Executive Presence

What is this executive presence? Simply, it’s who you are amid the people, subordinates, or your audience.

Here are the qualities you need to develop your executive presence before the audience.(From the website www.ajc.com.)

  • Candor: The appearance of honesty, through the willingness and skill to constructively tell it like it is.
  • Clarity: The ability to tell your story in an intuitively clear and compelling way.
  • Openness: The appearance of not prejudging, of being willing to consider another’s point of view.
  • Passion: The expression of commitment, motivation, and drive that shows people you really believe in what you do.
  • Poise: The look of sophistication, conveying a background of education and experience.
  • Self-confidence: The air of assurance, such that others know you have the required strength and resolve.
  • Sincerity: The conviction of believing in and meaning what you say.
  • Thoughtfulness: The projection of thinking or of having thought through something before responding.
  • Warmth: The appearance of being accessible to others and of being interested in them.

Do you have these qualities? Do I have these qualities? Let’s continue to learn not just for ourselves, but because of the thought that as we improve ourselves we increase our capacity to be effective toward others and help them become better in leadership.

God bless you more.
