Listen Intently

When you’re talking to someone, everything else should be put on hold. Put your phone away and avoid looking at your computer screen if the person visits your office.

Use Your Hands

Use Your Hands
  • If you usually use your hands when you talk, be careful to match your gestures with what you're saying. Your hands should add meaning to your words.
  • If you’re not a person who talks with your hands, that’s okay, too. Drop them to the side.

Tell Great Stories

Keep yourself informed and speak with conviction. Use words like “I am sure” vs. tentative words like “I think, I hope and I feel.” Use humor, even if it is self-deprecating.

Don’t: Confuse humor with bad joke telling. And don’t overdo on the self-deprecation to the point you push yourself out of the conversation that it takes away from who you are.

Use Body Language

Be open, approachable, gracious and graceful. Walk up to someone, smile, make eye contact, shake hands. Introduce yourself by saying your name.

Don’t: Overdo it. When you smile, be authentic. If your smile is not in your eyes, people will know you're faking it.

Likability is Key To Your Own Charisma

Likable leaders earn the trust of their team members and treat them well, and that makes the team’s performance better.

When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.”

6 Life Lessons From Beyoncé

  1. Don’t let negativity bring you down, use it as fuel to promote the change that will push it away.
  2. Take care of your mind and body and don’t feel selfish for doing so.
  3. Beauty comes from within, don’t focus on the aesthetic.
  4. Be self-reliant and don’t let other people’s opinions take you off course. You are the only one responsible and capable of taking care of yourself as you need.
  5. Accept that failure is a possibility and let that push you harder to succeed.
  6. Don’t give in to the expectations of others, never settle and set your own timeframes to achieve satisfaction.
