If you are then you need to improve and build your “Executive Presence”. Wondering what Executive Presence is ?

“Executive presence, is the Missing Link Between Merit and Success, It encompasses the qualities and attributes that enable individuals to project credibility, command attention, and influence others in a leadership capacity. It’s the unique combination of behaviours, communication skills, and appearance that sets exceptional leaders apart, allowing them to make a lasting impact both in and outside of their organisations”

Sylvia Ann Hewitt.

The  Framework for Executive Presence includes three core pillars:

  1. Gravitas: Gravitas involves projecting a sense of confidence, decisiveness, and authority. It encompasses the ability to speak with clarity and conviction, make well-informed decisions even in challenging situations, and command respect through a span and authentic demeanour.
  2. Communication: Effective communication is a crucial aspect of executive presence. Leaders with span communication skills can convey complex ideas in a clear and engaging manner. This includes not only verbal communication but also non-verbal cues such as body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice.
  3. Appearance: Appearance refers to the visual presentation of a leader, including grooming, attire, and overall physical presence. While appearance is not the sole determinant of executive presence, it does play a role in conveying professionalism, attention to detail, and alignment with organisational values.

Ultimately, executive presence is what enables leaders to leave a lasting impression, inspire confidence, and drive results. It’s a crucial factor in career advancement, building relationships, and effectively leading teams and organisations to success.

There is HOPE !

It’s not solely about charisma or an innate personality trait. It’s a skill that can be developed and refined over time through self-awareness, practice, and deliberate efforts to enhance these three pillars.
