Connect with me to learn the techniques and secrets of the pros that will elevate your executive presence and charismatic edge, bring value and meaning to your actions, and get you the success you deserve!
I work with the rebels, risk-takers and underdogs. I coach the experimenters, trailblazers and dreamers. And I am passionate about creating an exciting and transformative experience that delivers true value!
I’m part communications strategist, part commercial actor, and part research geek.
A born-n-raised Minnesota girl with nothing more than passion, a studio and a dream, I’ve created a pretty awesome socially conscious business from scratch.
I started out as your typical nerdy kid, socially awkward, and introverted. I completely lacked any grace, and I was oblivious to social codes. But I resolved to conquer my insecurities so I could be one of those normal human beings who could make people like them.
As an actor, I spent years studying the science of how body language tells the story of what is going on inside someone's brain, how demonstrating executive presence and charisma gives a competitive advantage, how a shift in mindset changes everything, and how using story persuades decision makers to move.
To better serve my clients, I have advanced training in Executive Coaching, Leadership Development, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Motivational Interviewing, and Strength-based coaching.
I studied with and have been coached by world class executive coaches, ballroom dancers, top acting coaches, popular news anchors, strategic communications trainers, professional speakers, and motivational trainers.
My hard science approach is based on research done at Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Berkeley and Princeton. I deserve no credit for the science. I just took the best bits out of some rather arcane data to help my own growth.
As a trained commercial actor and spokesperson, I bring over a decade of on-camera experience and working in the media. Training is a mix of assessments, creative communications, sound science and practical tools, with a smidge of snarkiness tossed in for good measure.
"If you hang out with me for too long, I'll brainwash you into believing in yourself and knowing you can achieve your goals." ~ Polly Meyer
I strive to know you, your mission, and your goals, so we can truly act as partners. My goal is to build a long term relationship, by continually adding value by giving you coaching and training that can help you to stand out, engage, and influence others.
Polly is a seasoned coach with cross-industry expertise. Her Whole Person Approach incorporates four dimensions of leadership and talent: skills, experiences, traits, "and drivers. She takes a big data approach to leadership development—drawing on interviews, research, studies, data, and professional assessments, which help her to recognize what separates success from derailment for leaders in any role, function, industry, or organizational culture."
Barb M - Sr. Financial Analyst
"If you want to improve your personal presence, project confidence, and/or learn more about how you are seen by others, you need to work with Polly. Polly has been wonderful. Every session has been too short. She has good judgement about which issues to address, and which things to leave alone."
Don L. MN House of Representatives Candidate
"She brings a vast knowledge and experience base with an understanding of why the techniques work (and can explain in as geeky or non-geeky manner as you like). Polly employs a positive and motivational coaching style. I always left sessions excited and confident. I can’t recommend Polly highly enough!"

Charisma Isn't Just Born; It's Crafted Think charisma is just for the chosen few? Think again. I'm in the business of molding professionals into charismatic powerhouses. It's not just about body language, voice modulation, and savvy gestures – though I've got you covered there. It's about diving deep into the core of what makes you, you. Purpose. Values. Confidence. The kind of leadership presence that turns heads for all the right reasons.
Innovative? Absolutely. Effective? You bet. In the sea of personal development training in Minnesota, my approach is the giant squid – rare, surprising, and unforgettable. Why? Because I care. Like, really care. Not just about the results, but about making the journey ridiculously engaging and fun. And let's be clear: when you commit, transformations happen. We’re talking laser-focused, goal-smashing, 'wow-did-I-really-just-do-that?' kind of progress.
Change the World, One Training at a Time Here's the deal: when you invest in yourself with my programs, you’re also fueling social change. Cool, right? Your investment in yourself directly impacts the training scholarships I give to the real MVPs – medical pros and our nation's heroes in uniform. Because let's face it, they’re not just awesome, they’re the bedrock of awesome.
A true love is the most powerful marketing strategy there is. I truly care about my clients, and their goals and dreams. That's why I strive to deliver 10x the value in everything I do.
Executive presence, communication skills, and confidence are THE greatest asset and career-changing skills on the planet. And everyone — from entrepreneurs to politicians, C-Suite professionals to job candidates — needs to develop them.
Of course, I’m no sage from the stage. I never pretend to have all the answers and I make my fair share of mistakes, too.
But my commitment is to bring you the very best of what I’m living and learning and to keep it real and honest as I go. Because YOU, my friend, deserve it!
So don’t expect perfect polish, because no one wants a Stepford Wife, but do expect some, “oh-no-she-didn’t” laughs . . . unless you’re easily offended or ultra serious — then you won’t dig my occasional vibrant language or silly antics.
