Training Designed to Take You To The Next Level of Speaking Skills
This is the natural progression from your first Commanding Presence Workshop to a higher level of performance & consistency. This time, we focus on coaching you to a new level of personal communication skills, using your own material.
The Phase Two Workshop Includes:
We customize the workshop to address your specific communication & presentation needs with in-depth discussion and group coaching sessions.
We first identify your unique personality traits with an MBTI analysis, and then we work on how to leverage them in your communication style.
You create and refine your own presentation with immediate feedback and coaching.
You practice with partners and record three drafts of the presentation with on-camera coaching and feedback.
In total, you receive over 7 hours of coaching, including a one-hour personal coaching session that you can use after the workshop, prior to an important presentation or meeting.
After the workshop, you receive your coach’s notes regarding delivery and performance and access to your coach for a one-hour pre-presentation coaching session as noted above.
Phase Two Format: We Prepare For Your Success
Before your workshop, you have three simple tasks. First, create a one-page outline for a presentation on your topic of choice. Second, complete your Myers Briggs online assessment. Third, find two pages of text that you enjoy, from your favourite book, novel, or poem.
On Day One it’s straight to work. You will be on your feet presenting your own material, critiquing your own work and learning new techniques to respond to questions respectfully, concisely and persuasively.
With only six participants, you can look forward to plenty of personal attention.
You will role-play to develop your one-to-one communication skills and receive voice & performance coaching

Recent Phase Two Testimonials
“Phase II – Power & Persuasion was an excellent workshop. I enjoyed building upon the material from the first Commanding Presence workshop, and the small size of the group really helped with meaningful discussions and feedback. There was plenty of time for both individual coaching and interaction with the other participants. We really did “put it all together” – presentation, speaking, listening. You won’t be disappointed.”
Cathy McPhail, Vice President Finance and Administration
