OVERVIEW

Each person is born ethnocentric, or believing that other people and events revolve around them which is generally true for the first few years of a child's life. The focus of activity for a growing child is inward. 

Some people carry this inward, self-focus into adulthood. These people, so overly concerned with their own well-being in a self-centred way, never learn the secrets of influence. Successful people, who want to have the power of persuasion, turn their circle of activity and interest outward.

They expand their interests and focus to be as conscious of the people around them as they are of themselves. They develop what we call, charisma.

This charisma gives them tremendous power in building dynamic teams and in interactions with colleagues. 

As you develop charisma with the points taught in this webinar, you will become a Discretionary Effort Leader.
