Do You Have Executive Presence?

TalkShop job interview tipsInterviewers look for executive presence when gauging job applicants. Executive presence is the intangible quality that comes across as confidence and competence. It is the impression made based on the total package – physical appearance, bearing, communication skills, composure, intelligence, and fit.

How does one project executive presence? Can this be taught? Can one easily learn it? Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO explains, “Executive presence means having gravitas – coming across as respectable, professional, and intelligent. Towards this, she shares the following tips:

1. Stand and sit tall.

2. Cultivate an excellent command of the English language. Executive presence requires composure, quick thinking, and language skills.

3. Hone communication skills. Make full use of your abilities – listening, speaking, writing, as well as reading people ad situations.

4. Project confidence at all times and conduct yourself with grace under pressure.

5. Exhibit assertiveness in your dealings. Learn to speak up and stand your ground. Know that this is different from being aggressive, that comes across as abrasive.

Take your career plans to the next level. TalkShop, the leading training facility in Makati offers programs to help one acquire the executive presence that makes the difference.
