Over the years, working alongside HR leaders in global organizations, we've found that "executive presence" – the driver of leadership influence – can feel like an "X factor" and is often difficult to describe. However, through our research into literature on social action theory, management, psychology and even ethics, we've been able to define "EP" as 15 distinct facets within the three dimensions of Style, Substance and Character. These facets – including Authenticity, Integrity, Vision and Humility – often matter most when a leader is about to stand on a bigger stage. Particularly if they've been in the shadow of another leader or even as part of an executive team, people don't tend to "know them" in a way that would create followership or inspire above and beyond effort.
The past two years, especially the last 12 months, have revealed incredibly interesting trends and a changing technology job market based on data from WinterWyman. There are major changes, driven primarily by start-ups and small companies, in where these companies are choosing to locate.
