Why CCI is the Executive Presence “Must-Have Training Solution” for aspiring leaders
We stretch our clients to develop their potential, to be the best they can be. Our message is clear: in today’s competitive marketplace, to rise above the crowd Executive Presence matters. We integrate candid feedback with compelling solutions to take people where they know they belong.
Qualifications alone do not advance a career
For some clients, the greatest insight Executive Presence training provides is the realization their credentials, degrees and technical knowledge are only the starting point. Qualifications alone do not advance a career. Initially, this may be tough to accept.
Executive Presence reinforces qualifications
We reassure clients, however, their qualifications provide an essential foundation. Executive Presence reinforces this base with a framework to build on. It’s the synergy between the two – the foundation and framework – that creates a successful structure. When clients understand the dynamic interaction between their qualifications and Executive Presence, they are energized and ready to move forward.
We work with every client to introduce ideas to enhance, refine and polish current behaviors. We ask questions to stimulate reflection. We guide people to think differently, to change direction. We challenge opinions and assumptions.
For every client, we clearly define: the recommended timeframe to achieve desired outcomes, the required steps before, during and following our sessions, and the cost. There’s no guesswork.
The challenge for linear thinkers
Executive Presence training is challenging, especially for logical, sequential thinkers. Although lateral thinking delivers results in research-based professions, sometimes engineers and IT specialists, for example, may underestimate the value of motivating teams through inspiration and influence.
We help these linear thinkers escalate their communications skills through narratives that illustrate circumstances parallel to their own. We use actual, hands-on experiences to demonstrate how stimulating and inspiring people, invigorates performance.
We encourage tough questions
Our role is to ensure every client develops the skills to project their own authentic presence. We encourage clients to explore our approach, our content and to ask hard questions:
- “Will Executive Presence elevate my status?”
- “Will it help me to assert myself?”
- “Will it enhance my network relationships?”
- “Will this training provide a fair and equitable return on investment?”
