Executive Presence for Women Leaders

Program Overview

As you move forward in your career, you may find that conversations about your next role can include discussion of “executive presence.” It is especially important for women to understand what that means, and to know what to do about it. More important, as a woman leader you want to give yourself every opportunity to stand out and be seen as a highly effective senior leader.

While executive presence has always been a mysterious “X Factor” in leadership, we take the mystery out of it in this course. While terms like gravitas and executive image are often considered synonyms of executive presence, we know from research that these are just one part of the "executive presence puzzle.” What you’ll learn in this course is that there are 15 qualities that enable you to not only stand out, but influence others and sustain goal-directed action in an organization. This course is not a one-size fits-all solution for women leaders – you discover your own brand of executive presence and how to enhance the qualities that you need to engage, align, inspire and move people to act.

What Will You Learn in Executive Presence Mastery for Women Leaders?

The Executive Presence Mastery for Women Leaders program provides you with a clear path to understanding your executive presence and how it is felt by others. Based on the Bates ExPI™ Assessment, you discover your strengths and gaps within 15 areas of leadership proven to be critical to influencing others and driving results. Through the program, you learn to amplify your strengths in three dimensions:  Character, Substance, and Style. You walk away from the program with practical skills and tools for leading with influence, winning buy-in, mobilizing above-and-beyond effort, sustaining purposeful action, and driving business results. 

Prior to the program, you’ll have the opportunity to complete the Bates ExPI™, a multi-rater 360 assessment that gives you valuable feedback on 15 facets of your presence and influence. You’ll have a personal orientation and confidential feedback and interpretation session with a Bates coach, who provides guidance in interpreting your Bates ExPI Feedback Report. Along with the coach, you’ll identify concrete steps to apply what you’ve learned to two important, business relevant themes that are drivers in your current role.

Through the program, you will discover:

  • An appreciation of how people view your strengths
  • Insights as to how to leverage those to enhance your career and leadership effectiveness
  • Clarity about how to close gaps so you have an even more powerful impact
  • Readiness to go out and apply what you’ve learned to build your leadership brand
  • A plan to build a team around you to help you enhance your executive presence
  • Ways to apply what you’ve learned to influence, engage, and inspire others
  • How to use executive presence to get things done and execute on business initiatives
  • What to do if you are taking a new assignment or anticipating a new role
