“…and the long and short of it is?”
Sometimes, we feel compelled to prove how much research we’ve done, how much credibility we have and how thorough we’ve been by sharing every little detail. Problem is, when we do that, people tune out, and we lose the ability to influence.
Leaders are expected to be declarative and direct. So, how do you do that?
Be brief, be bright and be gone.
This tip resonated so well in my one-on-one coaching sessions that I wanted to share it with all of you as you focus on your leadership presence.
Just today, we launched a brand new program that’s all about leadership presence. It’s called Leadership Presence for Women. We co-created it with several trusted clients and partners to help rising leaders and high potentials stand out with increased confidence and credibility. While the tips, like the one above, are applicable to men, too, the women-only course discusses challenges and biases that are unique to women. After all, as a recent New York Times article pointed out, Fortune 500 companies have more CEOs named James than CEOs who are women.
Join us in empowering women to get there.
Nobody changes the status quo alone. Whether your team, your mentees, or even you are looking to fast-track communication skills and leadership presence, check it out and let us know what you think!
