Leaders

The Power of Counterintuitive

Being nice doesn’t get our teams nor culture where it needs to be. Much of what we’ve been taught as polite and nice gets in the way of connecting and building trust.

Sales

Own Your Sales: Get Real

You can know all the processes and still not get the business. Sales is about authenticity, listening and connection.

Claim Your Power - Give Voice to Your Executive Presence

Female leaders often have to navigate journeys that are met with seemingly insurmountable challenges. Communication style is judged as either too harsh or too soft.

Protection from Burnout - It’s a Part of You

Providing good care is exhausting. Communication, which is an essential part of the care, is also exhausting.

Take it from those who have worked with Hilary:

“Hunter Douglas hired Hilary Blair to provide a Keynote at the Hunter Douglas National Sales Meeting and she exceeded our expectations! Our sales team learned ways of working with their customers to deliver an effective sales message while keeping their true voice. In our business, personal relationships are everything – and our sales team felt more confident and better equipped to train our customers and increase sales following the session.”

Hunter Douglas

“You have no idea the impact you’ve had on folks as they STILL are talking about your session! You’ve got a gift and we are grateful that you were able to share your knowledge with us.”

To see Hilary in action is inspiring. Her caring, loving spirit really resonates with so many women who have worked so hard, who feel so fragile, and who want so much to learn and to grow.

“I feel like I could write an entire book regarding my takeaways and what I learned from Hilary’s presentation and small group session.”

Leading Edge Strategies

The ARTiculate Team was amazing. They came highly recommended from two independent top sources and not only provided the vocal training I desired, but helped me to greatly improve my stage presence and build my speaker platform. This went FAR beyond my expectations and I will be back for more!

One, one hundred… five hundred. We all communicate to others, to groups of all sizes. This training helps groups and individuals at all levels of experience to improve the delivery of their message.

Prior to coaching with ARTiculate, I was receiving casual feedback on my presenting skills from my peers. While the intentions were good, the feedback was only causing more road blocks and stripping my confidence. Working with ARTiculate has shown me that I can be the great speaker and leader that I want to be. They make it fun, yet every session is productive. I would recommend anyone to ARTiculate.

Exceptional team – my presentation skills have dramatically improved as a result of Hilary and Robin’s coaching. They are highly recommended.

The ARTiculate Team found positive, encouraging ways to work with individuals in our firm who have widely varying experience and skills. Every one of us was able to improve.

I highly recommend them if you want to gain your voice and be more effective in any interaction whether it is a one-on-one or a large audience presentation. I believe she could help even the most polished professional be more effective. They really know their stuff! In my sessions with them, I was able to identify a few key things about my voice that were holding me back and making me less powerful and ‘heard.’ They are great to work with and I treasured my time with them. Thank you, ARTiculate!

Our workshop with Articulate was excellent and offered all that we asked for and more. I would definitely recommend their company for media/speaking training. The trainers were engaging, fun and informative.
