Throughout my career at Sprint, Motorola and Cisco, I could always recognize an executive. They exude more confidence, insight and always seemed in control. I always wondered what school teaches people to think, speak and comport themselves like that. Joel Garfinkle has identified that ‘something’ in Executive Presence. You'll learn how to manifest those qualities to expand your career and extend your influence on your organization.
