STORY COACHING FOR SPEAKERS, CONSULTANTS,
EXPERTS & AUTHORS
Working one-on-one with Michael – and mastering the art of eliciting emotion through his 6 Step Success Story™ approach – will empower you to secure more speaking opportunities, attract more clients, take those relationships to a deeper and more meaningful level, and multiply your revenue.
MICHAEL’S COACHING PACKAGES
Michael offers three approaches to working with you, your company, or your team on your stories, presentations and projects. Each method has its own set of coaching packages offering a range of objectives, time commitments and costs.
But regardless of which package you choose, Michael’s coaching is individual. Together you and he will determine how to best apply his expertise and guidance to your own individual goals, projects and budget.
All of Michael’s packages include:
- Confidential, one-on-one coaching with Michael using GoToMeeting
- Michael’s guidance on all elements of the 6 Step Success Story™ process: identifying the hero; creating empathy; eliciting emotion through desire and conflict; creating vivid settings, character and dialogue; crafting your stories to move readers and audiences to take action.
- Recordings of all your coaching sessions to review and incorporate into your stories
- Email responses from Michael to any questions you have throughout your coaching process
- Free paperback or digital copies of Michael’s best-selling book Storytelling Made Easy: Persuade and Transform Your Audiences, Buyers and Clients – Quickly, Simply and Profitably for you and the members of your team.
HOURLY COACHING PACKAGES
Michael’s basic rate for consultation is $400 per hour. But by purchasing a specific number of hours, you not only receive a discounted hourly rate; you will continue to receive that lower rate for as long as you continue working with Michael on any project.
The Platinum Level 10-Hour Package $2850
This is the ideal package if you want to complete and perfect a larger project involving a number of stories: a speech or live presentation; a non-fiction book; a webinar; an instructional video; a marketing campaign; or a longer autobiographical/signature story (similar to the “Beat the Bridge” story he created for Michael Maher).
(Guaranteed hourly rate after completion of the 10 hours: $300/hr.)
The Gold Level 5-Hour Package $1750
Select this package if you want to create a shorter project involving just one or two powerful success stories: a short speech or TED Talk; a blog or series of emails; a sales pitch; or a single instructional or marketing video.
(Guaranteed hourly rate after completion of the 5 hours: $350/hr.)
The Silver Level Kickstart Package $750
If you have a single success story you wish to write and perfect, if you’re on a more limited budget, or if you want a sense of what working with Michael is like before committing to a larger package, this is the ideal choice.
During an initial coaching session Michael will provide you with an in depth evaluation of your submitted story (written or on video), along with recommendations for strengthening its content, style, emotional impact and persuasive power. You will then revise your story and discuss the new version with Michael during a follow up session, making certain the result is an emotionally compelling and persuasive success story.
MASTER COACHING PROGRAMS
Would you like to have an ongoing relationship with Michael, including weekly or bi-weekly coaching sessions and unlimited email access to him as he guides you through whatever stories, presentations or consulting opportunities you encounter? Then apply for one of his Master Coaching packages.
As one of his few, select Master Coaching clients, Michael will review any work you provide for discussion during your regular coaching sessions (written stories, videos, speeches, etc), and provide you with insights and expertise that will maximize their content, style and persuasive power.
The Platinum Level Master Coaching Package 6 MONTHS FOR $10,000
Designed for deeply committed speakers, consultants and experts who want to create a major, story-driven project, presentation or marketing campaign AND who want to achieve a whole new level of mastery in creating stories for every aspect of their business.
During your weekly, 90-minute coaching sessions with Michael, you will work together to develop whatever stories and projects you submit and choose to discuss.
The Gold Level Master Coaching Program $2,000 per month
If you want all the benefits of Platinum Level Master Coaching, but prefer monthly payments rather than a six-month commitment, this is your best choice. Meetings are still once per week for 90 minutes, and you may discontinue the program at any time with no penalty.
The Silver Level Master Coaching Program $1,000 per month
If you love the idea of working with Michael on an ongoing basis, but the weekly sessions described above are too big a commitment, the same program is available for $1000 per month, but with TWO 60-minute coaching sessions per month instead of one 90-minute session per week. All other elements remain the same as with the weekly package. Just specify your preference on your application.
Because of the time commitment involved, Michael limits the number of Master Coaching clients he accepts at any one time. So please apply only if you truly want this kind of intense, transformative experience. Just specify which package you prefer on your application.
