A leader’s ability to make a meaningful difference rises and falls with the quality of their presence. Presence dictates how much of our mental, emotional, and physical talents are available to us at a given moment. By presence, we do not mean charisma; we mean awareness. This awareness improves insight and action, but a lack of awareness assures that you are not fully connected to yourself, to reality, or to others—dangerous territory for a leader.
In this episode, Emma Rose is joined by Richard McDonald and Roger Henderson, two of Conversant’s resident “presence gurus.” They talk about why presence matters, practical ways to support greater presence in your professional and personal lives, and why it’s a critical ingredient to healthy relationships, both at the office and at home.
