Presence and Gravitas
Workshop | YCN Library — For our members and programme participants

There are simple and effective ways to boost our sense of authority, presence and gravitas at work. And by doing so we can enjoy more confidence and impact.

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

But with practice, and by understanding our inner voice, we can all boost our sense of gravitas — and quickly elevate our sense of presence in all kinds of contexts, feeling more capable to communicate with greater confidence and with a heightened sense of authority. This session is all about getting to grips with the idea of gravitas and getting more of it into our day-to-day doings.

What we'll cover: 

• Recognising the biggest stealers of our presence and gravitas — and how to banish them
• Appearing confident and in control, no matter how we feel inside 
• Using body language, facial and vocal expressions for maximum impact 
• Questioning and listening skills
• Knowing our inner coach and inner critic
• The power of the pause

How the session will be structured:

You'll work through an energising blend of discussion, application and reflection as a group.

Who the session's for:

Anyone who wants to boost their sense of authority, presence and gravitas at work; and put new tools into play among a supportive group of peers.
