"The skills Cali learned from Polly will benefit her far beyond the pageant world, with college interviews, job interviews, any public speaking, anytime she walks into a room of people! I also learned a ton just by being in the room and listening! We are so thankful for Polly, I would highly recommend her!!"
Susan Walter Weddle
"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."
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!"

My goal is to take you from ordinary to extraordinary by giving you tools that you can immediately use to stand out from the rest!
It goes without saying, powerful first impressions are critical in business.
Whether you're meeting others for the first time at a networking event, applying for a new job or needing to persuade decision-makers, executive presence helps you to achieve your goals.
It can also give you a competitive edge when attracting and retaining the best talent.

One-one-one and group training sessions are tailored to your needs. I'll get you ready to engage your team or audience using highly practical and powerful techniques. You'll come across with authenticity, warmth, and confidence.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 research geek, and part spiritual ass-kicker.
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.
I've spent years studying the science of how body language tells the story of what is going on inside someone's brain, how demonstrating charisma gives a competitive advantage, and how using story persuades decision makers to move.
I deserve no credit for the science. I just took the best bits out of some rather arcane data to help my own growth.
I studied with world class ballroom dancers, acting coaches, news anchors, and strategic communications trainers. And I've been coached by the best directors in the business on commercial and video production sets.
I teach professionals how to harness their charisma, use their body language, their voice, vocal tone, and gestures so they’re noticed for all the right reasons.
More importantly, I help men and women build their confidence, and cultivate and their leadership mindset and presence - because lets get real, no one wants to flop or feel awkward when they're in front of decision-makers. I’m known to deliver the most innovative and highest quality charisma and personal development training in Minnesota.
That’s because my team and I care deeply about you and are committed to not only getting you results, but make learning irresistibly fun!
Charisma, Confidence, and Executive Presence 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 learn it.
My hard science approach is based on research done at Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Berkeley and Princeton. Training is a mix of creative communications, sound science and practical tools, with a smidge of spirituality tossed in for good measure.
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!
