Leadership Presence

A Humphrey Group program offered by The Niagara Institute


Leadership Presence™ will provide participants with an opportunity to gain a strong, confident presence—that elusive quality that creates instant credibility and trust. It is a quality all leaders need if they are to inspire and influence. This program will show you how to hold the room with a leadership presence that involves strong gestures, a powerful stance, an expressive voice, and a grounded style known as “gravitas.” You will develop your own personal style and authentic charisma. You will discover how to perform your leadership role with a compelling presence that engages others through listening techniques, tone and political savvy. These skills are necessary for leaders today.

This program is taught by Facilitators who have worked extensively with leaders as well as having background in theatre. Small group workshops, with a ratio of 7 participants to one Facilitator, will provide for extensive feedback and one-on-one coaching for all participants.
