Our Approach

We use experiential techniques to get participants to try and practice new behaviors. We push boundaries, getting participants to leave their comfort zones and push themselves. We take on a coaching mindset, where participants practice coaching others. We personalize by providing individual feedback and time for self-reflection. Combined, this powerful approach to learning is a catalyst for changing behaviors to achieve greater authenticity, communication and success.

How are we different from other providers?

The Programs

Memorable and transformative. Everything is designed to allow participants to learn through practice and leave with actionable takeaways. We invite participants to be fully present, work as a group, and learn from each other.

The Attention

Active coaching, not just feedback, works to change behaviors in the moment.

The Insight

Our highly perceptive facilitators quickly identify what’s working and what needs work for each participant, so they can focus on improving specific skills.

The Trainers

We use facilitators with substantial acting, directing, and business experience who are excellent coaches.

The Exercises

We use transformative and experiential exercises that combine participants’ “head” and “heart” (intellect and emotional intelligence) for stronger impact.

The Transferability of Learned Skills

The skills we teach are immediately applicable for business communications, and we make those applications clear to participants.

The Result

Every participant walks away with real experience in how to change key behaviors by using an Action Plan for change.
