Developing and improving Executive Presence

This is something that has happened to many employees: Everyone other than that person seems to be getting promoted easily. The main reason for this is that even though that employee is efficient and productive; the feedback she has had from her superiors is that she may have a superior ability to get results; but her major failing is in the area of communication.

When an employee’s superiors feel that the employee’s communication lacks emotional and social intelligence; the prospects for promotion drop dramatically. In other words, all that this employee is lacking in is what is called Executive Presence. If an employee seems to have everything that makes a good employee and has been performing consistently, but yet fails to make it to the promotion level; then it is time for that employee to improve her Executive Presence.
