Online Leadership Presence


Online Leadership Presence

We all know that first impressions matter. A lot. It takes less than seven seconds for people to make judgements about you and your personality, your likeability, confidence and warmth levels and whether they will trust you. It’s basic and primal unconscious bias – flight, freeze or flight. But do you really need to do this online when you are stuck working at your kitchen table? It would appear so.

What happens when women, who are judged more harshly on their appearance anyway are forced into a Zoom video box on someone else’s screen? Whether face to face or virtual, communication works across two receptors verbal and nonverbal. The minute your image pops up on someone screens people are looking for clues about your personality, your credibility and your competence. So now we have to make sure we give them what they are looking for or be doomed.

Leadership presence is evaluated in a heartbeat by two sets of visuals that is non-verbal communication:

  • How you look: appearance, posture, facial expressions
  • Body language that conveys status, authority, and power but also “pro-social” signals that convey warmth, empathy and inclusiveness .

Conveying warmth and empathy is a cocktail of small but important things that contribute to a strong online leadership presence.

Learn all the tips and tricks you need to make an impactful impression when interacting online.
