You are unique and therefore our cooperation should be, too. The success factors for communication and public speaking – in terms of speech, appearance, and presentation – may be largely the same. But, you are one-of-a-kind. Your personality, experience, context, and purposes of speaking are unique. Group training follows a given structure, imparts the knowledge and skills relevant to most participants. Why should you devote to topics that have no or only a small advantage for you? One of my mentors told me: make the difference that makes the most interesting difference!
That’s why none of the training and coaching I do is the same. I always design them to suit the participants.
What could be more intense than working directly with the coach or coach? Individual training and coaching allow you to work on exactly what is relevant for you. In the way that suits you best.
1. In private
Discretion is for some people quite an issue that wants to be considered. Especially people in responsible positions and with a high degree of public awareness prefer discretion. In a private setting, it is much easier to open up and to deal with feedback.
2. Specific goals
The further you have evolved, the more specific are your questions, your topics, your goals. Proven course plans give you indications of what might be of interest to you. But in the individual training and coaching, we concentrate on what has the desired benefit for you. You decide!
3. Personal strengths and potential
With your strengths, you have come to where you are today. It is therefore important to promote your strengths as well as to awaken your potential.
4. Own target groups
To convincingly present yourself and your message works only if it suits you and your audience. In individual training, we make sure that your communication and presentation style fits you and your target groups.
You get full attention. Everything is focusing on you and your goals. Does that sound good?
You are much more flexible in terms of content and time in individual training. Duration and time intervals are determined based on your resources and recommendations. This leaves enough time to turn the insights into knowledge and skills. You decide how long it will take for you to do this.
Individual training and coaching can help you unlock your true potential. Knowledge without execution does not get you across the finish line. One of the greatest challenges for many public speakers is the difference between having the knowledge accessible and learning, absorbing, applying and implementing that learning in a way that works for each unique individual. That is where coaching with me comes in.
I offer group training because many people want to learn in a group. A common reason is to get feedback from other attendees. From the coach’s point of view, however, the feedback from course participants is often not so helpful and even requires additional effort to correct it. Constructive feedback in 1:1 sessions is much more helpful.
Do you want to talk with me about your goals and concerns? Then just give me a call or send me a message.
