Energy vs Charisma , which inspires?

Energy can excite but charisma truly inspires people.

A highly energetic person through his power of speech can convince an audience for some time , excitement can give rise to “dopamine” flow but the impact can never be long lasting.

Take the case of Steve Ballmer and his energetic speeches.They were good for the moment but never long lasting since it never communicated the WHY to the audience.

A charismatic person like a Steve Jobs used to have the audience riveted to their seats during a presentation and left them with memories since it truly communicated the WHY to a target audience in a very subtle manner.

Thus a charismatic leaders stands out when it comes to inspiring an audience for desired action.
