“Great ideas don’t actually just appear to us in the shower. The more we inspire them and seed them with knowledge of the people we serve, the more likely they will turn out to be great ideas.”
Our Professional Presence is about showing up in a way that has positive impact, particularly in those high impact moments. It might surprise you to learn that our professional presence is less about control and command and much more about influence. Our presence is a quality that is unique to us and that we carry into a room. But it’s not about pretending, there are skills and signals we can develop to help us strengthen our presence both in the virtual and in-person work environments.
