In her leadership lecture, Laura Sicola discusses the aspect of executive presence that does not get adequate attention. The speaker identifies how effective leadership communication and executive presence is based on the pillars of appearance, communication skills and gravitas. She states vocal executive presence is the missing link when it comes to communicating like a leader.
The leadership lecture explains how you sound and your delivery can either reinforce your message or undermine it. For example, if you claim you have passion but the way you say it is devoid of any actual passion, your words and delivery of them can affect your credibility. The speaker differentiates between tonation and words. She goes on to explain how you can use your tone of voice strategically to help you make a good first impression. She also gets into introducing yourself in a memorable way.
