"When Pat gave me the opportunity to sign on to a series of biweekly leadership coaching sessions, I eagerly took the opportunity to learn more about negotiating my leadership role from someone who had several years of leadership experience in the district. What I received from these coaching sessions turned out to be much more than that; Pat’s sessions filled the void that remained after the practical mentoring and advice I had received from my teammates, by addressing the big issues everyone identifies as crucial, but too often fail to formally address: work / life balance, deep personal reflection an holistic goal setting, and eliminating the dissonance between personal development and professional success."

- Jeff Feucht, Assistant Principal
Glenbard West High School

""Pat Donohue's passion, preparation and energy set him apart as a presenter. He projects confidence, demonstrates a deep knowledge base, and crafts a clear, memorable message. He doesn't hide behind facts; but rather uses stories and multi-media visuals and audio to compliment his message. One of his greatest strengths is his use of humor to hook and connect with his audience, winning their trust, inviting them to engage, and then challenging them to action: to think, to speak, to believe. You won't find a more genuine, transparent, or engaging speaker who literally embodies the message, bringing it to life in a way that leaves everyone encouraged and empowered."

"Before Pat, my son was under performing at school and pretty checked out of his own life. Nothing 'bad' just disengaged. After seeing Pat each week he is now on the honor roll, working and really content. Pat has been his chief encourager and motivator allowing him to see the benefits of moving forward in life, growing one step at a time. Every parent should have Pat by their side, it beats getting frustrated and nagging all the time. "
