Building Blocks of Executive Presence
Body Language: is the nuanced ability to manage the non-verbal cues we transmit and the skills to “translate” and respond to the unconscious signals others send. Advancement to a high-profile leadership role automatically increases visibility, where Body Language plays a heightened role in projecting Executive Presence.
Digital Presence: is consistently projecting Executive Presence through the impersonal medium of virtual or techno-communications.
Emotional Intelligence: is the ability of people to recognize both their own and other people’s emotions – and decide on the best course of action. This all happens in a split second. The intelligence part is what people do with this information to manage and modify behavior in varying circumstances – and achieve goals.
First Impressions: are formed on very little information. We tend to make assumptions and judgments based on spur of the moment hunches and “intuition.” They are formed during that first call or meeting with a new client, new team member, new boss, and with the first voice mail message or visit to a LinkedIn profile.
Gravitas: refers to the actions and behavior that ultimately determine a person’s C-Suite potential. “Having gravitas” implies that a person has both the authority for a position and commitment to manage the role in a compelling manner.
Hosting Business Meals: is an expectation for business professionals today. Executive dining skills are pivotal to business occasions where food and drink are served, as clearly, every business meal represents an opportunity for relationship building. The ability to dine confidently anywhere and with anyone is an intrinsic part of Executive Presence.
How to Command and Work any Room: is the ability to successfully maximize networking opportunities at meetings, conferences and social events.
Key Conversations: refers to the inevitable, challenging exchanges business professionals continuously face. Learning to deflect potential conflict, ease tension and move things along to achieve optimum results, reflects Executive Presence.
Office Politics: is a fact of Corporate life. Aspiring leaders need to understand the subtleties of both actions taken and words spoken by both others and themselves to move forward. Identifying personal leadership and negotiating styles is part of learning to showcase – and stretch strengths – to navigate inner business circles.
On Stage Presence: is the confidence to walk into any kind of meeting or presentation, regardless of the audience, with the self-assurance to positively influence the outcome – and deliver on-point messages.
Personal Branding: is fundamental to establishing a genuine Executive Presence imprint. When people define and refine their leadership strengths to fine-tune their own Personal Brand, it leads to the development of a truly authentic Executive Presence.
Reputation: is the only building block that other people control. It is extremely fragile; Reputation is established and nurtured by what other people say about a person – and the Presence they have, when they are not at hand.
Well-being: is a personal commitment to a healthy regime that allows aspiring leaders at every level to confront pressure, burn the midnight oil and meet exacting deadlines –when faced with the inevitability of crunch time.
