Cory Booker. That's a guy with wattage. And that's what's helping make his election to the U.S. Senate his to lose. But, anyone can have wattage. And anyone can put this on the grid for themselves. Here is Lesson 1.
Listen. That always established presence. That wattage is multipled exponenentially in this era when few pay attention, never mind listen.
The first step in listening is not talking. Sure, you can start off with an open-ended question. Or even a brief comment on what someone else says. Then you listen with such intensity that it crackles. You nod your head. The person continues to talk. Others pick up on your pull force. They wander over. They want to be heard.
You now have wattage. The next step will be how to differentiate it from other's wattage. Watch this blog for that.
