Leadership Presence and Influence, Why it is important?

"You know when you meet a leader" - this statement sums up what executive / leadership presence and influence means.

Organizations and people often elect their leaders based on the power of personal presence conveyed through mediums. Negotiators with strongest presence, not with strongest arguments, walk away with best deals. A leader must have the ability to articulate values and use presence to make others around feel connected as well as connect people to organization's vision and mission.

Good and great leaders intentionally influence people to do great things, actively persuade them to act, engage in negotiation that leads to win-win deals. They effectively bring groups and individuals with diverse views and opinions to agreement, that’s why they are leaders. Leadership effectiveness requires both the ability and skills to influence and the presence that is built on trust, credibility, and authenticity. Without presence and influence a leader accomplishes very little, will struggle to drive business value, and more likely to be ineffective in leading people.

Leaders communicate with an intent to influence a person or group within and outside of the organization to direct, motivate, and inspire people to do purposeful things. To influence people effectively leaders must establish their presence that builds trust, credibility and acceptability.

70% to 90% of a leader's time is spent in communication, it is highly important for a leader to be effective, they must be good at influence and have the presence. For a leader to be effective in guiding, directing, motivating, and leading, they must have the ability to articulate, persuade, negotiate, build consensus, and get buy-in.
