Executive Presence in the Modern Workforce: How to Inspire, Empower, and Influence

About the class

Leadership is an essential component of success. But what does it mean to be a great leader? Take a second and think of a great leader that you look up to - it can be a historical political figure, an executive that inspires you, or even a fictional character. What makes them great? It could be a combination of many traits - speech, look, way of helping others, but all those traits can be summarized as - Executive Presence and Influential Leadership.

When you have executive presence, you exude poise, confidence and overall respect. But establishing your executive presence doesn’t just happen. It is a deliberate act that elevates your influence and personal branding. By leveraging those elements, you can let everyone in your sphere of influence understand what you have to offer that’s distinct from others. Successful leaders are highly effective influencers. The ability to influence people - to motivate, energize, and direct them in the quest for strategic goals - is so integral to the definition of leadership as to be virtually synonymous with it. And to be a successful leader, you need to be conscious of your actions and know how to shape and  influence organizational culture.
