I envision the book as a primer in teaching leaders the ability to develop the personal skills required of a leader. I've managed core groups of leadership (in the Army) who are responsible for ensuring the well-being of different aspects of company operations. While I am always blown away by the technical competency of those I've worked with, I find myself constantly having to work with some of my most proficient section leaders in learning how to present themselves properly as a leader as well as how to project authority through their presence. I would love to be able to assign Creating Personal Presence as a resource to assist my management in developing the interpersonal skills that allow them to translate their competence into holistic leadership abilities.
I felt that the material was presented in a manner that was balanced in terms of maintaining a positive and encouraging atmosphere while at the same time demanding improved performance. Booher avoids blame and instead focused on how to develop leadership despite individual circumstances.Read more ›
Fortunately, Ms. Booher deftly defines personal presence for us in four key parts:
1. "How You Look" covers the physical aspects of your presence.
2. "How You Talk" describes powerful word usage in conversation.
3. "How You Think" describes how to control your thoughts, reactions, and emotions.
4. "How to Act" deals with the attitudes, habits, and behaviors that impact your credibility.
Using thorough research-based examples and drawing upon her two decades of coaching C-level executives and their staffs in major corporations, she does a remarkable job taking the mystery out of personal presence and outlining how to achieve it. She's created an accompanying online self-assessment to help you explore your own presence at [...]
I highly recommend CREATING PERSONAL PRESENCE, no matter where you are on the continuum. It's full of practical tips you can use immediately to increase your credibility. As Ms. Booher states, "Personal presence is about developing your communication skills, thinking skills, and character to influence others for good and help you achieve your goals in life."
Creating Personal Presence is full of helpful hints and ideas that will enhance your presence in any situation. The tips and hints Booher shares are practical and realistic. The book is well organized and full of examples and illustrations to which the reader can relate. Ms. Booher states that one goal of Creating Personal Presence is "to help you increase your presence". Putting the practical tips and techniques into practice will help you look, talk, think and act with more confidence. It is evident that your personal presence can change. By incorporating suggestions from Booher's book, you can develop a more positive, powerful personal presence--the personal presence of a leader.
I highly recommend Dianna Booher's new book Creating Personal Presence: Look, Talk, Think, and Act Like a Leader.
If you are interested in improving your personal presence, buy a copy of Booher's book. She has a tip for you.
That said, the information that the book does contain is useful beyond expectations. The author does a great job in all other aspects of the subject.
