As featured in ….
The saying in business is that, ‘You hire for skills and you fire for behavior.’
And one would argue that in order to move up in career, to be promoted, to take on additional responsibility, in many ways that’s linked more to the attitudes and behaviors that you carry rather than what you know technically about a given subject. ~ Gerald Chertavian
Hello, I’m Diane Craig, President and Founder of Corporate Class Inc.
Fortune 500 companies, business schools and government agencies have hired Corporate Class Inc. over the past 30 years to optimize performance and potential across every organizational level.
Recognized internationally for our Executive and Leadership Presence Training System, myself and the entire CCI team of experts facilitate customized training, workshops, private coaching and keynotes to organizations around the globe.
From C-Suite and senior executives to new professionals we are proud to have helped elevate the success of some of the most influential people in the world.
Early in my career:
I had the opportunity to work with several of our country’s political leaders. Initially, I was hired to help with their image and brand.
I traveled with several of them and their communication team. I attentively observed the presence they brought to the room, their impact on diverse audiences, how they worked the room, what they did differently to project credibility, instill trust, be an engaging speaker, the congruence of their words and body language, the empathy they displayed and so much more.
Some did a great job at some of the things I observed, sadly I must admit, I saw many of them struggling more than thriving.
Some of them were brilliant, committed to the well-being of our nation and yet they didn’t show up that way.
I wanted to help beyond enhancing their image and brand. I took copious notes, did a lot of research and that is how the Corporate Class Inc. Executive and Leadership Presence Training System was developed — and to this day, we continue our research, keep on top of the latest industry trends, study how leaders evolve through the rapid changes and how we can best help them become better leaders.
Are Poor Leadership Skills Holding You Back?
- You have failed to make a great first impression at a client meeting – can you recover from a negative first impression?
- You wonder about the effect you have on others – do others impact you in a way that causes you to lose confidence?
- You think your interpersonal communication skills aren’t measuring up to the level of effectiveness you need for success.
- You want to communicate with confidence and assertiveness without appearing arrogant, aggressive or superior – how is that done?
- Your virtual image impacts how you are perceived – are you hesitant to put yourself out there? How can you elevate your game, and stand out even when others can’t see you physically?
- You are undervalued for your hard work because you may not be showcasing your strengths. The air of leadership authority is one of the most important Leadership Presence fundamentals. It signals that you are the real deal, someone worthy of being heard and followed.
- You struggle with being authentic as a leader especially when office politics get in the mix.
The Biggest Myths Holding Our Trainees Back:
Myth #1: You are born a leaderReality: While some people seem to have natural leadership skills, it is really a reflection of what they have learned and the skills they developed over time. These skills are learned through Leadership Presence training, the gold standard in leadership development, where you learn the neuroscience behind how the executive brain works. You will learn how to be intentional, strategic and develop your gravitas.
Myth #2: Technical skills are what companies’ value and hire forReality: Companies may hire for technical skills but they fire for shortfalls in behavioural skills. While you may be technically strong, and will account as your price of entry, your interpersonal and social skills will tip the scale in terms of promotability and performance evaluation. Leadership Presence training helps you develop self-awareness and gives you the tools to effectively communicate with people across all levels of the organization.
Myth #3: Introverts can’t lead
Reality: There are many successful leaders that would define themselves as introverts. Through Leadership Presence training we guide you on how to honour your individuality and style while leveraging the great qualities that make you unique as a leader. To quote Susan Cain “The trick for introverts is to honor their styles instead of allowing themselves to be swept up by prevailing norms.”
It is possible to strategically improve your social skills, become a leader, and present yourself with purpose and power — no matter your current level of leadership skills.
We’ve taught this framework to thousands of people and the results have been incredible:

Ok…I’m convinced. But, why online leadership training?
Recent research, conducted by the Neuroleadership Institute, shows that virtual learning, when done right, can be dramatically more effective than in-person workshops.
A smart virtual learning program was around six times more likely to get people to take actions than the usual way learning is delivered in person. Not 6% better, or 60% better, but 600% better.
