“Presence is the energy you embody. We are energetic beings, and we all embody a presence.”

How powerful is your presence?

I received a question from a listener recently asking me about the meaning of the name of the podcast. Specifically, what is Power Presence? 

I decided to address his question in this episode.

To do this I start by defining what I consider presence to be and sharing two examples of the impact of your presence as a leader. I then explain how to access your own Power Presence.

In this episode:

  • My definition of Presence
  • Leadership presence in action: The impact of a supportive teacher versus the impact of a dismissive advisor
  • Accessing your own power presence 

Power Presence Academy: Practical Wisdom for Leaders is the go-to podcast for anyone who leads. Your host is Janet Ioli, leadership and human development expert, sought-after coach and advisor to global executives, and former executive with experience in four Fortune 100 companies. She helps leaders ground themselves with confidence, connection, and purpose and learn to lead with Less Ego, More Soul.


Noteworthy Quotes from This Episode

“Power is the capacity to act and influence. […] They had capacity to act and influence based on their title, but I think all of us have the capacity to act and influence regardless of our title.”

“I would define power presence as the ability to show up in an intentional, grounded, credible, connected, and interpersonally impactful manner wherever you are.”

“Power presence is accessed by making an internal shift from reacting to our emotions and thoughts and the ego part of ourselves, to actually observing and intentionally choosing our thoughts and responses to what is needed in the moment.”
