"The development of expertise requires coaches who are capable of giving constructive, even painful, feedback.”

The Bottom Line . . . . according to Jack Welch

In a recent Business Week article Jack  said,  "Executive Coaching generally works. The value of course depends on the quality of the coach.  This is a field where there is no specific training and certainly no formal accreditation. And there are some charlatans out there who simply tell you what you want to hear or don't have much feel for leadership, having never done it themselves." He further adds the "Good executive coaches can provide a truly important service. They can look you in the eye and tell you what no one else will, especially if you're the boss."



Charisma: How to Get What you Want from Others

Have you ever noticed why some leaders can enter a room and get instant attention? Perhaps you envy their magnetic style, since they can easily display charm, energy, and presence with others.  They motivate others to take action. They achieve better and quicker results. 

These qualities together are called charisma.  Charisma is the key to greater income, success, and relationships with others.

Research has shown that some lucky people are born with it.  However, charisma can be learned. Leaders can build a more charismatic style with a few simple principles. Leaders with charisma usually influence others to get what they want.   

One of the leader’s biggest obstacles to becoming more charismatic is awareness. Most leaders have no clue about how they are perceived by others.  Some think they are charismatic, but unfortunately lack many of the behaviors needed to increase their charisma.  They simply are unaware of their impact on others.

Top Level Coaching has developed coaching program for leaders that increases charisma. The program's objectives are to:

  • assess the leader’s level of charisma
  • increase awareness of the leader’s impact on others
  • learn to radiate confidence, power and optimism
  • increase interpersonal effectiveness
  • improve skills to build relationships and create rapport
  • get feedback from a professionally trained executive coach
  • determine which behaviors have the greatest potential to increase impact
  • create an development plan with specific exercises to increase charisma.

Here’s how it works:

  • Leader works with one-on-one with an executive coach.  The coach uses an assessment that will help identify leader's level of charisma.
  • Leader completes a 360 assessment that will identify other’s perceptions
  • Coach and Leader will identify which behaviors to focus on.
  • Leader meets with coach once a week either live or an online conference call. Leader will work on key behaviors that will increase effectiveness in high priority areas.
  • The program is a three month course, but can be adapted to meet the participant’s needs. 
  • At the conclusion of the program we will reassess progress and build a long term development plan.

For a limited time, TLC is offering a free confidential online assessment to help determine if you or your leader could increase your charisma.  Call or contact us for the link.
