Using her I-Presence model, the author shows how anyone-regardless of position or personality-can strengthen their impact.

Publisher's Summary

Everyone recognizes leaders with "presence". They stand out for their seemingly innate ability to command attention and inspire commitment. But what is this secret quality they exude, exactly?

Executive and CEO coach Kristi Hedges demystifies this elusive trait, revealing that leadership presence is the intersection of outward influencing skills and internal mental conditioning. Using her I-Presence model, the author shows how anyone - regardless of position or personality - can strengthen their impact. Listeners will learn how to build trust as the foundation for leadership, eschew perfectionism for authenticity, banish limiting thoughts and behaviors, and galvanize their team through visionary, inspiring communications. Stellar technical knowledge, a strong work ethic, excellent presentation skills-none of these tangible traits puts people on the career fast track as readily as a compelling presence. Filled with profiles of leaders with powerful presence and the latest neuroleadership research translated into actionable habits, this authoritative guide puts a little-understood, but potentially game-changing, tool within everyone's reach.

    "Useful Information, Robotic Presentation"
    Would you listen to The Power of Presence again? Why?

    No, but I would read it. I read an essay by Hedges on Forbes and immediately downloaded the audiobook. But as useful as the information is, the presentation was robotic and lobotomized. It didn't feel authentic - sort of like having June Cleaver read a book to you. The reader was peppy and bright, but it sounded like she could have been reading anything, rather than a book about how women can work to improve their presence. A book about presence deserves a reader who sounds passionate about the subject.
