Charisma in Leadership LO17591

Replying to LO17503 --

Ed, I agree with you about the charismatic leader without ideas. Now what
about the leader with ideas but no charisma? In my case, I received an
assessment (let's assume it is correct) that, in assuming leadership of
the next project, it would help if I had more "presence".

It's unfortunate, but I think a fact of life that ideas are judged not
only on their own merits but also the force of personality of the person
who delivers it. As project leader I would have "force" of leadership,
but I think having "presence" would help as well.

Any thoughts on this subject would be appreciated.
