Charismatic Leadership: Be the Person People CHOOSE to Follow

Business group greets leader with clapping and smiling

In the initial years of our existence, we tend to believe that other people and events revolve around us. This feeling, which makes the locates the focus of growing up in one’s inward personality, is common in childhood, and generally fades away as we grow up.

However, this continues in some people. They grow into being egotistic and highly reclusive people who always crave for attention. The other type of people is the opposite. Their focus is external or outside. They see the world differently from the inwardly-focused people. They are interested in people relationships, are ever willing to make friends, and most importantly, develop the talent of persuasion.

As this quality grows, such people become what psychologists terms as the charismatic persons. This is an invaluable quality in organizations or in work that involves team building, cooperation and collaboration. People with charisms are very successful in drawing people towards them and building teams that are highly efficient and effective.

This quality in them gives them the presence needed for leadership. This presence makes way for developing qualities that make leaders, such as building dynamic teams and learning to delegate effectively. Such people are devoid of uncertainty and apprehension when delegating or doing anything that has a positive effect on the people around them.
