A Communication coach is someone who helps an individual or group of people in improving their communication skills. A communication coach uses one-on-one sessions to help their client work on the fundamentals of effective communication. Communication coaching is similar to life coaching but focuses more on non-work-related communication. Communication coaching is an effective, holistic and multi-leveled framework for improving communication and leadership competence.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

I support people to open their eyes to greater possibilities so that they can break through obstacles and find clarity and purpose. But coaching is not just about self-awareness, It is about how that awareness can create an impact in both work and personal spaces. Coaching is not a conversation; it is a two-way partnership where we work in a safe space to peel back layers to get to a fundamental truth.  Self-knowledge is the key to good leadership and in my coaching, I help you to understand your values, examine your priorities, vision your future and create an impact on the people in your life. My coaching uses the principles of positive intelligence, cutting edge neuroscience, co-active practice and reflective inquiry.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

My training with CTI taught me that presence is more important than perfection. I employ all the principles of the science of coaching, the way to fulfillment, the use of balance and process, but my belief that every client has all the tools they need right there, inside them, that everyone is already whole, creative, and resourceful is the single guiding light in all my coaching sessions. Every one of my clients is now doing something different, big, or small, than before they began coaching. Transformation happens. My clients are better communicators and have a deeper sense of their who and why and this has impacted everyone in their lives.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

My Signature 3A(Authority, Authenticity, and Audience) Program supports Leaders(team size of more than100) to overcome their communication barriers, handle inner fears and change their limiting beliefs by working closely on their unhealthy communication patterns, reframing their language, and creating a clear communication roadmap.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The single most important thing that has contributed to my success as a coach is my inner to outer approach to my client’s problems.

My holistic and spiritual approach not only works on their unhealthy communication patterns from the inside out but also helps them create power habits that aid them in continuous improvement and growth

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

My coaching starts with listening, the core of communication. Together we listen to the tensions and paradoxes stirring within you and listen for what is wanting to emerge from you. We arrive at your intention in giving this time to yourself. And together we collaborate to create a safe space in your life to pause and listen to yourself. This doesn’t mean it is all mindful stillness and breathing deeply, no, we will talk, share stories, write, reflect, and sometimes move. Embodiment – bringing attention to your body is the often-neglected element to alignment of mind, body, heart, and spirit. This alignment is especially important when it comes to communication capabilities.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

There is no single most important thing but there are a multitude of experiences and influences that combine to support my coaching. Some of these are my 35-year practice and performance of ensemble-based improvisation and particularly the style of improvisation – Playback Theatre. This practice heightens understanding of empathetic communication, because essentially theatre is all about communication.  I learnt the language of stories here and to be responsiveness to the present moment to build upon what others offer to this dynamic moment to create coherent narratives, together. My 10 years’ experience in translating and applying theatre skills to team cohesiveness and Leadership/Personal Presence which includes the use of Storytelling with leaders all over the world. Training in and training others to have Compassionate and Difficult conversations alongside many years practice in meditation, martial arts and yoga.

Jon Torrens

I teach confident communication. I work with many different companies (Microsoft, Foster+ Partners, Redgate, Raspberry Pi, Creative Assembly) and I think they enjoy my training so much because: I’m an introvert* I make it fun. That second one is one I’m very proud of.

The Top Communication Coaches communication coach

Training/learning/development can be a chore; I believe it shouldn’t ever be that way. My background: I was a low-scorer academically. I studied art and design, then graphic design, got a job as a video game level designer, fell in love with performing stand-up comedy, became a full-time stand-up, didn’t become a star so gave it up, went back to games and started a family.

My success is grounded in my proven ability to both resolve conflict and teach others how to do it themselves. Just like a golf coach doesn’t ask how you’d like to swing the club to achieve your goals, I am comfortable being direct and pointing out both the things you are doing well, but also alert you to your missteps. When indicated, I will ask you to take the Thomas Kilman Conflict Styles Instrument, the Conflict Dynamics profile, the DISC instrument and or the Myers Briggs instrument to support you gain greater insight into your current patterns.
