The Hidden Factor: Executive Presence

The Hidden Factor: Executive Presence By Sally Williamson

The shelves are full of books on leadership: how to attract it, how to develop it and how to manage it. But, within the qualities of effective leadership, lies the more elusive concept of executive presence. Some define it as an aura; others say it’s a swagger, the ability to command a room. Still others say it’s authenticity and personal confidence. Most often, it’s the deciding factor in top-level promotions.

Executive presence has always existed, but in recent years, it has resurfaced as a hot topic among C-Suite executives, succession planners and development officers. We believe that’s because the next generation of leaders doesn’t have it and most believe it can’t be developed.

The Hidden Factor: Executive Presence validates what executive presence is, how it impacts someone’s ability to lead and how to help someone develop it.

Leading Executive Conversations

Leading Executive Conversations By Sally Williamson

Leading conversations with senior executives is a moment of visibility for many managers. And yet, these conversations can be as much of a liability as an opportunity. It’s the difference in the manager’s perspective and the executive’s expectations.

This book is focused on closing that gap with insights from over 300 managers and executives. We hope it will add value to both perspectives and help your conversations get to memorable outcomes.
