Experts agree that Executive Presence is far more than leadership abilities.
Yes, the ability to lead is a component. Communication is also a significant skill set and the facility for powerful, interpersonal engagement is pivotal. Executive Presence is clearly multi-faceted.
The New York-based think tank, Center for Talent Innovation (CTI), established a task force to investigate Executive Presence. Its focus was to provide insights into how organizations could leverage their talent through Executive Presence. The 75 global corporations and organizations involved in the task force operate in 190 countries around the world, comprising four million employees. The CTI task force’s report, published in 2012, captures the essence of why Executive Presence is so critical:
“Performance, hard work, and sponsors get top talent recognized and promoted. But ‘leadership potential’ isn’t enough to lever men and women into the executive suite. Leadership roles are given to those who also act the part.”
There is no question that ability, talent and skills count BUT Executive
Presence plays a key role in assuring people achieve their full potential. The goal of EP is not a singular, stellar move up the career ladder but continuous, upward mobility.
As the CTI report states: “Executive Presence alone won’t get you promoted
… but its absence will impede your progress.”
The extraordinary thing about EP is its accessibility. In fact, it’s attainable to everyone with the will to succeed.
Executive Presence is neither exclusive nor elusive.™
