Oprah, JFK, Clinton, Tom Hanks, Ghandi, Marilyn Monroe and the list could go on and on. These are a few of those household names that people associate with charisma. They have a special something that makes them magnetic. People are drawn to them. Some may disagree that a particular person has this charisma, but that is not the point. It doesn””t negate the fact that people fell special when around theses people.
- They listen . . and without guile. A genuine, sincere hearing. As someone said of Bill Clinton, “he makes you feel like you are the only person in the room.”
- They look you in the eye.
- They are comfortable in their own skin. They have learned that their charismatic abilities were just an extension of who they really are.
- When you are around them, you don””t want to leave. They are charming.
