Publisher's Summary

Within the qualities of effective leadership lies the more elusive concept of executive presence. Some define it as an aura; others say it is swagger and the ability to command a room. Still others say it is authenticity and personal confidence. Most often, it is the deciding factor in top-level promotions.

The Hidden Factor defines what executive presence really is, how you get it, and how it can be leveraged to define a leader better than any other quality being measured. Executive presence has always existed, but in recent years, it has resurfaced as a hot topic among C-Suite executives, succession planners, and development officers. It is one of the top qualities evaluated in potential leaders and is often the missing component that limits promotion.

Through surveys and in-depth interviews with over 400 executives, we validated a range of presence attributes and the impact of those attributes in corporate settings. The interviews offered access to top executive's stories and their thoughts on presence across their careers. Their insights combined with our coaching expertise offer an in-depth look at the concept of presence and your ability to use this hidden factor to get ahead in any organization.

    Story
    "Contains coachable skills tips"
    If you could sum up The Hidden Factor: Executive Presence in three words, what would they be?

    Coachable skills first


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that the book contains advice that can be immediately implemented.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Chapter 19 "For Women Only" touched a chord with me because - of course - I have done what she advises women not to do.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it is an easy read. You might want to listen a second time and take notes.
