The secret: It's not about you; it's about them
"Charisma is the fancy name given to the knack of giving people your full attention."
— Robert Brault
"How can you have charisma? Be more concerned about making others feel good about themselves than you are making them feel good about you."
— Dan Reiland
"Charisma is the transference of enthusiasm."
— Ralph Archbold
If you want to project charisma as a leader, the secret is that it’s not about YOU. Having charisma is focusing positive energy to the OTHER PERSON.
You don’t have to be loud — you can be a good listener.
You don’t have to be extroverted — you can be empathetic.
If you don’t have “natural” charisma, you just need to remember to care about the other person, and give them the respect of authentically considering their perspective.
You don’t have to change who you are to grow your charisma — you just need to adjust your focus.
