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….”.

Executive Presence: Cracking the Code

Executive Presence, or EP, has become a common term in leadership development; however it is not easily defined and can be a challenge to identify what a leader needs to do in order to establish it.  


Is EP the way you dress, talk (voice tone... inflection), or enter a room? Or perhaps it’s the way you choose a seat at the table, handle conflict, or build trust?  Maybe, it's how you communicate or use your body language?  Indeed, EP can be a confusing and nuanced skill set.  In this webinar we will explore:

  • A workable definition of EP
  • How to identify your current EP 
  • Creating a plan to grow and develop your EP 
  • How to use this knowledge in order to be more successful as a leader 

Leaders of all levels benefit from a strong Executive Presence; watch to evaluate your own EP and learn ways to sharpen your skills.

• How can you create dynamic discussions to encourage vision and define future success? 
• How do you ensure that your strategy is actually turned into action plans? 

Owning Your Leadership Presence

Written by Barbara Higgins Posted in Blog

Owning is such a positive word.  It conveys the simple message of a child…it’s mine.  Look a little deeper into the meaning and we think about the work to procure something of value and taking responsibility to care for that something.
