Chris and Doc,

Just a note on charismatic leadership, Bass's book does have a lot to say
on charismatic leadership, he was the great proponent of the idea. I have
spent five and a half years working towards my doctorate in leadership
studies at the University of San Diego. I just want to say at this point
that there is no such thing as Charismatic Leadership, the theory has been
debunked. If you would like to discuss this I would be glad to, wishing
you a good day.

[Host's Note: John, we're not going to leave that teaser on the table!
Pelase tell us more! ...Rick]
