Book Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Personnel and Organisation, grade: 1,0, AKAD University of Applied Sciences Leipzig, language: English, abstract: Especially in crises, companies need leaders to help them asserting themselves on the markets and getting them through difficult times. However, not every leader always comes to a satisfying result, since there might be a mismatch between the company’s situation and the attitudes and practices of its leader. As a result, the style of leadership plays a decisive role concerning a company’s achievements in the majority of cases. Since the style of leadership might be the critical factor when it comes to the success of a business, scientists have analyzed several leadership styles, which all have different characteristics and therewith also varying effects on the respective companies. Two of the most common styles are the charismatic and the transformational leadership. As their names already indicate, each of these styles has its own characteristic features that affect the surroundings in a variety of ways. But as different as these two leadership styles might seem, they also have similarities based in their principles and attitudes. Since the opinions among scientists partly seem to be divided concerning the resemblance of the two styles on the one hand and the diversity on the other hand, this paper consequently deals with the task to expose the differences and similarities between charismatic and transformational leadership. First, in Chapter 2 Leadership in general a short definition of leadership in general is given, for describing the universal understanding of leadership and its components. For being able to highlight the corresponding differences and similarities between the two special leadership styles that have to be examined, Chapter 3 Charismatic Leadership and Chapter 4 Transformational Leadership analyze the characteristics as well as the components of charismatic and transformational leadership in order to get a better understanding of their basic attributes. The following Chapter 5 Differences between Charismatic and Transformational Leadership shows the main distinctions between these two leadership styles, based on the perceptions of the previous chapters. Chapter 6 Similarities between Charismatic and Transformational Leadership underlines on the other side the general similarities and parallels between the two. Chapter 7 Résumé finally summarizes the results and concludes the paper.

Book Summary:

Most research into leadership has presented leaders as heroic, charismatic and transformational 'visionaries'. The leader, whether in business, politics or any other field, is the most important factor in determining whether organizations succeed or fail. Indeed, despite the fundamental mistakes which have, arguably, directly led to global economic recession, it is often still taken for granted that transformational leadership is a good thing, and that leaders should have much more power than followers to decide what needs to be done. The Dark Side of Transformational Leadership confronts this orthodoxy by illustrating how such approaches can encourage narcissism, megalomania and poor decision-making on the part of leaders, at great expense to those organizations they are there to serve. Written in a lively and engaging style, the book uses a number of case studies to illustrate the perils of transformational leadership, from the Jonestown tragedy in 1978 when over 900 people were either murdered or committed suicide at the urging of their leader, to an analysis of how banking executives tried to explain away their role in the 2008 financial crisis This provocative and hugely important book offers a rare critical perspective in the field of leadership studies. Concluding with a new approach that offers an alternative to the dominant transformational model, The Dark Side of Transformational Leadership will be an invaluable text for academics interested in leadership, students on leadership courses requiring a more critical perspective, and anyone concerned with how people lead people, and the lessons we can learn.

Book Summary:

