Donaldson has been a visiting professor at Harvard University’s Center for Public Leadership at the Kennedy School of Government. She was the “pitch coach” on ABC’s American Inventor and coached the contestants to success persuading judges and America.

An instructional designer, speaker and trainer with over 25 years experience, Donaldson has designed and presented programs in subject matter areas including public speaking, gender communications, customer relations, business writing, manager orientation, high-performance team building, supervisory skills, conflict resolution, stress management, goal setting, and sexual harassment prevention. She has conducted needs assessments, written participant and instructor materials, and trained trainers.

As an internal Human Resources trainer for Northrop Aircraft and Rockwell International Space Division, Donaldson instructed first and second-level supervisors and middle and upper-level managers in presentation skills. She was Director of Educational Media at Walt Disney Company. She designed and implemented full-day instructional workshops on motivating and managing, goal-setting and problem solving techniques.

Her second book was "Bless Your Stress: It Means You’re Still Alive!" Her third book is about success and football: "Necessary Roughness: New Rules for the Contact Sport of Life." As a very funny, football female, Donaldson uses football as a metaphor for shaking off the bad plays, or roadblocks of challenging times, and leading with perseverance and courage.
