Executive Presence is critical to one’s career progression and success, so it has been studied and documented in great detail. There are thousands of books, articles, blogs, videos, and training programs available on the subject. Unfortunately, this existing information significantly misses the mark by either over-diluting the topic into bite-size pieces or sending the learner on their way with no self-discovery or roadmap for improvement.

This course, Executive Presence for Professional Success, avoids both of those pitfalls by taking a holistic approach to the subject matter, providing the learner with individual feedback on their existing level of Executive Presence, and helping them create a strategic plan for actual improvement. These objectives are accomplished through a blended learning approach that includes instructor-led workshops, individual assessments, and workbook learning, delivered in a course that is spread over four weeks.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to define Executive Presence, understand your own level of Executive Presence, and build a roadmap to improve your Executive Presence.
