About Donna 

Coaching is my “calling”! I have a passion for helping others discover their strengths and use them to achieve extraordinary results. Whether working with an individual or a team, I have the natural ability to inspire, motivate in a positive, enthusiastic, and thought provoking manner that encourages self-exploration and reflection while maximizing personal and professional potential

I'm dedicated to individual, team and organizational development to drive business results. As a Performance development coach, I believe “You have what it takes!” I help my clients tap into their inner genius and gain the insight, clarity and motivation they need to put their skills, strengths, and talents into action resulting in a higher level of performance in business and in life!

My focus is to help people gain perspective on their vision, and overcome limiting beliefs, behaviors and challenges that get in the way of their success. I guide them to step up to their full potential and create a plan to turn their vision of success into reality.

Whether working with an individual, a group or a team, I have the ability to listen deeply, create trust and encourage the self-exploration and discovery needed to maximize personal and professional potential. 


Why Best Year Yet®

Before joining Results Coaching in 2008, I was introduced to the Best Year Yet® planning and coaching program by my employer. Our leadership team implemented the programs when faced with aggressive goals and overwhelming challenges. After experiencing impressive results, I decided that I wanted to share my learnings with others.

"We met each month, going through our accomplishments and lessons learned. Donna kept us on task and assisted our discussions. She was a solid facilitator that allowed us to achieve a significant amount. Her style was one of coach; supporting us and cheering us on while also pushing and challenging us. I felt we were at ease in her presence. We went from an isolated, dysfunctional system to one where we truly work as a collaborative, empathetic and caring team."  ~ David J. Peters, Mount Michael Benedictine School

“Donna has led me through the Best Year Yet process that greatly expanded the products I offer and the markets to which I offer them. The resulting action plan is mine but her questions drew it from me and her tenacity with follow up has kept me on track. In addition, our collaboration on web site and brochure design was pure synergy. To see what I envision be realized in such a powerful way was remarkable. She is now a trusted partner.” ~ Jeffrey Jans, Owner ReVisions Training & Boomerangs Retirement Coaching

“I highly recommend Donna King! The Best Year Yet workshop that she took me through was not only an enlightening experience but it empowered me to act and do things that I never thought I could do. I am well on my way to the most exciting and productive time of my life. She has helped me overcome my fears and lack of confidence while helping me accountable and true to myself” ~ Stacy Shatz, Project Manager, WebMD
