The following paper examines the role of charismatic leadership across religious, political, and business leadership in order to come to terms with charisma, what is often described as an intangible quality. The term itself is derived from a Greek term indicating divine favor, a notion that scholars have increasingly tried to move away from, or ignore, but from a systematic analysis of ways in which charisma manifests, the authors hope to bring the subject into a more defined relief.
