But what if we could train leaders to lead well and in any situation simply by improving confidence? What if we could learn the tools to build confidence that lasts and levels up our entire team?

In this live or virtual experience, Erik uses the Three T’s of Confidence to equip new and seasoned leaders to help them build authentic confidence, navigate change, and find balance in an unbalanced world.

REDEFINING COMMUNICATION FOR MAXIMUM RESULTS

What if everyone in your organization could communicate with confidence, effectiveness, and – dare we say – JOY?

We have all had the feeling of being “on mute,” not being heard or understood. Moreover, we have put ourselves “on mute, ” holding back what we want to say because we fear being wrong, rejected, or ridiculed. In addition, the ever-changing workplace stifles authentic communication, limiting progress and results.

In this live or virtual experience, Erik Dominguez redefines communication leveraging his 25 years of experience as a speaker and speaking coach to reimagine communication and how we can connect with clients, teams, and partners in a way that creates authenticity, empowerment, and RESULTS!

If your team is ready to break through communication barriers and inefficiencies, Erik’s team-oriented approach will equip leaders with the mindsets and tools to come off mute, speak up, and speak easy!

Participants will:

  • Learn and explore the obstacles to communication and connection
  • Apply science-backed strategies to communicate with impact and authenticity
  • Reimagine what it means to communicate with confidence

“Great presentation!! The team connected so well with your message that I heard them repeatedly throughout the week reference your 3 T’s and how they were going to use it in their territory. Powerful message at the perfect time. Thank you for being our guest.”

“Erik spoke to the Startup Champions Summit we hosted in Des Moines in October 2021. He a rockstar when it comes to being in front of a crowd while being authentic. His message and keynote about “being in the middle” hit home to both our audience and to me personally. It made me think, and of course, write notes down so I wouldn’t forget! 5 Stars would recommend him, and I look forward to working with him! Thanks, Erik.”
