“Sean’s insights from psychotherapy, coupled with techniques from the actor’s toolbox, enable clients to develop an authentic presence” David Cooper, Corporate Psychologist
As an executive coach Sean represents a unique combination of disciplines. With the combined skills of the professional actor and the practising psychotherapist, his experience is excitingly brought to bear in the delivery of his ‘Gravitas’ course for The Learning Stage.
Gravitas is that powerful but elusive quality: a combination of sincerity, dignity, composure, grace, stillness and strength of character.
Cultivating leaders’ awareness on how they make their ‘entrances and exits’ on the business stage, Sean enables them to secure a deep level of personal ‘grounding’. He provides them with an access to their individual authentic ‘selves’, the results permeating their lives and radiating in their professional identities.
His specialist teaching uses the tools of the psychotherapist to reveal the essential quality of the magnetic, or ‘star’, personality. Sensing the unique latent abilities and talents of each individual, he helps clients discover this quality in them selves. He believes we all have it.
Drawing on his insight, clients develop gravitas in their own terms. Through it they find greater presence, impact, dynamism, authority, flexibility, integrity and ability to inspire others.
