Executive Presence is a strength that could allow anyone to advance in their careers, businesses and lives. It goes beyond your listening, critical thinking, speaking skills and having a sense of higher emotional intelligence.
Executive Presence reduces conflict leading you to influence and persuade with ease. Communicating, delivering a presentation, challenging a C-level audience, negotiating with seniors or highly experienced people requires executive presence. This could be for stakeholders in different scenarios:
- Sales – delivery of a powerful pitch to a client or selling a concept
- Technical – ensure teams, budget holders or clients on projects get updates with clarity
- Business Case – influencing to get approvals for your ideas
- High-stake – persuasion with ease when defending decisions made
