Achieve success through authentic communication


  • Leading with Presence

    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.

  • Virtual Presence

    When communicating across cities or time zones, building strong relationships is essential to getting things done—and also more challenging. When they can’t rely on the benefits and nuances of in-person interaction, the most successful leaders, managers and professionals harness their virtual presence to connect authentically with their remote audiences in order to influence and inspire across the virtual divide.


    Virtual Presence uses best-in-class virtual learning platforms and a unique methodology rooted in actor training to help your leaders and high potentials engage, build relationships and connect with people in any virtual context. From phone calls and web conferences to video chats and online presentations, we’ll help them get maximum value from their time and their tools.

    In the business world, storytelling is an essential communications tool; it can make complex data accessible, cultivate relationships with products and people, rally teams around a strategy and fuel compelling narratives that shape organizational culture.


    Storytelling provides a highly experiential approach to development, combining pre-work, a classroom workshop, and reinforcement to strengthen learning outcomes.
