Executive Speech Coaching Program Description
Important conversations… Compelling presentations… Credible professional image. These are a few of the critical skills that define executive excellence.
Research tells us that executive development happens over time. As an executive, you face on-going leadership challenges. You must master new knowledge and skills to strengthen your existing professional experience and further guide your personal judgment. By learning to communicate more effectively, you can rise to the challenge of everyday communication, project an image of confidence, and deliver presentations with greater power. As you accelerate your communication skills you equip yourself to lead with strength and passion—and become a powerful leader who knows how to educate, influence, persuade, and inspire.
- Challenge: As an executive, you know that whenever you stand up to speak, the stakes are higher. So how can you enhance your presentation skills in a way that is uniquely calibrated to your role, responsibilities, and personal preferences?
- Solution: The Executive Immersion program will move you to the next level by enhancing your natural abilities—not by pressing you into a mold.
Executive Immersion is designed to give you a clear, professional analysis of your skills, key insights into your strengths, and a diplomatic and constructive review of your development areas. By utilizing careful, systematic skill building that reinforces critical fundamentals, you will learn the solid techniques used by professional, successful world-class speakers. This program is a dynamic, hands-on learning experience that gives you the individualized attention you need to succeed.
This program is designed for executives, emerging leaders, high potentials, global leaders, and anyone who is currently or training to be in a leadership role.
The schedule is based on client needs and goals. Packages include a series of half-day face-to-face coaching sessions coupled with phone coaching calls over several months or longer. While the program is designed to be delivered over several months, some clients opt for a one-day intensive or fewer half-day sessions.
By the end of the Executive Speech Coaching program you will be able to:
- Accelerate your performance delivery skills—physical presence, vocal resonance, and distinctive language—to help you look, speak, and act in a manner consistent with your company culture, executive role, and career goals
- Adopt The DeFinis Navigator, our content planning tool, to keep you organized, focused, and on-track—with or without a speechwriter
- Use rhetorical devices including stories, examples, data, metaphors, and visuals to enrich the quality of your message and help you exude a confident, professional and highly personal style
- Master powerful techniques to understand the mind of your audience, your customers, and your executive team, thus increasing the quality of your communications with listener-focused conversations
- Raise the bar and model a high standard for superior presentations for your employees, peers, colleagues, and all members of the workforce
We begin by assessing your current skill level, reviewing feedback from others, and defining your program goals. This information will give you a benchmark on which to build new skills and help you develop a plan for continuous improvement. Then, using The Connection Loop, our core learning model, you will be quickly immersed in learning skills, behaviors, and techniques used by world-class public speakers.
But analysis and theory are never enough to drive behavioral change, so get ready for action! Working with an expert coach over time gives you the chance for deep immersion in the process and practice of public speaking. You will polish and refine your new skills continuously as you deliver your presentation in front of the camera. During our signature Line by Line Coaching process, you will receive immediate feedback followed by practice, demonstration, skill coaching, and drills.
