Keys to a Positive and Lasting Executive Presence
Now, more than ever before, professionals need to use every positive advantage to become successful. Gone are the days of building relationships over time. In today’s world first and lasting impressions are made in fewer than seven seconds. Professionals cannot expect the benefit of the doubt if they do not dress as well as their colleagues, or do not have good table manners, or cannot manage email or other communication in an appropriate and timely manner. Competition is fierce so knowledge and experience must be paired with an appropriate and professional image and manners to convey the confidence and expertise customers expect. Nothing less than excellence will do.
