Coaching programs are structured to accommodate the experience, duties, and temperament of top executives who require more sophisticated, often one-on-one, approaches.

Coaching sessions for the chairman or chief executive can be conducted privately, on a one-on-one basis or in a group of five or fewer senior executives or less, or may be broken into two-to-four hour segments and conducted at different times or on different days to accommodate top executive schedules.

Training programs are targeted to middle level management, local plant, mill, or divisional office managers.

Training programs for spokespersons are provided as in-house workshops, custom-tailored to specific client needs. The most frequently used training format is the single, full-day session in one subject area for up to five participants. However, media, presentational, or testimony coaching modules may be combined into one and one-half or two-day programs.
