Muscle Memory Intensive
People on all rungs of the corporate ladder know that in order to move up (or stay up) they need to have top-notch communication skills both in formal presentation situations and day-to-day interactions, but learning to cultivate these skills is easier said then done.
We begin here, by training clients to be powerful, persuasive, and authoritative from the outside in. This one-day course focuses on identifying and isolating undermining physical and vocal habits and replacing them with active choices that create an impression of confidence—confidence that can move an audience of one, or thousands, to action, and plant seeds of "executive presence."
Time commitment: eight hours (recommended times: 8am–5pm with an hour for lunch)
Recommended group size: 10–16 participants
Participants will work with two instructors and be videotaped several times for one-on-one critique.
The morning session focuses on raising one's awareness of personal physical and vocal habits, while learning the skills and exercises for improvement. We will drill down into the causes of "stage fright" and how to manage it, as well as the mental processes that keep us from being our best.
The afternoon session focuses on repetition (muscle memory drills). Participants will work in teams of their peers as well as with instructors. Essentially, we will practice practicing. One-on-one critique happens at this time.
Each participant will receive a personal videotaped performance and critique sheets, as well as a whole tool kit of customized exercises and strategies for improvement.
