Communicate Charisma evolved from one simple realisation: Communication is more important than ever, but finding the right training for busy executives is harder than ever.
There’s no shortage of differing styles on offer. Yet many trainers focus exclusively on organising facts into hard lumps of persuasion to be thrown at audiences. Others teach tricks that conceal, rather than reveal the authentic personality behind the polished façade.
With the advent of softer styles of leadership that model emotional intelligence, we believe that traditional styles of media training, presentation coaching or ‘messaging clinics’ cannot supply what more evolved people in business are now looking for. Theatrical training can provide the answer, but most career-minded folk don’t want to face the floodlights.
Communicate Charisma takes a very simple approach: to identify and then strengthen the underlying skills we all possess, and to bring balance and harmony into our communication style by raising self-awareness. We believe that everyone has what it takes. All that’s needed is to map, measure and develop your charisma assets.
