Mastering Executive Presence
Among corporate psychologists, communication leaders and talent and executive development managers, the development discussions are about executive presence. Defining executive presence is a gray area because for many, it is the essence of leadership. It isn’t a technique, but an embedded skill that becomes a personal trait that helps you influence others. An executive with presence commands the room, projects the message and pulls you into their beliefs.
Presence isn’t something you give yourself but something you earn from those around you who come to respect your right to speak and your ability to lead. Some have called it an “earned authority.” It is a combination of behaviors and attitudes that present a sense of confidence, competence, commitment and authenticity.
TRAINING OVERVIEW: This program raises awareness of impressions and the intentional choices that people make to strengthen their brand and their ability to influence any audience.
Through videotaped exercises and coaching, participants gain a greater awareness of their current habits and explore new choices that strengthen physical impressions, personal energy and involvement, and the ability to leverage confidence and commitment to engage any listener.
This accelerated program assumes that communicators are on the stage or at the front of the room frequently. And, we know that simple reminders often evoke the best outcomes. The added component of a coaching tool allows us to capture video-guided reminders behind each exercise so that participants leave with a tool that helps them visualize and internalize coaching again and again.
