Michel CEZON's curator insight, March 2, 9:28 AM

Charisma is a collection of traits and behaviors that help you appeal to other people. Charismatic people are often successful, and people are naturally drawn to them. They retain the best talent in their teams, and people listen to their ideas.

Because charisma is a collection of behaviors, you can learn it. Work on developing empathy, self-confidence, and assertiveness. Be aware of what your body language is saying, and do your best to give people a genuine smile when you're around them.

Also, make sure that you use your charisma the right way: don't use it to influence someone to do something that is against his or her own best interests.

How Effective Leaders Talk (and Listen)

How Effective Leaders Talk (and Listen) | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it
Boris Groysberg and Michael Slind, authors of "Talk, Inc.: How Trusted Leaders Use Conversation to Power Their Organizations."...

 

I have to laugh -- now we are teaching leaders how to have conversations -- something we do as naturally as breathing!

 

But OK -- I get it. When you are the CEO it can be a lonely place at the top. And how do you start having meaningful conversations with staff without scaring them all to heck? And what are the risks to the leader when they engage in these kinds of conversations?

 

I've been saying for years that organizational change and employee engagement happen through conversations. Seems to finally be gaining some traction. I work with execs on their listening and storytelling skills, never thinking I'd have to address the ins-and-outs of conversations. But hey -- the insights here are solid and I can see what I need to add when I coach leaders.

 

This is a podcast that covers these main points and more. It is also a promo for the author's new book, which you might also be interested in.

 

If you work with organizations and senior executives, you will gain some decent ah-hahs!

How Do I Create a Business Plan?

How Do I Create a Business Plan? | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it

A good business plan can be very important to obtain financial support from investors. This post will give you some insights to do well for your business. [note Martin Gysler]

 

Dear Lifehacker,
I've got a great idea for a new business, but I want to make sure that I set it up right and I might need some financing help to get started. What do I need to include in the business plan? Is there an easy way to create one?
Thanks,
Self-Starter

 

Dear SS,
It sounds like you've given your business idea a lot of thought. The business plan can definitely help you get started on the right foot. Whether or not you actually use the business plan to secure financing, writing down the business plan will force you to think through all aspects of your business, much like creating blueprints for building a house.

Management Tips: 10 Quick Tips for How to Delegate | BIZ BUZZ for Start-up, Small and Medium sized Food Businesses. | Scoop.it
Delegation is a key tool in the effective management of people, time and resources. Here are my 10 quick tips for how to delegate (with links to more resources should you need them!

 

How to delegate tip #1. Get Clear on Why Delegation is Important – to You

 

As you’re reading this article I’m guessing you want to delegate (or delegate more). Why is that?

 

Do you want to;

1. Get the time and space to do the most important parts of the job really well. You do the work only you can do?

2. Get your staff members take charge of some work which develops their ability and potential?

3. Make the most effective use of the resources available to you?

 

Getting clear on your goals for delegation (and any of the goals above are very good goals) you’ll be much more likely to get started on the delegation process
