How strong is your executive presence?

Do you have it? Many executives don’t. The ‘it,’ is Executive Presence.

Executive presence is often the difference between managers, and leaders. We know executive presence, when we experience it. In command of the room, soft-spoken but firm, a great listener but also ready to make their own point,
polished but not showy -- these are the qualities we all look for in great executives.

But are these seemingly soft and elusive capabilities genetic, or can they be learned? The answer is yes, they can be learned. We found out how at this Vanguard Dialogue on Executive Presence.

Paul Hastings, Chair of BIO and CEO and Chairman of NKarta Therapeutics, explored these topics with us.

Helping to lead the discussion was Joe Kwon, author of “Unlock Your Executive Presence: Feel Like a Boss”.
