Sharing vulnerability can increase your charisma significantly. Don’t share anything big, just something small. Show that you are human, too.
Think of three or four conversations you’re going to have.
Pick one that has low stakes.
Find a small vulnerability you could share.
Any minor fear, hesitation, concern, or regret.
Before the conversation, do a responsibility transfer.
Read about how to do this in the previous chapters of this book.
Here is one possible example, “You know, I have to tell you…”
Do the responsibility transfer just after you say this.
This will get you back to your comfort zone.
