Can we develop charisma? Yes, you can, says, D.A. Benton, author of Executive Charisma.Â Here are five skills you can practice to improve your charisma quotient. Â
1.Â Â Â Â Be confident. When introducing yourself say your name and then tell something about yourself. This helps to draw a question from the other person, and can lead the person into a conversation with you.
2.Â Â Â Â Walk with purpose. Pause before entering a room and project confidence as you walk into the room.
3.Â Â Â Â Use the double hand shake. When you shake someoneâ€™s hand, use the two-handed grasp. While shaking with right hand, your left hand grasps the personâ€™s arm at or below the elbow.
4.Â Â Â Â Focus on your goal. Charismatic people know what they want and are passionate about it. Focus on what you want and how to get there.
5.Â Â Â Â Be a good listener.Â Listen when other people talk.Â Value their opinions and make eye contact.
