Build a Stand Out Leadership Presence for 2022

How can you build your leadership presence in 2022? How can you get people to see you as leadership material this year? 

Developing your leadership presence or executive presence at work is paramount to you getting noticed and promoted into leadership. If people don’t see you as a leader, why would they ever promote you into a leadership position?

Many emerging leaders make the mistake of waiting until they interview for a promotion to start displaying their “presence” as a leader. But this is too late. Your leadership presence needs to be displayed long before you get promoted. 

It can take time to build. It starts with developing a high-level of self-confidence. You need to get clear on the value you bring to the team and company. Then you need to look at elements of your external leadership presence such as your body language and outfit. 

All of these five elements together make up your “leadership presence”. And a large part of your career success will depend on how well you have built these five elements. 

In the below video, I delve into how you can actually build this important element for your career.
