Executive presence and impact

Our one-day masterclass on executive presence is perfect for leaders looking to make an impact

How to get results

Ultimately, executive presence and, therefore, impact is the result of a combination of personal traits and outward behaviours that work to create an image of leadership competence and trustworthiness.

From communicating clearly and effectively to demonstrating poise and confidence in unpredictable situations, all leaders should learn to develop and improve their executive presence. 

Course features

Executive presence and impact is a one-day, ready-to-run masterclass on how to maximise executive impact.

This masterclass breaks down the key elements that make up executive leadership presence, from first impressions to strategic thinking.

Participants will learn how to demonstrate gravitas and self-confidence in day-to-day informal and formal situations, communicating clearly and expressively, as well as being assertive without being aggressive or dominant.

The course includes guidance on remaining in control and unflustered in difficult or unpredictable situations and how to influence and make a positive impact on others while still being your authentic self.

We measure and evaluate the impact of the course, giving you confidence about the return on your investment. The relationships and learning community built between participants during the course fosters peer support, engagement and on-going personal development.
