Executive presence determines whether you gain access to opportunity. And, the more significant the opportunity, the more important executive presence becomes. ~ Polly Meyer
Building gravitas enables people to command respect, communicate with confidence and stand out from the crowd. In a competitive environment, gravitas helps people get promoted more quickly, build stronger relationships, win more business and get better results.
It's not just what you say, but how you say it. Your tone of voice, the words you choose, your ability to use silence and eye contact, your inflection, delivery and body language, your interpersonal skills...all shape other people’s perception of your effectiveness as a communicator and leader.
Perceptions are everything. Stakeholder feedback from trusted allies builds perceptions and leadership behaviors in parallel. Seeing potential pitfalls and focusing on specific skills to accelerate performance can help struggling executives get back on track.
Your organization’s success hinges on the personal effectiveness of its leaders. Increase their self-awareness, develop their communication skills and leadership behaviors, and the entire organization reaps the benefits.

The pressure is on when you step into an executive role. Whether it's because it's a whole new role or a sudden crisis hits, it's easy for executives to fall into common pitfalls.
Often, these are smart, talented leaders who were promoted for great performance. So what goes wrong?
It’s the things they don’t see coming. The dynamics around them change unexpectedly. They’re faced with more complex decisions, higher risk, and a larger span of influence.
My executive coaching examines the key pressure points that can cause executives to struggle. Then I coach them through the pitfalls that may lie ahead - before they fall into them. And more importantly, they create a plan to hit the ground running.

Develop confidence, gravitas and influence.
How do others perceive you? The fact is, no matter what you are trying to achieve, the answer to that question will dictate your level of success.
Intelligence, expertise and hard work are important, but they’re not enough. When you want to be seen as a mature and confident leader, influencing across organizational levels, and needing to build strong relationships, you need executive presence.
Executive presence is a blend of core traits and competencies that send all the right signals. You know it when you see it. Leaders with executive presence have gravitas. They’re calm under pressure, act decisively in a crisis, they communicate clearly, think on their feet and persuade others to take positive action. In short, they get results with people.
