Charismatic Leadership

"Charm and Grace is all that is needed to create followers"  is an assumption of the charismatic leadership. but how long would charm, grace, self-confidence, and other personal traits last? 

First impression is something very important becuase people tend to create an impression by the first look or spoken words. 

I think this could work for a rock singer or a dancer, but in a business context, where there will be many arguments among followers and decision to be made, charismatic leadership is not enough. A business or social leader has to have knowledge, fairness patience, and the ability to actively listen and to understand the other.

I think it would be a vital mistake when senior managers select their organisation's leaders based on charisma. because many real leaders can feel offended and loose the trust in the organisation.
