Leading with Executive Presence

Bayer Health Care

Business Context

You are a leader, a corporate rising star or an expert in your field. But how do you stand out from the crowd? How can you use strong executive presence to go from good to great? Sometimes stress creeps in and detracts from your performance, especially in new, challenging and highly visible situations. Executive presence is no longer just a nice-to-have in the global marketplace - it is essential to lead a great team, impact real change and drive the bottom line.

Challenge & Solution

How can you consistently perform and build favorable connections even when you’re being stretched or running low on energy? If you show fatigue, nerves, rigidity, or insensitivity, your credibility and likeability drops. That’s why executive presence transforms leaders, so that they can perform when the stakes are high and bring their best self into their communication with others.

Solid executive presence is the net effect of how you act, look and communicate. It puts you in the driver’s seat of your professional success. This program will help you recognize your greatest strengths and qualities as a leader, connect you with your audience, and show others the talents and gifts you have to offer the world.
