PROGRAM MODULES Introducing Executive Presence to the Young

Jean O’Brien believes the sooner young people develop Executive Presence verbal and non-verbal skills the more confident they will feel and interact in a classroom setting or social events.

Jean receives strong, positive feedback from parents who have seen significant changes in their children’s behavior after this program. It appears beneficial to have skills reinforced by someone other than a parent, within a positive setting amongst peers.

This program is designed and intended for youth ages 8 to 18. It is presented according to age and the number of participants is limited in order to ensure ongoing individual interaction.
