The Executive Persona: Don’t Look Like a “Worker Bee”

April 4th, 2008 by Frank Damelio

WorkerBeePacing.  Avoid the busy bee look.  Studies show that executives tend to move at a moderate and deliberate pace.  For example, when asked to speak, they rarely hurry to the podium and speak immediately upon arrival.  They walk at a moderate pace, pause to scan the audience and then speak.  Whether at meetings, presentations or social functions, by taking your time (without being wasteful) you are projecting confidence and importance.

The real value here is that as you “act” more confidently you tend to “feel” more confident.  The self-fulfilling prophesy works its magic.
