Through our Leadership Coaching work together I made progress toward all of my initial goals for Coaching

“Through our Leadership Coaching work together I made progress toward all of my initial goals for Coaching. I now spend more time building relationships with my peers, staff, and superiors, which greatly benefit me in my work. I have set aside time for strategic thinking and have used most of the strategic thinking tools you provided to me to shape my strategic thinking activities. I recently sent my thoughts from one of those strategic thinking sessions to my boss and it was very impactful to our business. I am also stronger at inspiring, recognizing, and encouraging my staff. And Coaching changed the way I look at myself and others in a positive way and impacted how I interact in meetings. I now do planning before most of my meetings and find that I am more successful at getting what I need for my department and in influencing others. I also found documenting my Leadership Vision to be a very impactful activity and it led me to document the path I needed to follow to step into being the best leader I can be. I found your encouragement and ability to make me feel safe to be who I am, very helpful in our Coaching process and found Coaching to be everything I hoped it would be and more.”

You can’t put a price tag on the benefit one receives through Coaching

“You can’t put a price tag on the benefit one receives through Coaching. Working with you as my Coach helped me believe that I can lead at the top of an organization and to trust myself and my leadership skills more. You created a sense of trust that I don’t have with most people so that I was able to talk about things openly. This allowed me to work on how I interact with people who are a challenge for me to interact with and find new, more successful ways to work with them. And helped me realize that not everyone is going to understand where I’m coming from, and that’s ok. You were a partner to help me see things differently in my work and in my personal life. You also helped me negotiate the terms of my new job and successfully navigate the transition from one company to another. I found working with you as my Coach to be extremely helpful.”

Working with Donna has helped me become less permissive with my staff

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.

I have only worked with Donna for a few months and already the insights I have received have helped me break down roadblocks…

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.
