The Art and Science of Powerful Presence
Cheryl Dolan, September 12, 2012
You have 30 seconds to grab your audience's attention. 93% of people's perception of you has to do with your "presence."
this interactive lab, using multi-sensory processes from neuroscience,
adult learning theory, communication, coaching, leadership,
storytelling, creative thinking, and public speaking, you will begin to
understand your inventory of strengths ("presence points"), how to
leverage them to deeply and authentically connect with your audience and
embody Your Authentic Presence, a prerequisite to high stakes
communication skills including public speaking, with confidence in any
situation: In an interview, in the boardroom, in a meeting, in a
difficult conversation, on a stage.

senior executive with whom I worked had made eight job changes in 12
years. She was capable, competent, personable, and had outstanding
leadership abilities. Each failure chipped away at her confidence,
repeatedly stealing the essence of who she was. We identified her core
values. These helped her see how what she did had to be aligned with who
she was. Armed with this new insight, she was freed to make her highest
and best contributions.
