Denis Boyles – Author, The Modern Man’s Guide to Life – October 29, 2012:
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 5 of 5 stars

Managing the Moment does successfully what few other books relating to lead- ership qualities even attempt: it provides a clear and focused understanding of a quality – presence – that seems too ephemeral and too abstract to ever fully communicate let alone comprehend. Ms. Parker makes the vaporous quality tangible. She does not dumb-down the concept of ‘presence’ or diminish its idealized state or trivialize it by trying to reduce it to some easy-to-swallow idea. Rather, she carefully defines and makes accessible the reality of ‘presence’ for anyone. Readers will gain a great deal from this book and its thoughtful and instantly applicable insights. It should be a welcome presence on many an executive bookshelf.

Managing the Moment puts presence within everyone’s grasp. I have worked with Lisa Parker for more than fifteen years, and she is the essence of presence and positive energy. This book exemplifies Parker’s approach. Through her prose she ignites the light in others by helping them get unstuck, believing in who they are and what they are capable of. It is well grounded, practical, and insightful with can-do guidance. For anyone who wants to be a recognized leader: treat yourself to the gift of Managing the Moment and enjoy the magic.

Parker hits the nail on the head in Managing the Moment. In this engaging book on effective leadership style and presence, she manages to simply and honestly quantify the seemingly unquantifiable. In a humorous and pragmatic style, Parker explains what presence is and its criticality not only to personal executive success, but to the success of the enterprise. Her framing of presence in terms of personal branding is insightful. These concepts can be put to work straight away – a lively and eminently worthwhile read!”

We all want to come across as confident, focused and engaging, but it’s not always easy to pull that off, especially when we are in a stressed or low-energy state. Lisa Parker is right: we think we do a good job of hiding those bad days, but we fool ourselves. Managing the Moment is a clearly written guide designed to lead the reader through self-examination, awareness, and action so that leaders can embrace and demonstrate their strengths with consistency and confidence.

I approached Managing the Moment with great interest, having been told at various times in my career that I possess this quality. The book offered me insights as to why others saw me as they did and offered some very practical suggestions as to how to further strengthen my presence. I had been under the impression that ‘either you have it or you don’t,’ and was both surprised and encouraged that the attributes can be learned. I plan to buy the book for members of my academic leadership team for group discussion as to how we can empower ourselves and others to develop the attributes of presence.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 5 of 5 stars

A wonderful book that promises to help build presence at work and then goes way beyond that promise by delivering lessons that help the reader “be the best you possible” in all areas of life. Lisa Parker is a modern-day Niccolo Machiavelli–only better, because her style of leadership empowers all without diminishing anyone. She understands the skills that distinguish responsible leaders, describes these in simple terms, and teaches us how we can make them our own. This is a work to study and share with colleagues, young adult children, and everyone else who you want to help succeed.
