Presence is the corporate "it" factor.  It’s directly linked to your ability to get noticed, forge trusting relationships, and get others on board with your agenda. In increasingly distributed companies, managers are often left alone to translate a vision and galvanize cross-functional teams.

Influence is the primary means for getting work done.

The Wall Street Journal recently weighed in, stating that “presence plays an increasingly important role as companies grapple with a weak recovery and fewer management layers.”

Presence is an amorphous concept with a defined impact in our success. We're experts at reading others' presence, but it's remarkably hard to understand and shape our own without the right approach.

The good news is that anyone can strengthen their presence in a way that's authentic, natural, and influential whether they're an introvert, extrovert, aspiring or seasoned leader.

In this webcast, you'll discover what skills are needed to inspire and motivate by focusing on the three core aspects of presence:

  1. Intentional: Determine the type of presence you want and the values you want to convey, and how they match up with the way people currently perceive you. 
  2. Individual: Understand how to build relationships that foster trust, and that drive business, loyalty, and career success. 
  3. Inspirational: Learn what the master communicators do to inspire others, including using powerful language, motivating through change, and presenting to audiences effectively.
