"Executive Presence: The Missing Link Between Merit and Success" by Sylvia Ann Hewlett; HarperBusiness, 245 pages ($26.99). Using a wealth of hard data _ including a new nationwide survey and dozens of focus groups _ Hewlett reveals executive presence to be a dynamic mix of three things: how you act (gravitas), how you speak (communication), and how you look (appearance). She also draws on in-depth interviews with a wide selection of admired leaders to reveal how they embody and deploy key elements of EP. Hewlett teases out tactics that can help you raise your game and close the gap between merit and success.
