Developing teaching strategies
Developing curriculum to meet today’s academic standards and use current resources is a difficult task. Let Sygiel Solutions design lessons that engage students while developing 21st century skills.
Crafting communication projects
Have a new product that needs to be explained in layman’s terms? Need concise writing to explain a new fundraising project? Let Sygiel Solutions help hone your messages to appeal to your target audience.
Coaching and mentoring
Everyone has a story to tell, but sometimes the author is too close to tell it concisely. Sygiel Solutions will help you determine your audience, find the right style and capture your voice.
Often, an organization recognizes the importance of a project, but its staff has an already full plate. Sygiel Solutions can break the project into manageable parts.
About Lynn Sygiel
“Lynn was hired as a consultant to enhance our magnet- theme curriculum for Crestview School of Communication. She took bits and pieces of our current communication curriculum along with our ideas and ran with it. As a result of Lynn being so well connected throughout Indianapolis, new relationships have been built and we clearly see more opportunities available. Lynn is creative, thorough, professional and reliable and was a game changer for my school.”
– Kim Brown, Crestview principal, Lawrence Township
