Characteristics of a Charismatic Leader

1. Emotional Impact on people as they appeal to both the heart and mind. 2. Challenge the status quo 3. Use personal and relational power as opposed to transitional power

1) Emotional Impact

The story about Trump's limo breaking down on the side of the road, and the unemployed auto mechanic who stopped to help repair his car is true. But what most people don't know was the way Trump expressed his gratitude. He sent the mechanic's wife a bouquet of flowers and then paid off the man's mortgage.

Appeal to the heart (flowers) Mind (action, intention) .

Went the extra mile express how grateful he was to the mechanic who fixed his car.

2) Challenge the status quo

For instance, going against the rule of using lower prices to drive out competitors when Trump had competitors, not only did he not lower prices, he even raised them.

It is a common practise that to win competition a common strategy is to lower prices Did the opposite, Trump has challenged the status quo and emerged successful. Premium Status

3) Personal and Relational Power

He negotiates with subcontractors himself instead of relying on the formality of a purchasing department, and isn't opposed to using his own celebrity to better the deal like the time he agreed to call the subcontractor's mother and wish her a happy birthday.

Despite his position, he uses his personal self to negotiate with others. This is an example of personal power as he able to use himself as a model to relate with others.
