Leadership presence is a blending of personal and interpersonal skills that send all the right signals. It's how you show up and contribute in meetings. It's projecting confidence and keeping your poise under pressure. It's presenting ideas in ways that increase your credibility. It's deepening relationships through empathy and optimism. It's body language that makes you look like a leader. It's self-promotion without arrogance. It's the ability to bring your authentic best self into every encounter.
Leadership presence sets you up for the next promotion and gives your career that extra boost.
That's what it is. Here is what it's not: It's not an attribute that is automatically assigned to you because of your title, potential, expertise, or business results.
Instead, leadership presence depends entirely on how other people evaluate you -- and women face unique external and internal challenges when it comes to being perceived as leaders. While you don't have total control over people's perception, you have more control than you think.
Backed by research from Harvard, Stanford, UCLA, MIT Media Lab, and Columbia School of Business, this highly interactive and engaging program, offers tips, tools, and strategies for projecting leadership presence that are powerful, effective, and can be put into practice immediately.
Participants need to bring their mobile phones to the session.
This is a great session for any women leader who wants to know the intangibles of leadership including how to effectively project leadership presence as a female! One of the best sessions on women leadership I ever attended!
