Being Great at Leadership Does Not Come with The Job Title

Ineffective communication impacts leadership success. When directives or ideas are made with poor clarity, unintentional, soft wording, or with a lack of confidence, it’s challenging being viewed and respected as a successful leader. Ineffective leadership is often the cause for increased stress, high turnover, low morale and loss of productivity. Common challenges leaders report are:

    • lack of confidence
    • not feeling respected
    • ineffectively communicating new ideas or opinions
    • fear of failure or struggling with imposter syndrome
    • unsure of what leadership style to adopt

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Will my company cover the cost of a communication and leadership development class?

    Many companies will cover the cost because it is considered to be professional development and clear communication and effective leadership is a priority goal for most corporations. You may want to contact your human resources manager to see if that is an option.

    What is I miss a class?

    We understand conflicts with scheduling. Not to worry. The class will be recorded and you can view it when it is convenient for you.

    What are the advantages of taking a small group, communication and leadership workshop?

    It is very beneficial to partner with other people. Like you, they have similar communication and voice habits and leadership goals. The small group creates an extremely supportive and safe environment to practice exercises receive helpful feedback. Participants offer sincere comments and recommendations that often carry as much weight as the instructor because it is coming from a peer who may have more or different professional experience from you. Participants bond and is often a great networking opportunity as well.

    Is this as good as private coaching?

    Certainly. Often better than private instruction. We keep the group size small for individual attention. You will have a speech and voice assessment and poor or unhelpful speech voice habits will be identified. You will develop a leadership plan and learn from other points of view from the group discussion. There is tremendous benefit from working in a small group as people are there for the same reasons. It is a very supportive environment. Great comments and discussion come from the group experience.

    Do the online participants feel included in the group?

    Absolutely! Participants will be partnered with other classmates for practice and then receive hands-on feedback from the instructor. The workshop will never exceed 8 participants allowing for custom feedback and coaching. There are partner exercise and coaching in every class.

    Look What Former Clients Say About Working with Us!

    “I am a vet with a lot of experience and education. What I didn’t have was the ability to speak with confidence. I would speak with a lot of up-tones and that made me sound uncertain. After working with Liz I am aware of how I come across to others. I sounded “cringeworthy” when I would listen to myself on recordings. My speech sounded immature. After working with Liz all of that has gone away. I sound confident. She is very good at what she does. She is able to hear what is off and very politely bring your attention to it. She will help you to sound great. I am going to have her train my staff. She is fun with great energy. She is an excellent coach.”

    - Brenda

    “I didn’t present myself well and sound credible. Liz has been very helpful on what I should do and not do. I am very cognizant of the changes I want to make. When I would introduce myself, I would run out of breath. Liz taught me how to diaphragm breathe. It’s so nice to talk and not run out of breath now. All of what Liz has taught me has been very helpful and this will certainly help me in my career.”
