Leadership Command Presence I: Building Acceptance & Credibility while Communicating Influentially
Leadership Command Presence is learnable. It’s a magnetism, a power, the ability to influence,
credibility given to ones’ words and actions, and the ability to get people to feel a personal connection
with you. No one is born a leader. Leadership Presence is best learned through modeling leaders who
have an exceptional presence.
A person with leadership presence can captivate people to listen when they speak. Their
recommendations are given consideration because this leader can get people to trust them
and believe in them. Presence gets people to feel like a partner when working with you and gives
credibility and likeability to you and your role.
Part of presence is being inspiring, composed, credible, influential, self-confident, and a good
communicator—yet there’s much more. During this program participants will refine their “Presence” to
more rapidly build their credibility, they will learn skills of persuasiveness, they will know how to deepen
the interpersonal connection with others and they will become better at skillfully managing conflicts.
