Webinar Recording: The Personal Science of Executive Presence and Influence: The Bates ExPI™

Executive presence (EP) has long been acknowledged as a critical factor in leadership. However, its definition is often mysterious and subject to diverse perspectives. The default assumption is to equate presence with appearance and presentation skills. While these factors are important, they make up only a small piece of the "executive presence puzzle."

We set out to take a closer look at EP and over the past year, conducted extensive research in leadership, communications, psychology, and social action theories and literature. The result is the Bates Executive Presence Index (ExPI™), the first-ever research-based, scientifically validated model and assessment of executive presence. The ExPI clarifies executive presence as a three-dimensional model of character, substance, and style. The model is broken down into 15 distinct facets that are proven to make up a leader's overall presence and level of influence.
