10 © Prentice Hall 2006 Transformational Leadership Charismatic leadership and transformational leadership are frequently viewed as interchangeable. Both include many similar behaviors such as developing and articulating an inspirational vision, advocating a moral mission that reflects followers’ values and needs, arousing follower emotions to identify with the leader and the mission, role modeling, frame alignment, and inducing extra effort from followers to achieve high levels of performance. 8-10

11 © Prentice Hall 2006 Transformational Leadership Transformational and transactional leadership are not mutually exclusive Transactional leadership Involves an exchange relationship, in which followers exert effort for the purpose of getting contractual benefits in return from the leader and/or the group.

13 © Prentice Hall 2006 Neutralizers of Charismatic Leadership 8-13 Although several writers have made interesting predictions, the research is very sparse on possible neutralizers of charismatic leadership. At this time, no research supports the suggestion that situational or follower characteristics can reliably neutralize the impacts of charismatic leadership.

16 © Prentice Hall 2006 Assessing the Dynamics of Charismatic Leadership  In diagnosing situations, charismatic leaders look for current and future culture shocks or crises that create anxiety and distress in followers.  When these follower and environmental factors are present, a leader should use charismatic behaviors to influence followers.  Charismatic leaders who are concerned with their followers’ development may also consider modifying environmental and follower characteristics to create factors that replace the need for charismatic leadership.  Leaders can do this by (1) providing followers with valuable work experiences that are inherently interesting and satisfying and (2) helping followers succeed at their tasks to build their self confidence. 8-16

17 © Prentice Hall 2006 Applying the Model of Charismatic Leadership Do followers face a crisis or extreme uncertainty causing them distress, anxiety, isolation, helplessness, or low self-esteem? Are followers’ tasks creative or inherently satisfying? Is there a history of charisma in the organization? Does the leader have a high-level position, status, or expertise? Are there formal plans, goals, and procedures that support the leader’s mission? Are there educated and professional followers who support the leader’s mission? If “yes” to one or more of these questions then followers will probably respond favorably to charismatic leadership. 1. DIAGNOSING THE SITUATION 3. MODIFYING FOLLOWERS & SITUATIONS Leaders also act to: Alleviate crisis, uncertainty, distress, anxiety, isolation, or low self-esteem. Make followers’ tasks more creative and satisfying Increase their own rank, status, and expertise Create plans, goals, and procedures that support or replace the leader’s mission Develop educated or professional followers 2. PROVIDING DIRECTIVE LEADERSHIP Leader demonstrates charismatic behaviors like the following: Advocating a moral mission & vision Using inspirational rhetoric Building own image in followers’ eyes Role modeling behavior for followers with high expectations & confidence Taking risks to achieve mission Frame alignment to guide follower behavior 8-17
