Leadership Command Presence


A person with “presence” gives the people around them a sense of confidence and belief in them. Zig Ziglar said, “To gain loyal customers, the first thing they must buy is you!” Presence is the essential ingredient in them “buying you.”

A person with “presence” is often described as being inspiring, composed, energized, credible, influential, self confident, a good communicator - yet there is much more. “Personal presence” is the central component of the greatest leaders. No matter what job you do, the more you refine your “presence” the more rapidly you can build credibility, the more influential you can be in all interactions, the deeper the relationship connection you can make, and the more skillfully you can manage conflicts. During this training program you’ll learn the exact strategies which create “presence.”

The course meets the requirements of Government Code 19995.4(c) of 20-hours of continuing professional education biennially for all levels of supervisors in state service.
