You know charisma when you see it in executives who exude self-confidence, style, composure, authority, and a boundless energy that propels them straight into the corner office. You work just as hard, contribute just as much; you're talented and ambitious, but what can you do? You're either born with charisma, or you're not, right? Wrong! In "Executive Charisma", bestselling author and world-renowned executive development coach D.A. Benton demonstrates that charismatic executives are not just born, they are made - and she introduces a proven six-step program for transforming yourself from a competent manager into a true leader.You'll learn how to think, act, and communicate like a C-level executive (CEO, CFO, CIO, etc.), and you'll discover powerful tools for developing and fine-tuning the complete executive charisma skill set. Drawing on interviews with more than 500 of the world's leading executives and studies conducted by dozens of leading universities and research centers, Benton reveals that people skills account for 85 per cent of why we get, keep, and move ahead in our jobs. The leaders who make it to the very top are those who work as hard at mastering the human side of management as the technical side. "Executive Charisma" shows you how to do the same. With the help of this no-nonsense guide, you'll improve your interpersonal communication skills, learn how to manage upward, and find ways to project confidence even when you're feeling insecure. You'll discover how to use humor to put others at ease, develop an impressive executive bearing, and master the 'Sacred Six Steps' to becoming an outstanding leader: be the first to initiate; expect and give acceptance to maintain esteem; ask questions, and ask favors; stand tall, straight, and smile; be human, humorous, and hands-on; and slow down, shut up, and listen.
