Executive Presence for Women Workshop


Highly-effective leaders have a different set of skills to their technical and professional knowledge and experience.  They have “executive presence,” that is, they know how to be perceived as a leader by those who matter, inside and outside their organisation.

People Results' Executive Presence for Women Half-Day Workshop is stimulating, interactive and practical. It equips women managers and professionals with the insights and leadership communication skills that will enable them to be poised, confident and effective at senior levels in their organisations and external forums.

Create and manage your executive presence and gain further visibility and credibility by implementing the practical strategies and skills covered in our exclusive Executive Presence for Women workshop.  The Workshop directly addresses challenging self-questions such as:

  •      How am I currently being perceived?
  •      Do I project myself as a leader of people and projects?
  •      Am I doing and saying the right things?
