Into The Spotlight

Know how to shine in the spotlight and experience being comfortable when the attention is focused on you. Bring the whole of yourself your professional life and learn how to maintain it in the moments of high stakes or high pressure.  This programme enables you to step out of the shadows with ease and onto your stage with confidence and authority.

Into the spotlight supports organisations seeking to build more inclusive environments by encouraging all the voices from across their system to be heard.  The work develops confidence and personal narrative for professionals who may currently feel anxious, uncomfortable or uncertain about stepping out. It does so by drawing on a blend of tried and tested methods and exercises that are grounded in the performing arts and executive coaching.

Pre-programme briefing

Your lead coach will join a pre-programme discussion to understand the context of the development activity so that our work can be tailored directly towards your aims and outcomes.
