Executive Presence – What It Is and How to Get It!


What is the one area that holds back Executives and Executive Assistants from moving forward?  The answer is: Executive Presence.  In fact, “executive presence” counts for 26% of what it takes to get promoted.  If you don’t get this on right, it can be detrimental to your career. 

Whether you realize it or not, it’s not your position that gives you power, it’s your behavior!   Executive presence communicates power, consistency and influence.  It supports your credibility and inspires others to have confidence in you.

I will teach you what executive presence is and how to demonstrate it so that you can make the impact you desire.

Learning Highlights and Outcomes:

  • Understand the three spheres of executive presence
  • How to exude passion, readiness and the ability to think on your feet in the midst of chaos with confidence and composure
  • The art of influencing others
  • Maximize your image through body language
  • How to analyze facial expressions and gestures that speak without words

Bonus Handouts: Be Remembered For All the Right Reasons

Hot Tip: You can demonstrate executive presence in every meeting you attend. It begins with knowing your value and speaking up. You’re not just at the meeting to provide coffee and take minutes. You’re there to contribute.  Never leave a meeting without providing at least one piece of valuable information, a strategic question or an idea.
