In this episode, Ulrike and her guest Chloé Oestreich, leadership coach, consultant and speaker, share an impressive number of great tips on how to develop executive presence by acting in three core areas: vocal, physical, and mental.
Effective communication is not just about the message, the words, and the language – rather, it’s about a leader’s executive presence, their inner confidence, mindset and whether they have the ability to inspire and lead through their vision.
Executive presence is created on three different levels:
1 - Vocal: Our voice is over 5x more powerful than the actual words we speak. It is therefore important to become aware of our pace, volume, tonality and pitch.
2 - Physical: Our body language is even 8x more powerful than words. Women often have a tendency to fall into low-status poses. What are the poses you are taking on? Taking high-status poses, in turn, not only helps you to appear more confident it also changes the chemicals in your body and enables you to feel stronger on the inside.
3 - Mental: It is important to be clear about your intent when joining a meeting and to be present in the moment. Are you having this chaotic mind chatter when you enter a room? Then deliberately focus on the other people and start to listen carefully. This helps you not only to be more present but also to switch from an inward focus to an outward focus.
If you want to get a heap of practical tips that you can apply right away to increase your vocal, physical and mental presence, tune in to this episode now!
