Executive Presence Coaching

Executive Presence is contextual and involves being aligned with your stakeholders and the business imperative. Coaching can help you determine which qualities need to be highlighted and how you can develop them further. Platform skills play a part in influencing, engaging and inspiring others but your stakeholders will observe whether you ‘walk the talk’ too. The quality of day to day interactions is key as they form impressions of your leadership brand and assessment of your effectiveness.

During the pandemic Executive Presence was the ability to demonstrate composure in a crisis, grace under fire.  Whereas post Covid 19 Executive Presence will be a combination of resilience, vision, confidence, empathy, and compassion Leaders will need to show   confidence and humility. They will be expected to be decisive but willing to take a ‘U’ turn if they choose the wrong direction. The pandemic has been wearing, we have all made sacrifices although everyone’s experience has been different. Going forward leaders need to display their emotional intelligence by being in tune with their staff, realistic and sensitive when making demands.

Executive Presence coaching is tailored to the individual and the situation to ensure you develop your leadership brand and deliver on the business imperative.

It is not just an assessment it is a powerful development tool. The structured approach to taking in feedback makes it a deeper experience as a result of being able to view feedback against audience types.
