Worth the Effort.

Learning Through Doing is our Instructional Credo.  Because our teaching methods are so interactive, they can create muscle memory for cumulative, lifelong benefits.

  • 90 Doing/10 Didactic:   Highly-focused instruction is given only briefly (about 10% of each hour) followed immediately by active application (about 90% of each hour).  Learning through Doing is our instructional credo.  Our Executive Presence Workshop participants are intellectually stimulated, emotionally engaged and genuinely invested in being their truest, biggest selves.
  • Teaching tools and techniques, all designed to keep our executive presence training participants actively engaged, include: Dyad exercises (working with one other person), Video Feedback (film and group review of how one presents themselves), small group exploration, multimedia presentations, instructor feedback, giving and receiving peer feedback, large group sharing and discussion, and real-world application exercises.  Our Executive Presence Workshop will be unlike any training you’ve ever experienced.
