The Executive Presence Learning Path is a roadmap to help you find your voice as a leader, polish your presentation materials, and practice your online delivery receiving targeted feedback.
Can you deliver presentations with confidence, authority, and grit? Engage, command the room and inspire others with the techniques you'll learn in this program.
There are two key elements of having executive presence: the way you feel about yourself and the way people perceive you. The Know Yourself element guides you through this discovery by reliably measuring 24 of your qualities independently of each other.
You’re able to understand your behavior in certain situations and how others perceive your actions. Your results serve as a foundation for you to adapt better to situations and communicate more effectively with others.
This section also offers a one-hour, one-to-one review of your test results with a Lumina Learning Certified Practitioner. This colleague walks you through the report, and helps you understand the results as they apply specifically to you.
The meeting gives you practical examples of ways your behavior is perceived by others and areas to enhance to be an authentic leader, command respect, attention and be heard.
Your presentation is guided by the materials you use to present your ideas. They make a difference in the perception others have of how prepared you are to get to the next step.
TruBLEND Learning handles the design and development of the presentation materials. From an instructional design approach, we create the pieces from scratch, or polish them to help you present yourself in a way that connects with others.
These documents range from PowerPoint presentations, handouts, brochures, guides to eLearning, videos and AR/VR that you want others to experience with your presentation.
Executive presence blends temperament, competence and character that when combined exude the right signals that embody your influence of others and drives results. This confidence, or ability to command a room, is built with preparation and practice.
Whether your presentation is face-to-face or virtual, the Deliver With Confidence element lets you practice your delivery and receive practical, personalized feedback that helps build your style, substance and character as a leader in a few ways:
Presentation Analysis Report
Identify key areas to make your presentation stronger
Receive: A 1-page, 10-question scaled analysis report

Send us your recorded video for analysis. You can schedule a one-to-one virtual coaching session to get feedback on a presentation you're preparing to deliver.
Present your ideas with clarity and conviction. Your presentation delivery tells others you are ready and have though through what’s to be said. This is critical to strengthen your credibility, authority, and the interest of your audience.
Complete each element of the learning path as you need or follow the suggested sequence.
