My approach to executive presence
Executive presence is the key to real impact. It is the ability to connect authentically with others, and to inspire and influence them to act. We have all seen it leaders, politicians, celebrities – people who are confident and comfortable, who convey positive energy, and who easily connect and empathize with others. People with presence speak clearly and assertively, they have gravitas and authority, and they engender trust by being real.
Yes, real. Because presence is not about putting on an act, but being more truly ourselves. Our belief in ourselves and what we are saying can easily be read in our non-verbal behaviour – our physical stability, posture, breathing, tone of voice, facial expression, and the energy we send out. If “what” we say is not aligned with “how” we say it, others will not put their trust in us.
We are all born with presence. As we grow up, we start to adapt our behaviour to the expectations of others and to and compromise our authenticity.
Executive presence training enables you to rediscover how to be present and to make fuller use of your capabilities. You bring yourself, your ambition, your personal traits and your natural talents. I can help you to clarify your intention, to build your awareness, and to align how you show up, communicate and act with who you are and what you want to achieve.
Together we will bring out your executive presence, a presence that will do yourself justice and enhance your personal and professional impact.
