Frequently Asked Questions

How do you work?

Each program is customized, interactive and practical.  Our clients learn by doing, enhancing skills with videotaped exercises where appropriate.  We design agendas in ½ day, full day or two-day sessions to produce targeted and concrete results.   The length of our programs is designed to suit individual client needs.

 

Whom do you help?

We've successfully trained a wide variety of individuals, teams and groups. We have a special expertise working with C-suite executives, mid-level leaders, high potential talent and other professional communicators and leaders in the private and public sectors.

We’ve worked with small entrepreneurial organisations, mid-size and large Blue Chip firms, locally and overseas.  In short, we excel at training anyone whose success depends on communicating with power, authenticity and distinction.  We believe in the need for more inspirational leaders.  We work to develop leaders who can inspire extraordinary performance in themselves and others.

 

How long do your clients generally work with you?

We offer half day, full-day and two-day modules or sessions. These are the building blocks from which clients can construct programs to suit their needs.  Some programs combine group work with on-going one-on-one coaching delivered over a year or 6 months.  Some clients train with us in preparation for a single event, while others come back repeatedly for on-going work. We’re proud that so many of our clients come back to us over the years as their needs change.

 

Do your programs really make a difference?

Yes! We use our unique Theatre of Leadership methodology to help you become a more confident, compelling presenter and dynamic speaker.  We prepare you for speeches, presentations, client interactions, business pitches, media interviews and other high impact performance situations.

In our leadership programs we use an experiential approach to develop transformational leadership skills.  All of our programs combine whole group, small group and individual coaching support.

We give you new tools and techniques, and then expertly guide your individual performance through rounds of practical exercises, rehearsals, videotaping and targeted feedback.  Our leadership development programs have great success releasing leadership talent with the capacity to inspire.  Ask us about our follow-up consultations designed to help you stay on track with your new skills.
