[By Professor John Ullmen]
People with executive presence inspire confidence, even under conditions of stress, pressure, and uncertainty.
It’s a vital leadership characteristic. It's also a difference-maker when organizations choose people for special opportunities, positions, and promotions.
People aren’t born with executive presence. It's something you can develop, if you know where to focus your effort.
That's what Dr. Ullmen explains in this program. Drawing on research and practice, he outlines the four key factors that drive executive presence, and the specific actions that make them work for you. He covers the thinking patterns, emotional patterns and action patterns that characterize leaders with high executive presence.
He also explains the difference between “internal” and “external” presence, and how to enhance both to increase your self-assurance and positive impact on others.
In addition, he addresses how to do all of this without being fake or feeling inauthentic, and how to be "fully present" consistently in ways that drive results, strengthen relationships, and enhance one's reputation genuinely as a purpose-oriented, inspiring leader.
