What if charisma could be taught?
The charisma myth is the idea that charisma is a fundamental, inborn quality—you either have it (Bill Clinton, Steve Jobs, Oprah) or you don’t. But that’s simply not true, as Olivia Fox Cabane reveals. Charismatic behaviors can be learned and perfected by anyone.
Drawing on techniques she originally developed for Harvard and MIT, Cabane breaks charisma down into its components. Becoming more charismatic doesn’t mean transforming your fundamental personality. It’s about adopting a series of specific practices that fit in with the personality you already have.
The Charisma Myth shows you how to become more influential, more persuasive, and more inspiring.

The Charisma Myth
Average rating
4.5 / 5
Connected on a personal level.
January 16th, 2014
Throughout the book I was able to relate situations from my past, and was able to see where I could have improved on those certain situations, overall the book was well written, slightly repetitive but that helps ingrain the importance of some of the skills. I practiced the skills and notice fast improvements in my social encounters. The book is mostly geared towards professional development in the workplace, although this was not my intent for reading the book, I found lots of helpful tips for social interaction. I recommend reading this book, and maybe look also into other books for more personal encounters. This book lists references to other books as well which might be of use.
