Mastering Personal Presence
Personal presence is not about the personal qualities that you have it is all about how others see your personal qualities.
Charisma is something that your followers willingly give to you not something that you command.
- Be authentic; be very clear and confident about your own identity and comfortable in what you are all about.
- Be personal; use charm to work a room, sense individual moods and changes in moods. This is all about paying attention to others and making them feel that they are highly valued by you.
- Project an image of success; managers with charisma motivate staff to achieve and the desire to achieve progressively more. This clarity of vision and clear direction is essential in improving performance and in reaching further goals.
