The Power of the 'Charisma Arrow'

By Cathy Wasserman

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, January 2011

The author discusses the powers and perils of charisma, which can be used for good or for ill, and contends that leaders should use their charisma modestly, in order to activate the talents of others. In such a model of leadership, she reasons, succession planning can be seen as an activity which starts from the leader's first day -- or, alternatively, as an activity which need not even exist, since the job of leaders might be seen as empowering their organizations not to need them.
