In C-Suite Speaking, you’ll get real results — immediately. I’ve spent over 30 years developing tools that achieve greater impact in less time.

My methodology has been tested and proven effective time and time again at the highest levels of business. Leaders trust my skills under pressure, when their careers are on the line.

 

  • Follow-up

Your coaching experience doesn’t end when you leave my studio. After your program, I will check in on your progress and send you my articles to stimulate your thinking. I am always available help you excel in that big interview or critical presentation — call me anytime.

  • “Ahs” and “ers”

For learning how to get into a rhythm so that your “ahs” and “ers” will naturally disappear.

Your C-Suite Speaking program will be fully customized to meet your needs. My approach is holistic. I discover who you are — both as a person and as a business leader — and design a program that is just right for you.

 

  • 1/2 Day: Assessment

In four hours, you’ll get a thorough understanding of your strengths and opportunities — not flattery.

 

The process:

— Breakfast. We’ll chat about your business, your background, and your issues. By observing you in a natural setting, I will be able to see images of you that are real, spontaneous, and authentic — your natural style.

— Video interview. I will ask you questions focused on revealing all the dimensions     of your speaking.

— Analysis of strengths. I will analyze what sets you apart when you are at your best.

— Analysis of opportunities. I will analyze with precision to help you move forward, not look backward.

 

  • 1 Day: Fundamentals

In one day, you will receive an assessment as well as the building blocks you need to take your speaking to the next level. I will help you learn proven processes that will develop your leadership presence while staying true to who you are.

 

  • 2 Days: In-Depth

In two days, you will receive an assessment, the fundamentals, and specialized tools that will add even more dimension to your speaking — tools that are specifically chosen to enhance your unique speaking style. You will achieve the improved clarity, storytelling ability, and inspiration you need to go from good to great.

Personal Follow-Up

When you come for C-Suite Speaking, we begin a relationship. I am determined to support and inspire your development in your C-Suite Speaking program and beyond.

In addition to your standard program materials, upon completion of your C-Suite Speaking program you will receive a flash drive of my “Thoughts.” I want you to refresh your practice with key reviews by hearing examples of the skills you learned. I want you to hear the sounds, understand the rhythms, and connect the concepts.

For example:

      How to develop leadership presence

      How to increase your influence on decisions that count

      How to demonstrate leadership in your board presentations

 

One week later, you will receive a personal letter highlighting your strengths and opportunities and outlining your critical areas of focus going forward.

Approximately three months after your program ends, you will receive a personal email reviewing key areas of focus — soliciting questions and a progress report.

Additionally, I offer continued availability for all my clients. You are invited to call or email me at any time after your program ends — day or night, even weekends. I am always available to address any questions or concerns.

Articles

To keep you mindful of key insights and continuously improve your speaking after your program ends, I send you my articles from The Business Journals and Fast Company.

For example:

  1. “Getting beyond stage fright: 3 steps for speaking with ease and control
  2. How To Be A Smooth Talker And Eliminate Filler Words
  3. 3 secrets of leadership presence”
