Her motto: Change is a natural disrupter, leverage it to create your desired outcome….Donna-268

Passion. Enthusiasm. Inspiration. Leadership. BOLD ACTIONS. These are the words that immediately come to mind when you think of Donna Barr. Her practical, focused way of taking action in her own life, as well as inspiring action in the lives of others is what led her to create her signature coaching program BOLD ACTIONS(BA). It is an effective and positive transformational development program that positions individuals, teams and organizations  to be empowered,  and resilient as they create positive outcomes. BA begins with self awareness and ends with bold actions, to drive positive change.

Ms. Barr believes:

  • We all are leaders, and leaders create positive change.
  • Your effectiveness as a leader is directly impacted by your commitment to personal growth and self-awareness.
  • A spiritual perspective is an empowered perspective.
  • Progress is made outside of your comfort zone.
  • To deliver your inspired vision, you must translate it into an actionable strategy, and back it with bold actions.
