While the importance of leadership in business has been proven in multiple studies, how to define and measure leadership is still a controversial topic, especially when we take into account the context of today’s globalised business landscape, where it is commonplace for global corporations to move their managers from one country to another. Is effective leadership perceived differently among countries and cultures? Or is there a universal profile of great business leaders and managers?Read More
Charisma is not an attribute, but a perception one person has of another whose personality he or she finds appealing. No one can be charismatic on his or her own.
How many times have you heard your staffs complain about the way you lead them? How many times have you seen your people leaving you, leaving the team just because of your leadership style? Have you ever said to yourself, “I need to change, to make people around me feel comfortable working with me,” and then failed?

When the time comes, you get the promotion, so how should you prepare for your first role as a manager? Although your performance has been good and you’ve assessed that you are a fit for the job, leading others will be an adjustment for most.

Charismatic leaders and managers create and maintain a work environment where people are emotionally and intellectually committed to the organization’s goals. Not only does charisma foster a positive work environment, but it also plays a vital role in helping managers achieve a strong loyalty, respect, and even love from their employees.It has been said many times that charismatic leaders are born, not made.
