Improve your leadership presence!

You can be in a room full of participants wearing expensive suits.

Dress for Success and Executive Image Training can help you project yourself. But you cannot only wear and project presence. You must be present.

To develop your leadership presence, you have to unlearn pretense.

I have often heard experts say that you “fake it ’til you make it”. They want you to pretend that you are someone else because they do not think highly of you (and maybe of themselves too). I suspect that they are faking themselves before you too.

Stop pretending. Make real connections. Help everyone feel your leadership.

You can lead better.
