“To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been
their finest hour.”

About Communication & Executive Presence program
Oral communication was listed as the#1-rated skill for consulting, healthcare/pharmaceuticals, technology, products/services, and nonprofit/government. It is an essential skill to not be ignored.
We will be sharing unique FIRMSconsulting approaches on how you can dramatically improve the way you speak and come across, and the way you feel when you are speaking.
This program will show you how your voice, confidence, level of influence, and persuasion CAN be transformed beyond what you thought was possible, beyond what people around you thought was possible. The program is focused on helping you communicate with confidence, and influence, be able to hold the attention of clients and colleagues, and dramatically elevate your executive presence.
What Michael will teach?
Would you like to know the principles to communicate as Michael does?
Do you know Michael rarely prepares his episode material in advance for the thousands of videos on StrategyTraining.com? He speaks from memory and uses his own techniques to build a compelling argument.
In the podcasts, with some of the top business thinkers in the world – Tim Koller, Ram Charan, Gary Hamel, etc. – Michael manages the discussion with no notes and often no preparation. We receive consistent feedback from top executives in the world that it was the best interview they ever had or the best they had in a long time. How can he hold so many high-level discussions daily on such a wide variety of topics? We use an underlying set of principles to manage the conversation, that we will teach.
Many of you have seen Michael do this during results coaching clinics that run up to 2.5 hours. He is able to keep a conversation moving toward creating value.
If you have watched TCO 1, you will see Michael allow the candidates to ask him a question to which he could not possibly know the answer, and to which he was not warned. Yet, he always delivers a deep insight in his response. We will teach you that underlying technique.
If you have followed the new programs on proposals, exclusive to Legacy members, you will see how we manage meetings to lead to sales. Michael will teach the underlying principles he uses to turn a general meeting into one where a consulting sale is closed.
Imagine you are in a meeting, and you don’t know what to say. How do you say something that is insightful but positions you as someone to be respected and listened to?
How do you manage a discussion where you couldn’t possibly know the answer to any of the questions being posed to you? Michael is a master at this and will teach you the core principles he uses.
For the skills above, we will primarily teach this to VIPs but some elements will be covered for the Elite level.
In Level 1, Michael will introduce the critical points to be able to articulately speak as above. He uses a set of structuring tools and principles that we will teach.
I will teach you how to speak to hold attention, and Michael will teach you what to say to hold attention. A powerful combination.
There are skills you CAN’T outsource. You can’t delegate it. You can’t decide NOT to develop those skills.
Those skills are;
#1 – Ability to speak.
#2 – Ability to write.
#3 – Ability to think.
This program covers #1 IN DEPTH. And will help you improve #2 and #3 (most of the training here in The Masterplan Program, The Consulting Sales Rainmaker Program, and Insider & Legacy).
Who is right for this program?
This program is for you if any of the below are applicable:
You know you could be a better speaker.
You tend to be ignored in meetings.
You don’t feel comfortable speaking to people.
You don’t feel you present yourself in the best way when speaking to people.
You know you can do big things in your career and business if you can speak with confidence and command people’s attention.
You are willing to work with us to help you find the voice you did not even know you had.
You are aware that oral communication was rated the #1 skill for consulting and many other industries, and you are willing to trust the decades-proven method to help you dramatically improve your speaking skills and the level of executive presence.
You also understand that learning how to command attention and respect, finding your voice, and developing strong communication skills and an influential level of executive presence takes time. And you are willing to put in an honest effort and work with us to help you get results.
A unique 4-part structure
THANK YOU to our FC Insiders for Your Feedback!
You asked to introduce focused career coaching programs. You asked for mentorship opportunities.
Here’s the 4-part structure we’re going to use to make the Communication & Executive Presence coaching even BETTER than any one-on-one program we ever offered …
PART 1 – LIVE SMALL PRIVATE GROUP COACHING SESSIONS (SPG) DURING THE 1ST, 2ND, AND 3RD WEEK OF THE MONTH
We also call these results clinics.
Exclusively for C&EP Members.
Guaranteed personalized attention from Michael/Kris.
Interactive SPG/touch-point with Michael/Kris, giving individual feedback to participants as they progress through the critical path outlined in the training program, with a goal of progressing towards their goal.
You will complete steps of the critical path leading to your goal.
We review your progress/material submitted/your questions during the 1st, 2nd and 3rd week of the month, and provide personalized feedback.
You have an opportunity to get your most critical question answered during the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd week of the month.
If you are stuck with implementing the steps in the program, you can get guidance in the SPG.
You can call in from a hotel room, airport lounge, or your home office. We will select a time that is the best compromise for the whole group.
Regular SPG calls allow you to have consistent feedback as you are progressing through the critical path outlined in the training program.
Can’t attend some sessions live? Submit your questions to review, we’ll answer them during the results clinic session and you’ll get our feedback in the VIDEO REPLAY.
Watch us mentor other participants, and learn from them and alongside them.
You will see the feedback we offer them and see the progress they make.
You are not just learning from your feedback, but from all the members on the call – shorten your learning curve.
This is of greater value than you may realize and real breakthroughs often come from an idea triggered by listening to feedback for another participant.
Troubleshoot your most pressing communication and executive presence development issues and goals.
Ensuring participants do not get stuck or stagnate. Clients said they need bi-weekly or at least monthly interaction with us to use our formidable tools and methodologies to help them maximize the results they can achieve. The duration of the sessions depends on what participants need. We schedule 1 hour but it is not uncommon for sessions to be around 1.5 to 2 hours long.
What are the Dates?
You tell US!
Vote on time and day of the week options. Approximately Saturday or Sunday 3pm PST on most weeks, so you can take the call in private and without stress. We will pick the best compromise time for everyone, including Michael.
