Coaching to Connect2019-07-05T14:11:08-07:00

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.

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.

We customize our coaching programs to the unique needs of each individual and organization.
Achieve your goals using our innovative tools and techniques.

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.

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.

Client Coaching Corner

Michele is like a Sherpa who helps me traverse communication Everests. She deftly breaks down the complicated issues I share with her, then she empowers me to articulate them and frame them in ways that are easy to communicate and relatable to my audience.

I had the fortunate privilege to work with Michele over the course of several months earlier this year, along with my direct report that had recently joined my team. I had no idea what to expect as attending what I assumed to be “work therapy” was not something I am normally open to. Little did I know, this would turn out to be one of the most impactful and important decisions of my career. This new level of consciousness is what I can personally attest our uptick in productivity and teamwork to.

I can spout (what feels like a bunch of) nonsense at Michele and within one minute she has distilled all of the valuable nuggets into clear, digestible points, and then gives back to me like a wonderful gift wrapped in a big red bow.

I see Michele as one part therapist, one part motivator, and one part career coach. Every time I talk to her I feel better about my professional and personal future. Her advice is as comforting as it is inspiring.

Thank you so much for meeting with us and facilitating that wonderful discussion. I am so thankful our company and group allow for such group coaching sessions. You have a real gift Michele. I am still processing all that was said.

Your insight is incredibly valuable and eye-opening. Thank you for being such a great listener (something I will continue to work on becoming) and for providing such sage advice. I can’t tell you how thankful I am for the opportunity to work with you!

I had a meeting on Friday to discuss an upcoming project and I took to heart the advice you gave me about speaking in a humble manner. It really did work – we had a productive meeting and walked away calm and peaceful. A win in my book!  

While most coaching work occurs as a confidential 1:1 exchange with Michele’s clients, her TEDx speaker coaching is an instance where she can share the coaching experience. And what an amazing experience it was!

MICHELE'S TOP TEN TED TALK TIPS

“Allison and I came in with our rough draft of the talk and it was good, but after ONE coaching session, we made it great. I say this humbly and with modesty because it really comes down to how our speaking coach found the nuggets that were good in the talk and had us think about those and how we could enhance them. We made big changes to our talk but they felt natural and right.”

Michele Lando continues to be our go-to resource when we need executive coaching and facilitation assistance. She’s worked with numerous individuals including a 20-year veteran who is highly competent technically but was not promotable due to his ‘rough around the edges’ inner-personal skills. Michele was able to bring awareness and behavioral change to bear, over a 6 month period, such that we were able to offer the promotion this person had been requesting and retain a valuable employee . . .
