“I recently completed Dr. Helmer’s course in Leadership as part of my attempts to find a new direction in my career and build on established skills. Not only did I learn a lot about “cutting edge” information with regard to self analysis in all spheres of life and the process of setting goals and objectives but it also gave me the tools to achieve the goals. The course was personalized to my particular needs as I’m sure it would be to any client. I feel so much better equipped and confident to work in this “new world” where medicine and the health care industry come together. It was one of the best things I’ve done for personal and professional advancement.”

Dr. Helmer is “… one of the most effective physician leaders I have had the privilege to work with (and I work with many physician leaders). She has a wonderful ability to diagnose problems and develop clear approaches to solving those problems. Her interpersonal skills serve her well. I would recommend her to any organization needing medical staff or physician leadership improvement. She would serve as a terrific mentor.”

“The Leadership Training that I took with Dr. Lynn Helmer has been a tremendous help in both my life and ministry. The course not only challenged me and motivated me to become a better leader, but has given me the tools to do so. Since I completed the course several important and necessary projects have been completed. Personally, I feel better equipped to do the job I was called to do and many people have had very positive comments about the changes they’ve seen both in me and in the church.”
