You are already an executive leader and have mastered traditional SMART goals.  But, you have come to realize that the higher one advances in an organization the less supports there are to help you develop the most valued strengths of executive presence, certainty, character and emotional intelligence.

It’s your emotional, cognitive and interpersonal skills that matter – not just what you can do but how you do it. Often doubt gets in the way.

Executive Leaders who achieve excellence focus on: 

S - Self-awareness, Self-regulation and Self-acceptance that underpins executive presence and emotional intelligence

M - Mindful leadership mastery     

A - Anticipation of opportunities and risk  

R - Resilience 

T - Thought leadership  

Employers, boards and executive leaders know that skill acquisition is easier when these traits are already in place. These five focus areas are not specific to industry, size of company, education, background, or experience. They are the foundation for building your self-awareness and ability to self-regulate no matter what the situation. They are the backbone for engaging healthy relationships, teams and respect. They instill confidence, executive presence and a certainty that draws people to follow and trust you.

The end result of having refined these new NEW SMART traits is executive presence, happiness, and ease.
