You need a speaking coach with the right approach (for your needs and personality).
Here's what you can expect during your speaker coaching journey, whether we work together virtually or in-person:
1 // WE WON'T REHEARSE
I don't believe in memorizing and rehearsing. Instead, we'll practice. I'm going to "stumble through" your talks with you and this makes a big difference because it opens the space for us to play and for your courage to unfold organically. By stumbling with me by your side, you're going to learn in ways that feel natural and become part of your DNA. Your confidence as a speaker will take root and become stronger with each session.
2 // I'LL GET TO KNOW YOU
Trust is everything. Before we do anything, we’re going to hang out. Connect. Talk.
I can best help you when I know who are you and what's important to you.
As your coach, I want to make sure that YOU are the core of you work. To pull out your authentic voice, I need to know you, so before we dive into making improvements, we’re going to dive into you.
3 // I'M NOT GOING TO JUDGE YOU
One of the scariest things about public speaking is the feeling of being judged. And hiring a speaking coach may feel like you're signing up for a great big judge-a-thon.
That's not how this works.
Here’s the deal: You start with an A from me. You're great, just as you are. If there’s room for improvement—it’s not because you're lacking. It's simply because you haven't a learned a few things that can help you better connect and dazzle!
The gap everyone has in their ability to be a great speaker is simple. It's confidence.
Whatever you believe about yourself is your reality.
My job as your coach is to turn up the volume on your actual confidence. I'll do this by showing you. Your newfound confidence will be built upon a foundation of truth, data, and proof—so it will be real instead of a temporary shiny mask (that will eventually lose its power).
