Peak Career (SVP, EVP, C-Suite)

There is no greater demand on a senior leader than the ability to influence through communication. In these roles, the bar is raised, and the stakes are high. The audiences are more diverse, the formats keep evolving and the expectation is 24/7. Employees want clear vision, compelling strategies and a personal connection that gives their job relevance every day. It takes more than fundamentals; it takes the ability to transform from a competent communicator to a compelling one.

Executive Coaching: Master Storyteller

SW&A’s Master Storyteller program is a new, next-level experience for senior leaders who want to engage every audience. Our program is focused, personal and practical and takes a leader through a tiered approach to accelerate impact and ultimately develop the skills that make communication memorable and repeatable.

Executive Coaching: Compelling Presence

Leadership raises the bar on expectations of communication skills from pushing out information to pulling in people. Every leader can learn to feel confident and comfortable with their employee base, but great leaders learn how to make that employee base feel comfortable. SW&A helps leaders consider expectations, impact and results of personal style.

Executive Coaching: Message Development

Leaders have to be repetitive with messages in order to have an impact on groups, but often executive communication is built one presentation at a time. Consistency and visibility aren’t leveraged as they could be. We can set direction for an executive communication plan and create the storyline and message that helps a leader establish thought leadership, validate vision and strategies, and strengthen visibility across an industry.

Executive Coaching: Transition to a New Role

SW&A helps managers and leaders develop a transition plan to reset their brand and gain insights that shape initial conversations and build trust with a new team.

Executive Coaching: Verbal Assessments

Leaders need to understand their strengths and challenges beyond self-perception which often identifies blind spots they may have with a specific group. Verbal assessments provide additional context by capturing impressions and assumptions about a leader. The anecdotal examples from the conversations help SW&A understand how a leader is perceived and the impact of their communication approach on different groups.

Executive Coaching: Establish Thought Leadership

SW&A identifies the right platform for a leader to build credibility within an industry or within their own company. By developing a storyline that highlights a leader’s perspective and interest, we can help any leader gain visibility and repeatability in their field of expertise.

Executive Coaching: Prepare for Media Interviews

SW&A coaches the skills needed to develop and deliver key messages in a media interview and helps individuals deliver those messages with confidence and credibility. By raising awareness of initial impressions and skills, we’ll build on natural strengths and develop new skills that turn initial impressions into lasting ones.
