Gravitas - The Art and Science of Grace Under Fire with Caroline Goyder

Research with senior executives says that gravitas accounts for 67% of executive presence. So, what is gravitas? And how can you boost it? This event will show you how to develop your gravitas over time through increased self-awareness and improved technique.

What you say and do are the foundations of good leadership; your tone, energy and presence are key in inspiring others. When travelling on a plane we assess the voice of the pilot - calm, confident and controlled reflecting an ability to respond, in mind and body, to any turbulence you may face together.

Embodied leadership is tested in moments of turbulence. Your teams measure your leadership by your grace under fire – your ability to maintain control of mind, breath and body, so you can communicate effectively and maintain the trust of others. You’ll be given a toolkit for centring yourself, so that you can embody leadership in a way that is authentic to you. You’ll learn how to deal with turbulence in meetings and stay centred around difficult people. You’ll learn tools to take this mindful, embodied practice forward.
