The Charismatic Leader
In today’s complex global business scenario, the Charismatic Leader is the organization’s transformation specialist. His holistic quest raises the organization above internal and external complexities to turn in high quality growth balanced by the five existential imensions: Economic, Emotional, Intellectual, Cultural and Spiritual. The end result is far greater than the parts. The harmony of these five dimensions produces the sixth dimension: organic evolution. Charisma, the magnetic spiritual force, is born of the alchemy of Ethos, Pathos, and Logos (in that order). Ethos is what you decide you are about and what you value. It gives you the criteria for making life decisions. Pathos is how you relate to others, and reflects your own personal mastery, derived from deep-rooted beliefs and values. Logos is about your dreams, mission and purpose. The Charismatic Leader is deeply aware of his Inner Self, and divines his own Truths, the substance of divine nature, in his reflection periods. He relentlessly walks the path of those Truths with conscious global mindfulness, focusing on the spirit of Self- Evolution and not the act of walking. You cannot psych yourself into self-compassion or peace of mind. It comes when your life is in harmony with your Truths. A leader’s personal mastery comes from self-awareness and the lifelong process of experiencing and learning.This book is for everyone who wants to transcend into being a Charismatic Leader in the new age. The text supports current trends in leadership towards sustainability, employee engagement, work/life integration, collaboration, coaching, and worldwide connectivity. It is a counter narrative to beliefs of entitlement and self-indulgence at the expense of earned competency. This volume is an excellent reference for leadership courses in uIniversities, for trainers and business leaders, as well as for the young reader in search of greater self-awareness. I particularly liked [the]emphasis on… self-management over dependence, inspiration over autocratic leadership, spiritual awareness over constant electronic stimulus without introspection, and a focus outward to serving others over short term gains.
