This is achieved through a charismatic narrative and image that encapsulates and symbolises the charismatic collective’s identity. As outlined earlier, the charismatic leader must manipulate the relationship between the charismatic collective, centres and perception of crisis (bottom-up influence) and not rely upon promoting the connection between charismatic leader, perception of crisis and centres (top-down influence). After all, the latter is critical in forming the charismatic narrative and charismatic image, while the former must be strengthened, reinforced, manipulated and mobilised for charismatic appeal to emerge.
Finally, via these identity paradigms, the charismatic leader shapes the charismatic collective’s cognitive perceptions, especially concerning perception of crisis and solutions to these problems. The following analysis examines these three conceptual principles and introduces concepts relating to the charismatic leader’s role in the charismatic collective’s identity construction and radicalisation that will be expanded upon in Chapters 3 and 4 respectively. Perception of Crisis and the Charismatic Leadership Phenomenon Charismatic leadership is reliant upon perceptions of crisis in communities of potential support and the maintenance of perceptions of crisis in the charismatic collective is vital to the charismatic leader-follower relationship’s continuation.
Put simply, the context within which a charismatic leader emerges is far from ordinary and a belief that these issues transcend the capability of established authority structures is a (if not the) critical precursor to the charismatic leader’s rise. This perceived failing of traditional authority institutions greatly exacerbates perceptions of crisis. The more acute the perception of crisis the higher the propensity for the charismatic leadership phenomenon to emerge. As Madsen and Snow argue, “…charisma is never simply the result of the magnetism of a leader; it depends equally upon the ‘magnetizability’ of the followers” (1983: 338).
