Fact: Authority is an ACT.

Authority is an act, a calculated behavior, with an audience, to achieve an objective. Acts can be noble or hollow - that's subjective. What's not debatable is that when you understand the act, you have the power to create presence and authority. When you don't understand, you'll be at the mercy of the best "amateur" actor in the room: the so called natural leader.

What's so sad about this?
The waste of talent and potential among those left behind. Don't be left behind by amateurs who talk marginally better. Honestly, most "experts" and consultants look in the wrong direction and thus can never explain EP. These trainers have gone prospecting across the wasteland of leadership buzzwords and psychobabble. Then they design courses around hollow abstractions & ideals. Enough!

How to Benefit from this insight.

Learn the components of authentic presence and the structure of a leadership message and .... nothing will happen! Yes. The other classic mistake for trainers and clients is to cling on to the information myth - the idea that knowing equates with capabilities. Sadly wrong and we all know it. Instead, once you gain even a modest grasp of the EP phenomenon you will begin practicing in a safe "studio" setting. Studio is where you learn to perform to obtain objectives. It's easy and fun and progress can be amazingly quick.

Here's how it works....

The layout itself is beyond most expensive business seminars. That's because it features all the dimensions from context to topic to attitude. But there's a lot more. We'll learn and practice three essential skills that virtually guarantee you'll be viewed as executive material. More course details below.

What Clients Have to Say

Shane Melaugh

I thought my team briefings were concise and spot on. But high level feedback said I was dull and too detailed. And, I was failing to delineate priorities and accomplishments. Roy helped me in both these areas learn how to simplify and delivery good and also "bad news" and still go forward. He's a different kind of creative expert. Recommended!

Shane Melaugh

When I promoted innovation, words got in the way. I struggled to make my value proposition compelling and to deliver it with any gravitas. Roy got me immediate improvement and helped elevate my persuasiveness as an expert.
