The odds of creating a relationship with someone, whether it’s business or personal, often comes down to first impression. Humans are hard-wired to have first impressions of each other; often, we’re not even conscious of doing so.
But we can consciously shift our behaviors to create a positive first impression, which can lead to deeper, more meaningful connections with others.
Joining us for episode 124 to talk about how is Jordan Harbinger from The Art of Charm.
More About This Show
If you took two people and compared how they entered a room, you most certainly would make assessments and create your own impression of who that person is, how successful they are and whether or not you’d like to get to know them. And Jordan Harbinger says we all do this, it's human nature.
Because it's part of who we are, we can also use this to our advantage. We can all learn how to create great first impressions, and build on those impressions for stronger, more satisfying relationships.
Helping people make the most of these tendencies is what The Art of Charm is all about.
The business' origins are a direct result of his interest in the self-help arena. He read everything he could get his hands on and then began interviewing the authors behind these books. Sadly, he found many of them to lack authenticity and true personal charm. Many of them were flat out manufactured personalities, drawn up to pitch a concept and sell books. But he continued to read and meet with the authors he liked until he found who was the real deal and the secrets to connection, communication and authentic relationship rapport.
And it was from those conversations, with the authors who walked their talk, that The Art of Charm was born.
You'll also discover things like:
- Why your "it" is never "it".
- Jordan’s trick with a pencil to get you out of a bad mood.
- How to shift from “situational confidence” to confidence in every situation.
- Is there a Renaissance resurgence for men?
- The ATM Receipt Attraction project.
- And loads more!
Despite a great job on Wall Street, Jordan continued to grow the podcast’s audience. With his and his business partner’s fair share of hustle, Jordan grew The Art of Charm’s audience so large that Sirius (now Sirius XM Radio) took notice.
And it was a good thing they did. When the real estate bubble burst, Jordan lost his Wall Street gig and poured everything he had into the podcast. There was such a high demand from their podcasting audience that they grew a coaching curriculum and developed a residential program in his Manhattan loft. Today The Art of Charm has multiple coaching programs, books, in-person trainings as well as thrice-weekly podcasts.
Clearly The Art of Charm isn't just another smarmy podcast teaching guys how to pick up women (ala VH1’s The Pick-Up Artist).
In fact, it’s far more than that. It’s about losing your insecurities and establishing habits that build powerful personal beliefs that serve you. At its core, The Power of Charm is about becoming more authentic in all of your relationships, from business to personal. And it applies to both men AND women.
