Charisma

Posted on: July 1, 2011

Just a few short notes on how to exude charisma in a meeting situation.

The secret lies in body language – in what the experts call power moves. The choreography of physical dominance that, since the dawn of
hominid society, subconsciously warns the betas of an alpha’s presence.

The moves subtly declare ‘Obey this person,they are cool, they rule’!

 

So, how to enter a meeting room:

Don’t just scuttle in head down

Pause briefly inside the door

Survey your domain and as you approach your seat, move something – a chair a piece of desk furniture – to assert the fact that this is
your territory.

Try to get the tallest chair.  It’s important

If the chairs adjust, spring yours to the top height.  If you’re stuck on a short chair, sit on the
front edge so you look poised for action.

Don’t sit with your back to the door: studies show it makes you subconsciously worried about attack from behind.  Your pulse and blood pressure rise.   You look uneasy

And lastly, smile and breathe from your boots!

“Breathe from you boots…” I could be quoting you on this Elizabeth. Agree with your ‘chair’ comment too. When it comes to chairs you need to consider its position, select one with arms as opposed to one without arms(more important people are give chairs with arms.) and the height of the back of the chair. Imagine – The Queen on her throne… that’s a power chair!
