Early in her coaching career, Donna realized she was coaching clients' perceptions, not necessarily their reality. The seed of the Shadow Coaching(r) methodology was planted in the waiting room of a surgeon where her clients revealed their fears, their realities, and their truths. Now, almost three decades later, you will see Donna coach on the run with her clients through the halls of corporate headquarters, government departments, and agencies and political offices. She coaches extraordinary people to become even better than they ever thought possible.
