"Our company has put 200+ leaders through Todd Mitchem's coaching developmental leadership program content.  We started with 50 people and quickly extended.  This has not been cheap, but it has been effective!

This program has literally changed our company.  Our team member engagement scores have skyrocketed at the corporate office.  There are many cases of a catharsis for some of our leaders - they were "commercially" successful but not good to work with (sometimes terrible to work with).  Now many of them have both that Commercial AND Cultural success

We are more open and honest than we used to be, and we have gone from blame to a personal ownership that had not been seen before. 

Company alumni have come back to visit and can't believe how different the place is (we had a pretty bad reputation as a crummy place to work)

Our program included a 360 feedback Todd guided us through (which was pretty brutal for some people) followed by programs that helped solve many of the issues that surfaced.  For us it was helpful for the 360 feedback to build the burning platform for needed change - some people were honestly unaware that they had significant leadership issues

Todd's executive coaching 1-on-1 has been a very useful addition to his program and has literally changed the way our company structure functions

Bottom line - Todd and his program has fundamentally changed our company for the better."

"It's been a pleasure working with Todd over the years. Todd invests the necessary time up front to understand our business as well as the challenges our team face each and every day. This enables him to gain immediate credibility with the Leadership Team and the team attending his experiential training workshops. At the end of the day, I'm confident that Todd will not only connect the dots for the team but more importantly help them self-discover why they should be approaching their opportunity from a new perspective. He truly loves what he does and it shows each and every time he takes center stage."

PRESENTATION SKILLS Learning to capture your audience.

Timing - Full Day - 6-8 hours depending on group size.

As an accomplished speaker, facilitator, and leader, Todd Mitchem can carry a message that engages the audience every time.  Now, and for a limited time, Todd is offering to come to your company and teach you the same skills that the has utilized for audiences of 5 - 5000.  In this all day workshop your team will learn: 

1) What's the Point - Findng your core message is critical.  Most presenters smash their points together.  In this segment you will learn to get to the point of your conversation with your audience quickly.

2) Be Authentic - Most audience members who are dissatisfied with a speaker's presentation report that they felt the speaker did not "believe the content" or that the speaker was not authentic.  We live in a world of hyper authenticity, and in this workshop you will learn the hidden power of authenticity.

3) Converse with the audience - Did you know that your audience for ANY presentation is actually talking to you, in their heads?  If you engage an audience and do not understand the presentation is actually a conversation with them, you will miss opportunities to connect and truly land your message.  In this section, you will learn the triggers that make audiences pay attention and learn how to communicate with them at every moment.

Each class is limited to 15 people and each person will prepare a 3min presentation which will be recorded, played back and critiqued for improvement.
