When some people speak, everyone listens. These are the lucky few with “presence”— that subtle magnetic quality that signals authority and integrity. But can anyone build a strong, inspiring presence? Absolutely.

The Power of Presence demystifies this elusive quality and reveals how to get more of it. As a CEO coach, PR executive, and political consultant, author Kristi Hedges has witnessed even high-level leaders and executives struggling to connect and communicate. Her experiences helped her develop her unique I-Presence™ model for inspiring and motivating others.

Filled with practical tools, strategies, exercises, and personal stories from years spent coaching leaders, this highly readable and insightful guide explains how to: Build relationships based on trust • Rid yourself of limiting behaviors • Embody values you want to convey • Explore how others see you, and correct any misperceptions • Present effectively in public and in meetings • Communicate in ways that inspire.

Presence. You know it when you see it, but how do you get more of it? The Power of Presence shows you exactly how.
