Overview

A proven six-step process for acquiring the style, flair, and credibility needed to make it to the top

According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, managers who do not exude an allencompassing self-confidence, style, poise, and energy, in short, "executive presence," are highly unlikely to make it to the corner office. Unfortunately, the vast majority of managers, even the most talented and ambitious ones, are not born with these personal qualities. In this breakthrough book, bestselling author and world-renowned executive development coach D. A. Benton helps readers acquire executive charisma.

In Executive Charisma, Benton outlines a proven six-step approach for learning how to think, act, and relate to others like an executive.

She provides powerful tools for fine-tuning the complete executive charisma skill set, including:

  • Interpersonal communications
  • Managing upwards
  • Confidence building
  • Business humor
  • Executive bearing, and more

Drawing upon her experience coaching clients at American Express, Century 21, Merrill Lynch, Nabisco, Viacom, Pepsi, and other top companies worldwide, Benton clearly defines executive charisma and explains why projecting a commanding professional demeanor is so fundamental to corporate success.

    Must Read For All C's (CEO, COO, CFO, CIO, CPO...)

    Debra's book is mandatory reading for my leadership team and is applicable to every relationship we have in our lives...not just our professional relationships!

    A Good Read!

    Remember everything your mother told you. Stand up straight. Pull your shoulders back. Be outgoing. Smile. If you¿ve forgotten these lessons, this is for you. It¿s not what you know, it¿s who you know ¿ and what they think and feel about you ¿ that makes all the difference in your career. Be human. Ask for favors. Ask for information. Pitch in. Have a sense of humor. Speak slowly and listen carefully. Author D.A. Benton¿s presumably deep, probing interviews with 500 executives convinced her that charisma isn¿t inborn. She believes that everyone can learn to be charismatic. Just follow the six steps that can turn even the most repulsive excuse for a manager into a charming, charismatic executive. So, read this and practice. There¿s no harm in it, and it might do some good. However, while recommending this basic manual, suspects that the nature of charisma is a bit like the way a jazz musician explained the nature of jazz ¿ if you have to ask what it is, you¿ll never know.

    I just bought 50 copies.

    Executive Charisma is mandatory reading for people in my organization. I've read lots of books like this, myself, but this one taught me things I didn't know. It's one of those rare books where after you read it and put it down, you pick it up to re-read.

    This is what to do and how to do it, effectively.

    This book takes the mystery out of why one person excels in business over a comparably qualified individual who wallows in business. The simple, practical steps allow you to immediately put the advice into action. And it's not just for business but for your entire life. I'm the president of a company and I promote people who understand and use these skills. If they don't 'get it' they don't move up. It's that simple.

    Debra Does It Again!

    I have been reading Debra's books for years and benefiting from her incredible insight into the human side of being a great leader. In 'Executive Charisma' she once again reminds her readers to have balance, and value the importance of leveraging your people skills. Great work and a must read for all executives.
