12 STEPS TO POWER PRESENCE

How to Assert Your Authority to Lead

It matters what you say…
And what you do!
How you present yourself
as a leader matters!

Authenticity is the “right stuff” of leadership!

Leadership presence is something I coach regularly.

Presence is the window to a leader’s character that he or she shows to others. Consider it the real you, the authentic self. Presence gives people a reason to believe in your leadership and follow your lead. It is a summation of your competence, credibility and confidence.

Presence is developed and reinforced by words, but mostly by example. It is the ability to connect authentically with others. Strong leadership presence inspires trust.

Learn to earn that trust through your words… and through your actions!
