In Weber's writing and in leadership theory, charismatic leadership is associated with social change However, the importance and desirability of charismatic leaders in change processes can be questioned, as well as the notion that charismatic leaders are invariably proponents of change There are documented cases of charismatic leaders in religious and political contexts who have opposed ongoing change and proposed restoring tradition This paper reports oil two historical. qualitative case studies of charismatic leadership in an organizational setting, studies that demonstrate that charismatic leadership can also act in resistance to change and in defense of the Status quo The analysis indicates that the influence processes involved are basically the same as in charismatic leadership in general It suggests that impending change can challenge the interests and values of established groups and thus create a crisis that Stimulates the formation of charisma in opposition to change.
