7 Things You Need to Be More Magnetic

Think of the most engaging people you know. My guess is they're charming, interesting, and make you feel special.

We all want to be perceived that way, don't we? Here are several character traits you should work on if you want to be magnetic and likeable.


By nature children are curious, but we lose much of our inquisitiveness as we age. Yet it's such a vital trait, especially in business. Curiousity drives you to continuously learn about your industry, understand your customers, and create innovative products.

I believe this- especially with curiosity

My favorite people are direct and not afraid to share things about themselves that might even make them look bad. In doing so they convey a sense of humility, honesty, and vulnerability that work to lower people's defenses. If you can do that, you're well on your way to engaging with them.

John Michel's curator insight, May 24, 2013 6:12 AM

Conflicts are an inevitable part of running a small business. In fact, effectively resolving conflicts within your company can actually build a strong and diverse team that will keep fresh ideas and creativity flowing. If everyone agrees with the boss's point of view, your company's direction and efforts will get stale fast. That being said, too much conflict isn't desirable either. To achieve the delicate balance, you need to have the skills to intervene when a healthy debate goes awry.
