CommPRO Editorial Staff

In business, first impressions are crucial—especially during 2020 and the age of Zoom meetings. If you are labeled as “trustworthy” or “suspicious,” “powerful” or “submissive” everything else you do will be viewed through that filter. Your use of personal space, physical gestures, posture, facial expressions and eye contact can enhance, support, weaken or even sabotage your impact as a leader. 

In her timely new book, Stand Out: How to Build Your Leadership Presence [Kogan Page, September 29, 2020] international speaker and body language expert, Carol Kinsey Goman, walks you through achieving a powerful physical presence so you get that next promotion and give your career that extra boost. Stand Out’s timely topic will help emerging leaders develop their leadership presence and secure a spot at the board-room table or an office in the C-suite as we head in to 2021.

“In Stand Out, readers will learn that the goal of leadership presence is to align other people’s impression of you with your best authentic self,” Goman says. “I also reveal how leadership presence is different for women, why you can’t ‘fake it until you make it’ and why self-promotion is essential.”
