Until recently, I would often quote executive presence without being able to define it. Like many, I understood what the term signified but struggled to describe it in conversation. However, after doing some homework, I can now explain executive presence in greater measure.
As Jody and I discuss in this episode, executive presence is the sum of credibility and relatability, a fusion of expert learning, listening, and communicating. To carry this leadership torch, one doesn’t have to work in an executive role. Contrarily, as long as one is consistent in researching, networking, and capturing challenging concepts in laymen’s terms, anyone can exercise executive presence. As long as you know what you’re talking about and can convey the knowledge coherently, you can influence people’s thinking. That’s what carrying executive presence is all about.
