Usually many of these specific qualities must be present within a single individual for the person to be considered highly charismatic by the public and their peers.
Others disagree with this assertion and maintain that it is an inborn trait, or acquired through growing up, and that it cannot be learned, taught, or 'gained' at will. Charisma can also be used in a negative way The concept of charisma translates across all cultures. While the origins of the word and usage of charisma imply Christian religious connections, this mainly reflects how historically people sought to explain intangible concepts. As the world has become more able to explain things scientifically and factually, associations between charisma and godly gifts have become largely obsolete, except among strongly religious people.
Similarly, as with leadership, notions that charismatic qualities are inborn are not easy to substantiate. While the specialised approach to the development of charisma is relatively recent, the generalised or related approach to the development of charisma is extremely old, although in such cases it would not have been labelled 'charisma'. This perhaps explains why historically charismatic people have tended to be actors, stage performers, and leaders. One could argue that these people have become successful in their fields because of charismatic appeal, which is to an extent true, but charisma here is mostly an effect, rather than a cause.

The main point is that charismatic people tend to come from these backgrounds, and there is a reason for this. Each of the three words contains several implications and an underpinning principle:. Charisma is not a matter of fame and celebrity. Charisma is definitely not something which comes automatically to every famous person. We can all think of countless famous people and celebrities who have zero charisma.
Many famous people have charisma, but fame is not what makes charisma. Charisma is first a learned or acquired capability. It is then logically an enabling quality, which in many cases is then self-fuelling through experience and the conscious or unconscious refinement of techniques, and the growth of confidence self, and others in relation to the charismatic person. A general or related approach to developing charisma has long been present in the schooling of actors and stage performers. Aspects of charisma have also featured for centuries in the teaching of public speaking. Leadership training has also for many years included personal development which tends to advance some of the key elements of charisma, but none of these various sorts of training traditionally focus on developing charisma specifically.
As much as any other reason this is because charisma has not until recently been regarded as a quality that is attainable and useful for 'ordinary' people. Among those who've attempted to analyse charisma in terms of measurable and 'developable' elements is British personal development expert Nikki Owen, who has built a behavioural learning model around the concept of charisma.
She has applied similar innovation, rigour and passion to her latest work on charisma. Many and various other models of charisma exist, which testify to the growing acceptance that charisma is not 'God-given' or inborn; instead it is a behavioural quality that anyone can develop.
Note this model also states that everyone is able to develop charismatic power. Nikki Owen has studied charisma for many years in the context of personal development.
Her particular skill is creating effective learning methods, and she brings this special perspective the challenge of understanding and developing personal charisma. As we know, there are many and various definitions of charisma. However to develop a personal skill or capability - especially a behavioural quality - we need more than a definition. We need measurable elements. We also need benchmarks or standards, and methods of measuring actual levels of performance in each element, before and after intervention development or learning activities.
Most challengingly, we need the methods of improving the elemental capabilities which together make up the whole behavioural quality that we are attempting to develop. Nikki Owen's model seems to have these components. Nikki Owen defines charisma by way of five significant personal attributes, summarised briefly here. Her development model is able to measure and develop each of these elements.
As such she seems to have devised a logical, predictable and reliable way to understand, measure and develop personal charisma. Charismatic people have high self-esteem - which can be particular to an environment. This conveys confidence and authenticity. When you have high self-esteem you are relaxed about exposing your true self. Levels of self-esteem can vary with situation, so this element is one of several which is contextual. Self-esteem, and thereby charisma, can vary according to situation.
Charismatic people have an underlying sense of purpose, a set of values - principles important to them - which drive their decisions and actions. Values and purpose help drive and motivate behaviour consistently and strongly, which others see to be dynamic and enthusiastic. A strong driving force can also be contextual. Many people are strongly driven and charismatic in a certain direction or field, but not in others.
Charismatic people are aware of their own feelings and the feelings and moods of others.
