Executive presence is often considered a critical leadership factor. However, articulating the specific behaviors can seem mysterious and vague. Consequently, leaders receive feedback without clear direction of how to connect specific actions to business objectives. When asked for clarification, stakeholders frequently equate presence with appearance and presentation skills, or such words as “charisma” and “gravitas”. While these factors are important, they make up only a small piece of the puzzle that helps leaders sustain goal-directed action in an organization.
We are pleased to offer this series of online webinars, using The Bates Executive Presence Index,™ to explore executive presence at a deeper level. Through extensive research in leadership, communications, psychology, and social action theories and literature, executive presence has been clarified as a three-dimensional model of character, substance, and style. Within these dimensions are 15 distinct facets that are proven to make up a leader’s overall presence and level of influence.
In addition to the multi-rater feedback assessment, including a comprehensive feedback report with data on ratings broken down by rater category and at the item-level, participants receive individual professional support to review, interpret, and apply feedback reports. Individual 1:1 coaching with our professional certified coach includes an orientation call, the multi-rater assessment, report interpretation and 12 one-hour coaching sessions during a six-month period.
