EP - Executive Presence: The Missing Link between Merit and Success, by Sylvia Ann Hewlett, is a book for those who aspire to do something extraordinary in their professional life. Summary of the Book Although many of us have the qualifications required for our dream jobs, most of us find it hard to get far because of lack of certain qualities one must possess in order to scale greater heights. What gains more importance in this context is, to have what it takes, to have leadership material that will accelerate the growth of an individual in their professions. EP is based on nationwide surveys and studies, presenting a dynamic blend of: gravitas (how you act), appearance (how you look), and communication (how you speak). This practical guide also discusses how certain standards vary for LGBT employees. The book contains several real-life examples and hard facts, which will contribute to boosting your confidence.
