The charismatic personality often has an excellent recollection of names.
They take personal care to address the person they are speaking to by their name the next time they meet. Why? It is a clear indicator that the speaker is appreciated and recognized. This is one quality that always captivates people – to be addressed by their name and asked about their well being.
Deepak, my friend is one who seldom likes to forget names and ensures that he appreciates everyone he comes across. His warmth and gratitude to all is nothing short of inspiring. Deepak’s insistence that recognition is given to all only throws light on his belief in being positive too.
One of their most remarkable traits is how they relish giving credit to others even if the glory is to be shared by them. They are generous to a fault and believe in giving rather than receiving. Charismatic individuals enjoy showing their trust and faith in people, they are seldom suspicious. They make fantastic communicators and they give importance to listening. Their enjoyment of listening to people is obvious as they interact with people.The importance or status of the speaker is not a matter that they consider as they appreciate. These personalities do not believe in being self-important as they understand the value and importance of others – no matter who they are.
Charismatic leaders like Deepak, believe in the importance of not only recognizing those who has held positions and hold the distinction of their services but those who may have encouraged and motivated others through their presence.
Charismatic individuals effectively manage their emotions, recognize the emotions of others and are acutely aware of people and their needs, thanks to their high EQ.
Another friend had recalled an incident to me the other day, how delighted she felt when an elderly lady who sat next to her in the office was thrilled by her call.
A call that my friend had made merely to wish this elderly lady before an eye operation the next morning after their meeting. A little kindness or sunshine can radiate joy through a simple act of merely calling and conveying best wishes and prayers – even to a complete stranger. The joy of reaching without any expectations is one that is practiced with passion by these folks.
The powerful ability to empathize with others is a quality that draws people to them. Those with charisma are always very conscious about the emotional state of those around them. The joy they sense from others and the tears or frustration that may prevail in others around them all are states that would compel them to reflect the suitable empathy for those around them.
Their diplomacy skills during conflict ridden situations allow others to catch a glimpse of their power to be assertive while maintaining the aura of serenity and courtesy.
Nelson Mandela had shown to the world how significant moral values and peaceful battle against apartheid can not only create wonders in reconciliation and peace but also positively affect his foreign policy too.
Marianne Williamson once said,
“Charisma is a sparkle in people that money can’t buy. Its an invisible energy, with visible effects”
Becoming charismatic, is not merely a matter of developing yourself, but developing yourself in such a way that you may not notice the changes in you but others will.
Changes that would be not merely perceived as being positive, charming and inspiring but undeniably having a charismatic appeal.
