Executive Presence Self-Assessment
As a coach and speaker, Brenda is often asked, “What is ‘Executive Presence?’ And can it really be developed?”
Her response: Absolutely.
Let’s face it: No one is born with Executive Presence – it’s a learned behavior with multiple facets, and it is strengthened through intention and practice. Find out more below from Brenda and assess your current level of Executive Presence by answering the questions on Brenda’s Executive Presence Self-Assessment.
What is Executive Presence? And more importantly, how do you get it?
The way I like to define Executive Presence is a certain set of attitudes, behaviors, and skills which – when combined – send the right signals, influence others, and ultimately drive results. When you develop powerful Executive Presence, you automatically strengthen your Leadership Personal Brand, i.e., the way others perceive, think, and feel about YOU™, which is a critically important foundation of success.
“That sounds appealing,” many clients have told me, “but can Executive Presence really be developed?” Absolutely. Let’s face it: No one is born with Presence – it is a learned behavior with multiple facets, and it is strengthened through intention and practice.
What is the essential first step in developing your own Presence? It’s getting clear on how well you fare with your current level of Presence.
With that in mind, I encourage you to download my Executive Presence Self-Assessment that highlights the fundamental facets of Executive Presence. This will help you review the current reality of your own Presence, as it is now, both in your personal and professional life.
Assess the State of Your Own Executive Presence
Take this self-assessment and see how well you are doing on the key facets of Executive Presence, which can in turn impact your Leadership Personal Brand.
Obviously, if you rated yourself high (a “5” or a “6”) on all 15 of these Executive Presence attitudes, behaviors, and skills, good for you – well done! Based on my experience though, that would be rare. It’s not unusual to have room for improvement on at least a few of these attributes.
So, take a moment to review your self-scores, and write down two or three aspects of Presence that are the most important for you. Decide on the facets you would like to improve, and then make a plan to strengthen them.
