Research conducted by The Institute for Level Six Leadership at the University of Kansas and the United States Air Force Academy has shown that leadership skills can be acquired and developed. Leaders who are able to connect the ends of continuums such as action and thinking, the abstract and the concrete, and the theoretical and the practical experience heightened judgement, stronger character and greater emotional maturity within themselves and their followers. Four components of executive presence are identified in the paper:1. Successful track record2. Establishing trust through high performance3. Self‐management skills4. Relationship management skills.Using the Level Six Leadership concept as a foundation, seven American executives were interviewed on the topic of executive presence.
