In-Person Training to Take Your Leadership, Networking, and Professional Skills to the Next Level
If you’ve ever felt awkward or out of place at a event–or if you freeze up during conversations…
Let me tell you something: outgoing, confident guys weren’t born with charisma.
Nope, they spent time (sometimes years!) mastering social skills to attract and connect with high quality people.
We know because we’ve coached a lot of these men.
And every single one of them came to us with social anxiety issues we’ve helped them overcome.
Johnny Dzubak and AJ Harbinger are experts at social engineering, networking and relationship building.
Over the course of the past ten years, Johnny and AJ have developed a proprietary curriculum with a series of interactive exercises to put leadership and business networking principles in action.
Business Bootcamp Members will gain the following skillset:
- Leadership: Lead and inspire your colleagues and teammates to achieve new goals and deliver breakthrough results.
- Command Respect: Naturally gain the attention, respect and curiosity of those around you, allowing to you direct the momentum of the group.
- Read a Room: Instantly scan a room and understand the dynamics at play in any social or professional situation.
- Character Analysis: Assess people’s confidence, competence, presence and social awareness before they even know you’re paying attention.
- Communication Analysis: Learn to read between the lines of communication and understand why people are really saying what they’re saying.
- Negotiation Techniques: Develop subtle (and not-so-subtle) persuasion tactics to influence decision-making and guide people toward your desired outcomes.
- Conflict Resolution: Resolve conflicts in meetings, between colleagues, or in any social environment with empathy and confidence.
- Emotional Intelligence: Identify and destroy negative thoughts and behaviors (including neediness, approval seeking, hesitance, and self-doubt).
We look forward to working with your team to build their professional skills and confidence.
Week-Long Residential Program
HOW YOUR EXPERIENCE WILL BE GUIDED
The Art of Charm Business Bootcamp is a revolutionary school created by a team of social dynamics experts that have taken over a thousand guys from ordinary to extraordinary. This means you’ll have mastered the most tried and successful strategies upon completion of the program.
Benefiting from our years of research and expertise, you’ll improve your skills at a rapid pace. You will develop a philosophy of pride and professionalism that unlocks the tools to transform your life. You’ll master this philosophy in a practical, immersive environment.
Imagine having no fear on your path to achieve those professional goals, meeting and connecting with the people you want, and building that successful career you’ve been striving for. To do this you need to become a better man. That’s where we come in.
From your body language to your interpersonal dealings, you will explore every facet of your social skills – then adjust, adapt and transform it so you can return to your life with a new confidence and focus – and you’ll have the support of the AoC team and your peers the entire time.
PRINCIPLES OF SUCCESS
Successful business is built on the relationships we create and nurture. At the beginning of our program, you’ll learn our critical Interaction Map, which will help you track your progress in any conversation and give you a framework for taking control of your interactions.
The Map, along with an extensive suite of tools and frameworks, helps eliminate the ”blind spots” all men have in their professional lives. You’ll identify these blind spots, then replace them with a keen understanding of yourself and those around you. This is the kind of self-awareness that allows you to make new connections, create lasting partnerships, and connect deeply and authentically with those around you.
CONFIDENCE, INFLUENCE & AUTHENTICITY
Our instructors train you how to recognize and handle different personality types, develop engaging body language, use your voice and visual cues, read and interpret nonverbal signals, and – just as importantly – understand what not to do in many situations.
There are the social and psychological foundations that we help you address. An essential part of our program is to strip away the insecurities and social programming that hide your true self, allowing the best version of you to take center stage. This confidence is the foundation of any dynamic professional.
By translating Emotional Intelligence into a logical process that anyone can master, we help you discover how to be yourself – your true, authentic self – without apology or hesitation.
When you graduate from the program, you will have a rich playbook from which to draw for the rest of your life.
PREPARATION AND FOLLOW UP
Finally, we are obsessed with making you great. To that end, we include detailed preparation, tons of science-based background material, and personalized follow-up coaching to make sure you get the most out of our program and enjoy your success for years to come.
First, you will be introduced to your own personal Business Bootcamp coach, who will learn about your professional goals, interests and questions before you even walk through our doors. Each experience will be tailored to ensure the goals of your professional path and company’s goals in your growth are achieved.
After the program, you are connected with alumni from a large group of professionals who provide support while you implement these tools into your business.
That’s how we guarantee our results. The program is designed to help you maintain momentum for years to come.

What Others Say About What You’re Going To Experience
I’ve come to realize that the best investment you can make is not in a house, a car or any other material thing, but in yourself. And that’s what a Bootcamp is.
It’s an investment in your social skills, in self-reflection and the ability to open up, to name just a few.
The good news is it’s a heap of fun, you will meet cool people and the instructors genuinely care about seeing you succeed because after all, they went through the same process.
Sure you will be challenged and pushed out of your comfort zone, but that’s all part of the fun and adds to the feeling of exhilaration when you begin to achieve your goals!

I'm skeptical of all the self-help stuff out there. At The Art of Charm however, we see how the principles really work in practice. I've taken thousands of hours of training and nothing can compete with The Art of Charm. I recommend this to anyone who wants a leg-up on being more effective, especially guys in transition.
Before going through AoC I was on the way to leave for the Navy. I was mentally running away from the life I had because after finishing college I couldn’t get the level of work I hoped for and expected, and was scared.
Now 6 months after Bootcamp I have a new job and will have grown my annual income by over 60%. This one aspect alone made Bootcamp worth it for me. Both during Bootcamp and since I have had more consistent success than ever in my life.
