Our Story

The L2L - Link to Leadership adventure began on the trails while we trained and competed on an all-girl adventure racing team. We had to link our physical skills with our mental skills in order to succeed.  We were not the most talented team, however, we trusted one another, knew how to communicate effectively, and committed to the training and hard work needed to compete. As a diverse team, we had our own individual talents and weaknesses. Cohesion was necessary,  in order to compete we had to be aligned, and we had to finish together. Throughout the years we trained and competed, we were often discouraged. We didn't give up or give in to the challenges that got in the way.  We knew we could navigate through unpredicted obstacles, scale walls, run and bike while in pain and frightened.  We kept a united front, supported one another, and challenged each other to be our best.  We had all of the components of a high-performing team and we were winners!

We have decades of experience working on teams and for teams. The combination of our education, experience, compassion, and competitive edge, enabled us to provide empowering leadership development programs, life-changing personal coaching, and engaging team development workshops where teams learn how to work better together.

We are excited about where we are today and look forward to our journey ahead. We provide the best programs and solutions to enable people to tap into their potential and thrive.

Our Team Learned So Much

L2L – Link to Leadership provided a team development workshop where we learned more about our team and how we all work and communicate differently. They gave us tools to better our communication and become a more united and cohesive team.

Coaches are a lot of fun to work with

Helene and Lynne with L2L are a big part of the success of our company. In the past, we have struggled to develop a clear mission and nurture a culture that supports that mission. They took the time to truly understand our business and unique challenges — then provided a safe space for us to explore the best path moving forward. Helene and Lynne are sharp, approachable, results-oriented…and a lot of fun to work with. We look forward to a long, prosperous relationship with L2L. Thank you!
