Executive Presence

· Leadership,Communication,Confidence
If you are anything like me, you find it easy to tell if someone does or does not have Executive Presence, but find it very difficult to know exactly what it is they do or do not do – or do it yourself.
When it is so unclear, it’s very easy to procrastinate and give up trying!
That’s why I created this five day challenge to clarify the Executive Presence behaviors, and offer a simple, structured five-step method to adopt them, so you can get more value from your meetings and build a professional personal brand.
Your colleagues will see the difference in a week. And you will learn a repeatable method to go further and further.
So stop procrastinating and start becoming the influential executive - the impactful and influential professional - that you want to be.

This is a living collection of resources that I share with my Personal Effectiveness classes to support their personal and leadership development planning towards attracting attention, being understood, getting remembered, being repeated and getting action. It is also useful for Coaching clients to develop their Presence, Charisma, Assertiveness, Rapport and Gravitas.
