Charisma refers to a term derived by Max Weber from the Greek xarisma which means "a divine gift of grace". Charisma is the ascription of extraordinary or supernatural acumen, ability , and value to a leader by his or her followers.

For me, President Barack Obama has a strong charisma and a charismatic leader.
