Executive Presence sets you apart in business, both in person and online. We demonstrate presence through subtle cues – the combination of how you present yourself and communicate. When working in a virtual world, it’s even harder to demonstrate presence, be memorable, and connect. We don’t always see all the non-verbal cues, it can take longer to process information, and it’s more difficult to build lasting connections. So how do we overcome these issues?
One easy thing you can do to demonstrate presence online is take your time when presenting information. You’ll connect better if you pause between phrases and give people time to engage. And, start every meeting with a smile!
