Authentic Leadership Presence

The idea of authentic presence goes beyond technical skills and leadership competencies. It’s about knowing how to leverage the power of reputation and perception – and be seen as a leader by others. Wielding influence takes more than just a job title – It requires the ability to show up and be heard.

Authentic Leadership Presence™ links the mastery of authentic presence to your company’s values and culture. For women, this program provides the strategies to personally define and demonstrate authentic leadership. For companies, it accelerates career development and improves retention of top female talent.
