FINDING AND SHAPING YOUR KEY STORIES
As a leader, you navigate big challenges every day. And your greatest resources are often the critical insights gained from your own life experiences. But translating those into useable stories – to create connection and share information with team members, board members or bigger audiences in a clear and memorable way – can prove challenging, even for the best leaders.
Maybe your talks end in blank stares. Maybe you’re downloading too much data on your audience. Or maybe your stories go on “a bit” too long.
In our 1-on-1 coaching, we’ll help you clarify your goals – as a communicator and as a leader. We’ll share techniques and help you build capacity so you can develop a repertoire of stories you love to tell. With these stories, you’ll share your best data, convey your key messages and lay down your vision in a way that will inspire action in the days and months to come.
“Before I worked with Jay, I’d give a presentation and people would always be cordial. But after I began using my stories, I couldn’t believe the engagement and connection. People coming up and hugging me, asking questions, wanting to really understand my journey – and Esalen’s journey as well. Now I see stories everywhere…and I am learning how to use them.”
- Tricia McEntee, CEO, Esalen Institute
“Not only was Jay able to make me a far better story-teller, he was able to make me a far better presenter by helping me shape my presentations to more effectively meet the needs of each client. I’ve come to rely on his wisdom, insight, and his ability to see both the big picture and the small details that make a presentation soar.”
