Developing Your Executive Presence & Expanding Your Career

March 3, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

$350

This virtual seminar is split between two consecutive days. Participants must attend both sessions to complete the seminar. Registration covers both sections.

Part 1: Wed, March 3 | 8:30am – 12:00pm
Part 2: Thu, March 4 | 8:30am – 12:00pm


What is executive presence? And why do some people seem to have it in spades? There’s so much advice out there – and none of it really captures what makes leaders stand out! Popular books and articles are helpful but tend to oversimplify the phenomenon. Executive presence is more than commanding the room, wearing the right suit, or giving a great presentation (which is all important). The question is, what is it, and how can you achieve it?

Authenticity is critical in order to show up with the confidence required to “feel” like an executive.  Presence is not about acting.  It is about understanding your personal brand, knowing your core values and being relentlessly focused on allowing those components to guide your decisions and behaviors.

Key Topics

In this course, through a series of reflection exercises and interactive assignments participants will:

  • Explore their own biases and investigate benefits of embracing biases and prejudices to assist in their own branding and presence creation
  • Rediscover their core values as a means to guide personal branding
  • Understand the connection between personal accountability and creating the image you desire
  • Create an intentional, personal development plan directly related to presence and brand

Who Should Attend

This session is appropriate for leaders at all levels who are interested in exploring their values, leadership style and ways in which they magic demonstrate authenticity.
