Executive Presence Summit


What is Executive Presence?

A positive first impression sets the stage for a successful leader-team relationship. This program helps newly promoted or incoming leaders build strong connections with their teams from day one. We create a supportive environment where you'll develop clear action plans together, with everyone accountable for achieving success.

You've heard the term, but can you define it? Executive presence is that intangible quality that makes a leader stand out. It's the ability to connect, influence, and inspire others. It's the confidence that commands respect and the communication skills that get things done.

At Sherpa, we believe executive presence can be learned and we've identified ten key traits that contribute to a powerful executive presence and developed a program to help you master them.
