How can Executive Presence coaching help?

“Star performers are very likely to attract sponsors, and loyal performers are very likely to keep them. But if they fail to distinguish themselves, these loyal performers run the risk of becoming permanent seconds, lieutenants who never make captain. To position themselves for the top job, protégés must therefore contribute something the leader prizes but may intrinsically lack:”
― Sylvia Ann Hewlett
Imagine, a critical position in an organization is vacant and the senior management is looking for a suitable employee to shoulder responsibilities. Two colleagues run in the race of impressing the management. While both of them are masters of functional skills required for that position, only one of them will be selected. Over a period of time, one employee prospers while the other feels stuck. The former becomes an essential part of the company, while the latter restricts to the job duties. Why does this happen?
This happens because the former employee is not only talented but also possesses skills that create an impact. The power to influence and drive people to a common vision is the sign of a true leader.
