Executive Coaching

Personal Development that Leads to Business Success


Create Lasting Impact and Influence

Executive presence determines whether you gain access to opportunity. And, the more significant the opportunity, the more important executive presence becomes. ~ Polly Meyer


Building gravitas enables people to command respect, communicate with confidence and stand out from the crowd. In a competitive environment, gravitas helps people get promoted more quickly, build stronger relationships, win more business and get better results.


It's not just what you say, but how you say it. Your tone of voice, the words you choose, your ability to use silence and eye contact, your inflection, delivery and body language, your interpersonal skills...all shape other people’s perception of your effectiveness as a communicator and leader. 


Perceptions are everything. Stakeholder feedback from trusted allies builds perceptions and leadership behaviors in parallel. Seeing potential pitfalls and focusing on specific skills to accelerate performance can help struggling executives get back on track.

Your organization’s success hinges on the personal effectiveness of its leaders. Increase their self-awareness, develop their communication skills and leadership behaviors, and the entire organization reaps the benefits.

Polly Meyer Executive Coaching produces both the business results you need now, and the personal transformation that drives future success. Aligning the development needs of the individual with the objectives of the organization, I provide a confidential and supportive feedback-rich environment where your leaders gain valuable insights and transformative results.

From developing emotional intelligence, to driving change, and leading virtually, this training is designed for high impact at every level.

Executive Transition Role

The pressure is on when you step into an executive role. Whether it's because it's a whole new role or a sudden crisis hits, it's easy for executives to fall into common pitfalls.

Often, these are smart, talented leaders who were promoted for great performance. So what goes wrong?

It’s the things they don’t see coming. The dynamics around them change unexpectedly. They’re faced with more complex decisions, higher risk, and a larger span of influence.

My executive coaching examines the key pressure points that can cause executives to struggle. Then I coach them through the pitfalls that may lie ahead - before they fall into them. And more importantly, they create a plan to hit the ground running.

"I have a higher level of confidence in delivering presentations to leadership than I had before. Once you know your issues, you can fix them and lean into them with a higher level of confidence." Tom H. Vice President (A&TS) Global Business Enterprise

Develop confidence, gravitas and influence.


How do others perceive you? The fact is, no matter what you are trying to achieve, the answer to that question will dictate your level of success.

Intelligence, expertise and hard work are important, but they’re not enough. When you want to be seen as a mature and confident leader, influencing across organizational levels, and needing to build strong relationships, you need executive presence.

What is executive presence?

Executive presence is a blend of core traits and competencies that send all the right signals. You know it when you see it. Leaders with executive presence have gravitas. They’re calm under pressure, act decisively in a crisis, they communicate clearly, think on their feet and persuade others to take positive action. In short, they get results with people.

Some may be born with it, most of us aren’t. That’s where executive coaching comes in. Each program is tailored according to your organizational or individual objectives.

Leaders in new roles, high-potential managers, executives, first-time leaders up to the CEO – I’ll guide you through the process of developing a compelling personal leadership brand that makes a greater impact on those around you.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Project mature confidence. Develop the interpersonal qualities of a leader who can easily connect and influence at all levels, from the most senior to the most junior.
  • Generate buy-in. Communicate with others in a clear, engaging way that wins their confidence and strong support for your ideas and proposals.
  • Achieve key objectives. Project a clear vision and harness the power of persuasion to drive change.
  • Look the part. Project an executive image that signals the right judgment in grooming and appearance—from business to business-casual.
  • Manage pressure. Maintain poise and composure under fire and in times of heightened stress – remain flexible and adaptable in response to uncertainty.
  • Build strategic allies. Develop professional relationships and gain rich feedback to achieve objectives.
  • Develop key leadership skills. Gain insights and strategies in delegating, executing effectively, building trust, decisiveness, conflict, building cross-functional teams. 



See for yourself how this training can transform high-potential people into trusted leaders.
