In Leadership Material readers gain insight into how personal experiences greatly influence executive presence (EP) and help leaders become more authentic in their interactions with employees. Jones, who has coached hundreds of leaders during her 30-year career, has discovered that real executive presence results from "blending personal experiences with professional identity," and in her debut book, she offers practical guidance for leaders searching for new ways to be effective. Through compelling stories and examples taken directly from Jones' coaching sessions with leaders and their teams, readers will learn how to:

  • Make enduring behavioral changes to increase their effectiveness and produce business results.
  • Develop the capacity for empathy and how to read responses from individuals and groups while maintaining authority.
  • Be present in communicating expectations to those around them.
  • Maintain emotional equilibrium under stressful conditions.
  • Adopt a new "leadership language" which when combined with new behaviors, shifts perceptions and creates alignment amongst disparate groups.
