12 clues of Presence

Do you know how you are experienced by others?

With technology taking so much of our attention, most of the professionals are outsourcing all the interactions to apps and the result is that they avoid several opportunities to show up as a Leader. However, given the diverse disruptions we are going through, it is just impossible to avoid the task of motivating, influencing and inspiring others in the organization. Infact the more and more you go up the ladder your primary focus is to create influence and inspirations.

The examples are all around you..think of people who are full of competence and experience but lack the gravitas you are looking for ! You might call it leadership qualities or substance or persona or energy etc.. the overall Presence is what you are looking for.
