Leadership: Do we need charisma for radiating sovereignty?
What is sovereignty?
Sovereignty is often confused with terms like arrogance, pride, or authoritarian behavior.
And just this does not mean true sovereignty!
For radiating sovereignty we indeed need a good portion of self-awareness.
We must be sure about the own self. We must know what we want in life. And we must know our weaknesses and strengths.
Only when we know our weaknesses, flaws and strengths, and know how this effects our surroundings, are we able to assess our personality.
Ask yourself honestly, how you see yourself, what your weaknesses and strengths are, and ask others (good friends and the own family), how you appear to others.
Too often we have a false picture of the own identity. A picture that does not correspond reality.
Real sovereignty needs authenticity, only through that you become credible, convincing and leave a good and lasting impression.
Leaders that lead with sovereignty are capable to show their weaknesses and accept their fears and doubts.
Because nobody is perfect, it is false to think we must lead with perfection.
Sovereign leaders draw interest, and create attention.
They encounter others with respect and trust.
Sovereign leaders know what they want in life and from life.
They have their certain principles and values.
Now we could ask us:
Does one need charisma for radiating sovereignty?
At first glance, we could say yes.
But it is not so.
There are certainly leaders who can convince with charisma.
They radiate from the inside out.
Wherever they go, they attract attention.
But charisma is no “must have” for a sovereign leader.
People with charisma possess the following qualities:
1. Charismatic leaders have extraordinary skills in communication.
2. They have a powerful personality.
3. Charismatic leaders also have a sense of humility.
4. Successful charismatic leaders are also compassionate.
5. They are truly confident.
6. Charismatic leaders are extremely good listeners.
7. They also know how important it is to continually improve themselves.
