“10 Habits Of Remarkably Charismatic People”

I was visiting a friend in Buxton over the weekend. She is Chairman of her local Labour Party and a local councillor. We were walking our dogs over the golf course yesterday morning and discussing what factors make up charisma in a person.

My friend had met many charismatic people in her negotiations between management and workforce. She herself has that elusive quality ‘presence’ in her tigerish commitment to fairness and justice for all. For instance there was one moment in her negotiating career when both parties were at loggerheads. They had reached an impasse when she said,” With the amount of testosterone in this room, I’m growing a beard!” Everyone laughed, people relaxed and things started moving again.

She’d met Bill Clinton who she found powerfully influential as is Shirley Williams, erstwhile member of the Labour cabinet at one time and now a Liberal Democrat peer. She says Lady Williams is very magnetic and has an intensity of concentration, particularly when she listens.

Jeff Haden has written an article “10 Habits Of Remarkably Charismatic People” on what charismatic people do that make them magnetic and attractive to others. One of the qualities that makes people like Bill Clinton and Shirley Williams light up the room when they come into it is that they cultivate humility. They listen with their full attention and shine the light on the other person. Read on to find out more of what they do right…….http://www.inc.com/jeff-haden/10-habits-of-remarkably-charismatic-people.html?nav=pop
