Speaking to groups is the number one way to build a coaching practice, but only if who you’re in front of the room present, authentic, and sincere, as it is when you’re interacting with clients.  But, what’s the key to making it happen?

Never stop being a coach!  Apply the same core competencies to speaking as you do to your coaching.  Create a safe and supportive environment in your room that honors your audience’s agenda.  When you’re open and flexible at the moment, you create a dynamic synergy with your audience.

In this highly interactive and thought-provoking presentation, you will learn:

  • How to manifest a presence that’s warm and genuine while being profoundly audience-focused and intensely purposeful.
  • How the message you send goes beyond the words you speak.
  • What goes into creating a compelling, interactive presentation that evokes insight and encourages people to expand their thinking.
  • How to provide masterful coaching as you engage audience members.
  • How to make an offer from the stage that speaks to the needs of your audience members and lands like an opportunity for further exploration and growth … and how to stay unattached as you do it!

The bottom line:  Talking with a client in a coaching setting is very much like speaking to a group of people you don’t know … if you approach it the right way.
