“Executive presence has to do with the whole of the person. It’s much more than presentation skill, charisma or savvy. It shows up in three dimensions of the leader’s persona – character, substance, and style. It’s now clear that for a leader to influence and make an impact, it is important for them to also develop qualities such as authenticity, integrity, resonance, practical wisdom, and vision”
What is Executive Presence?
Executive Presence is the ability to engage, align, inspire and move people to act! It’s not only about how you show up, looking and acting the part, but the qualities that really matter, because they enable you to influence others, make an impact, and drive organizational performance.
Executive Presence becomes most noticeable when leaders take the “larger stage,” when their presence and approach to influence must generate inspired and sustained action across a network of stakeholders, and when they must help all navigate change and master increasing levels of challenge.
Executive Presence is a social-organizational phenomenon: manifests as a pervasive and positive tone; it produces high levels of trust and goodwill; it stimulates the best of creative, innovative, and prudent thinking and problem solving; and it fosters a sustained course of adaptive execution.
The ExPITM Model
The Bates ExPI™ (Bates Executive Presence Model™) is the first and only research-based, scientifically validated assessment to measure executive presence. The multi-rater tool is used to help leaders develop the presence and influence necessary for leading teams, driving strategy, and making an impact. Organizations use the Bates ExPI™ to develop future leaders, build the influence of seasoned leaders, and ensure teams are driving organizational performance.
The Bates ExPI™ multi-rater assessment tool measures perceptions of the leader’s ability to build trust (Character), establish credibility (Substance), and drive execution through others (Style). It also measures perceptions of the leader’s strengths and development areas within 15 unique facets. Perceptions of critical stakeholder groups are compared with the leader’s self-perceptions in order to identify strengths and gaps.
A key differentiator between the Bates and other assessments is that the ExPI™ is a context-dependent assessment. This distinction is something we, as certified ExPI coaches, leverage strongly when we provide feedback.
