PRODUCING YOUR CAREER, a division of Bedlam Productions Inc., creates uncommon, unconventional, and unquestionably effective leadership programs based on our methodology called Crossing the Footlights™. Through this approach, grounded in techniques from theatre and television, we teach executives to affect what their client, customer, or audience will hear, react to and remember. Our goal is to help organizations produce stronger leaders, advance high-potential talent, and nurture newer professionals.
CREDENTIALS: Producing Your Career is proud to have worked in alliance with many large US and Canadian corporations including Bank of America, Bank of Montreal, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska, Deutsche Bank, the Estée Lauder Companies, Hertz, Institute for Career Advancement Needs, Lincoln Financial, New York Life, News Corporation, State Farm Insurance, Time, Inc., and UBS plus numerous authors and senior executives.
PYC offers five core programs that concentrate on executive presence, personal brand, and leadership style. Each follows our Crossing the Footlights™ theatre and television methodology, and is customized for every audience:
Program One: Deliver A Command Performance (Group Program)
Command Performance addresses a key business imperative: The ability to speak and present with confidence, clarity and leadership. Many men and women struggle at the podium, or in front of clients, but they don’t have to. If they’re “produced,” they can jump onto the corporate stage with the talents of a well-rehearsed leading player. The Crossing the Footlights™ methodology doesn’t work like a presentation starter-kit. Instead, it works to prep a professional for a one-man or woman show. We construct the program based on Core, Content, Control, Connection and Craft We introduce actors and directors to hone individual performance. We turn around the most hesitant or skeptical so that taking the stage becomes easy.

Program Two: Produce Your Personal Brand (Group Program)
Your personal brand tells others about your individual image and the results you bring to match it. Without a well-defined and articulated brand it’s hard to set an effective career path and define leadership potential. For the organization, for the team, and for the individual, branding is a core element for competition and success. With our personal branding program and curriculum, professionals focus on personal brand identification, personal packaging and marketing, uncovering hidden talents and developing signature style.

Program Three: Produce Your Client Meeting (Group Program)
An effective client meeting is a produced event. Properly staged, it requires practiced entrances and exits, a deliberate setting, and a rehearsed intention so that you control what your audience is hearing, reacting to and remembering. If you wing it, you can expect to be upstaged. Our Crossing the Footlights™ methodology teaches you how to lead your meeting with the special techniques stage actors have mastered in order to engage and hold an audience. We prepare you to be effective using the 10 “can’t-fail” stage cues, the dry run and the meeting simulation.

Program Four: Executive Studio (Semi-Private Program, 2 – 5 participants)
Not all talented professionals have mastered the kind of stage presence they need to successfully and gracefully address an audience, make a presentation, speak to clients or appear in a videoconference.
In the Executive Studio, our leadership presence program for small groups, we concentrate on exceptional delivery and message, special approaches for “holding an audience” (in person or by phone) and clarity of intention and communication. Like an actor’s studio, this program is designed to teach each member of the group according to his/her personal style, using each person’s individual material, slides or presentation text. We never assume one size fits all. We choose to “produce” each program participant as if we’re preparing him/her for center stage, and the intimate setting encourages group support and feedback. Since we all know that no great actor would ever take the stage without being well-directed and rehearsed, we also know that no professional can truly perform at her/his best without customized instruction and significant preparation>.

Program Five: Hire an Executive Producer (Private Coaching)
CEOs, celebrity presenters and politicians have personal and individual leadership and presentation coaches, and executives should too. We provide an opportunity for you to hire your own “producer” in order to customize your delivery, your CV, your brand, your executive presence, and most importantly, your leadership style. As a special way of teaching, we pair you with a theatre professional or director so you benefit from the coaching of those who have had professional success. You succeed because we teach from a Crossing the Footlights™ vantage point, and do not rely on conventional methodology.
Hire an Executive Producer may serve as personalized follow-up to any of the Producing Your Career programs.
