Work with Leslie

Hello, I'm Dr. Leslie Gordon

 From a young age, I learned that I could use my speech express myself in new and exciting ways. I can’t wait to help you use the skills you already have so that you LOVE to share your gifts with the world.

Everyone has a message to share. Some of us just need a little more help bringing that out in a way that feels confident and still authentic. Once you discover that side of yourself, you are free to be unapologetically you.

My own life experiences and my education shape my coaching practice.  As a linguist, I know the cognitive processes that drive our speaking and the way we feel about our communication. As a speaker of multiple languages, I know what it means to learn new sound systems and to strive to feel at home in new languages and cultures. I can help you make your own impact on the world around you. Whether you’re preparing to speak in new contexts or you want to improve some aspect of your current sound or delivery, we can work on it together.

Working with Leslie I have learned not only how to speak better, but how to listen better.  I pay much more attention to the speech around me. I have gained a lot of confidence for telling the stories of our foundation.
