Developing Executive PresenceGreater executive presence can be learned and requires advanced competencies. Those professionals committed to discovering greater executive presence in their interactions will be able to elevate their leadership style and adapt to the organization dynamics and culture.

This is most critical at the executive level where key strategy decisions are made. Having an increased awareness of one’s approach, demeanor, communications and behaviors can be focused to achieve greater presence and performance. 

In addition, the competency of being more outwardly focused, aware of the dynamics that exist in key relationships and the intention to create new opportunities will result in an ability to connect in a confident, poised, sincere and optimistic manner. 

This program will focus on the increased influence available to professionals as they embrace and take responsibility for how others see them. This ability is both the art and science of Executive Presence.  Also, part of the role of an executive is the capacity to navigate complex business and social situations with ease and confidence.  Creating an inviting and conducive environment for others is an advanced skill to learn and convey. 

Executive Presence is a result of making consistent and positive leadership impressions.  The Kaufman Impression Management System will be introduced and used as a framework to identify and define key impression factors used to elevate executive presence. Once mastered, these competencies will allow each individual to elevate their leadership style and become more proactive and positive in managing their impressions in existing and new relationship opportunities.
