WHY WE ARE
DIFFERENT

As coaches, our job is to evoke - not impose

We put our focus where it belongs – on the client. We dialogue. We ask questions. We listen, observe and develop communications skills, clarity and confidence during the coaching process.

Our team is comprised of communications and leadership experts who have worked with clients in North America, Europe, and Asia. We bring a strategic understanding of your business and deep knowledge of leaders’ roles in achieving business objectives.

OUR
APPROACH

Be at your best when you’re leading and communicating with others

At Loma Communications, we develop powerful communicators, leaders and organizations through innovative coaching and training programs.

You at Your Best

What is it that makes you a strong, resilient and trusted leader? Behind these intangible qualities are core competencies that help you have a positive impact. Loma can bring out the best in you with personalized coaching, leadership branding and executive thought leadership programs.

You Out in the World

Leaders are called upon to influence others far outside the realm of their own organizations. Whether you are an advocate, evangelist or change agent, inspiring others and moving them into action are essential leadership competencies.

Your Story

Who gets our attention? People who are authentic, transparent and real. What you say and do must be consistent with your character and spirit. Your story is one story - the story you tell and the story you embody through your actions.

Your Relationship with Others

To lead, we must understand the impact we have on others and how to perceive our strengths and weaknesses. Influencing others and handling conflict are challenges you face every day. Gain a deeper sense of how to use that wisdom to lead.
