How to Believe in Yourself and Become a Charismatic Leader
Practical skills to cope with psychological complexes and develop self-confidence
Lesson 1. Insecurity and self-doubt: what are the causes, and how do we overcome it?
We will explore how self-doubt is formed. You will understand how an insignificant childhood event can interfere with job interviews, work, and even dating. You will learn how to recognize “self-doubt” in yourself and within those around you. You will receive a checklist to increase your confidence and productivity, along with the video lesson.
Lesson 2. Working with fears and negative experiences
This lesson will help us learn to work with our fears and negative experiences. We will figure out how to transform our negative experience, at first glance, into positive energy and to benefit from it. You will learn how to recognize your problems and to talk about them.

Also included will be a list of exercises to do before a public appearance, as well as a checklist for recovering from any failures.
Lesson 3. Managing emotions
We will learn to manage our emotions and remain efficient, even under severe stress. There are 6 methods of self-regulation: from simple breathing control, to radical self-orders, as well as techniques for maintaining high performance and behavior strategies in conflict situations. In addition to the lesson, there are techniques for the development of your emotional intelligence.
Lesson 4. Sensitivity: what it is, how it works, and where to apply it
Let's talk about sensitivity — some people have an increased susceptibility to both positive and negative external stimuli. You will learn that “environmentally friendly” sensitive people are sensitive and attentive, but are not prone to depression and emotional burnout. We will combine the information we learned through exercises from additional materials. We also prepared instructions for empathy development for the students of the course.
Lesson 5. Charisma: how it works, where to apply and how to develop
We will consider the signs of a charismatic person and leader. We will look at how charisma works and how to develop it in yourself. You might be surprised, but charisma is not an innate trait; it can and should be developed. As always, at the end of the lesson you will find practical exercises that will help to consolidate the theoretical knowledge gained. Additional materials include 8 exercises for charisma training and a checklist with the qualities of a charismatic personality.

In the lesson, we will show you a step-by-step plan for changing your image and do several visualization techniques. In the additional materials there are 12 life hacks for the development of self-confidence, as well as templates for special “boards” - they will help to transform negative into positive, as well as find sources of energy and optimism.
Lesson 7. Non-verbal methods of self-presentation
You will learn all about non-verbal communication. We will divide poses and gestures into 3 categories and consider each of them in order to learn how to establish trust without words with other people. You will learn to literally read the lips, eyes, and eyebrows of another person. You will learn how the shape of the wrinkles on the forehead speaks of suffering or surprise, and the direction of the lips can show contempt. In the additional materials you will find checklists for public speaking events and how to prepare for them, non-verbal communication methods, as well as a cheat sheet with tips on how to engage the audience.

The additional materials have a lot of useful things - a checklist of a convincing person, as well as mistakes that interfere with your communication.
