Running head: DISCUSSION 2
Discussion 2: Charismatic Leadership
Charisma simply means an attractive character or trait. Charismatic leadership,
therefore, entails the derivation of authority from an individual’s admirable character. A
charismatic leader is one who is able to influence his or her subordinates into doing
something just by the way he does or describes it to them. Generally, a charismatic
leader is an excellent communicator, has a captivating vision and the ability to influence
strong emotions in his subordinates. A charismatic leader is, therefore, one who is able to
connect with subordinates both at the physical and emotional level. This explains why
employees and individuals desire or seek out charismatic leaders to a large extent.
Charismatic leaders are natural influencers as Wicker-Miurin (2009) puts it. They easily
make change happen in their communities with little effort. Nikoloski (2015) notes that
charismatic leaders understand exactly how to use power and thus use this to get things
done, which is good for business (p.18).
Charismatic leadership definitely has a positive impact when it comes to
improving performance and attaining organizational goals. This can clearly be seen in
Tom’s case study. Blake Mycoskie who is the founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS
Shoes is a charismatic leader given the influence and determination with which he started
the company and had it grow into what he had envisioned. It is clear that he cares for his
employees in his approach to issues like the moment he decides to have individuals that
are only passionate about the organization’s vision work for the organization. To begin
with, Mycoskie implements a strategy that sees to it that the most crucial organizational
operations are carried out by interns who in return are guaranteed a stronger resume and
guidance on future development career goals. This is a smart strategy as it enables the
organization to continue in its daily operations as expected and achieving its set targets
while the employees, on the other hand, get what they deserve. Also, using interns in
most roles is a smart move...
