Below Is The List Of Course Content Of Our Creating A Powerful Executive Presence Training Course
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 1: Managing Your First Impression
Do you instantly command attention and admiration when you enter a room? If not, do not fret. In this course, we will teach core leadership skills, how to build credibility, developing your impression, enhancing your networking skills, and increasing your effectiveness to communicate.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 2: Dressing For Success
People first see how you look. They will form their opinion based on your appearance, level of confidence – even before you have a chance to say anything. Thus, it is imperative that the executive image you convey needs to support the type of work you do, and not to betray it.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 3: The Professional Handshake
Once you have made a positive first impression, it is essential to follow it through. During the critical first few minutes of a new relationship, a handshake is usually the only body contact between two people. It can communicate warmth, a genuine concern for the other person, and an image of either strength or gentleness. It can also communicate indifference and weakness. Developing a professional handshake is perhaps one of the most valuable business skills you can ever cultivate.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 4: Remembering Names & Faces
There are several techniques for remembering people’s names, and the key is to use whatever works for you. No method works for every situation. Some works in some instances (like when you also get a business card) but not in others (especially if you are in more casual surroundings). Most people love to hear their name, and when someone new to us remembers our name, it makes us pay attention.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 5: Building Trust and Credibility
We have probably all worked with people (including leaders and executives) that we did not respect. No matter how long we worked with them, and no matter how great our results were, there was something about them which stopped us from trusting them. This lack of respect leads to dysfunctional teams, where people are afraid of repercussions. When people work well with one another, and respect one another, trust is built.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 6: Active Listening Skills
Active listening requires you to take the perspective of the speaker. Doing this allows you to understand where the speaker is coming from, and gives a better context to what the speaker is saying.
It requires a patient attitude, and that does not assume one knows already, that wants to listen for shared understanding. It is not the same as physically hearing.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 7: Asking Open and Closed Questions
Effective communication involves a good deal of time asking questions. Unfortunately, we often do not have the right technique in asking the right questions, and pay little attention to it. We often have difficulty to do just that. There is a technique to ask open and closed questions. One way is to be comfortable with small talk and easing yourself into the conversation at hand.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 8: Probing Techniques
When we do not get enough information by using open-ended questions, we can use probes to expand the conversation. Here are a few probing techniques that you can use to get more information from people and build relationships.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 9: Managing Your Body Language
Our bodies, especially our faces, do a lot of the talking for us. When you are having conversations, pay attention to what your body is saying and ensure that it is congruent with your words. When speaking with others, do you lean forward slightly to indicate that you are listening to them? Do you make the mistake of rolling your eyes, even if you do not believe what you are hearing?
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 10: Speaking with Impact
In this part we shall learn elements of what are taught in a broadcasting school. What about being a voice for cartoons or reading audiobooks? These speakers have learned how to control their voices in order to capture the attention of a listener. By paying close attention to the following elements of voice, you will see the potential for making changes to your voice and becoming a stronger, more confident speaker.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 11: Five Points for Powerful Presentation
It can be hard to remember to cover all of the bases while you are speaking, mainly if you are put on the spot. The five S approach will work for any size presentation. If you are asked a question during an event, you can use this approach to provide a quick, complete answer. If you are putting on a large presentation at a conference, you can use this approach as a framework. Either way, it will ensure that you tell the audience what they want to know and what they need to know.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 12: Maintaining Your Impression
Having good manners does not just mean you make a positive impression; they are also suitable for business. Even if you wish to have an informal presence, people still care about social skills and manners (even if they do not come out and say so). Rules about which fork to use for the salad, or not talking with food in your mouth, are examples of good manners. Etiquette, however, takes the discussion about manners to a higher level.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 13: Networking
Networking is an effective way for you to build your image and reputation. However, building a network can be a difficult thing for many people. If you are inhibited at all, the idea of introducing yourself to people can be daunting. If you are outgoing, people may have the impression that you want to meet them to further your career or grow your business. The real purpose of networking, however, is that you bring something helpful to them (not you specifically) without expecting something directly in return.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 14: Delivering Effective Feedback
By definition, useful feedback must contribute to an improvement in future performance. The meeting itself gives the stage to address expectations, outcomes, motivation, and how to succeed; even if it may not affect directly to a desired level of performance. It also shows others that you care and are willing to help them achieve their goals – which means that you, in turn, may be able to rely on their support one day.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 15: Motivational Techniques
Motivation is a tricky subject. As leaders, we used to talk in terms that said the only way to get a person to do something was to make them want to do it in order to get something they want or avoid something they do not want. In other words, we would pay them or punish them. This discussion included terms of managing people with a whip, a carrot, and a plant.
Executive Presence Training Course – Part 16: Coaching Others To Success
Coaching involves having conversations that help people to improve their skills, attain their goals, and reach success. Coaching is a way of expressing the truth, confronting severe issues, and is centred around language that inspires. It is usually one on one, although there is team coaching going on now too. Coaching skills can help others see you as a strong, successful executive leader.
