For example one of the techiniques given is "conscious mirroring". You mirror the other person's behavior like their body posture, how they hold their head, how they place their feet. Also adapt your voice to theirs in speed, pitch and intonation. When you consciously mirror someone's body language, you activate deep instincts of trust and liking. This technique can get them to pick up your dropped items, biy your products or give you a better deal. Mirroring even makes you more attractive.
If you apply the changes mentioned into this book, you will notice the difference the very moment you finish the book, i have been seeing it, i had a presentation last week and i used the tips Olivia advices and boy, it does work. Highly recommended.
" With repeated practices we can create new patterns in our brain"👍👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👍👍👍👍🙏🙏

Yet I’m frequently involved marketing events and have to give presentations to large crowds.
So I can only dream of having the charisma of Obama or JFK.
At the same time there is little hope for me as I rarely read self-help books mostly because they are generally poorly-written by self-obsessed authors and teach me trivial things that I already know.
This book is not so different. Yet it places the myth of charisma in a decent perspective.
In the end I should be glad I picked up the book and worked through it. As it is somewhat helpful, it teaches you important elements of charisma and how to be more mindful of that.
Now I fill the room a little bit more with my presence. I have gained a slightly more magnetic personality. And feel I’m better able to steer my daily group meetings in my desired direction. Moreover.. my power over the other-sex has dramatically increased! haha.. but from a very low level, as it was non-existent before.
The recommendations aren't merely a sticking plaster over the 'real' (uncharismatic) you; but rather help you peel off negative habits like drifting off when speaking with people, or holding onto resentment; thus exposing the real charismatic You.
Famous characters' charisma is discussed and some have more or less of the three main foundations for charisma, so there is plenty of flexibility to develop what is natural to you.
Overall, I can't recommend this book enough.
