DEVELOP YOUR OWN CHARISMA
Charisma is that intangible that makes people want to follow you, to be around you, to be influenced by you. Here are some tips:
Treat everyone you meet as if he or she is the most important person you'll meet that day. Even if you find it difficult to do at first, people will really become important to you once you've acquired the habit.
Develop a sensational handshake and project a positive thought as you shake hands. Example: "This is a great person; I'd really like to know him (or her) better."
Learn the art of giving sincere compliments. If you manage people, keep in mind that they really do care what you think and appreciate your mentioning it.
Work on your smile, and when someone smiles back, keep smiling for those magic two more seconds.
Accept compliments graciously. Instead of making excuses or saying, "Oh, it was nothing," just say "Thank you."
