Executive Presence and Presentation Skills
Effective leaders understand that at a certain level, it’s not about reporting routine information or sharing specialized technical knowledge; it’s about engaging the hearts and minds of others. Leaders with presence “show up” in ways that are more engaging, more confident, and more persuasive. They consciously manage their personal brand to build loyalty and followership, and recognize that effective communication is their “presence in action.” Using proven tools and techniques, participants will create a baseline of understanding regarding how their presence is perceived by others, and set specific goals for the professional image they want to convey. They will make the connection between leadership and presence and recognize the business impact of effective presence. This program is intended for higher-level leaders and managers who are expected to deliver presentations that inform and inspire others. Call for details.
Presentation and Communication Skills
What makes a presentation smooth, professional and memorable? Is it possible to control nervousness? How does a presenter know that their communication hits the target successfully? This proven and highly experiential program helps participants develop clear messages in less time, target areas for improvement in content and delivery, and engage audiences. The skills and techniques can be applied to formal and informal presentations as well as day-to-day communication. Participants are video-recorded for their own use and continued learning.

What obstacles prevent managers from giving the feedback that they want to give and their employees want and need to hear? In this enlightening and interactive program, Heads Up will guide managers through the coaching process, analyze performance challenges, and prepare for productive performance conversations. Customized case studies can be used that reflect each organization’s reality. Call for details.
Engaging Across the Miles: How to Use Your Virtual Presence to Improve Results
A new Webinar created and delivered by Lisa Parker
Building and demonstrating excellent professional presence takes study and practice. However, some situations challenge our presence more than others, including unproductive conference calls and virtual meetings. This webinar focuses on actions and behaviors that can enhance or detract from professional presence when participating remotely. This engaging program benefits associates at all levels who must interact with others without the benefit of face-to-face. Program design can include participation through real-time participant polling, a monitored chat box, and open phone lines for Q&A at the end of the program. In our virtual world, “showing up” includes establishing one’s presence during virtual meetings. Call for details.
