Unlock your leadership voice!
Please secure your seat in this exclusive program, for 9 participants only, per module.
In this experiential course, you will first learn tools and techniques to unlock your internal leadership resources. You will then build awareness of your audience and experience how to make your unique character known to them.
With the benefit of a small group setting, you will learn practices to cut through the internal noise and tame the fears that keep you from being fully present in the moment. You will learn to stand with not knowing what to say, but with the deeper certainty that you will find just the right words and expression.
After you have completed Powerful Presence you will have an expanded suite of communication skills as well as presentation skills.
Working with your trainer, you will have the opportunity to experience openness, calm and courage when you are ready to speak. You will be trained in how to use both your body and voice to expand your repertoire of expression. Using a range of physical movements and musical techniques, you can bring play, joy and life-fulness to your public speaking.
Peer and group feedback are key components of this course. In addition to the collective setting, you will also benefit from a 1 on 1 personalized online meeting with your trainer before the course and a group meeting afterward to celebrate learnings.
