How 1:1 Coaching Can Help

This is your time to use however you’d like. Our Communication Coaches will provide structure to accomplish your objectives within the time allowed. While you are not limited to these categories, many professionals engage us for:

Skill building

Improve your general presentation or virtual meeting facilitation skills. Or tackle more specific topics such as handling tough questions, thinking on your feet, or crafting a narrative. Receive ongoing guidance to the crucial development questions: “What’s working?” “What’s not working?” “What could be better?” and “Why?”

situational preparation

Have an upcoming meeting, interview, speaking engagement, presentation, or on-camera appearance? Learn practical public speaking tips to ease your nerves in the spotlight, command presence, create rapport with an audience of any size, understand question and answer techniques, and even hone your content and delivery with help from a Coach. 

ONGOING ENGAGEMENT

If you’ve taken an Own The Room in-person or virtual training course, use this time for continued learning with your Communication Coach: share experiences & reflection, receive feedback, and personalized recommendations for further growth, and learn advanced content.
