The talent required to achieve a C-suite position or board appointment does not always include the executive communication training needed to excel in those positions. Upon promotion, many executives find their current communication skills don’t meet the demands of their new roles. Compounding the problem is the reality that senior executives rarely receive objective, constructive feedback.
No one wants to offend the boss, so executives are likely to hear, “You did a nice job,” following their presentations. But at a C-suite level, “a nice job” won’t cut it. Executives need honest feedback and the opportunity to improve their skills. Executive presentation coaching is a essential for an executive who desires to be successful. If they’ve benefited from presentation training in the past, they may think that they have the public speaking domain covered. However, the ability of C-level and senior executives to manage the full range of public speaking situations – from media interviews, to speeches, to internal presentations – with an authentic and trust-inspiring presence, cannot be understated.
To stay at the top of the game, one needs to acknowledge when the game has changed. Whatever your executive’s current skill level, we will help them keep abreast of their communication abilities to establish — or refine — their voice as a leader.
The Franchetti group understands the art of communication, and the overwhelming importance of it. They teach you what good and bad communication does to your business and then skillfully teach you how to become comfortable with it and master it!
Jack is one of the most experienced media trainers with whom I've had the pleasure to work with….He is always well prepared with the media issues that our clients are facing and he is always well versed on the industries in which our clients operate… Some of my clients at the most senior level have said that Jack's course is one of the best that they've ever taken.
Suzanne’s ability to help speakers plan and deliver powerful presentations is remarkable. From corporate finance professionals to 17- year old high school interns, to the visionary Executive Directors of nonprofit organizations, I have watched Suzanne tailor her work to help her audience masterfully connect with theirs.
