Embodying Leadership Presence: Generate Trust and Influence

Not having a genuine leadership presence can have a negative impact on your trust and influence as a leader. This leads to personal frustration and inefficiency, weak relationships with teams and a failure to align goals and outcomes. The lack of an effective executive presence could be holding you back.

At Uplevel DNA, we work with you to be more present with yourself and others so you can actually embody leadership presence.  Using an inside-out approach integrating neuroscience, neurobiology and mindfulness, you’ll learn to self-regulate in high-pressure environments and bring a strong, centered presence to any situation.

This type of presence will help you reach the next level of leadership performance and – by engendering more trust and influence in others – help your teams achieve the results you desire from them.
