Executives, Senior Leaders, and Their Teams
While presentation and media skills, executive presence, delivering a persuasive case, giving and receiving feedback, telling evocative stories, and calling people to take action are some of the most important skills for leadership success, few organizations are consistently investing in their top leaders’ communication skills.
What if every member of your C-Suite and senior leadership team(s) had the ability to unapologetically speak up for the ideas and issues that matter most to your organization?
What if your organization’s executives and senior leaders could develop the confidence and skills to master their high-stakes presentations and critical conversations?
What if your company’s leaders were regularly sharing their wisdom and your industry’s best practices at prestigious conferences and industry events?
And what if your organization had ongoing, monthly access to coaches, trainers, messaging strategists, copywriters (and, if desired, a Fractional Chief Communications Officer) who could support your C-suite and senior leaders with all of their interpersonal communication, public speaking, messaging, and important writing needs as they emerge?
From heightening speaking, media and executive presence, to telling powerful stories and overcoming objections, to navigating conflict and crisis communication, to co-creating dynamic messaging and establishing thought leadership, our executive communication retainers can support your company’s executives, key leaders, and their teams to access deep speaking and writing communication support from our team each month.
*Executive Communication Retainers begin at $2500/month and require a 3-month initial commitment
Senior Business Leaders, Managers, Sales Professionals, Female Leaders, and R&D, Innovation, DEI, and Other Critical Teams
In the 2-day, in-person or virtual program, through a mix of coaching, training, improvisation, real-world simulation, and actionable communication templates, participants develop the mindset, skill set, and habits to speak with power and impact and move people to take action on their ideas.
The holistic curriculum focuses on setting participants up for multi-layered success. Through mastering their own self-leadership and practicing the nuanced skills of high-impact interpersonal communication, persuasion, and negotiation, program participants dive deep into their own thinking and behavioral patterns and role play different types of relevant communication and leadership scenarios. They emerge more cohesive as co-workers and eager to bring their new learning and habits to their roles within your company.
Women Leaders and High-Potential Women Across Your Organization
There is abundant evidence that companies with multiple women in senior leadership and board positions are more successful than those with mainly men. However, in the wake of movements like Me Too and Time’s Up, it’s tempting for companies to make preventing sexual misconduct a top priority. While this is not wrong, it can place more emphasis on women’s protection than women’s empowerment and companies cannot achieve the former without the latter.
What if your company focused on creating (or shoring up) a workplace culture that develops and champions its high potential women?
What would be the impact if your organization established a robust pipeline of skilled and confident women leaders who were ready, as opportunities arose, to move your company forward?
If your company is not championing women to lead and live into their highest potential as leaders, your emerging women leaders are probably not advancing within your organization the way they and you want.
This is simple to rectify. Your high potential women can immediately amplify their communication and leadership skills, and you don’t have to send them off-site to do it.
We offer a yearlong women’s leadership experience, just for your high potential women, where they will receive hands-on, practical, holistic leadership skill development that translates into real-world application.
Plus, we can help you create and execute a Corporate Gender Responsibility™ (CGR) plan. (CGR is a company’s ability to create and sustain a culture and brand that protects and empowers employees, board members, customers, and community members of all gender identities.) Organizations committed to CGR look at women and non-binary employees’ experiences and how to improve them from recruitment, hiring, and onboarding through management, ongoing development, and advancement.
Many organizations have diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) plans and training. Yet too many employees don’t know how to show up as allies for employees with marginalized identities without centering their own voices and experiences in conversations and advocacy. Allyship, the practice of using one’s voice, power, and collective influence to draw attention to and address the needs of one or more oppressed groups, is the key to creating safety, belonging, and dignity for all employees.
Depending on your company’s existing programs and resources, we can support the creation of allyship in the workplace by:
*We partner with an international network of diverse consultants to lead dynamic, experiential virtual and in-person micro-training that brings awareness and understanding of the unmet needs of marginalized employee groups.
