At Decker we work with individuals during our Private Coaching sessions to identify their unique Pivot Points – changes they can make that will make a pivotal difference to their own communications experience. Just like improving a golf swing, it’s important not to try and change everything all at once. Rather, our Program Leaders help participants focus on just one or two skills at a time, and then layer on additional skills as progress is made.
The Before/After videos below show improvement over the course of our Communicate To Influence™ Programs. While each individual worked on skills according to their own coaching plan, all of them resulted in significant improvements in the way they come across. You’ll notice increased confidence, energy, and connection with the audience.
After: He owns his material and owns his space. Linking eye communication with movement makes him more confident and in control of the experience. And his strong voice keeps their attention.
Before: Her off-balance stance and soft voice show that she is unconsciously pulling back from the audience.
After: All behaviors are purposeful, and engaging. With a “ready position,” strong voice and directed movement, she communicates like a leader.
After: Improved connection with the audience through greater energy, most notably in movement, having a “lightness of face” and stronger vocal variety.
After: Improved posture and eye communication show confidence, and also allow her to move toward the audience, involving them in what she is saying. And, not a single “um” in there.
After: He eliminated the non-words completely, and began to use the Power of the Pause to allow him time to think and stay on point.
