Olivia Fox Cabane is dispelling The Charisma Myth in her latest book: Find out how charisma can be learnt!

Charisma Myth
Do you go completely unnoticed when you enter a room?
Do people get bored talking to you?
Does your body language tell people that you are lacking in confidence?

If any of these statements strike a chord or you just feel that you want to be a more charismatic person then do not fret as help is at hand. In her new book, The Charisma Myth, Olivia Fox Cabane not only dispels the myth that charisma is inherent, but she also provides you with practical skills to master the hitherto elusive trait. Charisma CAN be taught, and this book is your guide.

Charisma can be a huge asset if you’re applying for a job, improving your relationships, or leading other people. The Charisma Myth shows you how to become more influential, more persuasive, and more inspiring. Soon you’ll be able to move through a room and have people say: ‘Wow, who’s that?’

Many people believe that charisma is unchangeable – you either have it or you don’t. But that’s simply not true. This groundbreaking, bestselling book reveals how charismatic behaviour can be learned by anyone.

Olivia Fox Cabane helps some of the world’s best-known people become more charismatic. Here she breaks charisma down into its fundamental components, revealing the secrets to how it works. Improving your charisma doesn’t mean transforming your personality: it’s about adopting a series of practices that suit you. So what are you waiting for?

To find out more check out here recent feature in the Daily Mail where she gives a small insight into her masterclass on how to stand out from the crowd: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/you/article-2385418/Charm-school-How-charisma-kick-start.html

‘Until I encountered Olivia Fox Cabane, I’d naively believed charisma was an intangible, magical aura…a couple of hours can transform a reasonably personable person into someone magnetic’ (The Sunday Telegraph)

‘If you are interested in increasing your ability to be charismatic, this book will give you direct skills to use’ (Psychology Today)
