Module 3 – Capturing the Essence of Executive Presence – Joe Schaffer

Ask ten different leaders, each oozing with executive presence to define exactly what executive presence is - and you are likely to get ten different answers.

Yes, descriptors such as poised, professional, concise, inspiring, memorable, charismatic are sure to appear, along with respected, influential, confident, thoughtful, compelling and impressive. Perhaps gravitas will be thrown in for good measure. Put all these together and one is often described as having “it.” Perhaps a perfect example of where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

In this session we will be exploring the building blocks, conditions, competencies and practices associated with executive presence, in an effort to enhance the effectiveness of Vertitext Legal Solutions leadership team.

Upon completion of the module participants will be able to:

  • Understand how communication methodology and style influence executive presence
  • Learn how a leader’s social style impacts executive presence
  • Become aware of how external factors impact executive presence
