Wondering What Communication Coaching Is Like?

Based on my extensive experience working with thousands of individuals, I know that learning or polishing any skill or behavior takes time and practice. I have found that because of the steep learning curve and most people’s busy schedules, bi-monthly sessions are most effective. Depending on the objectives or goals you would like to accomplish, SpeakEtc. offers convenient 1, 3 & 6 month programs which are designed to bring you the most powerful results.

  • All sessions are personally conducted by me and are customized for your needs. In person sessions are preferred, however, if you are outside of the New York Metro Area, I have worked extremely effectively via Skype.
  • In-person sessions can take place at my office: 241 W 14th St NYC or at your office, if mutually convenient.
  • Improving any skill takes practice. In order to get the most from any of my programs your commitment to work between sessions is important.
  • You will receive personalized bi-weekly assignments.
    Assignments may include: Self-recorded videos or audio files, vocal exercises and other written or verbal tasks. You will also be asked to fill out a client check-in form which will help track progress from the previous session and set a focus and objective for the upcoming session.
  • Email check-in and feedback available between sessions throughout the length of the session package.
  • Coaching methods include but are not limited to: Customized role-plays; creation of outlines, mind-maps; meeting agendas; talking points; review of videos and interviews; compassionately frank verbal feedback
