Aspiring and experienced leaders are finding out the hard way that in-person executive presence does not automatically transfer to a virtual environment.
That's because Executive Presence is made up of a number of qualities, including confidence, credibility, transparency, and empathy. These qualities are conveyed to your audience through dozens of verbal and nonverbal signals. However, many of these signals are distorted, minimized or obscured by the camera.
Virtual Executive Presence is the ability to overcome those obstacles and clearly convey these leadership qualities in virtual meetings, conversations or recorded videos without any miscommunication or loss of quality.
A new medium demands new skills.
