Executive Presence

Paragon’s Executive Presence model is a holistic, proven process to help leaders use first impressions, actions, communication and emotional intelligence as a strategic advantage.

Paragon customizes each engagement to the leader, group or organization. We use a team approach consisting of specialists, including an Executive Presence coach, Communications coach, PR Specialist and Professional Stylist. With this team in your corner, you will learn the importance of self-awareness and self-expression, intended actions, voice strength, audience cues, communicating with intention, and how personal style impacts perception. Most importantly, you will learn and practice the skills and strategies needed to earn respect and authority, without compromising who you are.
