The Power of Your Presence: Strategies for Leadership and Professional Success

Has someone ever caught your eye as soon as he or she walked into the room? Have you ever heard someone say, "I trusted her the minute I met her?" This is the wow factor and is often called executive presence - a blend of competencies, skills, energy and image that send all the right signals and play a big role in assumptions about a person's capabilities. What's more, it makes up 26 percent of what it takes to get promoted.

If you are seeking career success, identifying your assets and how to leverage them can make the difference between advancing in your career, being tapped for leadership positions, successfully developing business, or staying right where you are. When you develop your presence, others take you more seriously, see you as capable, trust you more, and are more likely to consider you for promotion and increases in pay.
