Executive Presence Workshop

The Challenges 

‘How am I currently perceived by those who matter inside and outside my organisation?’

‘Do I project myself as a leader of people and projects?’

‘Am I doing and saying the right things?’

Program Overview

Highly-effective leaders have a different set of skills to their technical and professional skills.  They have “executive presence,” that is, they know how to be perceived as leaders by those who matter inside and outside their organisations.  In fact, everything we do and say is absorbed and interpreted by others who decide if we fit into their framework of leadership or not.

People Results' Executive Presence Half-Day Workshop is stimulating, interactive and practical.   It equips emerging leaders with enhanced interpersonal skills and insights enabling them to communicate at executive levels with poise and confidence. 

In this exclusive Program, participants gain a keen appreciation of the strengths and abilities they need to take up a senior leadership role at the appropriate time in their careers.

First delivered in September 2010, Executive Presence is our most popular short course.  Many hundreds of participants have attended from a diverse range of public sector and private sector organisations.  Please click here for testimonials.
