Authentic Leadership Training
Authentic Leadership Training
Our world is changing faster than ever. At Open Door Acting, our training connects leaders to the part of themselves that is eternal; the part that touches and moves us all.
Communication is power and it thrives on authenticity in the moment. And in the experiences that move us beyond words alone. At Open Door we create leaders that touch, move and inspire their audiences; no matter what the size, it’s always a one on one experience. Technical expertise and organizational acumen no longer suffice to create a great leader. Great leaders today must be master communicators able to connect with groups large and small through heartfelt authenticity. Whether on camera, the stage, or in a meeting room with a handful of clients, leaders trained by Open Door Acting will be able to evoke their innate charisma.
The secret is, we don’t teach leaders how to pretend. We take them on a journey to discover and own the innate strength, power and courage already present in their own hearts. We guide them to expand this power and direct it to influence and empower their organizations with Presence and with ease.
Open Door Acting develops stage presence and influencing power through a variety of acting methods including Meisner, Grotowski, Adler, and Strassberg. As well as using various healing arts practices including meditation, Qi Gong, embodied affirmation, therapeutic massage and relaxation techniques to teach leaders how to embody their own personal power, vision and intentions.
We believe that great leadership reaches far beyond knowledge and “know-how”; it’s embodying the beliefs and principles you promote. When you connect to your truth, you need few words to communicate with lasting power and resonance. People “just feel it, you exude confidence, strength and authenticity. And you don’t have to try, it happens naturally. Don’t be surprised if events align in your favor, as if by magic, when you practice authentic, heartfelt communication.
