The Insightful Leader Live: Do You Have Executive Presence?

You know “executive presence” when you see it—it’s what draws you to a leader, earns them your trust, and helps them keep your attention. Executive presence is frequently identified as a leadership trait that can make a real difference in a person’s career. But what, exactly, is it—and how can you develop it? In this webinar, Kellogg’s Brooke Vuckovic, a clinical professor of leadership, will explain the essentials of executive presence. She’ll also provide helpful strategies, like how to project confidence without showing ego. And she’ll answer your questions about honing your own presence.

Brooke Olson Vuckovic is a clinical professor of leadership at the Kellogg School of Management, where she teaches on a wide variety of leadership topics, including the moral complexity in leadership. She takes great pride in having received the Faculty Impact Award in multiple years from her MBA students for her outstanding contributions in the classroom. In addition to teaching, Brooke is the academic director for “Leading the Family Enterprise” and the faculty director of coaching for Zell Fellows, Kellogg’s highly selective venture accelerator program. Her work at Kellogg reflects her deep interest in the complex tasks of leadership in general, but especially within multigenerational family enterprise and founder-led companies.
