Our World has Changed, Significantly

Across the globe, we are at the crossroads in the evolution of a new world of work.  One of the essential elements pivotal in creating this new world of work is Leadership Presence.

Why Leadership Presence?

It is a leadership presence that enables us to lead through the significant uncertainty, ambiguity and change we are currently experiencing.

When the capacity of presence is fully expressed, it is palpable and it emanates from us, energetically.  There is consistency in our actions, in our words and in our bodies.  We are experienced as; centred and connected.  We exude authenticity and are open to and present for those around us.  We embody the strength of purpose, courage and vulnerability.

The Essential Move!

To achieve a greater leadership presence, a move toward our authored-self is essential. 


Harvard Professor Robert Kegan’s longitudinal research tells us that only 20-30% of adults achieve full self-authorship in their lifetime. 


That’s a lot of agency left on the table for us to leverage to move toward greater Leadership Presence!

“Since I started working with Elaine, I have a whole new perspective on leadership presence.  I set out with a goal to develop my confidence because I was struggling with how to carry myself in a way that I thought was expected of a leader.  With our work on self-authorship, I am focusing on being authentic and leading according to my own style and vision.  While still a work in progress, focusing on my team and outcomes, rather than on how others are perceiving me, is quite freeing.  That freedom has brought confidence, improved my leadership presence, and has led to a new enthusiasm for my work.”

“Working on being more self-authored has given me a platform for recognizing leadership qualities in myself that I would have otherwise deemed less important qualities to foster and nurture in my professional life. For example, tapping into my own sensitivity and warmth has made me a better leader. Allowing myself the space to let go of defensive tendencies has allowed me to be more open. And during this self-authorship journey, I'm learning how to listen better, be more present for myself, my clients, and my team; I'm really working on creating more space to work on improving as a leader. What does "space to work on improving" look like? It looks like hard work! That work involves focused time, quiet time, delegated time, and practicing bigger-picture activities like setting strategies, collaboration, and being my best self.”
