Reputation is one of six components that define ‘gravitas.’ In the parlance of Executive Presence, gravitas refers to the actions and behavior that ultimately determine a person’s C-Suite potential.

Regardless of how well educated, skilled and ambitious you are, it is important to reflect on internationally renowned Dr. Wayne Dyer’s statements regarding reputation. As a leading author and speaker in the field of self-development, Dr. Dyer stated; “Your reputation is in the hands of others. That’s what the reputation is. You can’t control that. The only thing you can control is your character.” Unquestionably, your reputation is extremely fragile; it is established — and nurtured— by what others say about you. It follows you everywhere; it is the presence you have even when you’re not there.
