Donna Karlin is an extremely skilled executive coach. Donna uses patience as a strategic tool that allows you to evolve, soak in her guidance and ultimately discover about yourself what she knew within the first 5 minutes of working with you. It is only then that she shares with you exactly what you need to hear because she knows you now have the ability to take it in and do something with it. This, coupled with many other great attributes and capabilities, is what makes Donna so exceptional.
Donna has a keen insight and comprehensive understanding of her client's issues. Her warm and enthusiastic manner makes everything easier to swallow , even the tough work that needs to be done. She brings a wealth of wisdom and perspective to each interaction.
Donna has shifted the way the coaching profession 'sees' what is possible for them, to broaden and deepen the impact of coaching to politicians and political bodies of the very highest order. Talk about striking at the heart of where change means most. As Donna leads the way for others, I'm sure we will see a sea change at the identity level in (1) these organizations and (2) in coach's’ hearts and minds. If you're a politician without a shadow coach like Donna, get one. Now. And if you are a coach looking for a niche...get a hold of Donna… Yesterday.
Working with Donna has resulted in me having more confidence in myself as a leader - her discretion, tact, expert advice, friendly and energetic vibe and her commitment and professionalism and keen observations have brought me to a new level at work. Donna has, in 3 days, changed my life. The suggestions and observations Donna made were provided by a credible, caring and well-informed person, witnessing the environment and dynamics in my workplace and then providing commentary which could be debated and discussed from a shared experience. The experience blew my mind and has moved me to a new plateau.
