Servant leader and Charismatic leader
No! The servant as leader and a charismatic leader are not opposites. The Servant Leader has most characteristics of the 10 Robert Greenleaf traits described in the summary and just like the Charismatic Leader has a way about them that just makes you want to follow him. Like Gandi.

SL and CL are completely different like with this written example.

Servant and Charismatic Leadership Objectives and Styles Compared
Jagdish B Acharya, Consultant, India, Premium Member
A servant leader has an objective of service for which he leads. A charismatic leader has a style by which he appears to lead naturally. Different followers will join depending on leader types. (Servant - S, Charismatic - C)
1. S AND C - Leader will have faster growth of followers due to C factor and sustenance due to S factor.
2. S AND NOT C - Leader will have sustained but slow growth. Like Christ.
3. C AND NOT S - Leader may get many followers, but only as imitators and may not ensure sustainance.
4. Not C AND NOT S - Leader has less chances of success as a leader. May mostly be follower of what he is interested in.
