"Pat Lynch's On Call Consulting Service was exactly what I needed when I set out to develop a web survey to study the global lean product development community. She tightened up the survey questions, provided useful feedback on the study's confidentiality and data handling processes, and helped me resolve an issue with the sponsoring organization's Board of Directors that threatened to derail the study. I can't thank her enough for her responsiveness, insights and constructive criticism."

Katherine Radeka President

"I thought it would be impossible to find a consultant/coach who met all of the standards needed to complete my project at a high level, professionally, quickly, within my budget, and in ways that exceeded my expectations. The on-call service was the best fit for my needs. Working directly with Pat enabled me to create and deliver amazing results in a variety of areas. With Pat's help I was able to hit a deadline in delivering a powerful proposal, resulting in a much broader range of profitable business. Pat also coached me through a lifelong negative belief that turned me into a prolific writer.

If you need rapid results, no matter what the challenge, look no further: Pat Lynch at Business Alignment Strategies is, and will continue to be, the go-to person for our company."

Bill Corbett Founder
Addiction CEO

"Pat Lynch was a great strategic planning leader. The appreciative inquiry approach helped us as a group to focus better on our agency's skills and achievements and what we do well. It crystallized our thought process and helped us develop a clear strategic focus. By the end of the day, the entire team was on the same page in seeing where we wanted the agency to go, so that we could develop the map for getting there. Pat was very organized, and this enhanced our productivity, enabling us to accomplish a lot in one day. The process was a great lead-in to our second day, where we built upon the foundation Pat created to develop the actual five and ten-year goals for the agency. I highly recommend Pat and Business Alignment Strategies."

"Pat is the kind of professional that one comes in contact with rarely in life. Her insightful vision has helped me to see the value I truly have to offer my clients. She took the time to talk with me frankly, yet with such care you would have thought I was the only person she was focused on. She gave me pragmatic advice as how I could step out of the shadows and into the light to utilize my passion to help others in dealing with mental health issues the workplace. The time spent with Pat has forever changed the way I view the rewarding work I am fortunate enough to do."

"I wanted to follow up with you on the phone conversation we had about a month ago. Your coaching was very helpful. At that time, we talked about an upcoming discussion I needed to have with an employee. I was well prepared with the items you and I had discussed (behavioral requests I wanted to make, the impacts I saw/felt due to the current behavior). It went really well. I have seen a change in behavior, including willingness to take on projects and to accept feedback from others. I also feel that our relationship has improved. Thanks again for your input. It was very helpful to me."
