Executive presence has long been acknowledged as an important, yet mysterious “X-Factor” in leadership. Why do so many people talk about presence, and, how do you define it? If you have received feedback on your presence, how can you develop it? This course will answer those questions. For every leader who wants to be ready for the top job, or has moved into a senior role and wants to make a bigger impact, we address the fuzzy definitions and diverse perspectives by introducing a science-based model of presence, which is now used in top companies and in more than 40 countries.
This highly practical course will open your eyes, and encourage you to see how easy it is to develop your own authentic and powerful brand of presence. You’ll discover how others view your presence and what that means to your ability to influence and make an impact. The course is built around a science-based assessment based on empirical studies in leadership, communication, psychology, and social action, philosophy and ethics. Highly practical, informative and business-friendly, the course opens the aperture on your own strengths and gaps, and gives you tools to develop the kind of presence that opens the doors to the C-Suite.
