Charismatic leadership are the qualities that influence the subordinate with action and behavior. Charisma is a trait which is associated with leaders. The term charismatic comes from Greek word charis which means grace, kindness and life. Charismatic people are considered as graceful and virtuous. The idea of using one’s charisma, and influence in order to lead, is not a new way of looking at leadership.
Charismatic Leadership Qualities
Following are the charismatic leadership qualities.
Being visionary means, being open to chance and the most important is understanding that constant improvement which is required for progress. You have to embark on a road of self-improvement, where you are constantly looking for expanding your skills and learning things beyond the comfort zone. In addition you need to, listen to other people and you have to understand how their experiences, have shaped them. If you can combine, your understanding of the world with the experiences of others and you can visualise new solutions, and approaches to solving things.
Visionary people are both, dreamers and also doers. You want to spend enough time, to thinking about the world and also the problems you face. But you don’t want to be caught daydreaming while, other people fix the problems.
Charismatic leaders must have to be sensitive in both reading the emotions of the people and also their ambitions. They also be sensitive in showing them compassion and empathy. As a sensitive leader you must be able, to sense the other expectations and also needs in order to properly approach them, with your vision. In short you, need to be able to sense the mood and also be able to adjust to it.
In addition to it, you must also show humility and also show some compassion towards people. When you listen to people, you have to convince them and also you are there to help them anytime and, you understand that what the person is saying actually. Even if you can’t do, what the person might want you to do, you need to be able to convince them, to work in a specific way and also make them feel like their best and best interest as well.
You need to show respect and also empathy towards them. People follow leaders, who make them feel good and also very important, instead of someone, who doesn’t even listen to them.
There are two aspects of articulation, in terms of the charismatic leadership. It simply means to being a better communicator, and also being able to talk about complex issues, to people in a good way they understand it. In the business world, the key is to explain, the why, the how and the when. You need to explain the reason, or also the vision behind the actions clarify, what is needed in order to get to the objective, and also ensure people know how fast, this all should be accomplished.
But the second aspect, of articulation and the communication relates, to the understanding of your subordinates. The Charismatic leadership requires you, to be able to read people minds and select the right motivations, for inspiring them. Therefore, you need to be able to analyze your audience, and also select the right communication style for each occasion for those people.
Finally, the charismatic leaders tend to be creative. In order to be more visionary you naturally need, a healthy dose of creativity. You must be able to think outside the box, in order to create meaningful change in the organization.
Creativity is linked to charismatic leadership’s idea, of strong conviction. You must need to be able to speak with the conviction meaning, that you need to use creative images and messaging in order to get others, to buy into your vision.
As you need to be a visionary, so that you must be willing to take risks as well, because you are trying to obtain a visionary goal which is something transformative and different that you would not have a paved out road, ahead of you. In order to accomplish great things the charismatic leadership, requires you to put yourself on the line.
Risk taking means two things, the first as a leader you are responsible for any problems that might arise. You are not afraid to step out of the way, if things do not work out and also you would not try to place the blame.
But in addition you are not afraid of challenges either. You must understand that each challenge, will have to bring about positive things. Whether or, not you accomplish what you set out to do that. You are ready to give it your best and best shot, because you can see the rewards of accomplishing things. While realizing failure is not the end of the world.
