Publisher's Summary

Everyone recognizes leaders with "presence". They stand out for their seemingly innate ability to command attention and inspire commitment. But what is this secret quality they exude, exactly?

Executive and CEO coach Kristi Hedges demystifies this elusive trait, revealing that leadership presence is the intersection of outward influencing skills and internal mental conditioning. Using her I-Presence model, the author shows how anyone - regardless of position or personality - can strengthen their impact. Listeners will learn how to build trust as the foundation for leadership, eschew perfectionism for authenticity, banish limiting thoughts and behaviors, and galvanize their team through visionary, inspiring communications. Stellar technical knowledge, a strong work ethic, excellent presentation skills-none of these tangible traits puts people on the career fast track as readily as a compelling presence. Filled with profiles of leaders with powerful presence and the latest neuroleadership research translated into actionable habits, this authoritative guide puts a little-understood, but potentially game-changing, tool within everyone's reach.

    "Useful Information, Robotic Presentation"
    Would you listen to The Power of Presence again? Why?

    No, but I would read it. I read an essay by Hedges on Forbes and immediately downloaded the audiobook. But as useful as the information is, the presentation was robotic and lobotomized. It didn't feel authentic - sort of like having June Cleaver read a book to you. The reader was peppy and bright, but it sounded like she could have been reading anything, rather than a book about how women can work to improve their presence. A book about presence deserves a reader who sounds passionate about the subject.

    "Great content, terrible narration"
    Where does The Power of Presence rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed the content in the audiobook and I have taken time to play back some of the areas where I book marked to do the exercises. This has helped me get more out of it.


    What didn’t you like about Karen Saltus’s performance?

    I really did not like her voice or the way she read the book at all. Her register was too high, her inflections were uninteresting and her voice did not give any weight to the content where it was needed. Her voice was VERY distracting and made it VERY hard to get through the book. I would recommend reading this book instead of listening to the audiobook.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I wouldn't make this into a film.


    Any additional comments?

    Be prepared to go back and review the content with pen and paper. Do the exercises.

    "Solid foundation for building executive presence"

    This audio book is about creating a compelling presence in the workplace or at home with authenticity and integrity as the foundation. I was encouraged to review my core values and who I wanted to be perceived as, and make sure the two were aligned. From there the other guidelines for effectiveness follows. Highly recommended.
