Executive Presence: Are you seen as a leader?

September 20, 2017 2:42 PM | Anonymous

“Being perceived as leadership material is essential to being promoted into leadership positions”, according to a new study by the Center for Talent Innovation, a non-profit research organization in New York.  

Performance alone no longer dictates promotions and opportunities for advancement in the workplace. Leaders are now required to have Executive Presence.  Executive Presence is the combination of behaviors and attitudes that enable you to clearly and confidently express your ideas and influence others.   

While every industry has unique variations of Executive Presence, leadership can be obtained by creating an identity associated with confidence, clear communication skills, a vision and the ability to lead and inspire others. After this series, you will have the knowledge, tools and support to take the next steps in your leadership journey.
