12:30 PM – 1:15PM                Emerging Leaders Program Luncheon and Networking

1:15 PM – 1:30PM                  Welcome, Notices, Introductions – Julie Wohlstein, MAS CSFS

1:30 PM – 2:30 PM                “Executive Presence:  The Key to Earning Your Seat at the                                                         Table”

Executive presence: What is it? Do you have it? If not, how do you get it? This workshop outlines the components of executive presence and provides practical activities and resources to help emerging leaders develop the gravitas to effectively influence and lead others.

Elizabeth Fried is an executive coach. As such, she rarely finds that emerging leaders lack external technical/business skills. If there is an issue, more often than not, they lack the internal confidence and accompanying skillset for the subtleties required to project the gravitas of an influential leader. Her experience suggests you may suffer similarly. 

While you typically have all the technical/business skills to help your management team identify critical initiatives, you may often struggle with effectively influencing them to invest in recommended actions. You may have difficulty fully articulating the organizational impact of the project to gain the requisite support, approval, or funding. Why? Perhaps you lack executive presence. If you want to elevate your role to one who contributes to the shape of organizational strategy, products or services, executive presence is a critical competency.  

Presented by:   Dr. N. Elizabeth Fried
