Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Locate an online speech by a known charismatic speaker or leader and take notes on the content, delivery, and audience response. What personality characteristics were evident? Charismatic behaviors? Messages? Effects on followers? Does the speaker’s performance live up to his or her reputation? Have someone you know to watch the speech and ask them what their impressions were of the speaker and the speech. Write a two-to-three-page analysis of your findings and support your position with references.
