Coaching to Connect

Better choices for better outcomes.
Making strategic moves is key to impactful improvement. Our coaching programs are designed to help everyone in your organization achieve their goals. We foster self-awareness so you can influence your audience’s perceptions. We guide individuals, departments, and corporate leaders to help you make smart choices and achieve your most important business goals.

How will you connect?

Leadership Coaching

We coach business leaders to navigate change, overcome obstacles, and inspire loyalty among your stakeholders. We help you to connect your unique personal brand with your company’s mission, values, and strategies. Leadership styles vary, but effectiveness does not – it either works, or it doesn’t. As part of our coaching, we will help you find the best ways for you to work more effectively and deliver the results you want for your business.

Organizational/Cultural Coaching

Working with thousands of people over the past 20 years, we’ve found that people want to learn, grow and contribute to something beyond our individual selves. Before employees, management, executives and the C-suite can become ambassadors for your organization, they need to feel an emotional connection to the corporate brand. We help you build that connection, and foster your brand culture. By developing an engaging brand everyone can get behind, your organization can stimulate momentum for ongoing success.

Executive Sales Coaching

Improve the way you connect with clients and prospects by shifting your mindset, and adopting new skills and behaviors. Our executive sales coaching helps you foster relationships in which your prospects view you as a partner for greater success. With new perspectives, refined processes and redefined beliefs, you will be equipped to take immediate action. Our 3-, 6- and 12-month programs give you the ability to achieve measurable results.

Communications Coaching for Departments and Divisions

There are many sub-brands within an organization. These brands may have a positive, negative or neutral internal reputation. Skilset works with division leaders, teams and individual employees to create awareness, develop strategies, and implement tools to help you work better inter- and intra-departmentally. By elevating your department or division’s brand, you can gain a stronger voice at the table and more robust budgets to meet your goals. Fostering stronger connections will also garner greater organizational support. The result is improved performance organization-wide.
We customize our coaching programs to the unique needs of each individual and organization.
Achieve your goals using our innovative tools and techniques.

TEDx Speaker Coaching

While most coaching work occurs as a private 1:1 exchange with my clients, the TEDx speaker coaching is an instance where I can share the coaching experience. And what an amazing experience it was! In this video, my co-coach on this event and I are being interviewed the day of the event and discussing this unique coaching experience. The photos below share several vignettes with the speakers in various stages of rehearsal and performance.
Michele Lando and David Samuels – Entrepreneurs/Coaches. Michele and David (dubbed ‘The Twins’), had the privilege of co-coaching 14 TEDx Speakers. Here they are proudly applauding a speaker on one of their Skype coaching sessions.
Consuelo Martinez – Student, Spoken Word Poet. At age 17, Connie was our youngest speaker. She worked hard, implementing every critique and suggestion. We positioned her to go on stage last as a metaphor for what the future holds. GREAT decision!
Tembi Locke – Actress/Widow. Tembi brought the house to a silent stand-still with her mesmerizing and poignant love story. An actress, Tembi embraced coaching input. She re-wrote her talk and was vulnerable and simply beautiful in her storytelling.
Dr. Tess – Author/Coach. A truly inspirational speaker at any age. . . But seriously, 81?!
Alyesha Wise – Poet/Speaker on rehearsal day. The first standing ovation the day of the event. AMAZING!
Loretta Whitesides – Astronaut/Speaker on rehearsal day with co-speaker coaches, Michele and David.
Consuelo Martinez – Student, Spoken Word Poet. You brought the house down – standing ovation, and well deserved!
Allison Gryphon – Filmmaker and Lolita Lopez – NBC News Broadcaster. You were great coach-ees! You massaged it until it was just perfect!
Nancy Bennett – Content Developer, Two Bit Circus. I loved your comment post-stage…”You gave me just enough rope to hang myself…and just enough guidance to be sure I didn’t”.
