Very interesting concept!
The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs... There were many parallels; however, the progression of charisma is clearly visible when applied to Steve Jobs.
Not very charismatic
I felt like the beginning was a little too graphic for my taste... A less harrowing example would've been preferred.
There was nothing wrong with Lisa's voice it was rather how mellow her voice was that contrasted with the charismatic subject of the book, I'm sure she does great on other subjects!
Not sure!! I would have loved to have a workbook so that I could get the most out of it.
I have already applied some of the insights and it works. I have people telling me how warm I am and they keep asking me if I am the manager for my sales region.
Get it and follow the advice.
There is a science and practice of charisma, and this book makes charisma learnable and usable for anyone willing to invest the time and attention. Highly recommended.
The book is about interacting warmly with others, but includes other self-help topics about controlling yourseful in difficult situations. I don't plan to follow the author's step by step plan, but the book really made me think about several things I can change about myself. I plan to reread it more thoroughly and do some of the exercises.
The only negative I have is that it is a little padded with information and exercises that are found in most self-help books, but there is enough on-topic to think about to make this a recommended listen.
This book is a game changer. I've made it a point to continuously study every chapter and perform every exercise outlined in this book. I am beginning to uncover the charismatic behaviors and states that have always been a part of me. Bravo to Ms. Cabane on her excellent work. I'm absolutely amazed!
This would have made a better audio book if it were written for audio - it is not. This is a much better book for visual engagement. W
The book may well be fine. It is not a good audio book.
Entrepreneur using Audible to fill the endless hours spent traversing this wonderful land until Google finishes their car!
Ms. Cobane's understanding of the topic is deep and insightful. She breaks down Charisma to small steps that are easy to understand, from visualization of alternative scenarios, zooming your focus out, to the timing of your speech. Love it. I listen to this book every few months to keep the tactics fresh in my mind and reinforce the habits. Great book.
The print version would be more useful. There are exercises that would be good to have access to. The chapters in the audio version don't mesh with the book either so it's difficult to navigate.
