In private practice since 1979, PMN Founder Sylvia WynnLindeman has provided a full spectrum of organizational and leadership development services to businesses, non-profits, government agencies and Native American enterprise and government throughout the greater Bay Area – from Sacramento to the Silicon Valley; and from Sonoma County to the Sierras.
Her 24 years in the classroom at Golden Gate University (where she also attended business school) earned her the rank of Senior Adjunct Professor - Strategy and Leadership. Often asked to provide faculty development workshops in course design and student engagement, Sylvia was elected to chair the Faculty Senate by her colleagues. Many of the policies and processes her senate teams proposed that year still serve the university today.
A popular presenter at local, regional and national conferences, her articles and columns on organizational behavior and leadership have been published by several business periodicals. An enthusiastic volunteer for community, educational and animal welfare organizations, Sylvia has served on the steering committee for the Sustainable Enterprise Conference, on the advisory board
for a local pre-school and managed a two-county chapter
of a national non-profit.
Located in Sonoma County, Sylvia travels the state to assist her clients and is pursuing ongoing graduate level studies in pursuit of her doctorate.
PMN Associates are established consultants whose professional ethics and values complement Sylvia's and whose advanced training has prepared them to work on complex, large projects.
Sylvia is a national member in good standing of the Organization Development Network and the Association for Talent Development (formerly the Association for Training and Development), a proud member of the National Native American Human Resource Association and an affiliate of the American Indian Chamber of Commerce – California Chapter. Sylvia is active in her local Sonoma County professional network through the Progressive Consultants Group. (Keynote at the Volunteer Center Annual Conference, 2012)
