SAN DIEGO, April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Creating Executive Presence, an intensive one-on-one customized coaching program, is pleased to announce today its first graduate, Natalie Block, of MBA Women International.
"Natalie is a great poster child for the program," said Jennifer Crittenden, Block's coach. "She put in considerable effort and was able to reap substantial rewards. I am honored to have been part of her on-going success."
Natalie is pursuing an MPA and Master's in International Studies. She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Washington with degrees in International Studies and French. She will be teaching International Justice in the Netherlands this summer. She hopes to pursue a career with the State Department or in politics.
"The Executive Presence Program is a wonderful fit for any woman at any stage in her career because the program can be specifically altered to support your needs. I anticipated that the program would help me learn little tricks or tips; I did not anticipate that what I learned could be so important and applicable to all aspects of my life," said Block.
"Professionals are told that 'presence' is key to their success, but there is little training about how to manage perceptions," said Crittenden. "This program breaks it down into informed observations, tactical exercises, and teachable behaviors. It incorporates techniques athletes use to improve performance, and actors use to develop stage presence. It's about creating, not conforming, so each participant's outcome is unique. It's a process of self-discovery but can also increase your promotability and compensation."
