Executive Presence Index (EPI™) Assessment​

When you’re looking to unlock the X factor in leadership, the key is to understand the science behind solving for X. Coach Vikram’s EPI™ is a research-based and scientifically validated assessment tool to demystify and measure Executive Presence. It evaluates leaders’ presence and influence skills within 9 distinct characteristics of the three behaviors of Focus, Power, Warmth

The purpose of the EPI assessment is to broaden your choice of leadership styles (Focus, Power, and Warmth). Choosing the right Executive Presence style helps bring clarity to solve critical problems, drive business results, and succeed in a competitive business environment. Developing better relationships, making dynamic contributions in the team, and making sound decisions are a few other advantages of taking the EPI Assessment. This Executive Presence assessment is on a secure and confidential university online platform.
