THE POWER OF PRESENCE

Your presence either sets you up for success . . . or undermines you.

Presence says far more than words. That goes whether you’re meeting in person, on a virtual call, or with 1, 10, or 1000 people.

We coach leaders to make subtle non-verbal changes to level up their Executive Presence. It’s like professional athletes, where a small adjustment — a new grip or foot pattern — enormously ups their game.

Bottom Line: Strengthen Executive Presence to realize potential.

WHAT IS EXECUTIVE PRESENCE?

Executive Presence is a way of showing up that earns respect and cooperation from senior leaders, peers, and direct reports.

Today’s version differs from the past. Then, it was either “command & control” or “cajole to control”. 

We call the new executive presence “Partner”. It’s about informal, relaxed confidence that invites collaboration.
