Help your team become confident speakers in all situations
Public speaking is one of people’s greatest fears. Yet, it’s a skill that is vital to the success of your organization.
You want to ensure that your team can confidently express their ideas and represent the goals and values of your organization.
Pressure to adapt to the hybrid of online and in-person communication is something that we’ve all been struggling with.
Plus, each person has unique goals and challenges when it comes to public speaking.
They need to communicate effectively in all aspects of their role, including leadership, building community relationships and delivering both formal and informal speeches and presentations.
A “one sized fits all” solution won’t provide tangible and lasting results. What’s needed is training that is structured yet personalized.
I’m here to help.
I have been teaching and coaching adults for over 20 years in the educational, non-profit and business sectors and know how difficult it can be to support the diverse needs of your group.
That’s why I’m so passionate about offering customized group training and individual coaching packages to meet the unique needs of your team.
If that sounds good to you, the first step is to book a call to share about your goals and see if it’s a fit.
What is a customized approach?
First, I take time to build a relationship with your organization and learn about your goals, values, and learning culture.
We will discuss options with regards to workshop topics and program structure including in-person or online group training as well as individual coaching packages.
Then, we will schedule an introductory zoom call so I can get to know the members of your team and learn more about their individual needs and concerns.
Structured yet personalized
Next, I deliver training that is grounded in adult learning principles and combines cognitive, mindfulness, somatic and acting-based techniques.
Workshops include presentations, resources and activities and are delivered within a supportive and encouraging learning environment that honors individual comfort zones.
Learning is further supported through one-on-one coaching sessions that are tailored to each individual and their role.
