What’s unique about our Executive Presence Trainings? 

Other executive presence trainings emphasize looking good from the outside. While our Executive Presence Training also fully builds external displays of confidence, we don’t stop there. We build another crucial dimension: authentic  internal power and confidence. Doing so prevents ‘imposter syndrome’ (a persistent fear of being exposed as a fraud, which erodes confidence and will eventually extinguish executive presence skills).  Also, it’s real  power that your key stakeholders will buy into. They sense the difference between real power and feigned, and so do you.

Longer Description

Far from business stuffy, our Executive Presence Training is utterly transformational, 90% interactive and a powerful teambuilding experience.

What Is It?  Have you ever noticed how some people – without saying a word – radiate a calm, commanding authority that automatically generates respect and high-performance?  You’ve seen it before: when these people walk in a room, everyone sits up a bit straighter, brushes off excuses, and gets down to business. These commanding individuals have a way of being that commands respect, creates top performance, cements relationships with key stakeholders – and generates continued loyalty and new growth. Our Executive Presence Training shows each participant how to radiate similar levels of power, confidence and warm credibility. This creates buy-in and builds solid relationships. Because the power we teach becomes REAL – the effect is not a stiff, manufactured leadership persona. Instead, each participant re-kindles his/her own latent power and develops his/her own unique version of relational executive power.  And because the learned power is based in authenticity, people respond favorably. The way that we teach EP works. Even experienced senior and C-Suite leaders benefit from these corporate trainings.

What’s unique about our Corporate Trainings?

Other executive presence trainings emphasize looking good from the outside. While our senior leaders course also fully builds external displays of confidence, we don’t stop there. We build another crucial dimension: authentic internal power and confidence. Doing so prevents false, stiff personas. Its real power and confidence that your key stakeholders will buy into. They sense the difference, and so do you. True power and confidence are irresistible, and create buy-in.
