Présentation de l'éditeur

It may be difficult to define, but we all know presence when we encounter it. Someone walks into the room and people step aside. Heads turn. When those with presence speak, people listen. When they ask, people answer. When they lead, people follow. People with presence look confident and comfortable, speak persuasively, think clearly even under pressure, and act with intention and integrity.
Presence is not something you have to be born with. It’s not about status symbols or position. It’s not about who you are but about how you are. And it’s something anyone can learn. Award-winning speaker and consultant Dianna Booher provides scores of practical tips on the physical qualities, communication techniques, thought processes, and attitudes that underlie powerful personal presence. This comprehen- sive guide will enable readers to become compelling leaders no matter what their current position.
Booher shows how to master the dozens of small and significant things that work together to convey personal presence. She details how dress, body language, manners, and even your surroundings enhance credibility and build rapport. You’ll learn to use voice and language to demonstrate competence and deliver clear and memorable messages, think strategically and organize ideas coherently, and relate to others in ways that convey genuine interest, respect, good humor, and reliability.
Personal presence can help you get a date, a mate, a job, or a sale. It can help you lead a meeting, a movement, an organization, or a nation. Presence can take you wherever you want to go. With Dianna Booher’s expert, entertaining advice, you can have the same kind of influence as the most successful CEOs, celebrities, and civic leaders.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Coaching to boost your personal presence 27 septembre 2011
Par Joshua P. OConner - Publié sur
Let me preface my comments by pointing out that I have never read a book focused in this arena before. Honestly, I have seen a number of books promoted in a manner similar to Creating Personal Presence and have been turned off simply because they appeared to focus on rudimentary or superficial issues when it came to the idea of becoming a more successful entity in a corporate sense. That being said, I was extremely impressed with both the depth and positive nuance of Creating Personal Presence. I was surprised at how captivated I became with the content of the text and how easy it was to draw correlations between the examples in the book and the realities of my own performance.

I envision the book as a primer in teaching leaders the ability to develop the personal skills required of a leader. I've managed core groups of leadership (in the Army) who are responsible for ensuring the well-being of different aspects of company operations. While I am always blown away by the technical competency of those I've worked with, I find myself constantly having to work with some of my most proficient section leaders in learning how to present themselves properly as a leader as well as how to project authority through their presence. I would love to be able to assign Creating Personal Presence as a resource to assist my management in developing the interpersonal skills that allow them to translate their competence into holistic leadership abilities.

I felt that the material was presented in a manner that was balanced in terms of maintaining a positive and encouraging atmosphere while at the same time demanding improved performance. Booher avoids blame and instead focused on how to develop leadership despite individual circumstances. I enjoyed that the book assumes an amount of personal success on behalf of the reader dodging the ever looming "bootstraps" mentality. I found that by starting from a level at which technical competence was assumed allowed the book to be more inviting. Overall the material had more of a coaching/mentoring feel to it.

I like that the book incorporates the author's research into the field citing the exact nature of specific studies and even including the questions posed to those interviewed. I think these add weight to the ideas presented and clarify the author's authority in the field. The narratives do an excellent job of creating opportunities for personal introspection and add entertainment value to the text. I found myself drawing similarities between my own performance and the characters discussed.

I found that the book addressed a topic that I struggle with both in my actual job and in my Army career... that is learning to convey what I know in a manner that other people flock to. It's one thing to know a field, but it's another to be able to convey that knowledge. The book does a terrific job of explaining presence and why it's important to advance in the work place.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tips to help perfect your personal presence 7 octobre 2011
Par Sandra Daniels - Publié sur
While working in the field of education for more than 30 years, I developed an understanding of the importance of personal presence in any presentation. Whether presenting a lesson to a high school Algebra class or trying to persuade administrators and board members to include a new course in the district's curriculum or discussing student issues with a parent--your presence sets the stage. After reading Dianna Booher's new book, Creating Personal Presence: Look, Talk, Think, and Act Like a Leader, I was excited to find such a great resource for improving personal presence. I even think Ms. Booher's book would be a wonderful addition to a required reading list for university students aspiring to become educators.

Creating Personal Presence is full of helpful hints and ideas that will enhance your presence in any situation. The tips and hints Booher shares are practical and realistic. The book is well organized and full of examples and illustrations to which the reader can relate. Ms. Booher states that one goal of Creating Personal Presence is "to help you increase your presence". Putting the practical tips and techniques into practice will help you look, talk, think and act with more confidence. It is evident that your personal presence can change. By incorporating suggestions from Booher's book, you can develop a more positive, powerful personal presence--the personal presence of a leader.

I highly recommend Dianna Booher's new book Creating Personal Presence: Look, Talk, Think, and Act Like a Leader.
If you are interested in improving your personal presence, buy a copy of Booher's book. She has a tip for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Full of practical tips! Immediately increase your credibility! 28 septembre 2011
Par Laura Stack - Publié sur
Author Dianna Booher writes in CREATING PERSONAL PRESENCE, "Personal presence may be difficult to define, but we all know it when we see it. Someone walks into the room and people step aside. Heads turn. Conversation opens up to include them. When they speak, people applaud or chime in. When they ask, people answer. When they lead, people follow. When they leave, things wind down."

Fortunately, Ms. Booher deftly defines personal presence for us in four key parts:

1. "How You Look" covers the physical aspects of your presence.
2. "How You Talk" describes powerful word usage in conversation.
3. "How You Think" describes how to control your thoughts, reactions, and emotions.
4. "How to Act" deals with the attitudes, habits, and behaviors that impact your credibility.

Using thorough research-based examples and drawing upon her two decades of coaching C-level executives and their staffs in major corporations, she does a remarkable job taking the mystery out of personal presence and outlining how to achieve it. She's created an accompanying online self-assessment to help you explore your own presence at [...]

I highly recommend CREATING PERSONAL PRESENCE, no matter where you are on the continuum. It's full of practical tips you can use immediately to increase your credibility. As Ms. Booher states, "Personal presence is about developing your communication skills, thinking skills, and character to influence others for good and help you achieve your goals in life."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent info, some a bit dated 5 novembre 2011
Par Jeff - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
There is some excellent information in this book for men who must wear suits because of their profession or corporate culture. However, the insistence on doing so for any leadership role is dated, considering corporate cultures of some of our best companies (Google, Apple, etc.) Space devoted to creating a presence while presenting oneself in a "business casual" environment would make the book far more up-to-date and useful. There are places where a business suit is far out of place, and where creating a presence is required.

That said, the information that the book does contain is useful beyond expectations. The author does a great job in all other aspects of the subject.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Solid Advice on a Misunderstood Topic 31 mai 2013
Par Jesse Lahey - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
This book gives solid advice on a topic that many people take for granted and wrongly assume they can be effective without being intentional. Many other people think personal presence is just about superficial things like dress, appearance, and etiquette.

Dianna shows that presence actually involves your total character, your confidence, and the essence of who you are, how you behave, and the skills that you bring to your role and to your job. Does that match how you look and how you talk? When there's congruence, that's really the essence of personal presence.

I love Dianna's definition of presence: simply being fully in the right role, as in "I'm in the right role for me and I'm fully present in this moment." As she says, "It's not just putting on an act. It's really making sure that you are acting with intention. It's who you are. What you say and do matches what you say in the role that you're presenting to people. That's why it's not just superficial. You're not just a poser. You really are who you seem to be out in public."

Contrary to the opinion of many, that's not just manipulating others to perceive a certain image. It serves the good of both yourself and other people.

This book will help you fully understand the "why" and "how" of personal presence.
