The Moment of Truth Workshop

We’re pretty sure every grandmother gives the same advice: When Life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. Well, 2020 gave us an orchard full of lemons. The way we work changed more in March than it had in last decade. Our clients had to pivot, adjust, and rethink what they do and how they do it. To serve their customers, many had to accelerate their digital transformation plans and saw five years of transformation in five months. We’ve been honored to help them bring their newest flavors to the lemonade stand.

Along the way, we came up with our own unique flavor that we’re pretty proud of. The Moment of Truth presentation skills training allows us to leverage the pivot to the virtual enterprise and help our clients tell a powerful, confident story using a medium that makes few people feel comfortable or confident. Here’s why it’s special.

Three World-Class Points of View

Every coach brings their own style and sensibility, and some clients have said comparing Dick, Amy, and Andrew is like comparing apples, oranges, and bananas. We think it’s more like apples, fish, and granite. Our three perspectives together give any workshop remarkable depth and dimension, but getting all three of us on-site for a full day can be a logistical challenge. Our virtual Moment of Truth package gives workshop participants multiple opportunities to work with each of us, take advantage of our combined decades of coaching expertise, and harness our particular strengths.

Brief Bursts of Brilliance

Remote engagement provides us with a remarkable opportunity. The Moment of Truth is a series of two-and-a-half-hour sessions spread over two to four weeks. Each session offers intense exploration and practice and drills deeply into a specific Power of Persuasion tool. Participants share their work with their peers and collaborate on better practices, and the session ends while energy, focus, and enthusiasm are high. The spotlight then moves to the next tool.

Technology and the Arithmetic of Excellence

In every workshop, we strive to give each participant as much practice time and one-on-one attention as possible. It’s simple math: time / number of participants. Thanks to the technology of virtual engagement, The Moment of Truth has the math on its side. We use plenary sessions to unpack the tools, then shift seamlessly and instantly to practice in breakout rooms led by multiple coaches. Each participant gets ample time in the spotlight and generous one-on-one attention from the coach. The team gets a trip to the communication gym, collaborating around better practices for message and delivery.

Now is the Time for Presentation Skills Training

In this moment in time, every opportunity we have to persuade, to create consensus or move the needle exists in a virtual engagement. The Moment of Truth was designed for this moment in time.

If you have a team of eight to sixteen emerging thought leaders who need to tell their story or land their message in this moment in time, The Moment of Truth is for you.
