4 Ways to Improve Your Charisma for Your Next Emcee Event

Emcee Singapore: Contrary to popular belief, charisma isn’t something that you either have or you don’t.

Science has shown that becoming more charismatic is about adopting charismatic habits. This means that anyone can learn how to “light up a room”, boost their X-factor, and have that “it” quality.

Charisma can help you with all of the following:

  • Be more successful at being an emcee Singapore emcee;
  • Get your message through to your audience;

Boosting your charisma will help you in just about any life situation. After all, attraction is a powerful tool. It can help you to get what you want without having to resort to other means. Below you’ll find 4 main ways to improve your charisma.

 

1) Be Present

Charisma determines how quickly your audience at your emcee Singapore emcee event will “like you, trust you, and want to be led by you”. There are three pillars of a charismatic personality. These are: presence, power, and warmth. Let’s start with the first of these – presence.

Being present is about being fully in the moment. There’s something magnetic about someone who is giving all of their focus and attention to the here and now. On the other hand, it’s off-putting when you’re talking to someone and they seem distracted, like their mind is somewhere else.

To be more charismatic, focus your mental and emotional energy on the person or audience that you’re talking to. In addition, ask clarifying questions; don’t interrupt them when they’re speaking: and listen to them fully, instead of thinking about what you’re going to say next. Apply this to your audience as well, really listen to the responses that they may shout out!

 

2) Show Warmth

You transmit warmth to others when you make them feel like you care about them. That is, you make them feel like you genuinely like them.

This is hard to fake. In order to be able to show warmth toward others, you have to develop warmth within.

Right now you may be thinking: “But I’m not really a ‘people’ person. I don’t think I can be warm towards others”. The good news is that warmth can be developed. Here are some things you can do to develop warmth:

  • Feel fellowship toward others; after all, we’re all in the same boat. You can practice this at your emcee Singapore emcee event, practice feeling fellowship towards your audience.
  • Develop empathy – put yourself in the shoes of the other person or audience and ask yourself what they may be feeling.
  • Feel curious about other people. Why do they see the world the way do? What makes them tick?
  • Tell yourself that there’s something that you really need to know, and that the person sitting in front of you has been sent to tell you what it is.

In order to convey warmth to others, do the following:

  • In almost any situation, think of yourself as the host, and try to make others comfortable; put them at ease.
  • Use your voice – speak in a soft, rich tone.
  • Give sincere compliments.
  • Use your eyes to transmit kindness; you can do this by softening your gaze.

 

3) Tell Stories

One verbal charisma tactic is to tell personal stories and anecdotes to make your message more engaging and to help your listeners connect with you. Charismatic people are good story tellers. You can use this tactic even on stage at your emcee Singapore emcee event. You can start the event by telling a story relating to the event you are emceeing.

Someone who uses the tactic of story-telling often is President Obama. His speeches are often peppered heavily with stories and personal anecdotes. This makes the audience relate to what he’s saying and identify with him.

For example, when he called on parents to toughen up on their kids and exhort them to get good grades in school, he shared that this is what he did with his then eleven-year-old daughter, Malia. Here’s the story:

  • Malia got a 73 on a science test.
  • She was upset because her parents had always told her that the goal was to get 90 or above on any test.
  • Obama sat down with Malia and they came up with a game plan on how she could do better the next time.
  • And it worked. On her next science test, she got a 95.

Obama was telling the audience: “I encourage my kids to do well in school, and this is what I’m asking you to do, as well.”

 

4) Use Nonverbal Tactics

Three nonverbal charisma tactics that you can use in order to become more charismatic for your emcee Singapore emcee events are:

  • Using body gestures.
  • Using facial expressions—being emotionally expressive.
  • Keeping an animated voice.
