The Art of Charisma Toolbox (Episode #803)

Charisma is not something you are born with, so what can you do to develop your own charisma, what does it even mean to have charisma, and what does the science say about this seemingly abstract human quality?

What to Listen For

  • What is charisma and why is it important?
  • What are the three factors that go into being charismatic and what can you do to become more charismatic?
  • Are you born with charisma or is it something you can teach and learn?
  • Why are we drawn to charismatic individuals?
  • How can you stay true to yourself and be charismatic if you don’t feel you’re a charismatic person?
  • How do presence, enthusiasm, and confidence play a role in your natural charisma?
  • What questions can you ask yourself to know exactly what to work on to become more charismatic?
  • Why is active listening integral to being charismatic, and what can you do to improve your ability to listen?
  • Why are people drawn more toward optimists than pessimists, and how can you become more optimistic?
  • Why does it make you more charismatic if you don’t care what other people think about you?
  • What can you do to become more confident?
  • How does being assertive contribute to your confidence and charisma?


Charisma is one of those human qualities many people refer to as if it’s some mysterious genetic gift a few people are born with. But what if I told you that you can develop your own charisma in the same way you can develop a skill – like painting, running, or even chess. Once you understand the three components that factor into your own charisma, you’ll be able to see just how straightforward it can be to become the most charismatic version of who you want to be.
