272: Enhance Your Executive Presence, with Muriel Maignan Wilkins
By Dave Stachowiak
Muriel Maignan Wilkins: Own the Room Muriel is the Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Paravis Partners. She is the co-author, with Amy Su, of Own the Room: Discover Your Signature Voice to Master Your Leadership Presence. Key Points It’s about learning to adapt and learning how you bring your best self forward for the situation at play. Effective leadership presence does two things: (1) it makes an impression through the value it brings to the table and (2) it connects with its stakeholders. A leader who has presence is able to both demonstrate their value in an authentic way that is unique to them while at the same time connect with their stakeholders. Credibility and reliability are two things people look for in every leader. When you walk into a meeting, think about what assumptions you are making, what communication strategies you are going to use, and what kind of energy you’re bringing.
