Understanding differences between “Charisma” and “Energy”

Charisma comes from a CLARITY of WHY.A charismatic leader has a clear sense of VISION and a JUST CAUSE in mind.It comes from absolute conviction in an IDEAL bigger than oneself.

Energy in contrast comes from a GOOD NIGHT’s SLEEP or lots of caffeine.Energy can EXCITE.

Only Charisma can INSPIRE.Charisma commands LOYALTY whereas Energy does not.

Working with charismatic leaders results in FULFILLMENT , the flow of OXYTOCIN , whereas working with Energetic leaders can at most result in a shot of DOPAMINE.
