When I present seminars on leadership presence, I ask my audiences: “What is the first thing you think of when you hear the term self-promotion?” Men often respond with answers like: “Self-promotion is smart,” and “Staying visible is crucial to success.” Women, however, are less comfortable with the concept: “I don’t want to be one […]
As more interactions move from in-person environments to online events, your ability to project virtual leadership presence is quickly becoming the key to your continued success.

Work from home, don’t meet in person – or if you must get together, keep your social distance!

Leadership presence is that illusive “we know it when we see it” quality. You may have a leadership title or tremendous leadership potential, but that alone does not give you presence. Being perceived as a leader when interacting with customers, peers or executives is the essence of leadership presence. Your leadership presence is evaluated by others based on how you show up and contribute in meetings, how well you project confidence and keep poise under pressure and whether you can engage others in ways that are authentic, empathetic and motivational. STAND OUT walks you through achieving this presence so you get that next promotion and give your career that extra boost.

I have been speaking on the topic of leadership presence for several years, but only lately created a program designed for women – and the question I get most often is, “Why focus on women?” My answer is, as they say in the commercial, “Because we’re worth it!” We’re highly educated. According to the National […]
Most leaders agree that effective collaboration is more important than ever in today’s turbulent business environment. In fact, a company’s very survival may depend on how well it can combine the potential of its people and the quality of the information they possess with their ability — and willingness — to share what they know […]
Being perceived as a leader is the essence of leadership presence. While most of my coaching focuses on helping leaders enhance their presence in face-to-face encounters, I also realize that a different set of skills is required for projecting leadership presence when communicating virtually. Communication mediums run a spectrum from “lean” to “rich.” A lean medium […]
Effective leadership depends on the ability to inspire, influence, and positively impact people. You already know that. In preparing for an important meeting – with your staff, leadership team, or clients – you concentrate on what to say, memorize crucial points, and rehearse your presentation so that you will come across as credible and convincing.
