Developing Charisma - Increasing Your Influence in the Workplace

Developing Charisma - Increasing Your Influence in the Workplace | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

Have you ever worked with a very charismatic leader?


If so, then it's likely that almost everyone in the organization liked, trusted, and admired this person.
People listened when she talked, colleagues supported her ideas, and talented people wanted to join her team. In short, everyone wanted to be around this person!

 

Charisma is something that many people believe you're born with. However, this isn't the case – you can become more charismatic, and we'll explore how you can develop charisma in this article

 

Defining Charisma

 

Charisma is a collection of traits and behaviors that make you appeal to other people. The word comes from the Greek word "charis," which means "grace" or "gift."

Michel CEZON's curator insight, March 2, 2014 12:28 PM

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.

8 Rules For Creating A Passionate Work Culture

8 Rules For Creating A Passionate Work Culture | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it
Hire for passion and commitment first, experience second, and credentials third. You don’t want to be simply a stepping stone on an employee’s journey toward their own passion.

 

Several years ago I was in the Thomson Building in Toronto. I went down the hall to the small kitchen to get myself a cup of coffee. Ken Thomson was there, making himself some instant soup. At the time, he was the ninth-richest man in the world, worth approximately $19.6 billion. Enough, certainly, to afford a nice lunch. I looked at the soup he was stirring. “It suits me just fine,” he said, smiling.

 

Thomson understood value. Neighbors reported seeing him leave his local grocery store with jumbo packages of tissues that were on sale. He bought off-the-rack suits and had his old shoes resoled. Yet he had no difficulty paying almost $76 million for a painting (for Peter Paul Rubens’s Massacre of the Innocents, in 2002). He sought value, whether it was in business, art, or groceries.

How To Raise A $1M Seed Round

How To Raise A $1M Seed Round | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

You have a great idea but not funds... welcome in the real world! A very interesting post about this matter, if you search some investors, you should read it. [note mg]

 

When I talk to my friends who are not currently at startups, or the Silicon Valley, the perception is that VCs and individual investors are throwing around investment dollars like drunken sailors. Outsiders think that there is a bubble, and that any company with two engineers and an idea will get funded (though there is some truth to that in certain cases).

 

The reality is, competition has never been fiercer for startups, especially at the seed stage, to close a round. The pendulum may have swung for Y Combinator companies, but not everyone else.

 

I am a non-technical co-founder of Scripted.com – a marketplace for businesses to hire freelance writers. We recently closed a $1M seed round led by an institution (Crosslink Capital) – I wanted to highlight some of the lessons I learned along the way, and pass along a few tidbits for those of you who may be in the same situation.

Supportive Leadership – The 5 Basic Rules

Supportive Leadership – The 5 Basic Rules | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

More than two thirds of all problems in our society result from a decrepit leadership culture in economy and politics which allows indispensable profound reforms (i.e. climate protection, finance and tax legislation) and “green” technologies for our environment and thus a qualitative (and not just quantitative) growth to only a limited extent. The whole of Europe is deeply in dept. The standards of living and raw materials become more and more expensive. Nature and “deceived” people strike back because leadership elites show a high degree of inertia. Those responsible lack the capability to anticipate in time the necessary processes of innovation and change, to control and implement them.

 

It is true that companies impart specialized competences, but they criminally neglect the training for key skills like competences regarding change, relations, creativity and leadership. However, it is exactly these skills which ensure a sustainable power of success of an exceedingly demanding society and a flexible employability of its people – even in critical times.

7 Tips for Naming Your Business

7 Tips for Naming Your Business | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it
Choosing the right name for your business can have a lasting impact when it comes to propelling a business to success. Here are tips in choosing the right one.

 

Entrepreneurs fret over packaging and a host of other details as they get started, and then leave one of the most important aspects as an afterthought.

 

The sad truth is that the right name can sometimes make all the difference when it comes to propelling a business to success, rather than just slogging on.

 

Consider this: Would you like "Patagonian toothfish" on your plate tonight for dinner? Hmm… not so much? Ok what about "Chilean Sea Bass?" That's much better, right? Or another example is how Marion Morrison put on a cowboy hat, slung on a six-shooter and became "John Wayne."

The Antidote to Ambiguity: Values-Based Leadership

The Antidote to Ambiguity: Values-Based Leadership | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

What is your mission statement? How many people in your organization have read it? Understand it? Remember it? BELIEVE IT? And, how many of those who remain after answering those questions have actually adopted it?

