Case Studies | Innovative Leadership creates ROI

~ From Kelly F.G. | C-Suite Executive

“I can now take command of a room better than professionals with far more experience in my field.

Attending Cream of the Crop Leaders’ Executive Presence Training changed me for the better, and the changes continue to extend beyond my career.  The combined compassion, expertise, and delivery of feedback transformed my approach to myself and actually changed my perceptions, my behavior, and even my posture. I no longer live in my own head, surrounded by the fear that “I am not enough”.  I no longer feel invisible.

I can now take command of a room better than professionals with far more experience in my field.  And the thinking tools of top performers have rendered me (the ultimate nervous-Nelly) to be level-headed and calm at times of high pressure.  I was even able walk down the aisle like royalty at my wedding this past fall.

Over a year later, I am a better leader, friend, and person as a result of your training.  Thank you!”

~ Dave F. (Executive Team Member)

Our organization began by sending the executive team through the Executive Presence Training with Cream of the Crop Leaders. Most people expected “training” in the traditional sense of learning new information. But that’s not really what this is. Working with Dan and Sioux is a learning experience. It encourages and challenges participants to get in touch with their potential as leaders and seek to fulfill on that potential. As a result, each of us in the leadership team saw one another become larger and more powerful versions of ourselves. That was an exciting thing to see. As you see others become more powerful and influential, it becomes like a virtuous cycle, and you find yourself investing more of yourself in the program as well. In addition, the executive team bonded very strongly by virtue of the weekend together. Subsequent to that, we decided to enroll the next level of leadership and ultimately keep moving the entire company through the training. My recommendation would be to start with the leadership team and proceed from there.

[How would you rate the professionalism of the people conducting the training?]

Extremely professional. Dan and Sioux are a class act. Prior to joining my current company, I was a VP and SVP of a $2B publishing company and have been through many executive and leadership training programs during my career. This was by far the best. Dan and Sioux are able to challenge people to be transformational leaders, to make themselves vulnerable and open to change, and to bring that back to their organizations — and yet they are very capable and able to keep it down to Earth.

[What was the best thing about the training?]

On a group level, the virtuous cycle I referred to was an amazing thing to experience. I literally watched people transform in front of me, to find their most powerful versions of themselves, and share that with others. On a personal level, I took away from Dan and Sioux a new understanding of power. I realized that in my entire life I have viewed power in interpersonal relationships as a zero-sum game — that is to say, if one person has more power in the interaction, then the other has less. As a result, I often found that in order to help others feel more powerful I would compromise or reduce my own power in the interaction. What I discovered is that power is not a zero-sum game. This is not something Dan or Sioux explicitly said or communicated. It just became obvious. And I realized that I could project immense power in front of another individual, a group, or even a large audience, and yet it did not have to be intimidating or overbearing, that the power I projected could in fact help amplify the power of the others as well. I have brought this back to my everyday work where it helps me amplify the impact of my entire team

[What do you think was the impact of this training within your team?]

Let me give you a specific example: One of my Delivery Leaders (akin to a project manager) has looked for ways to expand her repertoire and become a stronger leader with more responsibility. She expressed a lot of interest in learning and acquiring the skills to take a bigger role, including learning some executive consulting skills, project management skills, etc. She was looking for things she could learn to do. Through the Executive Presence Training, I saw her pivot away from learning more impactful things to do and toward learning more impactful ways to be. For her, it wasn’t about learning a technique or method to apply. But rather, it was about learning how to get in touch with how much she cares about the success of her clients, and to bring that depth of care to her interactions with them. They see it. They feel it. And they respond to it. And it has resulted in the transformation of that particular client from a single project client into a multi-million dollar, multi-project account. And it has resulted in the transformation of that employee from a manager of a project into a leader running an account.

Here’s the kicker: Every time that happens, our business grows. And each time an employee steps up from being a mere manager into being an effective leader, they multiply their impact and drive even more success with the people with whom they work.

~ Peg F. | Investment Executive

“During a recent investment presentation in front of 100 sophisticated and high net-worth attendees, I spoke clearly, slowly – and with confidence.

Prior to The Executive Presence Training I would not have been able to convey my message as well as I did.   I also politely disagreed with one of my panelists regarding factors driving an investment’s future returns.  Prior to the training, I would have never been to do so without it coming across in a negative manner. 

After the speech, people came up to me and sought out my opinion on important issues surrounding the investment. I was told by the conference organizers that I did a great job.

Cream of the Crop Leaders gave me the confidence to be the best that I can be.”

From Cynthia W. | Executive Director

“What can I say?  Life-changing. This training really changed my life.  It was absolutely instrumental.

As Executive Director, I use the skills every day in my interactions with employees and clients.  As a result of The Executive Presence Training I am less apologetic about my presence and my right to take up others time and attention.  I now project a sense that my words matter.   

Secondly, as a result of The Executive Presence Training, clients are more likely to do business with the company I represent. The training taught me how to connect with and create trust with potential clients.  Prior to the training, I’d never felt confident in my initial attempt at ‘small talk’.  However, The Executive Presence Training taught me how to develop rapport based on genuine connection.  Now, my clients feel deeply understood, and this creates trust.  

What can I say?  Life-changing. This training really changed my life.  It was absolutely instrumental.”

~ From P.F. | Financial Industry Executive

“As an executive in a high-powered financial industry, the skills I learned in the Cream of the Crop Leaders’ executive presence training have been absolutely fundamental.

Completely unique, The Executive Presence Training teaches you how to pull your inner strength to the surface, and show your true and highest self to your audience, rather than faking a confident persona.  It taught me how to remain centered, to slow down and to shine during my presentations.

I watched other participants’ presentation skills vastly improve over a very short period of time and I developed a close bond with them.  It was also fun! I wish I could take the course over and over again.”

~ Tristan M. | Sales Leader

“Prior to the training, I’d always seen myself as confident.   After all, I had become ultra-competent in the delivery of my sales product message and I could fire off relevant company information in a manner that I thought made me look quite like an industry expert.

It was not until after I took part in the Cream of the Crop Leaders’ Executive Presence Training that I learned that this behavior could leave others feeling distant from me, prevent clients from trusting me and my product, and hinder employees in fully welcoming my guidance.  Cream of the Crop Leaders helped me to see myself clearly – and taught me skills to connect with others. The exercises, feedback and group instruction taught me how to truly engage others and deliver my message from the heart.  I immediately connected with others and built the levels of trust that I had always strived for.  I continue to use the training skills in so many ways: in relationship building with potential clients, in mentor opportunities with my employees, and in building trust and rapport with folks higher in the corporate hierarchy.”

~ Tristan M. | Sales Leader

“This training has definitely been very beneficial!   As a direct result of your training, I created both a pay raise and promotion.

After The Executive Presence Training, I felt completely confident alerting leadership staff that I was unhappy with my current salary.  I sat down with one of my bosses and – with confidence – proposed a salary that I believed I deserved.  When I met with my company leader, I was scared but I used The Executive Presence Training tools to look and feel unapologetic, worthy, and confident.  It worked. I received a pay raise – and I was promoted to a project manager handling important accounts!  This training has definitely been very beneficial!   As a direct result of your training, I created both a pay raise and promotion.

I also speak my mind more in meetings, and even in emails.  In essence, this training helped me a lot:  I move forward, I stand in my confidence and I believe that what I say matters. 

 By the way, I even use these skills with my partner.  It works.”
