Register for the March Book Club meeting

The authors describe Executive Presence as “a mature self-confidence that inspires trust in your leadership. It’s the ability to take control of difficult situations, make tough decisions, and hold your own with talented and strong-willed colleagues — all while staying calm and composed.”

During this members-only session, we will explore key components of the COMPOSURE framework, led by the COMPOSURE team themselves. Kate Purmal and Lee Epting will dive deep into the most impactful COMPOSURE concepts and strategies through presentations, breakout discussions, writing exercises, and guided exercises. 

This book highlights ways to elevate your Executive Presence by understanding what causes Impostor Behaviors and how to resolve them. You’ll gain insight into the untapped potential that lives within you and discover what’s possible when you show up with greater confidence and Executive Presence.

Prior to the session, the authors invite participants to take the Impostor Breakthrough Assessment to better understand which Impostor Behaviors may affect you.

For information on where to purchase the book, we encourage you to check the authors' website.

PDI-POA offers continuing education credits for this educational session through Events Industry Council.
