EXECUTIVE COMMUNICATION COACH SUCCESS PLAN
Together, you and Ira will develop a personalized executive communication coach Success Plan to help you reach your goals.
Ira provides BOTH coaching advice (strategy) and hands-on (tactics) help in your executive communication coach sessions. You will work in 6 skill- and confidence-building categories (see drop down table below with “+”). As you build your skills, you will have access to a variety of Smart Exercises and practice drills for you to work on during and in between our meetings.
Before we talk, please ensure your answer to each question is an enthusiastic “Yes.”
- I am ready to try new things… that may be uncomfortable
- I will diligently try to complete the Smart Exercises, practice drills, and preparation on time
- I want to invest in my future success
