditionally. She is willing to share best practice and has helped me to ensure that the awards went from strength to strength.
Lynne is one of the most honest and respectful people I have ever come in contact with. She is empathetic and inspires action in others. She takes time to listen, provide feedback and coaches people to improve both themselves as well as their business. She is a fun and engaging communicator and her approachable style creates trust and safety for delegates who are often nervous about attending training programmes or coaching.“
Associate Director, Birmingham City Council
“Lynne has provided exciting and influential support to NHS South CSU through both her work with us on our staff engagement, our business set up and executive support and in her role with us as a Lay member, providing invaluable advice and guidance around business development and reminding us to keep staff involved and engaged as we progress. In her upbeat, engaging and energetic style she has delivered some excellent sessions at staff events, helped us create and commission programmes that are fit for our future direction, provide relevant and contemporary content and really help us work twoards being a Great Place to Work. On a personal level she is supportive, focussed and helps sustain self belief and confidence, and the ability to see the positive, assess personal imapct and generally ask soul searching questions that drive our own understanding of ourselves. An impressive woman all round!“

“Lynne has been a valuable coach to a number of mangers within my team. She has the wonderful ability of helping people to articulate their goals then customising her support to help you achieve them.
She has also worked with the whole team to define our vision ensuring everyone feels involved throughout the process. It has been a pleasure to work with Lynne.“
Director, Global Hotel Brand
“Lynne has been a Personal Development Coach for me over the past year. At first I wasn’t sure what to expect from coaching, but I needn’t have been concerned. Lynne’s style and approach put me at ease straight away. My coaching sessions were enlightening, inspiring and I eagerly looked forward to our weekly meetings. She is highly professional, insightful, empathetic and very non-judgemental. She maintained my confidentiality throughout, respected my needs and guided me towards so much self-awareness. Her business skills and corporate background meant that she was comfortable with the context of my work, but it was her coaching approach that allowed me to learn so much about myself and take the action that I needed to take to improve my leadership skills. When one reaches the top of an organisation, it can become quite isolating, having a coach like Lynne, who would just listen and facilitate me to come up with my own solutions was of true benefit. She was a good sounding board and helped me to gain confidence in my own leadership skills. I would recommend coaching to every leader, and would definitely recommend Lynne. “
