Are you UP on Executive Presence?

At a recent International Women Business Owners conference, I was speaking on sponsorship relations in business, and also led a round table discussion on bouncing forward in business and thriving during challenging times.

She provided a great presentation about the 7-UPS of having an executive presence at the International Women Business Owners conference:

Do you know the 7-UPS of Executive Presence? Here's Susan's 7-UPS:

1)      Dress Up- look your personal best. I like to say “how you show up really does matter.”

2)      Show Up- be on time, prepared

3)      Stand Up- are you confident? Do you inspire others?

4)      Speak Up- how do you sound, are you confident, is your message clear?

5)      Listen Up- are you open to other perspectives?

6)      Lighten Up- Are you taking things too seriously?

7)      Follow Up- do you follow-up immediately, or as Susan calls it “the 24 hour rule”

As you think about your week that just went by, how did you do with Susan's 7-UPs?
