Charismatic People are interesting enough regardless of what they’re saying. So we must develop conversation habits that will make us more charismatic. The five ways to come across as more charismatic in your next conversation are as follows :
1.They are Humble
Humble makes us all look more human. At work and at home or at social gathering, this can mean sharing your daily or business struggles that help people identify with you. But it doesn’t mean sitting around complaining about what’s bad in life but sharing stories about struggle and which did not lead to a successful end.
2. They Use Humour often
Charismatic people add a bit of humour to their conversations without being over-the-top jokesters. Some suggests keeping a journal of your funny stories so you can use it later in a conversation or presentation. It can be small things that have happened in your everyday life, like perhaps a time you spilled coffee all over yourself on the first day at your new job or got drunk in our engagement party.
3. They Listen Intently
When you’re talking to someone, everything else should be put on hold. Put your phone away and avoid looking at your computer screen if the person visits your office. If you’re expecting a call, say so before you start the conversation.
4. They Use Their Hands
Your hands should add meaning to your words rather than detract from them. Don’t keep your hands folded across your chest or behind your back. If you’re not a person who talks with your hands, that’s okay, too—just drop them to the side.
5. They Make Eye Contact
Maintaining eye contact is a good way to assert control. Just don’t do a stare down, which looks aggressive rather than inviting. Likewise, looking down at the ground for long periods or past the person you’re talking to can seem shy and unassertive. Strike a nice balance by looking away from time to time, but returning quickly to continue the eye contact.
