Abstract

This study examines the impact of charismatic leadership on team cohesiveness and team performance in organisations. We expect direct effects of leadership and team cohesiveness, as well as a moderating effect of culture on the relationship between leadership on cohesiveness and performance. Charismatic leadership often provides the right make up to allow a team to flourish. It successfully takes all the leadership styles developed over the years and combines them to form one leadership theory that encapsulates leading through inspiring. To examine leadership style, knowledge level, and team cohesiveness as antecedents of team performance. Charismatic leadership was associated with a higher level of team cohesiveness, as compared to transactional leadership. Both knowledge level and team cohesiveness forecast team performance. For recovering team performance, a manager should enhance team knowledge and encourage greater team cohesiveness.
