10 months agoBe authoritative.
In charismatic leaders, their authority and leadership skills seem natural. This gives confidence and peace to others. The leader, unable to look authoritatively, it will be difficult to force people to follow oneself.

Como la mayoría de las cosas, es más fácil de decirlas que volverlas realidad; pero con pequeños cambios progresivos se podría lograr, siempre y cuando dichos cambios sean genuinos y voluntarios.
