223: Master the Secret Language of Charismatic Communication with Vanessa Van Edwards

By March 29, 2022February 3rd, 2023No Comments

Have you ever watched someone and thought, “Wow, that person has charisma?” How does that person seem so confident, so effortless, so connected, when I just seem so awkward?

In every stage of my life I’ve met people that seem to have that ability to just own the room. People trust them. People like them. People want to do business with them or be friends with them.

It’s not just confidence, it’s charisma. But what even is charisma? Is it a cool connectedness? Is it social grace? Is it persuasion? And how can we be more charismatic if we’re not even sure how to define it?

Well, turns out, there’s a lot we can do. There are cues we can pick up on and put out to be that charismatic person that seems to attract people and opportunities.

That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Vanessa Van Edwards. Vanessa is Lead Investigator at Science of People. She is the bestselling author of Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People. And More than 50 million people watch her engaging YouTube tutorials and TEDx Talk.

Her much anticipated new book Cues was just released March 1st, and man it’s good.
