Leading with Presence

Motivate teams, communicate values and inspire followership.

Great leaders bring more to the table than technical skills and intellect, or inner charisma and charm. They’re relationship builders who have learned to connect authentically with the hearts and minds of others in order to motivate and inspire them to achieve a desired outcome.

Leading with Presence links best practices from actor training with specific, actionable business behaviors to develop leaders who will drive your competitive advantage. They’ll draw on their own unique history and style and use the power of storytelling to inspire trust, promote collaboration, and galvanize the people around them to follow their lead and reach breakthrough results.

Leading with Presence provides a highly experiential approach to development, combining pre-work, a two-day classroom workshop, and follow up coaching to strengthen learning outcomes.
