Do You Have Executive Presence?

Executive presence is the single most important trait to gaining the confidence of others, raising your profile, expanding your influence and getting ahead at work. Almost all successful business
leaders have it. Do you? Find out by taking Joel’s exclusive 16-point Executive Presence Assessment. Your responses will be submitted to the Joel for evaluation and recommendation as to the best coaching program.

This assessment gives you a clear understanding of your areas of strengths and weakness so you can become a more confident and powerful business leader.
