Harvey Specter Confidence Breakdown

Be Confident & Charismatic like Harvey Specter


After in-depth research, I’ve found the keys to unlocking Harvey Specter’s inner confidence and his charisma.


It’s your time to feel and act like Harvey Specter does in the TV drama, Suits.


Let’s begin with the keys to be confident like Harvey Specter…


1. Raise Your Standards:

How you feel on the inside is a consequence of the actions you take each day. No rocket science there. But what many of us do is let ourselves off easy. We go in to make a sale and “hope” that the client will talk to us, giving up too quickly.


And when we get home, we know we should go to the gym, but instead, we sit at home, watching TV, eating Oreos. Harvey Specter, throughout the show, holds himself to a higher standard than his peers.


He doesn’t hope to win, he expects it. He promises it. His standard is success. As this scene depicts perfectly, he’s set bar higher than his peers for years.

This elite standard fuels his inner belief in himself, which translates to his continued success. The continued success then ignites even more confidence.


You must raise your standards to feel more confident. Try stealing Harvey’s standards for a week, live by them, and see what happens to your confidence.


2. Express Yourself:

Have you ever wanted to share something about yourself, but instead, you kept it in? And when was the last time you felt trapped in your head? Unable to communicate your thoughts and feelings? Although coaching can be the best way to blast through this, expressing yourself openly is a powerful cure for feeling more confident.


The more you express your authentic self, the more empowered you feel.  In the show, Harvey Specter always speaks his mind. He never represses his thoughts. (Until season 5 – and remember what happens to his confidence?)


When someone crosses the line, he tells them. If he needs to make his point, he does so with certainty. Aim for this standard in your life. You’ll feel more confident, like Harvey Specter, when you do.

3. Hold Yourself Up Right:

Body language cannot be ignored.  Dr. Cuddy of Harvard discusses and shows how important your body language is in determining how confident you’ll feel, in her TED talk that’s linked above.


One reason Harvey Specter is so confident is that he always carries himself upright.

He’s never slouched, never looking down. He’s made it a habit to hold amazing body language. Do the same. Pull your shoulders back, keep your chin up, and walk with your head held high. It makes all the difference in the world.


Not only in how you feel, but also, holding yourself upright like Harvey makes you appear more confident and charismatic, too.

3. Work on Your Sub-communications 

Most people think it’s the words they say that matter most. Well… Most people are wrong. The truth is, your sub communications matter far more.


But what are sub-communcations?


As the graph below shows, your sub-communications include your tone of voice, gestures, facial expressions, and body language.

It’s in the subtly that you convey your charisma.


And this is what Harvey Specter has mastered in the show. Whether it’s ability to use sarcasm, wit, or his comfort with holding long pauses in conversation, Mr. Specter has his sub-communications dialed in.


Luckily, you can quickly improve your sub communications, too. What follows are two quick ways you can sharpen your social skills by improving your sub-communications.


First, speak more slowly.


Most guys, especially in pressure filled situations, speak too quickly. They speak as if they’re in a footrace. Don’t do this. Instead, breathe deep, pause frequently, and slow the pace of your speech.


To see what this looks like, I have a resource for you. This 60 second video shows you what speaking more slowly looks like.


What follows is a recording of me successfully asking a woman out. Notice how my vocal pacing is controlled, slow, and steady. This is what you want to aim for…



Secondly, start working on a more nonchalant tone of voice. A nonchalant tone of voice will not only make you appear more confident and smooth. Speaking nonchalantly when the pressure is on is how you stand out as a confident leader.


It’s also a great way to make your normal comments sound humorous.


In fact, the nonchalant tone of voice is probably the #1 secret to mastering your dry sense of humor. If you’d like more assistance nailing this smooth, charismatic social ability, check out the blog post I wrote for you on that very topic, right here.
