About Dr. Hynes

Dr. Hynes effectively helps her clients shift from autopilot to a more purposeful and deliberate mindset, enabling them to build confidence, develop relevant leadership skills, become more professionally savvy and strategic, and position themselves for further advancement.

In her first job out of college, Dr. Hynes worked in a white-male-dominated organization. Being a driven, young, Black woman and recently divorced single mother in an assistant role was challenging enough. Working with leaders who led by command and control and fear and intimidation proved to be a daily struggle.

Although ambitious, Dr. Hynes found that having a degree and working hard wasn’t enough to be seen and promoted. There were obscure barriers and uncommonly known strategies to getting ahead.

These early career experiences fueled Dr. Hynes’s passion for helping leaders develop their people and excel in their roles, as well as helping aspiring women leaders learn the tools and strategies to get ahead.

Dr. Hynes earned her Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology and focused her dissertation on successful Black women executives. She learned that having professional savvy, being a continuous learner, garnering the right support and accountability, and drafting and executing an actionable and measurable plan was the secret to advancement for any leader.

In her latest book, Leading on Purpose: The Black Woman’s Guide to Shattering the Glass Ceiling, Dr. Hynes springboards off the lessons learned in her research and shares the principles, insights, and strategies needed to thrive professionally. This book is for any woman who is committed to her career and those who support the careers of others.

Dr. Hynes enjoys working with diverse professionals at various points of their career journeys, from high-performing individual contributors to first-time executives. She coaches clients to develop critical skills needed to perform in their roles,  develop their teams, build confidence, and shift mindsets.
