Mike Figliuolo, thoughtLEADERS’ Managing Director, sat down with Jim and Jan of The Leadership Podcast to discuss executive presence.
thoughtLEADERS is proud to announce a new initiative with The Leadership Podcast to provide very short podcasts called “chalk talks.” They’re a bitesize session on a common (but challenging) leadership issue. In this session, Mike breaks down some of the nuance that comes along with creating and growing your executive presence.
Jim, Jan, and Mike talk about the balance between “swagger” and maintaining a sense of humility in working with individuals. Their discussion breaks down the barriers that can come up with leaders who may not fully understand what exactly they are trying to convey.
Mike covers a few important rules to remember as a leader, especially when working with new people and new teams, including the critical rule of listening more than you speak.
Stay tuned for more of these brief Chalk Talks featuring Mike, as well as many more members of the thoughtLEADERS team.
