Presence involves more than simply making a good first impression. Presence is about making a lasting impression. In the professional world, we interact with people and so often don’t maximize the impact of the individual interactions. What if you could tune into the self-dialogue that is the most impactful for maximizing your presence? What if you could create the kind of lasting impression that would set up your future interactions for success? Well, the STAND TALL program is designed to teach people how to maximize their presence to boost performance.
