Navigating the waters of corporate life can be very difficult for any leader.  

  • Constantly OVERWHELMED by too many responsibilities.
  • Frustrated you can’t quite seem to get ahead even though you believe you have good ideas to help improve working conditions.
  • Aggravated that your job seems to be mostly about fixing problems and putting out fires.
  • You want less stress, to get more done in less time and with less effort.  
  • Stressed out over workplace conflict—from conflicting and competing personalities of peers, direct reports, bosses, etc.
  • Poor communication which leads to you not trusting your staff to get the job done.

When you hire a Leadership Performance Coach, you will discover and learn to incorporate into your daily life tools which will:

  • Improve your leadership abilities.
  • Discover new behaviors and habits which will give you more energy.
  • Help you consistently choose how to respond to your environment and get the results you desire.
  • Develop creative solutions to problems.
  • Reignite your passion for your career and if you desire take it to the next level.
  • Create long-term sustainable changes for you, your staff and the company’s culture.

Meet Stacie Speaker

After graduating with a degree in Communications from Cal State University Fullerton, Stacie was fortunate enough to have both a film and television career in Hollywood, working on television shows such as “Friends” and “Murphy Brown” and films such as “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” and “Wild Things”.  Years later she entered the corporate side of entertainment working for large entertainment licensing, consumer products and manufacturing companies, such as The Walt Disney Company, DreamWorks and Rovio Entertainment.

She was lucky enough to spend 20+ years working in tinsel town and creating kids’ toys, but something was pushing her to try something new.  So, the time came for her to pack her bags and take all the knowledge, the lessons learned, the wins, the losses, the bumps and bruises, the easiness of connecting with others and a strong desire to bring balance and kindness into the work place and try her hand at another career path.

Stacie is a graduate of the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC). She earned her certifications as a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner (ELI-MP), and a COR.E Dynamics specialist in both Leadership and Well-being.

Today she is a Leadership Performance Coach who helps Executives and their teams develop skills, habits and behaviors to reduce frustration and stress and increase their energy.  This enables them build highly engaged teams who realize their maximum potential, enrich their communication skills and cultivate highly balanced work environments.

When she isn’t coaching, you can find hosting her own podcast, Reignite Your Light™, binge watching Netflix and spending time with her amazing husband in sunny Southern California.

Testimonials

The benefits I gained from this class was learning who I am as a person first, and then to apply my unique personality into my “presentation style.” Knowing my unique self has helped me to understand how I can deliver my message with more confidence. I learned that the more I practiced presenting, the more I found out which areas I needed to work on (eye contact, not to rush through my presentation, etc). I learned that it is OK to be an introvert and that almost everyone gets nervous presenting.
Presenting is not one of my strongest points as a professional designer, and this class has helped me learn “how to” be a better presenter by providing us with invaluable tips and tools with take away worksheets & class discussions. I would definitely recommend this class to my peers who are afraid of public speaking because Stacie really creates a “safe” environment for everyone in the class. I found this very important because this was the only way I would have come out of my shell!

“Stacie Speaker has a very unique and effective coaching style.  She is smart, motivated and has the right personality to drive your business. She quickly understood my challenges and together we created a solid action plan to move my company forward. Her realistic and easy-to-talk-to approach made her very relatable to the team and the return on investment was invaluable.”
T. Sabba, President of Sabbatoge Strategic L.L.C.
I was facing a difficult contract negotiation and I needed someone who was able to see past the weeds and really help me focus on what I wanted from the new client who was courting me.  During our working sessions I was able to discover what I was worth and the skills I was bringing to this client and I have realized after all these years, I have been underselling my expansive skill set.  I was able to have a powerful, clear and calm conversation with my potential new client and afterwards, not only did he agree to my deal terms, he increased the original length of the contract by 3 months.  I know in my heart of hearts if I hadn’t worked with Stacie, not only would I still be working for peanuts, but I would be conducting business the same way, playing small.  Now I have new tools and a skill set that allows me to own my self-worth.

Overall I am so happy with this class. It was very helpful and Stacie was amazing. The class was filled with people from many different backgrounds with one goal, to improve our individual communication skills. It was great to discover my weakness and strengths and what I wanted to learn from this class was how to incorporate my particular style so I could communicate effectively. Stacie was instrumental in helping us find our individual speaking style and we own our unique skills. The 10 week workshop was the right amount of time to learn and digest in bite-size chunks how to speak clearly, and be more productive on a day to day basis.  I now have stronger relationships with my boss, my co-workers and our clients.
