Charismatic Leadership Differentiated
Elaine C. Bishop, Business Consultant, United States

Charisma... Is the distinguishing element of charismatic leadership. Charisma is contagious because of the charm content. Charming people can be very influential. Consequently, charismatic leaders are influential because charisma elicts emotional responses from followers. Emotions are strong behavioral motivators. However, there is one caveat: there are light-side charismatic leaders and dark-side charismatic leaders.

Charismatic Leadership
Hori Mke, Teacher, New Zealand
The best leaders I believe are those who often use integrity, confidence, honesty and good old common sense with what ever they do and how ever they do it. We often more then most, need or rely on others to take the lead for what ever reason, I think it part of the human condition. Some are born leaders, some get thrown in to leadership but not all people can lead. Not a lot of people want to take the lead in most cases due to the fact of responsibility or ownership of what could potentially happen if the outcomes are not so positive. A great leader will weigh all options available to them that will not only benefit themselves but all others included. Charismatic leadership is that of a person who looks at the aura, spirit, heart and well-being of an individual and how they are feeling, thinking and engaged in the decisions that are made. I feel there needs to be more people like this cause it's the way that every charismatic leader has or had been at some time or another.

Recognizing Charismatic Leadership
Michael D. Moore, Entrepreneur, United States
It absolutely exists in some people. As much as I have supported leadership development over the years, I believe this is something that can not be taught. In reality, it is hard to define but you know it when you see it!
