Acting Skills for Leaders & Emerging Leaders

Are you a leader who needs to gain the trust of teams, clients or other leaders?
Would you like to exude gravitas in professional communications?
Have you thought acting training might help develop leadership presence?

Sandra Zimmer has reinvented her acting program to train business professionals to use acting skills to develop leadership presence and gravitas. For three decades, Sandra taught actors to develop an authentic style of acting for stage, screen and commercials. Now professionals can learn the same skills that actors know and use to command audience attention, create trust and garner respect.

“I have had several friends tell me there has been a big change in my personality, and, even the way I carry myself - I believe they used the word - transformation. I do “feel” different these days. It would probably be more self-confidence that I have with myself and the way I deal/work with daily issues. The self-discovery that unfolds in each class is wondrous. I love the way you lead the students through each phase of techniques. They are not over-powering/whelming. It's a freedom - not even freedom, maybe a clear understanding of the process. Your classes have opened the door to a part of my soul and I don't think that door can be closed again.”
