How to develop charisma
and influence people
It used to be thought that charisma was a character trait – you either had it or you didn’t. Not so! It is within us all. Charisma needs nurturing to expand and flourish, helping you to be the best you can be.
To become charismatic you need to be authentic, show the real you. It’s this authenticity, as well as your passion and values, that captures your audience, helping them to believe in you, motivating them to perform better and help achieve your visions.
Speak from the heart. Be authentic. People can tell when you’re not genuine.
With coaching, you will soon be able to release and harness your hidden charisma. Richard Reid has helped many people – from CEOs and entrepreneurs to celebrities – to enhance their charisma and switch it on when needed, for instance when talking to the media, performing in front of a crowd, or interacting with staff in the workplace.
By joining The Charisma Masterclass, created by Richard and now hailed as the UK’s top personal effectiveness training course, you can release your hidden charisma and become more successful.
What is charisma?
Charisma is a magnetic presence that radiates across the room, drawing others in. The charismatic individual may shine in public or at work, but will then relax at home or blend in when out shopping. The skill is in knowing how to switch on the charisma when you need it to conserve your energy.
It all comes down to communication, in which there are three key elements: words, tone of voice and body language. The non-verbal elements are important for communicating feelings and attitudes, and these can be learnt in The Charisma Masterclass.
So what’s at the crux of a charismatic individual?
- They’re interesting, having a story to tell and a dynamite way of telling it!
- They’re interested, showing total commitment to listening without distraction
- Their humour is spot on, timely, well-judged and inoffensive.
- They are the initiators of good conversation; whether small talk or current affairs, they make others feel at ease and always have something to say.
- They are influential, bringing others on board with their power to influence positively.
- They’re assertive, knowing how to gain the right outcome with compromise but without pressure or heckles.
- They own their personal brand; they are authentic, from the clothes they wear to the way they communicate. They’re comfortable in their skin.
- They’re charming, with a strength of character that shines through all they do.
When you realise the power you have within you, how charismatic and influential you can be, you will need to accept complete responsibility for your life, for what you are creating, to then feel more confident and empowered.

When I wasn’t sure what the word ‘charisma’ meant, I met Steve Jobs and then I knew.
They command our attention because we somehow sense their character, authenticity, power and presence.
