Great leaders connect authentically on both an intellectual and emotional level to motivate and inspire others toward a desired outcome. This is the essence of leadership presence.
Elevating Your Professional Presence helps your high-potentials, independent contributors, consultants, and others demonstrate the confidence that matches their subject matter expertise and intellectual capacity. By mastering the subtleties of voice, body, and message alignment, participants emerge with a commanding presence that enables them to present themselves and their ideas more powerfully to clients and colleagues at all levels.
Elevating Your Professional Presence provides a highly experiential approach to development, combining pre-work, a two-day classroom workshop, and reinforcement to strengthen learning outcomes.
This program is suitable for a variety of levels, experience and organisational roles, from middle to senior managers. Also targeting at individual contributors who must influence without authority and consultants and services professionals who need to communicate effectively at all levels.
Participants will gain insights into their own ‘Professional Presence’ strengths and weaknesses and develop plans to address any gaps. These include; stronger self-belief, developing greater confidence when delivering feedback, saying no and pushing back.
It is also important for your professionals in technical or scientific roles who need the presence skills to match their subject matter or technical expertise or for anyone else in your organisation who could benefit from an understanding of the skills of presence.
On day one supported by facilitator feedback and coaching, participants learn skills based on actor training to “own” how they show up in different situations.
Day two focuses on business scenarios with an emphasis on peer-to-peer coaching and feedback.
