Ever wonder what a communication coach actually does? It used to be that communication coaches focused on public speaking, following the Dale Carnegie tradition.
That’s not the story of my coaching practice. I work with highly conscientious high-performers (many are introverts) who want to be more effective in selling their ideas to the C-suite, leading their teams, and exerting more influence throughout the company.
Here are a few problems I helped clients solve just last week:
– Saying “no” to senior leadership to protect team in Amsterdam from overload
– Pitching a concept to senior leadership in Silicon Valley
– Interview preparation for all kinds of senior roles
– How to introduce the Performance Improvement Plan to team member working in a different country from the leader
– Creating a Tedx talk for someone in Costa Rica
– Helping several high performers (one in Mexico) be more crisp and concise
– Addressing feedback of being “too direct”
– Preparing for skip skip meeting
-Making online presentations more engaging
Most of the solutions to these common situations include an element, or several, of executive presence. Most clients are able to transform their leadership communication after five coaching calls.
We all want to to build cultures where everyone feels heard, understood, and valued.
Sound like tremendous fun? It definitely is.
