3 Ways to Show You Have Serious Intellectual Horsepower
A study of 4,000 professionals across the U.S. and 300 international leaders has found that there is a check list that bosses look for in grooming and promoting their staff.
The three ways to demonstrate to others that you are a real intellectual player:
1. Get gravitas.
2. Have serious communication skills.
3. Present yourself well.
Found out the answers to these in the video below:
Sylvia Ann Hewlett, an economist and expert on gender and workplace issues, and the author of Executive Presence: The Missing Link Between Merit and Success, ran a study of 4,000 professionals across the U.S. and 300 leaders. She found that there is a check list that bosses look for in grooming and promoting their staff—how well a person presents oneself—from speaking, dress, communication prowess—determined the chances for advancement.
Unfortunately, as Hewlett's research shows, many women lose out on these opportunities, because they lack executive presence and don’t bother learning this very attainable skill.
Hewlett herself had to spend years learning executive presence. In her interview with Big Think, she shares her personal story of going from living in an impoverished coal mining town in South Wales to being a student at Cambridge University, where her working-class accent worked against her.
