The Outrider Coaching team is led by award-winning leader and entrepreneur Lynn Taylor. His skills as a leader and instructor have been recognized by leaders in both the military and business world. As a repeatedly successful entrepreneur, Lynn knows what it takes to turn your dreams into reality. One brick and mortar retail business his team founded went from initial concept to first sale in less than six weeks. An on-the-road service business he built experienced 42% growth in its second year despite a so-called “down economy.”
Not only has Lynn proven his business skills, he is also an award-winning leader. His recognition includes the Ritchey Leadership Excellence award from the United States Air Force Squadron Officer School and Distinguished Graduate from Air Force Field Training. His skills as both an instructor and leader were recognized by his Air Force special operations students, and was requested by name to coordinate the close air support for the southern special operations group operating out of Kandahar, Afghanistan shortly after 9/11.
A former A-10 pilot, Lynn is familiar with high pressure environments, where high stakes decisions are the order of the day. His training as an airborne forward air controller has honed his ability to take large amounts of diverse information and combine them into a clear sequence for success. The best part is… he can teach you how to develop the exact same skills!
