Leading with Executive Presence

Prudential Financial, Inc.

Business Context

You are an emerging star in your firm or an expert in your field. But sometimes stress creeps in and detracts from your performance, especially in new, challenging, and highly visible situations. Many leaders struggle to find the balance between the firm’s message and authentic communication. And a strong presence is no longer just “nice-to-have” in the global marketplace – it is essential to lead well, create real change, and drive results for clients.

Challenge & Solution

If you show impatience, fatigue, rigidity, or insensitivity, your credibility and influence drops. That’s why executive presence transforms attorneys, so that they can perform when the stakes are high and bring the best of themselves into their communication with others.

What is executive presence? It’s the net effect of how you act, look, and communicate. It puts you in the driver’s seat of your professional success and your firm’s future. Exec-Comm’s Leading with Executive Presence will help you unleash your greatest strengths and qualities as a leader, connect you with your listeners, and show others the talents and gifts you have to offer.
