​The ​Surprising path to executive skills - explained

Most business professionals hit a ceiling. It's the "what got you here won't get you there" effect. And the ceiling is real.

​​Why? Higher roles demand stronger confidence, stronger skills, and enlarged vision. We intuitively understand these needs. Yet gaining the new strengths feels daunting, puzzling, scary.  

It doesn't have to be so hard, but most people miss a key observation:

​Executive leadership is partly performance; creating impressions, impetus, motivation and ​even DRAMA. And we're not prepared for that because the mind shift is too large.  At Words and Presence we'll supply the missing pieces to get your mind and arms around the challenge. But understanding is just the first step. next come live performance practice. With safety but with complete directness, you'll learn to bring your stronger side into view.  And still more, you'll learn to think strategically in a way you can relate and communicate.

Think of it as a boot-camp, acting workshop, and mastermind all in one and all focused and tuned on your progress.

At Words & Presence you'll be working with a well-known expert. Our approach is straightforward and transparent: You will develop  verbiage and delivery completely tailored to your relevant challenges. You will practice and perform interactively to up-level your leadership behavior. Results and satisfaction 100% guaranteed. Twenty minutes free; just click

​You're closer to a break-through than you ​ think.  Let's talk!

​We get it!

finding an executive coach is ​​maddening task​​

​Finding a good coach is ​off putting because:

  • ​Hard to anticipate the experience. Will it be "weird" and hard to manage?​
  • Alternate Long Arrow Right
    ​Wildly diverse  positioning, pricing, and offers makes comparison very difficult
  • ​Mix of program sizes, styles, and qualifications leaves you puzzled on what matters
  • ​Lack of performance qualification and guarantees makes it a crap shoot with real money
  • ​That's why we make it easy to ​just chat and start a helpful relationship that's not about selling

​Skill building is on your list, but...
Every day you ​"think about it" is ​hurting you!

​You don't have to wait for opportunity when you can MAKE opportunity. Highly effective leaders get more options. We'l​l put you there.


​​Some professionals waste years ​doing the wrong things and "thinking about it". When powerful improvement ​beckons that's just sad. ​

​​​Act because: Leadership ​Progress is ​Essential!

  • ​Boss, Investors, customers, clients ​all ​LOOK FOR regular, ​big, Improvement!
  • ​Everyday repetition is making ​BAD ​HABITS harder to change!
  • ​Are you establishing a ​WEAK personal brand?
  • ​IT'S ​better ​LEADING with good decisions that following poor decisions!
  • ​Progress ​= energy: ​Un-lock ​high-quality IDEAS!

“worth 100x for each dollar you command”


I did get amazing reviews from your workshop from last weekend from Startup Leadership Program. I had put a word that you were worth 100x for each dollar you command and post session - they said we should have got you in last year itself. I was like - I told you so :)

“A different kind of creative expert...”


I thought my team briefings were spot on. But high level feedback said I was dull and too detailed. Failing to delineate priorities and accomplishments. Roy helped in both areas to simplify and deliver good and "bad news" and still go forward. He's a different kind of creative expert. Recommended!

“This model is Excellent!”


... really helpful, you are able to articulate where I need to focus improvement and giving me exercises that will help me to break the habit ... This is excellent! thank you.

“Developing & Pitching a New Product Idea”


A great workshop. This helped me develop a new product idea and now I think we're going to make faster progress implementing. Roy also creates an ideal peer collaboration environment.
