    • Elements of the charismatic situation

One of the most important aspects of charismatic and transformational leadership is the personal nature of the leader’s power.

    • Charismatic leaders are more sensitive to the emotional states of followers.
    • Charismatic leaders tend to be emotionally expressive, especially through such nonverbal channels as their eye contact, posture, movement, gestures, tone of voice, and facial expressions.

Charisma is probably more a function of the followers’ reactions to a leader than of the leader’s personal characteristics.

  • Four unique characteristics of the reactions that followers have toward leaders:
    • Identification with the leader and the vision
    • Heightened emotional levels
    • Willing subordination to the leader
    • Feelings of empowerment

Situational factors play an important role in determining whether a leader is perceived as charismatic.

  • Situational factors believed to affect charismatic leadership:
    • Crises
    • Task interdependence and social networks
    • Other situational characteristics
        • Organizations placing a premium on innovation
        • Outscoring and organizational downsizing
        • Time
  • “When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bustling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity.”
        • Dale Carnegie
