Donna is one gifted Coach, – – able to see the forest AND the trees, and help you optimize both. I’ve worked with several talented business coaches and find Donna to be uniquely remarkable at helping me grow as a person and as an entrepreneur. She has my unconditional recommendation!

Donna is an excellent coach with proven results in a very short period of time. Her skills range from life coach to corporate coach and she is an expert at helping to develop LinkedIn profiles and more. Donna is a pleasure to work with and an excellent value at a reasonable cost!

I’ve had a pleasure of knowing Donna for a number of years and she was instrumental in helping us launch a coaching program at Dale Carnegie. Donna is a very talented coach and I’ve recommended her on many occasions to people who are looking for someone with great, positive energy and genuine care for people. Donna has a great gift for honoring people and making each person feel special. I am honored to know her and have her as a part of my professional network!

Donna guided me through the process of self-discovery, which led to the revelation of several deep rooted facts about me that I was myself unaware of.  These deep-rooted beliefs were holding me back from making the leap to assert myself as a leader.

Donna also guided me through the process of changing these perceptions, all the way equipping me with tools to make me more confident.  Donna, thank you for your patience in listening to me and for guiding me at every step. You offered the best coaching I could ever imagine and more!

Through the knowledge and support I’ve received through coaching I’ve become a more confident leader. . . . Having someone to talk to who is unbiased is invaluable.   Coaching has helped me understand what I do well as a leader and what I can improve.

Throughout the week I save up situations that don’t go smoothly and we review them to look for better decisions, language, and approaches.  We often role play, which helps because I’m learning by doing.  It’s specific, one-on-one learning for the specific skills I need.

Donna is an excellent Executive Coach and has really helped me grow professionally over the past year. Her experience and wisdom have really helped shape my perspective and skills. I’m far more comfortable now navigating the landscape of my career. The most important thing Donna has taught is stronger communication skills. I would strongly recommend Donna for anyone looking to learn new career/life skills. The investment will pay dividends.

I’m great at making goals and lists, but I get stuck.  Now with you as my coach, I keep moving forward.  I step back and think about what I need to do, what is really critical, and then I have a productive day.  I also make sure I get the rest I need.  I’m glad to be living a more balanced and focused life.

What makes Donna special as a Coach is all the resources she provides.  I could never have put my hands on all the information and articles she provided to me to support me on my journey.

Working with Donna Schilder as my Leadership Coach has helped me organize my time, keep me focused and productive, and create motivation for me to get my projects done. She has helped me organize information that would normally overwhelm me. I usually get lost in the details, but Donna helps me plan my projects and break them into portions that I can handle. She also gives me valuable feedback. I have been much more productive since I’ve been working with Donna as my coach.

Again, thank you for the terrific coaching session. I’ve made so much progress towards my career change, and I owe it all to you! I see myself starting a new job this Spring. But more importantly, the change in my attitude has been like night and day. I often repeat some of your phrases whenever I feel my brain getting into a bad loop – those words just bounce me right out of any negative thinking!
I am grateful to know you. The Leadership Coaching I’ve done with you has been a life changing event for me. I’ve learned things that I would not have learned on my own. I would have just kept doing things the same way. I wouldn’t have recognized how to become a better communicator. I took the Dale Carnegie Class, and you’ve helped me really apply what I learned there. My coaching sessions with you helped me to learn more about myself and learn how to do what needs to be done to improve myself. I am now more confident and better able to build good relationships with others. Since 80% of a person’s success comes from Human Relations skills (as I learned in the Dale Carnegie class), I know I will become more successful because of the work we have done together. Coaching really helped me recognize and focus on what’s important!
