Authentic Charisma Coaching
I am delighted to be delivering the highly effective
and thoroughly researched programme
Numerous studies and many different credible sources, show that charismatic leaders outperform their non-charismatic peers by an average of 68%, (Harvard Business Review 2012).
Nikki Owen has dedicated over 30 years to the study of authentic charisma.
Her own research into the link between authentic charisma and engagement with 150 business leaders which revealed that authentic charisma increased a leader’s ability to engage by an average of 19%.
Full Potential Group have worked collaboratively with Owen’s methodology to create a high impact leadership development coaching solution.
Further research identified in Owen’s book – Charismatic to the Core identifies additional advantages for an organisation wanting to deliver better results, faster. Authentically charismatic leaders are:
• More effective when leading change within an organisation
• Better equipped to build a collaborative culture even when organisations are going through re-structuring
• Build a growth rather than a survival mindset for optimum performance
• More resilient and possess enhanced mental toughness
• 60% more effective
• Build higher levels of workforce engagement
• Able to inspire creative-thinking and an entrepreneurial attitude
But what is authentic charisma?
According to Owen and her research with 2663 organisation’s globally:
“Charisma is an authentic power that captivates the hearts and minds of others.” Regardless of whether a leader is introverted or extroverted the vital component to charisma is the ability to be totally authentic. You can’t teach authentic charisma using a behavioural based approach, because if those 'pasted on' charismatic behaviours are out of alignment with the true authentic person they will appear superficial, fake and inauthentic.
“This was rated as our highest leadership development intervention during the 10 years I was at Virgin Holidays. Described as life changing.”
Terri Bailey, Director of Performance & Engagement, Virgin Holidays
At this point the leader is accessing their highest performing state. This is when they become authentically charismatic.
This is why you can’t develop authentic charisma by working at a behavioural level – it’s too superficial and not sustainable. When blocks and barriers are removed each leader immediately experiences a transformation – an elevation within their leadership capability...
The Charisma Model shows that by developing self- esteem, sensory awareness, the individual’s vision and their driving force, the leader’s energy builds a growth mindset. This reduces their protective walls, often shown as resistance and disengagement. Immediately the individual elevates their performance.
This multi-level programme blends face-to-face charisma coaching sessions designed to work directly with the leader’s own charismatic potential. They are equipped with ground-breaking tools and processes contained within a simple online pathway to ensure that there is learning transfer and practical ways to improve team performance.
There is a mini 360 team survey used to demonstrate the impact gained from this programme across 18 KPIs that show ROI. The leader can also assess the transformation within their own mindset by completing a charisma perception tool.
Informal learning resources are housed within the online pathway that are designed to create change at many levels:
Cellular level – transforms cellular function from survival to growth.
Unconscious level – transforms beliefs by changing negative programming into empowering programming that supports the leader’s success.
Emotional level – develops a stronger connection with the ‘felt’ sense so that the leader becomes more heart centric and self-aware.
Behavioural level – because of the transformation at the above three levels this changes behaviours into those that inspire high performance in self and others.

What’s different about the Authentic Charisma Coaching approach?
It works mainly with the unconscious mind to ensure depth of transformation. Many of the psychological programmes that we run as adults are formed in childhood and are no longer helpful or actively sabotage our performance. We can resolve these limitations by becoming more aware of how to work in collaboration with the unconscious mind.
It encourages the coachee to operate from their ‘felt’ sense rather than their thinking mode. Every emotion held within the body contains a message – a raisin d’etre for being. Noticing where we are holding emotions in the body enables us to gather useful information. You can’t ‘think’ your way around your body – you have to feel and for many people this requires them to switch into a different sensory operating mechanism.
It involves working with an individual’s energetic field. A continual demonstration of the impact that thoughts, perceptions, beliefs and judgements have on energy. Naturally promotes mindfulness and an expanded awareness.
“The results are immediate. The impact of the charisma coaching occurs at a deep, sub-conscious level where change happens naturally, almost easily because something shifts from within.”
Kate Woodward, Executive Coach
