Servant vs Charismatic Leaders

Are Servant-Leadership and Charismatic Leadership opposites?


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.

Servant and Charismatic Leadership Objectives and Styles Compared

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.
