Presence and Charisma

“Today, anyone who has presence, who attracts attention when he or she enters a room, is said to possess charisma . . . . Their charisma is mysterious and inexplicable, never obvious. They have unusual confidence. They have a gift—often a smoothness with language-that makes them stand out from the crowd. They express a vision.” – Robert Greene

Gravitas, charisma, or presence can be learned and honed through deliberate focus and practice of a few of your natural personality traits. Our well-validated and reliable psychological assessments will highlight these strengths and direct your attention to those you can most quickly and easily develop for your own leadership results.

What is gravitas? Few people have it; that much is for sure. Those who possess gravitas seem to be magnetic and have a dignified presence. They look as if they feel safe, their impact is disarming, and we find them trustworthy to be around. I’ve heard that they come from “good stock.” I suppose that means that those who raised this person are also of good character as well.

“The great scientist Thomas Edison knew that to raise money he had to remain in the public eye at any cost. Almost as important as the inventions themselves was how he presented them to the public and courted attention.” – Robert Greene

Focus on Your Strengths

Even if you didn’t come from “good stock” yourself these days, you can focus on and refine the essential qualities that lie within. Whether you are currently ignoring these qualities or want to become more deliberate with the use of these qualities, we’re here for you. Together, we can highlight and bring out your personal strengths. Collectively, we’ll focus on you, where you are strong, so you can more creatively lead with your strengths and know where you’ll need to be more cautious.

We’ve been providing our present clients with Zoom sessions & Coaching by  Phone throughout the COVID pandemic with great success. These sessions are both convenient & confidential. Try something new & explore one for yourself. 🙂

100% of ALL appointments are now virtual. If you’d prefer an in-person session, know that normally we also offer this alternative at all of our locations. Sanitisation and proper distancing procedures are in place for your safety and comfort. Wearing a mask is mandatory in reception and all hallway areas, but NOT in our private offices.

As an Executive coach and licensed Psychologist, I assist professionals, individual entrepreneurs, and corporate clients with interests and challenges related to personal and professional leadership. Posts reflect client concerns and actions. You don't need to be an executive to secure coaching for yourself, but you should have a degree of ambition. Strategizing on how your career or life might improve and move forward takes time for reflection, either on your own or through dialogue. Opportunity is required to reflect well upon new and detailed information regarding your strengths and weaknesses. Sound consideration leads to a strategy that produces informed action, which precedes success. Wear your strengths like a badge of honor & be cautious of areas you may tend to error in.
