How to harness charisma in business

Being charismatic in most settings is definitely a plus. It’s particularly useful in a business setting. And for a leader it’s a necessary skill to be able to use charisma in business to influence a variety of stakeholders, from customers, peers to board members and staff.

Having personal charm and charisma is a vital leadership quality especially in organisations going through significant change or operating in turbulent markets. Here the abilities of your leaders will often be the crucial influence between success and failure of the business.

But is charisma an almost magical quality only available to the charming and successful? Is it something just out of our reach? Can you really turn a shy wallflower into the next Jack Nicolson or Helen Mirren?

“Charisma is a sparkle in people that money can’t buy. It’s an invisible energy with visible effects.” Marianne Williamson

Using charisma to attract, charm and influence

Charisma is the quality of being able to attract, charm and influence those around you. Charisma is the result of excellent communications skills and ultimately being able to influence those around you. There are different styles or types of charisma some people may have a more quiet style relying on more on personal charm to influence, others may be more passionate sweeping others along with their enthusiasm.

So is charisma something that can be nurtured and a skill to be learned? Yes most definitely! Actors know it is something that can be consciously developed and acquired.
