Charisma (even as a word) sounds sexy. That’s because it is. Charismatic people have a power that is unmatched. They ooze that X-factor we all seek.
Even when they don’t know what they’re doing or they don’t have an answer or even when they’ve made a monumental screw up, we still love them.
Their charisma makes us want to listen to them. Their charisma makes us want to be around them. Their charisma makes us walk through fire for them. Power Players find their charisma and they learn how to work it.
If you aspire to Power Player status, find what makes you charismatic. It may be your sense of style, your sense of humour, your ability to always find the silver lining, your crooked little smile, your Richard Gere-like walk: whatever it is, isolate it and cultivate it.
