Presence Is A Key to Executive Leadership

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”  Maya Angelou, author and poet (1928-2014)
This week we had the privilege of hearing Dr. Elizabeth Fried speak to us about Executive Presence and how much of an effect it has on our ability to be influential, powerful and respected leaders.  She quoted Maya Angelou, and I think the message resounded with the amazing leaders who were in the room. What I also took away is the validation it gave to these leaders of industry that they are able to accomplish great things by utilizing  positive leadership skills vs. leading through the old command and control methods of leadership.
