Attention Corporate Trainers:
1. Introduction to Executive Presence & First Impressions
Although high-profile credentials and top-level performance are the price of entry to the corporate workplace, Executive Presence is essential for upward mobility. This Session introduces the Fundamentals of Executive Presence to inspire participants to discover the connections between how they’re perceived by others and their own self-awareness. These factors, in combination, have a profound impact on personal leadership development. How can you improve your leadership skills? This is only one aspect of the numerous topics covered.
Part One addresses the foundations of Executive Presence – what it is and what it’s not. Executive Presence has 4 pillars or components. Part Two takes a close-up look First Impressions – and how we are constantly judging others and being judged. Learn more >
2. Body Language
Advancement to a high-profile leadership role automatically increases visibility. This means Body Language plays a heightened role in projecting Executive Presence. The nuanced ability to manage non-verbal cues we transmit is empowering. Equally important is developing the skills to “translate” and respond to the unconscious signals others send. Learn more >
3. Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence is the ability to identify both personal emotions – and those of others – 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 their behavior in varying circumstances – to achieve goals. Often called EQ, to emphasize its status and importance – like IQ – Emotional Intelligence both defines and sets superior leaders apart. During this session, participants examine the building blocks of emotional and social intelligence to sharpen their personal emotional awareness. Learn more >
4. Applying Neuroscience to Leadership
Neuroleadership is the action of integrating the science of the brain with leadership behaviors. Dr. David Rock, the internationally acclaimed leadership coach, coined the term “Neuroleadership” to describe the integration of neuroscience with leadership.
When people understand the functions and power of the Executive Brain, or prefrontal cortex (PFC), they develop greater insights into how to effectively manage the emotions and behaviors that impact daily business interactions.
This session examines the powers of the Executive Brain and how it’s linked to more effective leadership through improved self-awareness to:
- Optimize performance, engagement and productivity
- Build healthy relationships
5. Stress Management and Resilience
In today’s work environment, people are often in a constant state of over-extension. In small doses, stress can help them perform under pressure and act as a motivator. Out of control, it may dilute people’s effectiveness, interfere with their well-being and impact how they interact with people.
This training provides the tools to identify potential sources of stress and how stress can be both avoided and managed. It covers how to deactivate the stress reaction known as the “fight or flight” response, notably in difficult situations.
