What is Executive Presence?


Several years ago I was introduced to the concept of executive presence (EP) and it has drastically changed how I approach my work life.


I have read several articles and approaches to executive presence, but the best in my estimation is Executive Presence: The Missing Link between Merit and Success by Dr. Sylvia Ann Hewlett.


Based on her research, she describes 3 pillars to EP:


Gravitas or how you command a room.


Communication or the verbal and non-verbal cues you put out when you enter that room.


Appearance or how you present yourself visually and aesthetically to the audience in that room.


I have successfully executed one-day conferences and workshops that will help you or your employees successfully achieve executive presence. It can mean the difference between closing a deal or leaving empty handed.


“Three things can happen when you walk into a room. You can walk in and no one notices. You can walk in and everyone notices for the wrong reasons. Or you can walk in as the crowd parts for you to walk by. I can help you get noticed in ways that are positive and beneficial for your future.”


Book me for a training seminar, coaching session or work with me to plan a one-day seminar for your community.
