An Overview of the Star Power Model

Today is Wednesday, so normally this post would be on outstanding performance.  However, I thought that in today’s post, I would do a recap of the ideas in the Star Power Model:

·        Self Confidence

·        Personal Impact

·        Outstanding Performance

·        Communication Skills

·        Interpersonal Competence

The May/June issue of Success Magazine has a sidebar article that recaps the 19 Qualities of Success presented by Herb Greenberg and Patrick Sweeny in their book Succeed on Your Own Terms.  All of these qualities can be tied to one or more of the points on the Star Power model.  Here are the 19 qualities and the point on the Star Power Model to which they apply.
