When you think of executive presence, what pops into your mind? Perfectly polished people? Cleverly choreographed gestures to match skillfully scripted words? Adeptly accessorized attire to reflect the “right” image?
If that’s what you’re looking for, you’re on the wrong page.
You’ve learned the “right” moves, said the “right” words and bought the “right” clothes. You’ve worked hard to “fit the mold” of who you are supposed to be in your professional role, but you’re still missing the mark. You almost have presence, but not quite.
