MESSAGE FROM JOEL

Please forward this newsletter about developing your executive presence to your family, friends, and coworkers.

To subscribe to Fulfillment@Work, click here.

I've been living out of a suitcase this month, making a dozen presentations to Marriott Hotel and Ritz-Carlton executives in Boston, Miami and Arizona.

I talked to them about the single-most influential factor in getting ahead in an organization. It isn't luck, hard work, educational background, determination or sheer talent. It's executive presence.

In the article below I point out the five key characteristics of leaders who personify executive presence. For you Marriott folks who are new subscribers to this newsletter, consider this article a "refresher course" on what we talked about during our sessions together.

I'd like to encourage you, along with my long-term subscribers, to choose at least one of these traits and develop an action plan for incorporating it in your day-to-day work routine. Then, next week, choose another. And, then, another. Before long, these traits will become second nature to you. They will become part of who you are and how others perceive you.

You'll find that - if I may be so bold as to borrow from Marriott's marketing slogan - when you have executive presence, you'll have "everything you need to perform at your best."

All the best, Joel

FEATURE ARTICLE

Executive Presence

From all my work with executive coaching clients these are the top characteristics that have made the best so successful. As I describe these traits, ask yourself: where do I stand? What do I do well? What needs improvement?

If you have executive presence you have an aura or magnetism or charisma that draws others to you. You're a compelling force inside your organization or work group. When you speak, people listen, feel inspired and uplifted. You convey confidence, are respected as an authority, know how to create impact, provide value and know how to get noticed?

Think about your peers, your bosses, other executive leaders, famous people and your friends, who has EP? Who doesn't? Executive presence is your secret to your success. Exploit your potential. Your own greatness. It all comes from executive presence.

You can cultivate executive presence through training and practice. You'll know you're making progress when you:

1. See the Big Picture.

You're a strategic, "big picture" thinker who doesn't become mired down in tactics. You think "outside the cubical" and take a whole company perspective when solving problems or seeking new opportunities. You're able to communicate in financial terms to show your worth where it matters most - the company's bottom line.

2. Are Willing to Take Risks.

You capitalize on ambiguity and change. Leaders are revealed and careers are made for those able to navigate stormy seas. You challenge yourself and stretch your capabilities. You're able to conquer self-doubt and break through self-imposed limitations by seeking out opportunities to move beyond your comfort zone.

3. Develop Strong Interpersonal Skills.

You build confidence, trust and credibility by speaking clearly and persuasively. You think and act more like a leader than a manager. As a leader, you'll inspire and motivate others by advocating what's best for the organization, not just your work group. And, when you're successful, you're willing to share the limelight with others.

4. Focus on the Things that Matter Most.

You improve your productivity, influence and reputation for high-level achievement when you focus on the things that matter most. Not only will you be a peak performer, you'll maintain a healthy balance in your life.

5. Constantly Seek to Improve Yourself.

You find personal fulfillment and professional success by capitalizing on your strengths and minimizing your mistakes. You encourage feedback to demonstrate your passion for self-development and desire to contribute to your company's success. You increase your growth potential by investing in the most important asset you possess - yourself.

Developing your executive presence may seem like a daunting task. There is a lot of work involved, but it's the kind of work that will have far-reaching, long-lasting benefits. You will become more motivated, you'll learn how recognize and promote your own value and you'll develop a meaningful and effective career plan. These are all things you can accomplish on your way to becoming a better leader.

 QUOTES OF THE WEEK

"Throw away those books and cassettes on inspirational leadership. Send those consultants packing. Know your job, set a good example for the people under you and put results over politics. That's all the charisma you'll really need to succeed."

~ Dyan Machan

 

"Management works in the system; Leadership works on the system."

~ Stephen R. Covey

 

"Act impeccably! Perform every act as if it were the only think in the world that mattered... It's the old Zen principle - you put your whole soul and being and life into the act you're performing. In Zen archery your entire being wills the arrow into the bull's eye with an invisible force. It's not a question of winning or even caring, it's making the everyday acts we all perform important to ourselves."

~ Michael Korda
