Developing Executive Presence in Leadership

Are you radiating with self-assurance and composure through your executive presence? Want to seal a deal with conviction or inspire those around you? It’s natural for those in leadership and management to want to make a first impression on new relationships and to encourage key decision-makers with executive presence.

Developing executive presence can open opportunities for you to shine through with confidence, with a professional aura, appearance, behaviour and communication abilities that can be used to a benefit in your leadership development. This skill can be cultivated and enhanced in our expert-led online virtual training from our Leadership & Management series.
