Ela estava se candidatando para um cargo de vice-presidente, mas ouviu de seu chefe que ela não tinha presença executiva, e a promoção foi então dada a um colega de trabalho. Um mês depois, Rafaela foi contratada por uma empresa concorrente para o mesmo tipo de cargo que ela tinha perdido.

Ela ficou feliz com a nova oportunidade, mas também ficou muito confusa com a mensagem: “Presença executiva parece algo tão nebuloso, todo mundo parece procurar isso em seus executivos, mas ninguém consegue definir bem o que é!
