Charisma: Charm, Poise and Eloquence

Charisma is a key ingredient to present yourself and your offer successfully in conversations and presentations
Charisma - Karsten Noack Coaching & Training Berlin

Why bothering about charisma?


Charisma is the quality of being able to attract, charm and influence other people. Some of us may be quieter, perhaps relying more on their charm than their words to influence others. Learn how to use body language, voice, behavior for your overall appearance. Learn how to design your desired effect on people.

The more one considers charisma as a technique, the less someone has of it.

Karsten Noack



Standing out and being counted is not just an advantage. It is a necessity. You are your own brand and, unless you learn how to shine, you’ll be left behind.

Whether you are looking to get a promotion, become a better leader, master public speaking, build your business, sell more, improve your love life, social life and your networking skills, you need to be more effective at engaging people – you need to be more effective making an impact on others. Charisma is a must. And here’s the good news: You can learn it.




Sync your personality with your message


A classic situation: you prepared your presentation for several weeks but you only get an unenthusiastic applause at the end of it because everyone’s looking at you as if you’ve just spoken Gibberish? Or, if we’re being honest,  was it that the presentation style was a bit stiff and it didn’t really engage and move your audience?… or is that blue suit you’re wearing too blue?

Why is it not enough just to know your subject in order to be successful?

Even if you are one of the experts in your field and your statements are cast-iron – what impressions do you leave in discussions, negotiations or presentations? Your body language, voice, the manner of speaking, behavior — so many aspects are involved and influence how you are perceived by others.




With immediate effect — what I offer


A compelling charisma is not a matter of luck, but the result of good preparation and regular practice. As much as I’d like to be able to take the shiest, most introvert person and make them into a Hollywood star, charisma is, however, not a technique or a product you can just acquire. It takes training and is about working with your own potential and strengths. And this is where I excel! I can:

  • maximize your personal charisma
  • help you to be more confident
  • train your verbal skills, your elocution, your voice
  • show you how to use your body language to advantage
  • how to remain authentic
  • how to develop your leadership skills, natural authority, assertiveness, and presence
  • how to present yourself and your ideas, products, and services in a successful convincing way


With my help, you will then stand out from the crowd and even if you have forgotten something for that presentation or meeting – who cares? You’ll be assertive and confident enough to be able to handle anything thrown at you.

The truth about abundance

Abundance is one of those things that many people desire. How about you?
It is such a cliche, but it is true: money cannot buy happiness. It can influence happiness since it can afford us necessities, a comfortable lifestyle, and opportunities that may increase our overall life satisfaction. But money, in itself, is not the abundance we seek.
