What you don’t know about your executive presence may be what’s holding you back from getting the job you deserve, according to Coni Judge, a leading expert on personal presence and corporate communication.
As a woman in business, it’s a tough world where all your achievements, hard work, and talent don’t necessarily get you into the big chair. Ultimately, the job goes to the person (usually male) who looks and acts the part and is the “safe bet.”
Does this mean to get to the top you need to wear a suit and act like a dude? Absolutely not. You don’t have to be a man, but you can’t be a girl. “Girls” don’t get the job; they get the coffee. It’s harsh, but it’s true.
Every day, every meeting, every moment is a job interview for the big role.
“There is this completely unrealistic expectation that women should just automatically and without effort look ‘right’ in the workplace. If we work at it, we set ourselves up to get it ‘wrong’. What are we to do? Can you be authentic and actively cultivate a strategic, professional appearance? “Do you have to sell out to succeed?”
The answer, says personal presence and corporate communications expert Coni Judge, is an emphatic ‘No!’
Coni explores the pressures that women face when it comes to looking ‘right’ in order to be taken seriously for the top jobs in large companies.
In the corporate world, there are several conundrums women have to contend with in order to manage their verbal presence:
•Be feminine, but speak with strength and presence
•Lower your pitch, but don’t speak too low and sexy
•Don’t talk too fast, but don’t talk too slow
•Show energy, but don’t over emote.
How do you balance these dichotomies but remain authentic? To start with, you must be aware, states communications expert, Coni Judge.
In Executive Presence for Women: How to Polish your Visual Presence and Look the Part, Coni Judge continues her exploration of how women can break through the glass ceiling in the corporate world by monitoring and mastering their verbal impact.
What does your body language say about you? Are you positive that you’re sending out the “right message” through your non-verbal communication? Does your boss or peers see you as too high strung or too low tone? Could your energy and body cues unknowingly be holding you back from getting the corner office and C-level title?
All of these issues relate to your kinesthetic first impression. Don’t let what’s in your kinesthetic blind spot hold you back. Start today and learn a remarkably effective way to send your career skyrocketing by polishing your kinesthetic facet.
Communications expert Coni Judge explains how to project a competent, dynamic and appealing executive presence.
The book looks at the art of etiquette in a bold a new way and outlines real, hands on ways for women to polish their sociability and, in the process, help their careers.
You will learn the five key tips for social success, such as how to stay in control even when you are faced with the most difficult of situations. Whether you are shy and feel drained by social situations, have trouble making small talk or just don’t know the right way to mingle, Coni Judge has the answers.
Get that indefinable quality called “gravitas”
What does it take to have the indefinable quality that so few people have and so many want? That quality is often called “gravitas.” When it comes to accelerating your career, having gravitas in your corner can make all the difference between slipping through the cracks and achieving the peak levels of success. But the first step is defining what you want to achieve and finding your center; Coni Judge adeptly takes you through the process in this innovative book for women.
