Why the Coaching Works (in-person or online)


Even LeBron James has a coach

It is not easy to phone a stranger and ask for help about something really personal --- your public speaking anxiety. Yet, you are ready to make that call because you have finally decided to confront your anxiety because you know what a difference stronger speaking could mean to you.

I've been there. I once hid in the men's room when it was my time to speak. My path from nervous presenter to paid speaker is the one I share with you. I do not give you a few tips and send you on your way. You'll learn a new approach to speaking that you can use for the rest of your life.

This is your moment to take action.

What To Expect

Your coaching will not come from a junior associate. I work directly with my clients in one-on-one sessions. The five-session program has produced great results for clients.

In the first session, I meet with you to sharpen the focus on your own goals and challenges. I then present a short outline, tailored to those needs, that explains what to expect from future sessions.

In the remaining four sessions (each about an hour), you learn

    - a new way to prepare for speaking that eases anxiety and makes you more interesting
    - techniques that help you feel more in control
    - new insights on how to be clearer and how to use technology to enhance that clarity
    - how to anticipate and overcome any speaking surprises
    - more about humor, graphics, and style
    - the value of effective feedback

You will do an actual presentation that I review and offer helpful advice. You end the coaching with your own outline, a path for success you use forever.
