Leading Now: Presence & Gravitas
Workshop | YCN Rivington Rooms — For our members

This workshop, led by Catherine Allison, is for those aiming for a greater sense of authority, presence and impact at work.

Gravitas — a sense of 'weight or authority' — is often thought as a natural ability, something you've either got or you haven't.

But Catherine Allison, a trained actress and founder of consultancy Master the Art, thinks differently. She believes that with practice, and by understanding our inner voice, we can all boost our sense of gravitas — and elevate our sense of presence in all kinds of contexts.

Over the course of this half-day workshop session, Catherine will introduce a series of ideas relating to the concept of gravitas, and take us through practical exercises — so that we're able to communicate with greater confidence and with a heightened sense of authority. 

What we'll cover: 

  • Recognising the biggest stealers of your presence and gravitas — and how to banish them

  • Appearing confident and in control when delivering a verbal message, no matter how you feel inside 

  • Using your body language, facial and vocal expressions for maximum impact 

  • Tips and techniques for boosting your authority in the workplace

  • Tips and techniques for boosting your likeability as a leader 

How the session will be structured:

Catherine will share strategies through guided discussions and group activities. The emphasis will be on applying new approaches and developing individual and collective actions.

Who the session's for:

Anyone who wants to boost their sense of authority, presence and gravitas at work. As part of our Leading Now series, this session will be framed for leaders and managers with at least one direct report.
