“If you decide that your comfort zone has become a ho-home zone, Hedges offers a 5-step personal change agent program.” -- Jim Pawlak, Career Moves
Everyone recognizes leaders with “presence.” They stand out for their seemingly innate ability to command attention and inspire commitment. But what is this secret quality they exude, exactly?
Executive and CEO coach Kristi Hedges demystifies this elusive trait, revealing that leadership presence is the intersection of outward influencing skills and internal mental conditioning. Using her I-Presence model, the author shows how anyone—regardless of position or personality—can strengthen their impact. Readers will learn how to build trust as the foundation for leadership, eschew perfectionism for authenticity, banish limiting thoughts and behaviors, and galvanize their team through visionary, inspiring communications.
Stellar technical knowledge, a strong work ethic, excellent presentation skills—none of these tangible traits puts people on the career fast track as readily as a compelling presence. Filled with profiles of leaders with powerful presence and the latest neuroleadership research translated into actionable habits, this authoritative guide puts a little-understood, but potentially game-changing, tool within everyone’s reach.

The author is a CEO coach who has spent her career helping executives work through typical leadership challenges such as motivating teams, setting vision, inspiring change, and navigating interpersonal conflicts. She walks readers through these scenarios using her model, called I-Presence, which shows how to be intentional, individually connected, and inspirational.
The book is easy to skim or dive into for a deeper read. I especially liked the appendix of quick tips for people in a variety of situations, including career changers, job seekers, senior leaders, entrepreneurs, young professionals and women. It also covers recent findings in neuroscience that shed light on how we react to change, and puts them into practical language for a business audience. If you're looking for a book to help you manage and motivate, this book is well worth the read. It will also help you build influence up the chain, another critical component to leadership and advancement.
