Executive presence is easy to spot yet tough to define. Clearly, leaders seem to have this quality in abundance. Interestingly, having a better executive presence is closely linked to rapid promotions, attracts positive attention and inspires others around you. While it may seem hard to acquire, focusing on the following will help enhance your executive presence:

Appearance: At work, your physical presence conveys both professionalism and confidence. Besides clothes, neat work habits add to your visual appeal.



Communication: As words add weight, good communication skills are extremely important. Leaders are able to present to diverse audience, connect with their listeners at a personal level and command respect.


Body language: Direct eye contact, firm handshake and swift body movements enhance visual impact. Posture helps too as walking and sitting upright conveys authority with a dash of dignity.


Listening skills: Leaders know that displaying good listening skills shows genuine interest, humility and helps make an emotional connect. Also, it shows their ability to hear conflicting views and listen to feedback.


Maintaining Calm: Leaders know that remaining calm in the eye of a storm highlights their ability to manage interruptions & work-related stresses with ease.


Voice: Conveying your message with conviction & clarity is found in abundance in both business & political leaders. Varying the tone, volume and pace to captivate their audience, effective use of pause and emphasizing important words all help maintain audience interest.
