Besides loving wine and coffee and great shoes, who is Donna Carlson?

Well, she lives in Colorado with her husband, three daughters and her only son – a doxie named Riley. They do the things most Colorado families like to do, as you can see below. The reason Donna created 360º Life Strategies was to show her girls what it means to invent a life of purpose and how you leverage the synergy of brilliant minds on a team.

She left a great job with The Center for Creative Leadership to bring bigger mindsets to smaller companies.  Her coaching philosophy stems from a master’s program in global leadership. Donna created a wholistic track to cultivate leaders with 360 degrees of influence in the organization by taking a whole-life approach to their development. That means helping individual link their innate talents, motives and instincts with their passion to better align with organizational priorities.

“I believe to have great impact in work and life, you must bring 100% of yourself to whatever you do.”

She’s designed two signature programs — a workshop called your life 360º that navigates the building blocks of personal happiness, influence and impact by understanding the ecosystem of the human body — and Life Strategy Design, which is a six month coaching program to help professionals learn who they are, how they’re made and how to optimize that in the world that matters to them.

So, where has Donna been?

Donna has a unique blend of 25 years in high-tech public relations, journalism, market research and global non-profit organizational communications. This crucial combination of leadership and marketing helps her provide a field guide perspective on how to employ people as strategy, igniting the best in every team member as an ambassador of the brand.

She has an eclectic pedigree – a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Texas at Austin (1989), a Master of Arts in Global Leadership (in progress) with an emphasis in Wholistic Development from Fuller Theological Seminary and she’s a certified master yoga instructor since 2010. A John Maxwell Team Coach, Donna is also certified in The Center for Creative Leadership’s Benchmarks® 360 assessments and trained in all five sciences of psychometric assessments administered by TTI Success Insights. Her signature course, your life 360o, optimizes the ecosystem of the human body through an active learning environment so you can achieve a bigger mind, a happy life and greater impact on your world.
