Private Executive Presentation Coaching
Private coaching sessions can take on many different formats and
durations, are designed for presenters at all skill levels,
and can be provided at your location or ours, by phone, video,
or online meeting.
take the time to truly understand what is important to you and
how we can measure and monitor your success. If appropriate,
we’ll review previously recorded presentations, utilize online
assessments to identify your perceived communication strengths
and weaknesses, and, with your permission, solicit feedback from
your selected colleagues about your communication effectiveness.
Because the time is dedicated solely to you in our private
sessions, you'll have the opportunity to polish all the details
that can make all the difference. When we meet, you'll receive
an honest and constructive assessment
of your skills and a blueprint for success. Through strategic
planning, demonstrations, simulations, and award-winning
battle-tested coaching, you’ll gain precisely what you need to
meet the demands of your important communication situations.
We’ll build upon your natural strengths and personality so that
you excel quickly and comfortably.
A key ingredient in our clients’ success is our
combination of in-person sessions as well as remote sessions via phone
or Web meetings. We'll likely have some quick accountability calls to keep you
on-track as well as longer consultations to bounce ideas, strategize and
rehearse for upcoming presentations.
You’ll receive audio and/or video recordings of your sessions to
review and reinforce your learning, and together, we’ll create
step-by-step action plans for your continuous improvement.
You'll also receive our proprietary presentation planners,
wallet reminder cards, a subscription to the Simply Speaking®
communication strategies newsletter, and David's books,
Simply Speaking!® The No-Sweat Way to Prepare and Deliver
Presentations, How to Avoid Death by PowerPoint!, and How
to Conduct Incredibly Productive Meetings.
Below are three of our most popular private executive
presentation coaching plans which can serve as conversation
starters and be tailored to fit your specific needs:
The Silver Plan
is often ideal when you need to prepare for an important
presentation or polish your skills. It includes
everything listed above and provides private in-person
sessions for one intensive full day, which may be divided into
partial day sessions if feasible. We’ll follow-up with
one month of scheduled phone/online meeting sessions,
typically up to one hour each week, to ensure that you stay on course.
The Gold Plan
keeps the momentum going and takes your skills to a whole new
level. It includes everything in the Silver plan plus three
additional months of scheduled phone/online meeting sessions, typically one every other
week, to expand and polish your skill set and prepare for upcoming
presentations. If you have a pending presentation deadline, we
can schedule your sessions closer together.
The Platinum Unlimited Plan
perfect for the executive who delivers several critical
presentations each year. After a thorough needs analysis,
for one full day of
private coaching or two consecutive half-days, if feasible. You’ll also receive the coaching
and consulting you need when you need it through
unlimited (reasonable) scheduled as well as spur-of-the-moment
sessions – it’s not unusual for clients to call from
their offices, hotel rooms, or airports to bounce ideas,
strategize and rehearse for upcoming presentations, and receive
quick advice to ensure their success. You can also take comfort
knowing that with this plan we provide a 24-hour response
time for "emergency" situations. We’ll meet again in-person
for one day approximately three months after our first meeting
to take your new skills to an even higher level. If you desire,
your sessions may include “in-the-field”
preparation/observations followed by debriefing and coaching.
This plan is designed for a minimum of six months and can be
continued six months at a time.
