Essential Voice

Phrase Strategy works with leaders to uncover and express their authentic leadership voice. Essential Voice is for leaders who want to dig deep, communicate their truth, and connect with others through their writing.

Discover your voice

More than ever, leaders need to communicate authentically. Yet, they often believe they don’t have the talent to write well, or that others can do it better. Communication is often outsourced and “ghost-written” – signs that many leaders are disconnected from their own voices.

Improve your process

You may recognize some of these experiences:

  • You know what you want to say but can’t find the words to say it
  • Your writing feels dry, clinical, or technical – not at all like the real you
  • You have no trouble writing, but other people don’t receive it in the way that you intend
  • Your notes and partial drafts never seem to go anywhere
  • You’re never satisfied with what ghostwriters and marketers produce
  • It just takes too darn long to write well

Phrase Strategy connects leaders to their voices and supports them to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and impact of their writing.

Especially for leaders

We work exclusively with thought leaders, business leaders, and entrepreneurs. By the end of your Essential Voice program, you will be able to:

  • Identify, understand, and use your authentic voice in writing
  • Better connect with and engage audiences
  • Become a more efficient and effective writer
  • Complete writing projects that are important to you
  • Understand and tackle any technical writing challenges you may have

Likely, you’ll experience greater confidence in other areas, too – such as:

  • Better expression of values, perceptions, and expectations
  • Greater confidence as a speaker
  • Improvements in anticipating and managing how others receive your words

You’ll have access to our continued support through free monthly emails, and pay-as-you-go group workshops, and one-on-one coaching.

Essential Voice is offered in two formats:

Up-level your leadership game

The practice of writing hones critical skills that are hallmarks of strong leadership: self-awareness, authenticity, mindfulness, and communication. Moving ideas into words transforms thought into action and improves both creative and critical thinking. Powerful writing builds leadership brands and reaches more people, more meaningfully.

Phrase Strategy is expert in:

  • Multiple written genres, including business, marketing, technical, and creative forms
  • Coaching speeches and presentations
  • Mentoring, teaching, coaching, developing training plans and learning tools
  • Entrepreneurial thinking
  • Working with executives and organizations to tell their stories
You have a voice, as surely as you have a face, and it is already full of character.”
