Walking Back is Not the Direction You Want to Go

Unless you’re “The Teflon Donald” Trump, you’ve probably said something that you later regretted.  While The Donald embraces his faux pas as a branding initiative, and others are able to escape theirs without a scratch, the rest of us are not so lucky.  Any senior executive unaccustomed to public speaking can no longer “learn on the job.”

The communication strategies required to avoid misstatements are not difficult to learn.  Breaking old habits, however, is more difficult.  If you find yourself walking back earlier comments more often than you should, I can help.

I will write what you say, coach you on how to say it, and stand by to whisper in your ear as you say it.  I can even say it for you.  Otherwise, it’s up to you.
