      Creating Personal Presence covers much the same territory as Michelle Lederman's The 11 Laws of Likability, but not, I fear, in as engaging a manner, or with the same thoughtfulness and attention to detail. There's still very good advice and excellent pointers here, and a different emphasis and viewpoint that may be helpful for some readers.Divided into four categories, Look, Act, Talk, and Think, Booher offers practical advice and illustrative anecdotes from her experience both personally and w [...]

      I love it. Am buying a copy. A very practical guide book, well structured, smooth. Presence is such a subtle thing, i know the importance of it but just can not figure out how to improve it. The advise in the book are well thought-out, easy to follow, I am ready to give them a try. Maybe I should also buy a few copies for my friends and colleagues. Surely everyone can pick up a thing or two from the book.

      This book was a recommended read and will be very valuable as I learn to be a great leader. My goal. to go from good to great to best!

    7. Thomas Brooks on said:

      Good book for new leaders and managers. I enjoyed, but most of the information is available in other more enjoyable books.

    8. Tami on said:

      Without a doubt there are some people who seem to be born with presence. They walk into a room and people turn their heads. They speak and others listen. They walk into an interview knowing that the job is theirs if they want it. The real question is can presence be taught? Is it something that you either have or don’t? Can a person who feels invisible and uncomfortable be taught how to change their whole demeanour? Creating Personal Presence sets out to teach presence. Of course looks matter [...]

      Really useful and well-done book, and I have read, edited, and indexed a lot in this business self-help genre. Features that impressed me: lots of not-the-usual quotations, references, and sources; elegant and not too gimmicky layout; very clear writing; and many graceful turns of phrase, including "myriad" used alone and correctly! The body language section was especially helpful. In general the advice was no-nonsense. The modern workplace seems to overlook a lot of behavior and comportment, bu [...]

      Είναι το πιο ολοκληρωμένο βιβλίο που έχω διαβάσει στο είδος του.Καλογραμμένο και καλομεταφρασμένο όπως λίγα (γι' αυτό και μόνο θα έβαζα πέντε) και αν και δεν είναι αυτό που ανακαλύπτει την πυρίτιδα, σίγουρα αξίζει τα συγχαρητήριά μου, καθώς στις σελίδες του ανακάλυψα δύο νέ [...]

      Creating Personal Presence is a book divided into four main sections, from the subtitle, Look, Talk, Think and Act - from the most noticeable/least important to least noticeable/most important. Not that you won't need all of them to be more than you are right now.Dianna spaces advice and some tips, with some funny snippets from real cases, but despite describing the qualities, the actions, the attitudes one should take to succeed, she doesn't offer many solutions on how to get them. Let me try t [...]

      Not groundbreaking in it's ideas, which have been presented by many other authors, but a concise volume that serves as a practical reminder of the elements of personal presence.I found the book lacking in action items and implementation strategies. Irritatingly, in the introduction she describes one minute "coaching" sessions with audience members during one of her talks, in which their "before and after" presence is stunningly transformed with just a few key suggestions. She never reveals to th [...]

      Good book, I take it at face value and found some interesting point and insights I will apply in the future. I particularly liked the effectiveness of writing reflecting thinking. It really says something if you think about it. I also liked the concepts about presence in the combination with strategic thinking.In some ways I was looking for more hands on directions on how to with respect to various points in the book. There are enough examples on where it is done but for some insights that is no [...]

      I enjoyed the book and found Dianna Booher's style to be easily readable and understandable. She offers lots of great tips on how to communicate in ways that enhance credibility and grow influence.Throughout my career I was trained in command presence and that worked well in a top down style of management. However, leadership in my current endeavor is more pull and less push. I feel the information in this book will help in developing my presence as a leader and I believe it will for others as w [...]

      This is a good book for beginning and tenured professionals alike as well as those in a position working alongside teams as well as direct reports. The book reviews simple but forgotten business practices, focusing on communication, interactions, poise, posture, etc. It serves as a good reminder and personal measuring tool for your individual presence and interactions with those you work with, support and lead. It's a quick read with a handful of nuggets that you can begin putting into practice [...]

      I used this book for a book report on leadership/personal growth.The novel is very helpful at approaching presence from all aspects. It definitely is applicable to real world situations.The stories Booher used and analogies made it an entertaining read and kept me highly interested.The only reason it has 4 stars is because I do not like being forced to read things. And I'm not one for nonfiction.

    17. Sarah Young keitges on said:

      I think this book can be helpful to anyone wanting to set themselves apart in life. The things that set people with personal presence apart is their confidence and passion.There are so many easy to apply tips and nuggets in this book. She even goes into proper etiquette tips. Etiquette seems to be a foreign language in this day and age and just applying those tips can set you apart of the world.

      Good book. Nothing groundbreaking here, but it is a good review. It helped me become more aware of my presence and how I was acting in the presence of others. Overall, it helped me change a few things about myself that needed tweeting and weren't outright offensive or negative.

    20. Martha on said:

      Although everyone knows you should't judge others upon first impressions or quickly they typically do. This Book has been great in helping me know there are things I do that give the wrong impression and things I can do to give the right one.

    21. Miranda Moberg Diaz on said:

      An easy, sensical read with some helpful nuggets. Recommend for young professionals.

    22. Lori on said:

      So many great tips and techniques for those who want to make a good first impression and present themselves as a strong, confident leader.

    23. Barbara Lovejoy on said:

      Although I already knew many of the things the author mentioned it was helpful to be reminded. Now the work--putting the suggestions into practice!

    24. Patsy on said:

      Had to read this for a "professional" book club. Blah. It was fine, just not my normal pleasure reading.

    25. Brandon Perry on said:

      Started off slow, but actually started enjoying this book after I got past the first section.

    26. Daniel on said:

      Nothing too surprising in here, advice-wise. Good as a reaffirmation of what good personal presence looks like, but nothing mind-blowing.

    27. SJ Barakony on said:

      Terrific read - very well structured & plenty of nuggets of insight to learn from, apply, & pay forward.