 

Management books universally extol the importance of a mission statement. I have both suffered through mission development exercises as a staff member and been hired to facilitate these sessions. The process goes something like this: a group of senior administrators lock themselves in a room for an extended period of time; they debate, compromise, and craft lofty prose until they finally unveil (white smoke from chimney) their UNIFYING DOCUMENT. Shortly thereafter, they proudly display their statements on websites, placards, and business cards, then sit back and wait for the wisdom to trickle down to the masses. Much to their surprise, little change occurs.

Responsive Web Design: The Ultimate Guide for Online Marketers

Responsive Web Design: The Ultimate Guide for Online Marketers | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

As of February, the smartphone share in the United States has reached nearly 50%. 2012 is FINALLY "the year of mobile" and this means that you need to invest in a mobile user experience. Check your analytics — that mobile traffic share keeps growing!

 

With all of the hype that responsive web design is getting, what are the biggest implications for marketers and SEOs regarding its fit as the long-term mobile strategy?

 

First Of All, What is Responsive Web Design?

 

In a nutshell, responsive web design (RWD) is a technique which uses fluid layouts (which "stretch" to as much screen real estate as possible) in addition to the CSS "@media queries," which apply different style sheets (CSS) based on the current screen size of the device. With responsive design, your website will fit virtually any device with a full browser:

 

smartphones, iPad + other tablets (both landscape and portrait modes), and even TVs. It doesn’t matter that thr Galaxy Tab’s resolution is different from a Nexus S phone — your site will render beautifully, as long as responsive design was correctly implemented.

I was recently reading Steve Pavlina’s: 10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job and noticed that this guy knows what the hell he’s talking about. For this, I feel that it’s very important that I share his article with you just in case you might think like I used to. I too believed that security came with working that “9-5″ and hustling my ass off hoping for a minuscule raise. Sounds familiar right?

 

When I decided to start Circle One Communications, LLC in January 2008 I knew I was taking on a major risk. I also knew that most people wouldn’t understand. Steve along with other successful online marketers seemed to be the only people who understood my downright disdain for being a sheep in a work force that taxed the employee for the benefit of corporate profits. I can relate to the employee mentality for maintaining stability but at the same time…

6 Online Instant File Sharing Sites You’ve Never Heard Of

6 Online Instant File Sharing Sites You’ve Never Heard Of | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

Send large files to your friends without any hassle. There are a wide variety of file sharing sites that make it possible for you to send any file to anyone else without having to create a user account. If you’ve got a file to share, and email simply isn’t cutting it, you’ve found the right list.


It’s almost become a cliche in the world of web apps: sites that allow you to share large files in just a few clicks. This isn’t a bad thing, though; you never know when a particular service might not be offered anymore. You also may find services you like better than others; whatever your reason, it never hurts to explore your options.

 

That’s why I highly recommend you check out 3 superb ways to share files. This service outlines Crate, ge.tt, and min.us, three great ways to share files. It’s also worth reading our unofficial Dropbox manual, if you want to do some serious file sharing.

 

If that file sharing site doesn’t cut it though, keep reading to discover some more great tools for the job. All of these programs don’t require registration, work on any Internet-connected computer regardless of operating system, and need only a browser to function properly. Best of all: they’re free.

The 10-Minute Technique to Becoming a More Productive Writer

The 10-Minute Technique to Becoming a More Productive Writer | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

When it's compelling enough, the right vision feels like it pulls you toward your goals, making everything you do feel easier. But uncovering that vision doesn't always come easily...

 

Late last year, when I interviewed Brian Clark about his approach to productive blogging, he said something that really struck me as a writer.

 

Brian’s big on vision — he told me that he believed his vision for his online business was pretty much the key to his success as both a blogger and business owner.


As he said, “It feels really great when you do what you know needs to be done, because you’re getting one step closer to seeing your vision, in one form or another, coming true.”

 

Having a clear, compelling vision will instantly make you more productive — you’ll “know what needs to be done.”

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership | VISUAL PROSPERITY by Cynthia Bluenscottish Ross | Scoop.it

Leaders' primary objective is to empower others to make decisions and take actions that are aligned with the organization’s vision, purpose, and strategy. These nuances are the softer side of leadership, beyond the technical skills that you have already mastered.

 

Leadership is the "eighth wonder of the world." It is better seen and felt than defined and said. It’s easy to intellectualize, but elusive to actualize.

 

The world’s most impactful leaders in all arenas, from business to government, understand the paradox that although leadership starts with the leader, it’s never about the leader. This wisdom should be emulated and applied by everyone who aspires to leadership.
