Who We Are

Our Vision

San Francisco Executive Presence Training

The best transformational leadership experience.


Far from business stuffy, our Executive Presence Training is utterly transformational, 90% interactive and a powerful team-building experience.

What Is It?  Have you ever noticed how some people – without saying a word – radiate a calm, commanding authority that automatically generates respect and high-performance?  You’ve seen it before: when these people walk in a room, everyone sits up a bit straighter, brushes off excuses, and gets down to business. These commanding individuals have a way of being that commands respect, creates top performance, cements relationships with key stakeholders – and generates continued loyalty and new growth.  Our Executive Presence Training shows each participant how to radiate similar levels of power, confidence and warm credibility. This creates buy-in and builds solid relationships. Because the power we teach becomes REAL – the effect is not a stiff, manufactured leadership persona. Instead, each participant re-kindles his/her own latent power and develops his/her own unique version of relational executive power.  And because the learned power is based in authenticity, people respond favorably. The way that we teach executive presence works. Even experienced senior and C-Suite leaders benefit from this training.

Executive Presence for Sales Professionals

Executive Presence for Sales Professionals:

Just like you, customers choose the most credible, trustworthy, and likable and sales person. Without executive presence, your best sales techniques appear sale-sy, and no one wants to buy from a shark. After all, research shows that sales ranks in the lowest 10 percent of professions people trust (Gallup, 2013).

Participants in our The Executive Presence Training will repeatedly role play a relaxed and engaging way of being that creates credibility and buy-in with prospective and existing clients, key stakeholders, colleagues and employees.

“If building relationships is the key to sales success, then trust is the foundation. Sales are made when trust exists. And trust grows in conversations. Maintain that trust and customers may become buyers for life.” Todd Duncan, Success Magazine

EP for Customer Service

Executive Presence for Customer Service Training:

The Executive Presence Training is customer service training for the serious five-star aspiring institution. Here’s what we know and what we teach: Five-star customer care is elegant, calm and present. It stems from a warm, intentional way of being that is customer-focused. It’s more of a “sweep-you-off-your-feet” way of being, than a squeaky-cheerleader “Hi!”. Our Executive Presence Training will teach both your executive team and your line staff how to interact with customers in a way that makes them purr – and who doesn’t want to be the cat’s meow? As an added benefit, our executive-presence based customer confidence training is inherently teambuilding.

If you’re serious about creating a world class customer care culture, our Executive Presence Training is your blueprint.  

Even your most training-worn and senior leaders will leave our Executive Presence Training exhilarated, motivated, unstoppable – and grateful – to you.
