The key to success as a top leader is "executive presence" -- a nebulous phrase that refers to the intangible "it" quality possessed by all the best bosses, writes Jim Murray. To develop presence, pay attention to your body language: It's important to walk tall, to project unflappability and to shake hands like a corporate rockstar. "When you have it, people want to promote you, do business with you, recommend you to others and ultimately follow you," Murray writes.
