Executive Presence

Executive presence is the ability to inspire confidence. In a leadership position, this skill plays a critical role in persuading subordinates that you’re a leader they are willing to follow. When an employee demonstrates that they’re reliable, capable, and visionary the entire team benefits — and senior leaders can more clearly see employee potential.


Leaders and employees who are well respected, calm under pressure, and inspiring to their peers perform more fully and share their true gifts. They experience more:

  • Opportunity
  • Equity
  • Success
  • Confidence in self and others
  • Trust
  • Influence

They are also more professionally engaged and likely to stay longer with your company.

My approach

We’ll begin with an intake meeting to determine what’s working and what’s not. From there, we outline a 90 day plan to increase executive presence in a positive and impactful way that will benefit the organization.

  • Establish a personal mission statement—get clear on your individual vision and one for the future.
  • Build your communication skills and invest time in improving those skills in person, via phone, and in writing — both during crisis and in times of calm.

  • Discover your style of influence and build on it for impact.
  • Gain tools for how to operate effectively under stress and ensure your reputation is one of composure and calm, vs. overwhelmed and frenzied.
  • Learn how to make a good first impression. Visual appearance is important and first impressions, whether conscious or subconscious, are powerful.

  • Understand the way you communicate and learn how to speak with brevity and impact.
  • WorkTraits: Gain a deeper understanding of your own behaviors, as well as your blind spots, and reactions to stress.
  • Increase self-awareness and understand how others perceive you.

  • 360 Review: Get feedback from supervisors, peers, and subordinates.
