My approach to personal presence
Personal presence can make a huge difference to how we are seen by others and what we can achieve in our lives. Personal presence is tricky to define but easy to spot. We know it when we see it – in individuals who are confident and comfortable, who convey positive energy, and who connect with others. People with presence speak clearly and assertively, they have gravitas and authority, and they engender trust by being real.
Yes, real. Because presence is not about putting on an act, but being more truly ourselves. Our belief in ourselves and what we are saying can easily be read in our non-verbal behaviour – our physical stability, posture, breathing, tone of voice, facial expression, and the energy we send out. If “what” we say is not aligned with “how” we say it, others will not put their trust in us.
We are all born with presence, but with age comes an awareness of what is socially acceptable. As we start to adapt our behaviour to the expectations of others, some of our presence and authenticity may get lost.
Personal presence training enables you to rediscover how to be present and to make fuller use of your capabilities. You bring yourself, your ambition, your personal traits and your natural talents. I can help you to clarify your intention, to build your awareness, and to align what you say and do with who you are and what you want to achieve.
Together we will bring out your personal presence, a presence that does yourself justice and enhances your personal and professional impact.
