Marissa Mayer (Former CEO/Yahoo!)Proud of our friend and neighbor Olivia Fox Cabane - her book 'The Charisma Myth' launched today and is already #122 of all books on Amazon. It went into its second printing even before launch!
Laura Lang (CEO/Time Inc.)Olivia Fox Cabane offers hands-on advice and a practical guide to humanizing leaders without comprising integrity or authority. She focused on the ‘it’ factors that can make a real difference.
Nicky Cullen (Writer, Anxiety Coach)Personal development is a little different: Mark Manson's The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck, The Charisma Myth by Olivia Fox Cabane, and The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins. All these teach invaluable life lessons with added entertainment in The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck. If I was to write an article listing the top three books to help with anxiety that don't have anxiety in the title, these would be them.
Dr. Monali Y. Desai (Cardiologist & Founder/If We Were Family)Currently, my favorite business book is The Charisma Myth (Olivia Fox Cabane) because I feel it has so many small but impactful takeaways about improving how you communicate with others, I try to reread it once a year.
What if charisma could be taught?
The charisma myth is the idea that charisma is a fundamental, inborn quality—you either have it (Bill Clinton, Steve Jobs, Oprah) or you don’t. But that’s simply not true, as Olivia Fox Cabane reveals. Charismatic behaviors can be learned and perfected by anyone.
Drawing on techniques she originally developed for Harvard and MIT, Cabane breaks charisma down into its components. Becoming more charismatic doesn’t mean transforming your fundamental personality. It’s about adopting a series of specific practices that fit in with the personality you already have.
The Charisma Myth shows you how to become more influential, more persuasive, and more inspiring.
