Coaching

Hi, I'm Donna Schilder, Leadership Coach, Career Coach & Business Coach. Welcome to my Coaching website. As a Master Certified Coach (MCC), I provide a place for you to stand back, assess situations, reconnect to your goals, and choose the best approach to achieve your desired outcomes. I have been advising Executives for over 20 years, and love working with intra-preneurs and entrepreneurs as well.

My goal is to help you move forward quickly and efficiently, while fostering deep learning.

I believe Coaching must address the whole person, so Life Coaching is part of the process with my Leadership Coaching, Executive Coaching, Career Coaching, Job Search Coaching, and Small Business Coaching clients.

Based in Long Beach, California, I serve Irvine, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Orange County & Southern California as well as international clients.

What People are Saying About Donna

Working with Donna has helped me become less permissive with my staff and hold them more accountable, create more clarity when assigning work to my staff, delegate more, and be more decisive in handling performance issues. In our work together I have also learned to stay more neutral when handling conflict and better manage the speed of change in the organization. I found Executive Coaching very helpful.

— Executive Director, Nonprofit

Donna’s coaching work with me was incredibly beneficial not only as an additional resource, added perspective, and support for execution of my action plan, but she really helped get to the core of the matter and provided great feedback.

— C.Y., Director of Sales, Fortune 100 Company

I have only worked with Donna for a few months and already the insights I have received have helped me break down roadblocks that have held me back for years. She is insightful and supportive, but more than that, she helps you discover, reason, and feel. She intuitively knows when a topic needs pushing and that is what I am most grateful for. Initially I would think I’m talking about something, but she would help me discover that the issue was something else entirely. I already feel like I’ve grown by leaps and bounds and look forward to working with Donna to continue breaking down the barriers that have kept me from growing my business and my personal brand to its full potential.

— Vikram JadhavClick - Co-Founder at Kite

I have learned new processes in my Executive Coaching sessions which have helped me to grow in my executive experience. I am amazed at the talent Donna has and how upbeat she is on a consistent basis. She is truly meant to be a Coach. She has guided me through some challenging situations. And, I’m sharing what I’ve learned with others so that they, too, may benefit with the wisdom Donna imparts.
