Do You Have the X-Factor?

TalkShop X Factor TipsIn Math, “x” represents the unknown. Fittingly, the term “X-factor” is that indefinable quality that sets a person’s uniqueness apart from everyone else. Celebrities in politics, entertainment, business, and sports are described as having the X-factor. We refer to the X-factor when talking about how awed we are by our favorite professor, an inspiring boss, or some good friends who attract our attention.

What defines the X-factor? Can this be developed? How does one acquire it? Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO explains, “X-factor is all about having the charisma that goes beyond just good looks. In entertainment, it is the ability to engage people – that can be both positive and negative. It is what attracts a following, while repelling or challenging others, as well. The X-factor is what makes applicants survive the selection process, and eventually emerge as the choice.

Viesca adds, “The good news is that X-factor can be developed.“ She shares the following tips:

1. Find a good workplace where you make a good fit. The right environment will make you thrive, no matter what challenges are thrown your way.

2. Know yourself, and align your values with the company’s. Be mindful of where you can adjust and what you will not compromise.

3. Identify and cultivate your strengths. Be the very best in what you do.

4. Develop your emotional quotient (EQ). Look for the good and meaningful in the situations you are in.

5. Enhance your personality. Attend to your emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

6. Open yourself to new ideas. Be brave in exploring new horizons. Learn to think out of the box.
