As women move forward in their careers, the discussion in most organizations often defaults to their “executive presence.” Interestingly, executive presence has remained a mysterious “X Factor” in leadership. Some describe it as gravitas or charisma, while others focus on surface-level qualities of leadership.
Through our research, we have redefined presence in a way that levels the playing field for women leaders. We’ve gone beyond executive image and presentation skill, to identify the specific qualities of leadership presence that enable both men and women to motivate, align, inspire and move people to act.
This women's leadership program departs from the underlying message to women in many programs, that they need to “fix” what is holding them back. Rather than a one-size fits all approach, you'll explore your own qualities of presence in a supportive environment with other women like you.

The program provides you with a unique opportunity to interact with women leaders who have similar business acumen and experience. Through thoughtful reflection, guided discussion, and constructive dialogue, you’ll gain clarity about how you can grow and achieve your goals.
Prior to the session, you complete an executive presence assessment, the Bates ExPI, which provides you multi-rater feedback on perceptions of your executive presence. Our coaches guide you through the 360 feedback and interpretation of the report. You’ll work with a coach to explore what it means to your role, challenges and business imperatives and career aspirations.
The course is designed for women leaders with responsibility for teams, projects, businesses and enterprises. The Bates ExPI assessment measures qualities and facets of leadership that are developed as leaders gain maturity and experience. New managers typically do not have the leadership experience or scope of responsibilities that are measured in the Bates ExPI assessment.
