Executive Presence - Posted by: Matt Tinsey

Posted on July 17, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Please take a few minutes to read this excellent study on Executive Presence.  


Performance, hard work, and sponsors get top talent recognized and promoted.

But “leadership potential” isn’t enough to lever men and women into the

executive suite. Leadership roles are given to those who also look and act the

part. Center for Talent Innovation research reveals that the top jobs often elude

women and professionals of color because they lack “executive presence” (EP),

or underestimate its importance. And they’re simply not getting the guidance

they need to acquire it.

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Thanks!|

"Executive Presence" is a powerful asset, neither universally demonstrated nor possessed by those in positions of leadership. On first glance it conveys a demonstration of considerable credibility, power, and self-confidence from those exuding it.

I strongly endorse the notion of presence being an essential component of an effective leader, but I differ in its importance relative to other critical traits. I believe the majority of us are familiar with individuals who routinely and effectively demonstrate an "executive presence", yet for some reason never seem to remain with any one organization for more than 2 - 3 years. These individuals are respected and highly skilled communicators, often possessing incredible vision, but for some reason never seem to remain anywhere long enough to deliver sought outcomes.

I would suggest this is because of a lack of "know-how". In the short term "executive presence" may be enough to get one's foot in the door initially and to provide a period of time within which to demonstrate competency and effectiveness, it is "know-how" and performance which allows an individual to continue in a position of leadership over the long term. Ram Charan describes "know-how" as one of the eight essential skills which separates people who perform from those who don't. At some point, regardless of the culture one must be able to walk the walk, as well as talk the talk.
