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, or on a virtual call, with 1, 10, or 1000 people.

We coach people to make subtle changes in their non-verbals to strengthen 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 that of the past. It’s about informal, relaxed confidence and collaboration, not formal authority, command and control.

Watch the video to experience how our Predator, Prey, Partner™ model of leadership plays out. This example is in a virtual meeting. The principles in person are essentially the same.
