Developing Leadership Presence & Influence
Executive presence has long been acknowledged as a critical factor in leadership. However, its definition has often been mysterious and subject to diverse perspectives. As a result, leaders have received feedback on presence without a roadmap for action that connects clearly to business objectives. The default assumption is to equate presence with appearance and presentation skills. While these factors are important, they make up only a small piece of the "executive presence puzzle" that helps leaders sustain goal-directed action in an organization.
Participants in this workshop will experience The Bates Executive Presence Index,™ which takes executive presence to a deeper level. Through extensive research in leadership, communications, psychology, and social action theories and literature, executive presence has been clarified as a three-dimensional model of character, substance, and style. Within these dimensions are 15 distinct facets that are proven to make up a leader's overall presence and level of influence.
In addition, participants will receive a comprehensive feedback report with data on ratings broken down by rater category and at the item-level. All participants receive professional support to review, interpret, and apply feedback reports. Individualized and group-based approaches to feedback are available based upon the indicated needs of sponsoring companies and individual participants.
For this reason, registration will close no later than six weeks prior to workshop, to provide ample time for completion of the pre-session assessment requirements. Register today for early bird savings!!
