Executive Presence

Executive presence is the qualities of a leader that engage, inspire, align and move people to act.


  • At SLOTSAGER I use the ExPI™ as a valuable starting point for our executive presence services.The ExPI™ is the first and only research-based, scientifically validated assessment to measure executive presence and influence in leaders.
  • The ExPI™ model clarifies executive presence as three critical dimensions: Character, Substance and Style
  • The multi-rater tool measures perceptions of a leader’s strengths and development areas within 15 distinct facets under these three dimensions.
  • This unique and powerful assessment process provides leaders with feedback that is insightful, actionable, specific, practical and relevant to their business goals.

Developing Executive Presence on an individual level. 

One-on-one tailored development program based on the ExPI for top executives and talents who want to enhance their influence. We will develop the 3 dimensions of executive presence: Character, Substance and Style and build your  leadership brand in relation to key stakeholders. We will also provides you with valuable knowledge and tangible tools to motivate and inspire others, and to drive vision, strategy and results. Last but not least we will focus on the actual leadership and business challenges the leader faces and particularly relevant when leaders are standing on a bigger stage, encountering greater challenges, and seeking to influence diverse stakeholders.

As your executive presence coach, I help you get a put into words what is not being said, zoom in on the challenges you face, and help you focus on what matters.

With me by your side, you will have a room for ventilation, testing, challenge and be challenged in. You will be able to understand and express your challenges as well as gain insights into your current role, executive presence behaviour and possible next move.

I set the framework, ask the questions and act as a catalyst for you to develop - but it is you who achieve the goal.

Executive Presence Coaching with SLOTSAGER help you get followership, build trust and credibility as well as improve execution behaviour.

The authentic leader creates followership when he/she has the courage to show the person in the role, be transparent and capable of becoming attached to the people around him/her. When leaders detach themselves only focusing on results or KPIs, it is limiting to the people around him/her.

In executive coaching we work closely together on a concrete professional problem or challenge of yours. We uncover the thoughts and feelings that prevent you to become the best version of yourself. 

We will touch upon topics as power, role, authority, identity and followership.
