We can work together to help you achieve your highest aspirations.
My name is Lynda Wallace, and I love what I do.
I’m a Certified Positive Psychology Coach offering career coaching, life coaching, and executive coaching. I meet with local clients in my sunny office in Montclair NJ, and with clients from around the world by phone or video. If you’re making changes in your life or work, or pursuing a significant goal, I believe you’ll find that I have the successful experience and specialized expertise necessary to help you get to where you want to go — even if you’re not yet sure where that is.
I won’t hesitate to jump in and work with you to actually get things done.
It’s what I do best, and my favorite part of being a coach.
Prior to becoming a coach, I was a senior executive with Johnson & Johnson, where I led a $1 billion global business including many of the world’s most iconic brands. I also spent several years as the head of Mergers & Acquisitions for J&J’s medical device companies. Eventually, I decided it was time to pursue my own highest aspirations, so I left to develop my second career as a coach and teacher.
I hold an MBA from the Wharton School, have researched and taught evidence-based coaching skills to hundreds of coaches worldwide, and am the author of the Amazon Best Seller, A Short Course in Happiness. My practice draws on my business experience and education as well as my expertise in Positive Psychology, a research-based branch of psychology that studies the nature and causes of genuine happiness and success.
I’ve worked with individuals from nearly every walk of life, including teachers, bankers, stay-at-home parents, attorneys, college students, executives, physicians, artists, business owners, writers, IT professionals, athletes, and just about anything else you could name. And I’ve coached leaders and teams from many of the world’s great organizations, both large and small, for profit and not-for-profit. Here are just a few.
Want to know more? There’s plenty on the site to explore, including information about my background as well as informative articles, information about fees, excerpts from my book, and directions to my office.
I hope you’ll get in touch to schedule a complimentary consultation so we can discuss what’s going on in your life, work, or business, and how we might approach a coaching engagement designed to help you achieve your highest aspirations.
A Short Course in Happiness
I wrote A Short Course in Happiness to offer readers a distillation of the essential research findings on the steps we can take to live happier, more meaningful, and more successful lives. I was surprised and delighted when it became a best-seller on Amazon.
I’m now writing my second book. Based on my work as a coach and teacher, it lays out a clear process for successfully achieving goals and navigating transitions.
