My Story

Photo of Coach Lyn Murphy

I started my career in the banking and finance industry as a teller when I was 15, and eventually worked my way up to CEO and President of a 1.5 billion dollar bank. Through a wide variety of experiences, I know what it takes to manage teams with enthusiasm and get great results. I also learned that organizational coaching leads to better returns for everyone involved.

I also want to help others who are considering retirement figure out what’s next for them. Retirement can be an exciting time – but it can also be daunting. I bring my no BS philosophy to life and coaching, and I promise to help make your journey as smooth as possible.

I’m a dedicated student of coaching since being awarded the International Coaching Federation’s Associate Certified Coach Credential in 2021 and the Professional Certified Coach Credential in 2022. As a coach, I strongly believe in the importance of creating a safe and equal space for everyone to reach their full potential. I strive to provide encouraging support so that each person can maximize their capabilities and discover new opportunities for themselves.

Hitting the reset button

In 1987, the stock market crashed. The commercial banking business was forced to realign by the regulatory authorities during the next decade. Fortunately, my loan portfolio was not as troubled as others. As a result, I was recruited into Asset Recovery (collection/workout loan division). 

As I continued to progress in knowledge and experience, I hit the “glass ceiling”. It was evident that in the late 80’s early 90’s, there was little room for women in the “C” suite. 

I took a payout and moved on to a small community bank that was under the control of the Comptroller of the Currency. My assignment was to fix the deeply troubled commercial loan portfolio. Again, I found a mentor who guided my development and expanded my career opportunities. We succeeded in the turnaround and were relinquished from the OCC control.

When my mentor left their position as CEO and President. I was promoted from Senior Commercial Lending Officer to CEO and President of the $1.5 million bank. At the time, I was 1 of 8 women in the U.S. to achieve this. 

There, the real career challenge began.
