Learning to Fine-Tune One’s Leadership Presence

Carol Vernon

Leadership presence is the intangible that can make a clear difference for long-term personal and professional success.

SMACNA’s Women in Construction Leadership Council is bringing a much-anticipated session to the convention this year titled “Fine-Tuning Your Leadership Presence by Aligning Your Competency with Your Confidence.”

“This interactive session will provide a framework for participants to align their competencies in their work, to internalize their success and externally communicate it,” said Carol Vernon, a certified executive coach who has worked with more than 1,000 women leaders at the World Bank, U. N. Foundation, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and others.

“Once these elements are truly aligned,” she said, “individuals can demonstrate their strongest leadership presence through their words, voice, and body language as well as their actions to meet and even exceed their goals.”

Vernon will explain how her four-step framework of the “four Rs” including reputation, relationships, results, and resiliency, supports this alignment. Participants will learn how to use the framework for ongoing success and will take home action steps they can use to create their own stronger leadership presence.
