Charismatic Leaders

Charismatic professionals execute a certain magnetism and presence that automatically lead others to endorse them as leaders.

They have high levels of energy, unconventional behaviour and seem to be doing heroic deeds. We seem to be hardwired to seek and endorse over-glorified 'Superhero' like leaders.

Narcissist Leaders

Charismatic leaders can also be narcissists in some cases, having self-serving and grandiose intentions, taking advantage of their followers and abusing their power.

Even though they are generally perceived as arrogant, their bold vision and fearless attitude make them radiate an image of effective leaders, making them a high-risk, high-reward proposition.

A successful leader

Successful leaders do not only have to work hard, but they should also bear in mind the importance that a motivated team can have in the company's growth.

3 Areas Of Life To Develop Integrity
  1. Personal Life: refuse to say or do something that you don’t believe is right and refuse to tolerate or compromise in situations where you are unhappy with the behavior of another.
  2. Financial: Casualness toward money, yours or not, brings financial casualties. Fiercely guard your credit rating, pay your bills in time and keep your word on your financial commitments.
  3. Commitment To Others: Always keep your word, be trustworthy and honorable no matter the circumstances.
The Importance Of Business Ethics

The way to becoming a great leader is through your core values, business ethics and leadership qualities which precede you in both your business and personal life.

Your business ethics are manifested in your willingness to adhere and keep to your core values. Doing so will make your character stronger and in consequence, every other part of your life will improve as well.
