Most people think that presence is something you are just born with. Not true. Presence is actually a set of skills both internal and external that virtually anyone can develop and improve. Presence impacts how you show up, how you connect and how you speak. However, it’s not easy to make these improvements. It requires giving up some bad habits and changing some behaviors. But the investment is worth it if you want to build trust and credibility and strengthen your relationships to enhance collaboration. Bottom line, developing presence will make you a more effective leader.
