Harrison MonarthExecutive Presence – Develop confidence, competence and influence beyond formal authority
Thursday, June 13th13:00 EST
How do others perceive you? The fact is, no matter what you are trying to achieve, the answer to that question will dictate your level of success.
We live in a reputation economy. And while intelligence, expertise and hard work are important, they’re not nearly enough to get ahead. When you want to be seen as a mature and confident leader, influencing across organizational levels, building strong relationships, and mobilizing the right people to tackle complex challenges, you need executive presence.
In fact, one survey showed 89% of a sample of nearly 400 CEOs and corporate executives saying executive presence helps people get ahead, with 78% saying that limited executive presence can hold someone back.
What can we as coaches do to help aspiring leaders develop the characteristics of a strong executive presence?
Based on his extensive work with thousands of senior executives, ongoing research in the behavioral science and two decades of experience coaching leaders from the Fortune 500 on Executive Presence, Harrison Monarth will share key insights from the upcoming second edition of his bestselling book, Executive Presence—The Art of Commanding Respect Like a CEO (McGraw-Hill 2019).
Harrison will identify the specific personality traits, skills and behaviors that are commonly associated with executive presence in organizations. He’ll explain how he’s helped coaching clients develop strategic self-awareness around these characteristics and embark on building a powerful personal brand that conveys executive presence when it matters most.
In a lively fast-paced session, Harrison will illustrate how easily we create perceptions that detract from our executive presence, how science-backed emotion regulation strategies can help us convey calm and think clearly under pressure and which executive presence characteristics matter more in initial impressions, versus those that matter more over the long term, for sustained executive presence.
In the full summit, Harrison will share various case studies and coaching tips, techniques and strategies he’s used successfully to help his coaching clients develop key executive presence behaviors that enable them to wield positive influence at the highest organizational levels. He’ll also point out specific pitfalls of developing a dark executive presence and how to guard against those.
