Executive Presence for Female Leaders: How the image you project Impacts Performance

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at 12pm (Central)

Most people intuitively recognize great “executive presence” (EP), but have a hard time defining it or knowing how to develop their own executive presence.

executive-presence-for-female-leaders_-how-the-image-you-project-impacts-performance--3-EP is an amalgam of qualities that true leaders exude, a presence that telegraphs you're in charge or deserve to be. EP is critical for leaders today because, without executive presence, you likely won't advance in your career.  More than ever, working professionals are judged on presence as well as on performance.  And for female leaders, EP can be even more critical.

In this webinar, MaryBeth will discuss "Executive Presence" for female leaders. Using the research of workplace expert Sylvia Ann Hewlett on executive presence, we will discuss the specific qualities and skills that make up strong executive presence, as well as strategies to improve EP.  
This webinar will cover:
  • What are the components of “executive presence” (EP);
  • Why EP is essential to great leadership;
  • How you can acquire the EP you need for success.

Join us and learn how to build up your EP and unleash your leadership potential!
