The personal quality of presence is one of the most important factors contributing to a leader's successful performance.
A leader's presence can be classified by three categories: weak, strong negative and strong positive. Of the three, leaders with a strong positive presence are the ones who have the greatest positive impact in building a motivated, high-performing workforce.
What indicators demonstrate a strong, positive leadership presence? If the following conditions exist, you have a strong positive presence as a leader:
*Your organisation reflects the core values important to you personally.
*Organisational members implicitly trust you.
*Members admire and respect you for who you are (what you stand for) as much or more than what you are (your title or position).
*Your drive and passion inspires exceptional performance throughout the organisation.
*Members are aligned and committed to standards, goals, and the direction you have set for your organisation.
Executives who score low on these factors are likely to experience much difficulty in leading their organisations, especially during tough economic conditions.
