Executive Presence for the Non-Executive

As professionals progress through the early stages of their careers, performance and results often matter most. But moving forward, executive presence—or lack thereof—can significantly impact an individual's career growth. Our introspective and engaging two-day course takes a close look at author Sylvia Ann Hewlett's three pillars of executive presence: how you act (gravitas), how you speak (communication) and how you look (appearance). Join us to develop a specific plan for achieving the presence which executives admire: learn to project confidence, demonstrate emotional intelligence, command the room, polish your appearance and more as you strive for the 'it' factor in order to open executive-level doors.


Completion of a brief, online assessment prior to the course is required; to ensure timely analysis, we recommend enrolling at least 3-5 days prior to course start date.
