Essay
Answer:

Answer:

Opinion of the fairness of Valu tracker program :
The ValuTracker program is an understandable approach to weeding out the best of the best within a company. For a company to grow and flourish, great leaders are vital. The company has deemed what it believes make a great leader-great work, charisma, and assertiveness-and when it sees those qualities in its employees it makes sense that it would want to foster them.
Also, by giving the ValuTrackers the incentive of a fast track path to higher positions, the company is securing its valuable workforce. If they did not offer this incentive, they could run the risk of losing their best employees.
The ValuTracker program is valid for these two reasons, and fair in that the requirements to become a selected member are achievable by those who are determined.

Answer:

Answer:

Reaction of people when being more charismatic:
Charisma is often times referred to as an "x factor" that people either possess or do not. But the fact of the matter is, the characteristics of charisma can be whittled down into learnable traits. Here are some commonly attributed qualities that create a charismatic persona:
• Strength of personality.
• Having a clear vision.
• Having strong emotions and spreading those to others.
• Creating emotional bonds.
• Comfort in the spotlight.
• Smile and laugh frequently-be more approachable.
After assessing this list and realizing lacking traits, it may be easier to appear more charismatic. However, people may have confused reactions when someone changes their behavior so drastically. Therefore it is advisable to be realistic in adopting new traits, and there should be devotion from within to evolve, or else people may not find it agreeable or believable.
