Executive presence matters. When 400 CEOs were asked how they choose next-level leaders, 89% of them said they looked for one critical trait-executive presence. This quality is crucial for professional success. In Executive Presence, Joel Garfinkle shows you how to step into your power, convey confidence, and lead with conviction. As you rise in your organization, your executive presence must keep pace with your growth. The higher the stakes, the more you need that power and presence. Using extensive original research gleaned from studying executive presence for more than 15 years, Joel has uncovered the 9 essential qualities of executive presence. His 3x3 Executive Presence Model doesn't just explain executive presence for the modern leader-it walks you step by step through exercises and strategies for cultivating each essential element. Methodically explaining how to master each one, he equips you with a personalized plan for growth, demystifies what executive presence is, and debunks misconceptions that hold you back. This book provides the blueprint for how to master 3 key executive presence domains. 1. Radiate gravitas. 2. Act with authority. 3. Express yourself fully. In Executive Presence, you'll learn how to: - Radiate the commanding, self-assured presence of a high-level leader. - Bring power, conviction, and a strong point of view to your presentations. - Move from passivity and self-doubt to self-assurance and bold decision-making. - Exude a professional magnetism that influences others at every level. - Cultivate and leverage charisma in all your interactions. - Communicate in a clear, crisp, and concise way. Maybe you've come across the term "executive presence" in HBR, but you couldn't adequately define it-let alone begin to grow it. This book will change that. As you delve into the lessons from Executive Presence, you'll join top-ranking organizational leaders who know how to influence others and drive extraordinary results. Whether you're a rising star or CEO, Executive Presence will guide you in leading a high-performing team. Moving from passivity and self-doubt to self-assurance and bold decision-making, you'll become the high-impact leader who propels your organization forward. Executive Presence is for women, people of color, and other employees from marginalized groups who are too often underappreciated, which causes companies to miss out on their full range of talent. By cultivating executive presence, women and any overlooked employees can smash through the glass ceiling and gain the recognition they deserve. If you're in one of these demographics, growing your executive presence will allow you to leap over the barriers you may encounter in your career. What's the key differentiator between this Executive Presence book and its competitors (Sylvia Ann Hewlett's Executive Presence: The Missing Link Between Merit and Success, Paul Aldo's Understanding Executive Presence, Debra A. Benton's Executive Presence for the Modern Leader, and Harrison Monarth's Executive Presence, Second Edition)? The 3x3 Executive Presence Model provides a clear, structured blueprint for developing the most important facets of executive presence. Learn about the 3 domains - gravitas, authority, and expression - that act as the foundational pillars holding up the 9 executive presence competencies.

Despite efforts to increase diversity within Fortune 500 companies and larger numbers of highly motivated and educated women in the workforce, women remain vastly under-represented at the highest levels of corporate leadership. Only about 15 percent of women hold senior executive positions, and about 17 percent are represented on corporate boards; worldwide, only 3–4 percent of CEOs are women. These statistics are in spite of the fact that many companies are actively seeking to take advantage of the financial boost that gender balance at the corporate level brings: Companies that have women in leadership roles are showing higher performance in various measures of profitability, such as revenues, assets, and stockholder value. How can qualified women leaders overcome the myriad longstanding hurdles of the corporate environment and reach the top? Coauthored by executive coaches to some of corporate America's most notable leaders, this practical, research- and experience-based guide identifies the various barriers that block women from reaching positions of corporate leadership and offers readers specific strategies and approaches that they can utilize to advance themselves into the positions they want—and apply their talents and abilities at the very top. The chapters address very specific challenges for women in the business world, such as strengthening and leveraging their closest connections, including those with their mentors and their sponsors; understanding how "performance" means more than doing their jobs well; garnering positive attention and recognition for their efforts and results; and getting honest, practical feedback that will serve to advance their careers.

Unlocking the Source for True Leadership Too many people, men and women alike, have bought into a notion of leadership that exclusively emphasizes traditionally “masculine” qualities: hierarchical, militaristic, win-at-all-costs. The result has been corruption, environmental degradation, social breakdown, stress, depression, and a host of other serious problems. Nilima Bhat and Raj Sisodia show us a more balanced way, an archetype of leadership that is generative, cooperative, creative, inclusive, and empathetic. While these are traditionally regarded as “feminine” qualities, we all have them. In the Indian yogic tradition they're symbolized by Shakti, the source that powers all life. Through exercises and inspirational examples, Bhat and Sisodia show how to access this infinite energy and lead with your whole self. Male or female, leaders who understand and practice Shakti Leadership act from a consciousness of life-giving caring, creativity, and sustainability to achieve self-mastery internally and be of selfless service to the world.

Are you “leadership material?” More importantly, do others perceive you to be? Sylvia Ann Hewlett, a noted expert on workplace power and influence, shows you how to identify and embody the Executive Presence (EP) that you need to succeed. You can have the experience and qualifications of a leader, but without executive presence, you won't advance. EP is an amalgam of qualities that true leaders exude, a presence that telegraphs you're in charge or deserve to be. Articulating those qualities isn't easy, however. Based on a nationwide survey of college graduates working across a range of sectors and occupations, Sylvia Hewlett and the Center for Talent Innovation discovered that EP is a dynamic, cohesive mix of appearance, communication, and gravitas. While these elements are not equal, to have true EP, you must know how to use all of them to your advantage. Filled with eye-opening insights, analysis, and practical advice for both men and women, mixed with illustrative examples from executives learning to use the EP, Executive Presence will help you make the leap from working like an executive to feeling like an executive.
