DEMYSTIFY EXECUTIVE PRESENCE FOR GREATER INFLUENCE
For the first time, high performing women have a science-based way to assess their strengths, blind spots and opportunities to heighten their executive presence.
Minor tweaks in behaviour, conversation and personal style have a huge impact on female leaders’ ability to elevate their presence and influence in their industry.
By using a science and data-based approach, we are able to now uncover and measure your perception of self versus the perception of others in relation to your executive presence. Making the elusive topic of executive presence from intangible to tangible.
Our systematic method includes our own PQ® – Presence Quotient® Proprietary Diagnostic Tool to assess how female leaders currently view their own presence.
It also includes the Bates EXPI™ 360 Executive Presence Assessment Tool. This tool is groundbreaking because it’s the only science-based model in the world that not only gives leaders a definition of executive presence they can understand and act on, but more importantly how others perceive their leadership style.

“I’ve worked with Melissa for the last 18 months as I made the transition from senior manager to Executive. We spent time defining what the elusive ‘Executive Presence’ meant for me and which is so important for senior women to understand. Through a combination of redefining personal presentation and defining and staying true to my brand she made having a leadership presence so easy and effortless. It continues to feed my confidence at work as I grow as a leader. Thanks Melissa – you are a genius.”