"[This book] offers a comprehensive review of the new approaches to leadership research. . . . What becomes clear from this book is that the kind of leadership research that emerged in the 1980s is still in an infant stage and that there are a lot of issues that require further attention. By exploring the ambiguities, inconsistencies or matters that require clarification, Bryman succeeds in writing a valuable contribution to understanding new approaches to leadership. . . . This book is recommended reading for any scholar in the field of leadership." --Organization Studies "The sheer breadth of the text means that it is a book one will return to recurrently. . . . Bryman's text proves a useful way of sociologically connecting some more influential recent approaches in the management field with traditions of serious scholarship that have slightly longer legs than the latest business school fad. . . . The book offers many excellent examples and discussions of identities which might be considered to be charismatic, from religion, social movements, politics, and organizational life in business. . . . The book is a useful and timely contribution to the sociology of organizations and management. . . . It redefines a field of analysis in ways that are provocative and may be important. . . . The book is to be recommended." --Sociology "Charisma and Leadership in Organizations is an excellent book. The clarity of style and argument is exceptional, the mixture of theory and exemplification just right. Indeed, some of the cases drawn on to illuminate the arguments are fascinating as well as diverse --Gladstone, Hitler, and Tony Benn are to be found here as well as the Jehovah's Witnesses, theReverend Moon and the film directory Michael Cimino. . . . Perhaps the beauty of this text from the point of view of both author and publisher is that it could have very wide uses: not only the business undergraduate and MBA market but also sociologists and other social science students as well as, of course, their lecturers. Certainly, Bryman's book is the kind of text that could lead you unhesitatingly to constructing an option on leadership and charisma, or to dwelling at length upon these topics within a more general course. Within business studies and organisational behavior courses it is to be hoped that Charisma and Leadership comes to be seen as more than just another specialist text." --The Service Industries Journal "Alan Bryman . . . has extended our understanding of this subject through his latest book. . . . The use of vignettes located within several chapters illustrated and clarified many of Bryman's major points. Moreover, the integration and reference to leadership theories presented in the early chapters connected major ideas presented by either supporting or refuting them. I also found the brief summaries at the end of each chapter to be helpful. . . . Bryman clearly and simply removes the cloud that often surrounds charisma and leadership. He enunciates his presentation concisely and enables readers to easily assess the strengths and weaknesses of the New Leadership. From a theoretical perspective, I think it is time we accept such a paradigm. I recommend a copy of this book to those interested in expanding their knowledge about an exciting area within the leadership domain." --Business Horizons "The author provides a detailed review of the literature associated withthe concept of 'New Leadership, ' together with some ideas of his own on a fascinating subject." --Long Range Planning "The author has thoroughly researched the topic of charisma and its effect on leadership. . . . We desperately need the 'new leaders' he describes." --Henry F. Houser, Professor of Management, Auburn University at Montgomery How do executives like Lee Iacocca and Steve Jobs consistently reap excellent job performance, loyalty, and praise from employees? In recent years, researchers and practitioners concerned with the effective functioning of organizations have scrutinized this subject carefully. In Charisma and Leadership in Organizations, Alan Bryman explores the nature of these charismatic qualities by questioning the differences between management and leadership, the role of vision, and the nature of transformational leadership. By examining the vanguards of contemporary business and by drawing examples from the lives of holy men of late antiquity, Sufi saints, nineteenth century millenarian chiefs, and political figures like Nkrumah and Gladstone, Bryman brings a fresh perspective to the discussion of charismatic leadership. Most notably, he specifically and emphatically rejects the notion that charisma is a mystical quality that denotes personal magnetism. Finally, Bryman discusses the nature of charisma in relation to the 'New Leadership' school of thought. Intended for students, academics and professionals in management and organization studies as well as for sociologists and social science students, Charisma and Leadership in Organizations is a timely work that provides a much needed critical review of current leadership literature.

With the concepts and the definition it became clearer that leadership appears in groups with the result of changes. A closer look inside the business world today shows, that a lot of crisis takes place in various companies every day. Inherent with the globalization and the information availability and transparency is also that business cycles become faster and faster. Thereby only companies which are organized and structured very flexible, and are able to adapt themselves on new situations are successful. So the task for a manager is to be prepared on new changing situation, to foresee situations and to solve upcoming crisis successfully. Due to that the following paper is based on a personality and a successful leader of the past: Eric Shackleton. As he was able to master his extreme crisis situations very successful, he is also today a very respected and admired person and a architype for todays manager. To learn from theories is more effective by applying them to an existing situation. Due to that in this paper a short description of Shackleton, his live and personality takes place in order to give and insight in his actions. Thereby special characteristics and actions of Shackletons are pointed out. Based on that, the analytical steps are made, with the use of charismatic as well as transformational leadership theories. Thereby a justification of those theories is made as well as the differences of those is highlig
