10 Things You Need to Ask Yourself About Your Personal Executive Presence 

10 Things You Need to Ask Yourself About Your Personal Executive Presence 

executive presence-group

To encourage everyone with a vested interest in self-determination, we’ve compiled this questionnaire.

We’re often asked if there’s a starting point. Questions typically run the gamut from: “How do I know if I have IT?” – to – “What if I think I have EP but can’t be sure, how do I measure it?”

  1. Do I consistently project a professional image at business functions?
  2. Do I converse easily with diverse groups of individuals and move from introductions to networking and making connections?
  3. Do I make a memorable First Impression when I’m introduced?
  4. Do I effectively use my appearance and clothing to achieve the greatest effect?
  5. Do I present business materials in an effective and persuasive way to potential clients or individual customers, large and small groups?
  6. Do people want to meet me and gravitate toward me when I enter a room?
  7. Do I utilize the appropriate guidelines of electronic and virtual communication?
  8. Do I understand the protocols of being either host or guest at business meals, anywhere and with anyone?
  9. Do I understand Body Language – both the silent signals I read in others and send, myself?
  10. Do I optimize social opportunities to mingle and interact with people I’m meeting for the first time?

Chances are, you probably need help in a couple of areas. Most do. Contact us for more information.

One thing’s for sure – Executive Presence is far more than just looking the part.
