Being able to communicate effectively is perhaps the most important of all life skills. It is what enables us to pass information to other people and to understand what is said to us.
The ability to communicate effectively with superiors, colleagues, and staff is essential, no matter what industry you work in. It involves at least one sender, a message, and a recipient. This may sound simple, but communication is actually a very complex subject.

Direct communication creates unexpected opportunities. Let your voices be heard and accelerate your success now.
A bit about Tom:
For more than twenty years, Tom has been coaching senior leaders to achieve “The Look & Sound of Leadership™” at companies like Disney, Mattel, HP, and Citi.
For some executives “The Look & Sound of Leadership” means developing executive presence; for others, it’s polishing their leadership skills for a promotion; for others, it’s helping them understand their impact on others and giving them tools to rein themselves in.
The insight he developed as an Executive Coach allows him to bring creative, experiential challenges to team meetings and off-sites, helping the group achieve rich outcomes. And the same timing, comedy, and energy that made Tom a successful actor on television and director in theatre distinguish the keynote speaking and corporate training he deliver on all aspects of communication skills.
Tom’s podcast, “The Look & Sound of Leadership,” airing since 2008, is consistently cited as “What’s Hot” in the Business category on iTunes.
Tom is a Senior Executive Coach on the rosters of many coaching consortiums across the country. He’s active with the International Coach Federation (ICF) and the Association of Talent Development (ATD) which, in 2010, awarded him with their Lifetime Award for continuing contributions to the field of training and development.
