5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review - Executive Presence, 25 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Executive Presence: The Art of Commanding Respect Like a CEO (Hardcover)
Is there anyone out there who wouldn't like to be a Richard Branson, a Mark Zuckerberg or a Lord Sugar? I'm guessing that there are quite a few that would love to be in the position of these business titans. But the proper question to ask is what does it take to be a Branson, Zuckerberg or Sugar?

In his book, Executive Presence, Harrison Monarth looks at the factors that make us mere working mortals different from our CEO masters. And the answer is quite simple. Presence. This is the art of influencing people, understanding how they are going to react in any situation, and being able to change behaviours in a way that gets results. The other side of the coin is the effect that you can have by changing yourself - modifying how you are perceived by others, and how that affects how they interact with you. The final aspect is what you do when things go wrong. Master these three things, and you are well on the way to that six-figure salary and the chauffeur-driven car.

This book is full of key information, which will serve you well in your attempt to guide and build up your reputation as someone who can lead, can be trusted and can deliver results. One of the major points of discussion is the effect of personal branding on your rise through the ranks and how it can give you an air of reliable certainty that all large companies are looking for to keep stability and surety.

Whilst Harrison has built this book on his own personal experience in business management, `Executive Presence' has solid grounding in the latest thoughts and techniques. For that alone, the book is worth its cover price. This is a worthy and required addition to anyone's business bookshelf, and I for one enjoyed reading it.

This book review was originally published on in the Sue Blake Media Online Book Club on LinkedIn, a site for professionals to meet and network.

Why is the lion king of the jungle? The reasons, says business consultant and executive coach Harrison Monarth, are his "impressive mane" and "even more impressive roar." Though other creatures may be smarter or even bigger, the lion has a special blend of true power and "an image and related behavior" that convey that power. In today's business jungle, image matters, too. If you want to rise to the top of your firm, whether you are a lion or a lioness, you must craft and maintain an "executive presence" by combining superior communication skills with the ability to "read" people accurately and influence their perceptions. Explaining these techniques and more, Monarth's ambitious work is dense with information and strives to cover a broad range of topics, some complex enough to warrant their own books. getAbstract recommends Monarth's comprehensive advice to professionals who want to win the lion's share of influence and power at their firms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Executive Presence, 22 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Executive Presence: The Art of Commanding Respect Like a CEO (Hardcover)
I've spent the past decade mentoring executives and I know that one of the most important aspects to success for an executive is the perception that people have of you, your reputation and your ability to communicate.

The book "Executive Presence" deserves to be considered part of the Bible for helping people control their executive career.

The importance and actions that need to be taken for personal branding, reputation, how to work with the media and great communication are all brilliantly explained. I particularly liked the sections on shortcuts to (creating) influence and how to hold conversations nobody wants to have.

On all my future seminars to executives I will be waving this book as a "Must own". Actually, I will propose that owning two copies is essential. One locked in the top draw of the office desk, to avoid it being stolen, and the other on the bedside table.

A Kid's Review
This review is from: Executive Presence: The Art of Commanding Respect Like a CEO (Hardcover)
Harrison Monarth is one of the most congruent professionals I know. He walks the walk and talks the talk. HE has executive presence and if he is telling us how to get it, we would do well to read, digest and apply.

Authors who are as congruent as Harrison are rare.
