There are simple and easy to action ways to boost our sense of authority, presence and gravitas at work. And by mastering them, we can quickly create influential 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. 

We'll focus on:

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

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

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

  • The importance of asking the right questions 

  • Why listening can be more beneficial than talking 

  • How to be emotionally aware and manage the egos of others
