Executive Presence

What is Executive Presence?

Want to increase your power and influence in your interactions or organization? Looking to strengthen your leadership potential? Thinking that your online reputation could be stronger? Or do you want to be more effective in achieving your goals?

Let’s talk about how you can do all that and more by enhancing your executive presence.

What is executive presence?

It’s the charisma that commands attention. It’s the confidence that builds trust. It’s the polish in your professional image, presentation skills, or online profile that gets results.

In short, executive presence is how you present or carry yourself when you want to inspire, influence, and impact others. It is that wow factor that complements your skills and enables you to make things happen, whether that’s a promotion, business growth, getting your message across, increasing internet traffic, or inspiring others to take action.

Harnessing your executive presence

Executive presence may seem intangible, but you can harness and enhance it to achieve your goals more efficiently and effectively. This is what I do with you.  Together, we will explore the fundamentals of self-improvement and self-image that will transform your aspirations into achievements, and your personal and online presence into something that generates trust and engagement:

  1. Communication- how you speak
  2. Appearance– how you look
  3. Gravitas– how you act


When you have executive presence, you go beyond speaking or writing proficiently. You communicate messages more clearly and concisely, and with greater confidence, using energy, volume, and authority in ways that engage and inspire your team.


Your look and your non-verbal communication – such as body language, gestures, and posture – create first impressions and set expectations. The more thought you give to your wardrobe choices  and how you carry yourself, the more positive your impressions will be. The same is true for your online presence. Creating the right LinkedIn profile, for example, will help establish you as a thought leader in your field.


Gravitas is composed of everything from your character and confidence to your generosity and decisiveness. Essentially, all the qualities that inspire people to follow or collaborate with you. In fact, a study of 268 senior executives identified it as the most important factor in leadership promotion decisions (67 per cent). But 81 per cent of people are unclear how to act on it. It’s time to join that 9 per cent.

 Are you ready to harness your full potential?  To gain more polish, more confidence, and more traction in reaching your goals? To strengthen your online profile? Take that first step and contact me. Together, we will develop an executive presence that turns your objectives into successes.

Don't Take My Word For It Though...

“Approachable and encouraging, Colette played a big part in building my confidence to open my own practice.”  ~ Entrepreneur

“As a consultant working in the field of marketing communications, you would assume networking and marketing my own business would be natural for me.  Not so, and I was embarrassed to ask for help until a client recommended that I call Colette.  From the first conversation through to the end of our sessions, Colette put me at ease and made the experience fun and very rewarding.  Our sessions together were well organized and productive and her practical advice was invaluable. It was a great experience. I would highly recommend her personal coaching services to anyone who wants to improve their business skills.” ~ Consultant

“I found Colette’s support and experience made me more confident.”  ~ Manager

Colette's approach is unique in that she offers a holistic approach, not simply a "career coach".  By looking at the big picture first, she guides you to define your path to be successful on your terms. Colette was great at providing best practices and goal setting techniques, theory and measurements but what I especially enjoyed was that I had to do all the work!  Making me focus on my business from a present and future perspective put me in the driver's seat!” ~ Financial Planner

Colette’s insight brings clarity to any situation. Her business coaching has made a huge difference in my online presence. ~ Creative Director

“Colette’s Networking Boot Camp was professional and polished, while her personal stories and antidotes made it easy for us to relate to her. She was very down to earth- a real person who we could identify with so it was easy to learn from her. Her genuine personality and ability to engage the group allowed us to learn new skills and gave us some new and practical ideas to try out.  I would highly recommend this presentation to people at all levels, especially younger staff.  Her sense of humour will keep you entertained, while her material will be useful to reduce stress and get you thinking about what you need to do prior to that next big event to ensure success.” ~Partner Professional Services Firm

"Working with Colette is enjoyable, educational and inspiring! I highly recommend her to help with just about anything - to motivate, organize and get real results!" ~ VP

“She is a leader, a mentor, an innovator and an authentic entrepreneur. I am continuously ‘wowed’ by her intuitive ability, her sincerity, her genuine interest in people and creative ingenuity.” ~ Public Affairs Manager

“I'm thankful to have found such a wonderful mentor who has helped me grow professionally!” ~ Consultant

“Colette does her homework, so she knows exactly what you are striving to accomplish and quickly comes up with the best strategies.  Not only is she creative and easy-going, she provides 100% of her attention and focus. Colette is patient and calm under any sort of situation and a delight to work with.” ~ Company  Director

“It was a pleasure working with Colette. She is seasoned professional, who through a systematic analysis of my work and lifestyle habits, allowed me to get rid of the “clutter” and concentrate on my core business. It gave me a new perspective on how proper organization can increase productivity without creating additional work.  Her gracious, yet entertaining nature led me to a more efficient working environment and inevitably a more productive lifestyle.” ~ Regional Manager Financial Services
