Coaching for Leadership
On a bespoke basis, Temin and Company works with over 20 CEOs around the world, helping them to continually refine their strategic vision, and then implement that vision throughout their organizations.
Both for continuing and new leaders, Temin and Company helps C-suite executives and boards increase their impact, clarity and effectiveness, as well as cultivate resilience in the face of market, business and personal challenges.
Ideas are paramount, but without spectacular delivery, their power is muted.
Temin and Company works with leaders at the highest levels to hone their voice, their delivery, their messages and their remarks, from the boardroom to road shows to the world’s most prestigious thought leadership forums.
Davia Temin has more than 20 years of experience as a high-level communications coach, beginning when she ran marketing for some of the world’s top financial services firms and universities. She has worked with hundreds of Chairmen and CEOs, board members, corporate leaders, bankers, consultants, media executives, scientists, authors, college and university presidents, foundation heads, politicians and global leaders.
Usually hired by the board or the C-suite, Ms. Temin and her colleagues work on a one-to-one basis, tailoring presentation skills training and speech coaching to the specific needs of the client. We conduct ongoing retainer work for leaders with a high global presence. Often, heads of companies then ask Temin to work with their senior leadership teams, in order to raise the bar for the entire organization.
Impact, inspiration and outstanding performance are the goals, as Temin and Company helps leaders find, refine and project their “voice” to their key audiences.
The media – be it print, broadcast or social – is not only ubiquitous, but today defines the perception and reputation of almost every corporation, company, organization and individual.
Reputations are built and lost at the speed of electrons. Knowing how to best communicate one’s message to the media, in good times and in crisis, is therefore a management and leadership imperative.
Temin and Company has unparalleled experience in media training and strategy.
Never formulaic or reductionist, but based on a career of highly successful and respectful media relations, Temin and Company tailors media training to the express needs of the leaders being trained, and the media they wish to address.
Strategic, nuanced, authentic and substantive, Temin and Company’s media training helps executives and leaders become respected and valued sources for the professional media, in times of both crisis and opportunity.
