Make people want to listen.
Whether you’re selling an idea, communicating about change, giving a high-stakes presentation, or motivating your team, it’s not just what you say that matters – it’s how you say it.

EXECUTIVE COMMUNICATIONS COACHING
Executive presence (EP) is a powerful combination of authenticity, reliability, and confidence—the ability to inspire and influence different audiences in different situations. It isn’t something you’re born with; it’s something you build with feedback and practice. We can help you cultivate your authentic style of executive presence. We believe that presence isn’t about being sterile, boring, or traditional. Our approach to coaching executive presence is modern, unique, and inclusive. Because it’s not just about communicating like a leader—it’s about communicating like a human.
Communication coaching helps executives refine the clarity and impact of their messages, as well as their delivery and confidence. We can help you build your authentic brand of leadership communication by strengthening your speaking, writing, listening, and storytelling skills. Our coaching sessions can help you prepare for upcoming meetings, presentations, and conversations by analyzing your audience, building a storyline, crafting your written and verbal messages, creating or critiquing slides, and anticipating tough questions. Creative Executive coaching can also help you strengthen your communication muscles with fun, helpful exercises that improve clarity and conciseness, nonverbal communication, and more.
