KineticFuture Book Club – Executive Presence by Sylvia Ann Hewlett

Welcome to the KineticFuture book club!

We thought we’d share with you our recommended reading list from the area of positive leadership and resilience, combining neuroscience, positivity and communications skills.

Starting with ‘Executive Presence, the Missing Link Between Merit and Success’ by Sylvia Ann Hewlett.

Sylvia Ann Hewlett, a noted expert on workplace power and influence, shows you how to identify and embody the executive presence that you need to succeed. You can have the experience and qualifications of a leader, but without executive presence, you won’t advance. 

Based on a nationwide survey of college graduates working across a range of sectors and occupations, Sylvia Hewlett and the Centre for Talent Innovation discovered that executive presence is a dynamic, cohesive mix of appearance, communication, and gravitas. While these elements are not equal, to have true executive presence, you must know how to use all of them to your advantage. 

Filled with eye-opening insights, analysis, and practical advice for both men and women, mixed with illustrative examples from executives learning to use the executive presence, this book will help you make the leap from working like an executive to feeling like an executive.
