No one runs a marathon without training.
Same with public speaking. You need practice. And you need a coach.
Steve Jobs used to practice his speeches for two solid days.
Lee can guide you to communicate better and be more confident in front of an audience of any size. She has coached entrepreneurs, sales people, actors, and managers at every level. Having been an actress on stage, she will share the secrets that actors have known for eons. Most importantly, she will help you tap in to the core of your message and engage your audience.
The great thing is…you can practice on your own schedule in the privacy of your home or office and send Lee your practice sessions for feedback.
Please e-mail Lee and she will tell you more about the “workout”with PresentationGym!
I live in a wonderful old house and, after many exterior upgrades and replacements, it was finally time for a fun interior renovation. The plans and the contractor were in place and I was very excited. Everything in the space had to be cleared which included my office, dense with file cabinets. My home was already full to the brim; 20 years of accumulation plus additional influx after cleaning out my childhood home where my parents had lived for 50 years. The task ahead felt daunting, to say the least. I needed a ‘thinking partner’, and immediately contacted Lee.
What I love about working with Lee is how she blends her professional coaching skills with her expertise in the home furnishings industry; they are equally valuable in this arena. Lee was creative, caring, and curious when it came to assessing my situation and recommending options. Before taking any action, Lee looked at every room in my home, while finding out what mattered most to me through her gentle, supportive, and assuring process. I felt confident in Lee’s guidance.
In order to ‘clear some space’, we identified categories that would make the biggest impact; clothing and bedding were the first targets. Lee worked side-by-side with me, asking questions and making observations, all of which helped me to let go of items. At the end of the session, there was an enormous amount of “stuff” in my car, ready for donation. I also had a set of questions to ask myself when working alone between sessions. What a great feeling to have made significant progress in one session!
It is that great feeling that spurs continuing action. Lee is masterful in anchoring that feeling through the combination of ‘hands on’ sessions and intermittent coaching sessions. Not only does the project at hand resolve itself, one develops the capacity to continue ‘clearing’ what is no longer desired; physical “stuff”, extra body pounds, old thoughts. Lee makes the process of ‘letting go’ a pleasure.
