- For Beginners
When most businesspeople try to define “executive presence,” they say, “I know it when I see it!” A formal definition of executive presence might not matter to everyone, but managers stymied in their quest for promotion need to know what to do if their bosses think they lack this crucial quality. Unable to articulate a more concrete reason for blocking your path, bosses likely think, “I can’t promote you because you’re missing a special quality, but I can’t tell you what it is.” Consultant Suzanne Bates helpfully explains the essence of executive presence, why it matters and how you can develop it. She breaks executive presence down into three “dimensions” with 15 behavioral “facets.” getAbstract recommends her insightful, practical manual as a helpful backgrounder for ambitious executives, start-up founders seeking investors and HR hiring officers wondering how to define what they know they’re seeking.
