Do you have the presence of a leader? Whether you’re leading a team meeting or giving a formal presentation, executive presence is a vital skill in business and life. Have you ever had a boss walk into the room and bring an air of leadership? When he or she starts talking, you know immediately that this person is in charge, but what is it that makes you feel this? Is it something in the boss’s stride or way of speaking? Being a sound leader takes more than simply knowing how to do your job – you must also be able to command a presence of authority and leadership. Sign up today for our “Executive Presence 8-Week Program”, where you will learn all about executive presence and the characteristics associated with it. Additionally, you will learn how to navigate employee engagement and customer engagement.
By attending our program, you can expect to give off a general sense of poise, confidence, decisiveness, and dignity. Our leaders leave the course knowing how to respond well under pressure, communicate clearly and efficiently, and observe an environment or situation and know exactly how to handle it.
Furthermore, following our program, our attendees have reported stronger communication skills, increased awareness of body language, and relationship skills. A leader with an executive presence has excellent communication skills. This goes beyond being able to speak or write proficiently – the leader with executive presence communicates clearly and with confidence, using energy, volume, and authority. The mannerisms and physical presentation of a leader tell a lot about his or her presence. Those with executive presence generally stand tall and look you in the eye. Lastly, in order to have an executive presence, a leader needs to be able to build strong connections with others. This means understanding what type of communication works best for certain individuals, as well as being able to recognize how others are feeling and connect with them emotionally.
Forensic Expert Testimonies:
Dynamic Therapy hires forensic speech language pathologists (SLPs) to provide expert witness services. Our contractors may be asked by either party in a civil suit or criminal trial to testify to the facts of speech language difficulties and treatments, as well as to the origins and prognosis in such cases. Our therapists who work in this capacity are not only expected to have expert knowledge of the processes and protocols involved in speech language therapy, but they also need to be able to explain these matters to a judge and jury in such a way that a layman can understand them and use them as a yardstick by which to measure legal claims. Our forensic SLPs work as consultants in legal and insurance cases, even when those cases don’t go to trial. In fact, expert advice from an experienced SLP can make all the difference in whether or not a case is settled or has to be taken to court in the first place. Understanding the relative strengths and merits of underlying speech and language issues can heavily influence the case.
Dynamic Therapy offers in-service trainings (virtually and in-person) for staff/certain core groups of personnel that could include school administrators, athletic or music departments, teachers, or dedicated aids. In schools, students have multiple teachers who need to provide instruction, support, and opportunities for the generalization of identified skills. While a speech-language pathologist might wish to contact each teacher about the integrated service roles, sometimes this approach is not practical. For certain topics, it is more efficient to provide an in-service training for the entire staff.

In business, effective communicators grab attention, motivate action, and create a lasting impact. Can you stand before your team, your board, or your investors with nothing more than your presence and passion, and bring them to “yes”? Become a dynamic speaker while developing the skills needed to inspire an audience, advocate for your ideas, and communicate as a leader. Through our training, we teach people how to become more effective presenters of information in small settings, workplace meetings, and large forums. The focus is upon three specific types of presentations: spontaneous, extemporaneous, and prepared-informative presentations. This course is beneficial to any person who might present information to a team or the public. The skills provided are vital to professional development and advancement.
