“Someone with executive presence has a reputation for making things happen, and they are respected as an authority. They earn people's respect, not because they demand it, but because they command it,” explains Joel Garfinkle. Joel is one of the top 50 executive coaches in the entire United States. He is a successful author of 11 books and 300 articles on leadership. Today, Joel brings his 23 years of executive coaching experience to the table to talk about the importance of executive presence.
It is not enough to just lead with authenticity. A leader must also exhibit a strong executive presence. This presence is all about radiating confidence, speaking with gravitas, and maintaining a perception of competency at all times. This tends to come easier for extroverts, as they are often the ones speaking up the most in meetings. To really showcase an executive presence, you must trust yourself to participate in meetings fully, let your ideas be heard, and stand up for your convictions.
Leaders with executive presence get farther in their careers, because they are perceived as being worthy of both trust and respect. There are 9 competencies for determining executive presence. Learn more about how to build an executive presence, so that you can lead with authenticity, confidence, and competence.
