Learn Tools to Develop Leadership Presence & Gravitas

Do you have significant expertise but lack confidence to assert your ideas?
Do you have difficulty impressing people who should value your expertise?
Do you know the body language that causes others to respect you?
Do you know how to use your voice to speak with authority?

Gravitas is a power that comes from inner authority to express your wisest thoughts for the good of the whole group. Gravitas is not bluster or bravado. Rather, it is the capacity to relate comfortably and authentically to everyone involved, no matter their level of power. When you possess gravitas, you command attention, respect and admiration, not because you are flashy but because you are wise and thoughtful. When you know that your ideas, words and actions are important, others perceive your importance and naturally value your contributions.

Recently promoted leaders usually have considerable knowledge and expertise, but they may be challenged when stepping into new roles that require more succinct speaking skills and the ability to exhibit leadership presence. Although excellent at what they do, they may need leadership training to learn skills for being at ease at the table with senior leaders and for exuding confidence to put forth their ideas so they can influence and persuade. Learning to cultivate gravitas can help an emerging leader feel comfortable in his/her new role and be perceived as a strong leader who is worthy of respect from teams, equals and senior leaders.

Sandra Zimmer's leadership training courses teach awareness of body, voice, movement, pace and presence to give business professionals tools to develop leadership presence and gravitas. Learn skills derived from theater, self-awareness, voice training and mindfulness to help you embody the characteristics of gravitas. Once you get gravitas in your body, you will automatically speak from your deeper wisdom.
