COMMUNICATION COACHING

  
As a professional, your communication style is your calling card. Meetings, interviews, networking events and presentations put those skills under the spotlight. Whatever your field, strong verbal and written communication skills can make all the difference.
 
Professional communication coaching and training can help you to maximize your communication potential. We will help to identify strengths and areas for growth in your verbal, non-verbal, social and written communication skills, and work with you to build your charisma, assertiveness and confidence both in and out of the boardroom.
 
While each program is unique, thought-provoking reflection and self-analysis will be required. Exercises are built upon reflection and role play of real-life situations such as meetings, presentations, interviews, or challenging conversations.

Presentations & Voice

  • focused and guided preparation and practice for meetings, presentations and interviews
  • using skills to manage and reduce anxiety during communication situations
  • efficiently using breath stream management, phrasing, intonation to radiate a relaxed and engaging delivery
  • optimizing vocal clarity, loudness and vocal projection
  • discovering ideal pacing and rate of speech
  • reducing less efficient speaking patterns (such as "up-talk" and vocal fry)
  • demonstrating open and relaxed non-verbal (body language) style for presentations and interviews 
  • reducing rambling in high-performance situations 

Speech & Clarity Goals 

  • increasing speech clarity and enunciation for increased comprehension by listeners
  • reducing patterns that may present as a barrier for advancing in the workplace (e.g. upspeak, glottal fry, etc.)
  • incorporating professional or robust vocabulary to workplace communication  
  • addressing speech-related differences that may present as a barrier for advancing in the workplace, such as articulation errors (e.g. lisp, R-sound) or pronunciation differences
  • appropriately organizing information while responding on-the-spot or when unprepared
  • reducing ineffective communication patterns, such as pervasive use of filler words
