Gravitas

“Today, anyone who has presence, who attracts attention when he or she enters a room, is said to possess charisma . . . . Their charisma is mysterious and inexplicable, never obvious. They have unusual confidence. They have a gift—often a smoothness with language-that makes them stand out from the crowd. They express a vision.” – Robert Greene

Gravitas or charisma can be learned and honed through deliberate focus and practice of a few of your natural personality traits. Our well-validated and reliable psychological assessments will highlight these strengths and direct your attention to those you can most quickly and easily develop for your own desired results.

What is gravitas? Few people have it, that much is for sure. Those who possess gravitas seem to be magnetic and have a dignified presence. They feel safe, disarming, and trustworthy to be around. I’ve heard that they come from “good stock.” I suppose that means that those who raised this person are also of good character as well.

These days, even if you didn’t come from “good stock” yourself, you too can focus on and refine the qualities that lie within. Whether you are ignoring certain qualities you have or simply want to become more deliberate with qualities you already realize as personal strengths, we’re here for you. Together, we’ll focus on you, where you are strong, so you can be more deliberate with these, and where you’ll need to be more cautious.

Gravitas was one of the Roman virtues, along with pietas, dignitas, and virtus, that were particularly appreciated in leaders. Evidence shows that it was most likely influenced by the Greek virtue of Arete. It may be translated variously as weight, seriousness, dignity, and importance and connotes a certain substance or depth of personality. It also conveys a sense of responsibility and commitment to the task. In the British education system, gravitas was seen as one of the pillars of the moral formation of the English gentleman during the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
