Cultivating Executive Presence

Executive presence isn’t something we can graph or count or quantify, but when it comes to moving up the career ladder, it is essential. So what is executive presence? What is it comprised of, and how can we practice it?

From gravitas to communication to appearance, tune in as Kimberly breaks down 3 key components to help you understand, practice, and embody executive presence. Because “in the workplace, you are always on a stage.”


  • What is executive presence?
  • The building blocks of gravitas
  • Emotional, mental, and physical resilience
  • “The art of communication is the language of leadership”
  • Does appearance really matter?


“Executive presence isn't necessarily something that you may be able to clearly articulate or see. It's something that many people say that you embody. We all know it when we see it. And it's really the key to strengthening your brand as a leader in the workplace.”

Kimberly’s content is billed as being for women and people of color. As a white male, I feel that her content is universally applicable. As a person that benefited from privilege I appreciate having access to this point of view. I feel that being able to get an understanding of these topics from her perspective helps me better approach these topics with my employees.I hope she keeps producing new episodes and publishing books.
