Charisma is not leadership

People often confuse charisma for leadership and consider it one and the same. While charisma is a component embraced by many successful leaders, it is not what makes one a leader and as such it should be considered as one of their attributes, not an entire representation of that individual.

Leaders put others ahead of themselves; they act with benefits of others in mind and while being charismatic can certainly help, it is not what defines them in any sense. Charisma is not leadership.
