What is a Professional Presence?


  • Professional Presence has absolutely nothing to do with how many degrees you have or your title.
  • Professional Presence is an attitude comprised of all the resources you possess to influence others.
  • Professional Presence includes pride in your work and wanting to do things right, regardless of your job function.
  • It is a sincere desire to help clients/customers (both internal and external) achieve their goals and missions while you are meeting your own.
  • Professional Presence is the ability to feel and project a sense of poise, self-assurance, sense of competence, and credibility at work (looking confident)
  • It is acting in situations with an advantage, without making others uncomfortable, and using tact and diplomacy.
