Executive Presence

Written by Michelle Braden, CEO Posted in White Papers

What it is — What it is not — and How to Develop “It”

Executive Presence

 

Possibly, the most challenging is statement a leader hears is from their boss, stakeholder or board member is “You need to work on your executive presence”.  Unfortunately, this statement is elusive - leaders are left guessing what exactly needs improvement and/or creating their own conclusions.   


Perhaps their boss isn’t sure how to articulate what they need to do in order to improve.  Defining  just what “IT” is can be like trying to nail Jell-O to the wall.  Often people will say, “you just know when someone has it….” or “that person really has presence – they must be born with it….”.  


 

How Will You Be Known?

Building Your Leadership Legacy

How Will You Be Known?

 

Most leaders don’t think about their leadership legacy. They think a legacy is something for older people or something you leave when you die. A Legacy, however, is something more. A true Legacy is a living thing that is a gift to both the giver and recipient and as it is passed on, it adds to the leader’s reputation. It is possible a legacy is not “formally” recognized until after a person retires; however, just as a person begins building their financial legacy from the day the begin their career, so a leader begins building thier leadership legacy the day you begin leading. This means leaders who desire a meaningful legacy need to be proactive.

Leading for Results

  "Man cannot live on bread alone, he must have peanut butter (James A. Garfield)!" Similarly leadership does not stand alone, it must get results, and that means achieving well formulated goals. By definition, a destination is inherent and you MUST know where your are going or, as oft quoted Yogi says, "If you don't know where you're going, any path will get you there."

Why Leaders Must Coach

Written by Michelle Braden, CEO Posted in White Papers

Why Leaders Must Coach

We live in a fast-paced, ever changing, and complex world. As leaders we are constantly looking for more effective, efficient, and productive ways to push both ourselves and those that work with us. According to research recently published by Gallup, employee disengagement costs American organization up to $550 billion in lost productivity per year. That’s $2000 per employee per year. It is clear to see from these numbers that the cost of disengagement and boredom among your employees is staggering.

Sharing Your Passion to Improve the Endgame

 

Developing people skills is a journey that begins very early in life.  At one time you learned basic rules about your personal behavior and how to get along with others.  Perhaps it was from Robert Fulghum’s book “Everything I need to know I learned in kindergarten,” or the Golden Rule, or just to be helpful.  These are great rules to live by every day.  You’ve had a good start. MSBCoach’s Leadership Maturity Model’s “Ground Level Essentials” will provide an excellent refresher and set a firm foundation for advancing your people skills.
