“Charisma is an authentic power that captivates the hearts and minds of others.”

Nikki Owen, Founder of The Charisma Connection Pathway


According to Harvard Business Review and the University of Lausanne, Charismatic leaders are 68% more effective and build high levels of engagement. Nikki Owen, Founder of The Charisma Connection has devoted over two decades to the study of charisma and believes that it cannot be taught from a behavioural perspective.

Using tools, processes and techniques that are at the forefront of leadership development, Nikki Owen enables individuals to reconnect with the charisma that is innate within all of us.

The Charisma Connection pathway is a modular leadership development programme designed to create powerful behavioural change in the workplace.

 “WOW! Something completely different. Pushes you to engage in new experiences.”

Martin King, Head of Relationship Management, RBS


This high impact programme for Leaders, Talent and High Potentials is designed to activate authentic charisma to improve impact, influence and personal presence. Attendees improve their leadership performance and find it easier to engage others, improve teamwork and inspire a collaborative culture.

The Charisma Model is the overarching process throughout the programme and is based on neuroscience to gently retrain the brain for greater emotional intelligence.


“Rated as our highest leadership intervention – life changing.” Terri Bailey, HR Director, Virgin Holidays


Learning transfer

Harvard Business Review looked at why leadership development training fails based on 30 years of training effectiveness research. The challenge is how to take that which is taught and ensure that training becomes ‘operationalised’ into the workplace.

The Charisma Connection pathway is aligned with The 70-20-10 Model and uses a cloud-based software platform that wraps charismatic development into relevant tasks and activities over an extended time. As the platform guides the leader through the pathway they are supported by regular mentoring that can be delivered from the organisation’s internal resources or externally.


“Highly recommended to any organisation with a forward thinking leadership agenda.”

Jenifer Richmond, Group HR Director, National Express
