Power is your perception of your ability to affect the world around you. Whether this be through raw physical power, or large amounts of money, influence, expertise, intelligence, high social status and so forth. We look for clues of power in the person’s appearance, in others’ reaction to that person, but most of all in the person’s demeanor in their body language. . . . The MIT Media Lab was able to predict the outcome of negotiations, sales calls, and business plan pitches with 87% accuracy without listening to a single word of content, only by analyzing the voice fluctuation and the facial expression of the person pitching.

Presence, Olivia says, is the core of charisma. We all recognize when we’re with someone who is distracted and clearly not present. This lack of focus instantly destroys his or her charisma. Think of how you feel when someone looks at his or her cell phone in the middle of a conversation, or glances over your shoulder to see if there is someone more important in the room. Those with presence never do such things. They behave as though you are the only person in the room, and everyone and everything else has evaporated. No one can fake presence, because it’s obvious if a person isn’t fully engaged.

One of the speakers was Sorrel King, who had lost her daughter to a preventable medical error. Her impassioned plea to never let this happen again ignited the audience’s enthusiasm and mobilized them to adopt the six simple practices. This, in turn, saved over one hundred thousand lives. This is an example of a hot cause (saving lives), followed by a cool solution (washing hands).

According to Chip and Dan Heath, coauthors of Made to Stick, there are several core principles for stories that are really compelling (and thus “sticky”). The stories must be easy to understand, have a surprising element, and be both believable and emotionally charged. We’re drawn in by these stories and want to pass them on to others.

Duckworth and her colleagues have also found that grit is strengthened when people are taught that frustration and mistakes are a natural part of the learning process, not signs that you should give up. When I told the students in my class that it was supposed to be challenging to generate one hundred solutions to a problem, they were much more likely to succeed. This simple statement helped build their grit.
