Charisma and loyalty

Try to use as much charisma as you need, but avoid making charisma your main focus or your only focus. While attracting people through charisma might be your only option, you have to back this charisma up with the quality leadership based on values and principle that allow your followers to believe in the system more than in your charisma.

Only then, can you stand a chance of establishing a functioning and long-term leadership.
