Every result starts with an action, taking a step with an end in mind.
Leaders with Presence energise people to be in action, to produce exceptional results with maximal clarity, alignment, and impact.
All too often in our fast paced world, the pressures from inside ourselves and from external circumstances get in the way of great people producing astounding results. Energy gets dissipated through lack of alignment, conflicting intention and mixed messages. Habit, reactive patterns, status and control can get in the way.
Leaders with Presence pull together the disparate forces of individuals, groups and agencies, so the right people take the right step in a timely and appropriate way to maximise efficiency and productivity.
Presence equips people in positions of power to be optimally prepared for, and able to adapt to, changes and challenges, enabling them to provide dynamic and effective leadership.
Presence means people show up, connected to who they are, to others, and to the bigger picture.
Presence brings confidence, calm, natural authority, and the ability to intelligently self-regulate emotions.
For the business as a whole this means:
• Purposeful meetings • Clear communication • Intelligent focused decisions • Future-fit leadership • Alignment around common values and purpose • Impactful relationships across boundaries, professional and cultural • Ownership, buy-in and new possibilities for impactful action • Trust, respect and transparency
In this book, we bring you the what, the why, and the how of leading with Presence. We break it down so you can master presence for yourself, and pass this essential competency of leadership on to others.
