Leadership presence is that elusive quality that sets you up for the next promotion and gives your career an extra boost. It's a blending of personal and interpersonal communication skills that when combined, send all the right signals. It's the impact you make when you show up and contribute in meetings. It's knowing how to project confidence and keep your poise under pressure. It's the ability to present your ideas decisively, assertively, and succinctly. It's the way you influence and engage others by being authentic, empathetic, and motivational. It's relaxing into your unique brand of charisma. It's using body language signals to help others see you as the talented leader you truly are.
The key to developing leadership presence is to realize that it is all about impression management. As one successful leader told me: "You need to show up each day the way you want to be perceived - which is simple to say, but difficult to accomplish unless you do your homework and really know yourself." Backed by neuroscience and based on research from Harvard, Stanford, UCLA, MIT Media Lab, and Columbia School of Business, this acclaimed and engaging session gives you tips, tools and strategies you can put into action immediately to align other people's perception of you with your best authentic self.
