Leadership of Adolf Hitler

ADOLF Hitler is one of the most infamous characters in world history, known for his leadership in the Nazi Party and his role as chancellor of Germany in the early 1930s. When Hitler joined the Nazi Party, he felt that the leadership was divided and ineffective, paving a perfect way for him to take over.
Throughout his rule, Hitler maintained a mission and outlook that Sashkin would say, fulfils the requirements of visionary leadership. He constructed a vision that stated the "Aryan race" was superior to all and "defined an organizational philosophy" that supported this inequality.
While there are several considerations based on which Hitler can be considered a leader, there are many others who would denounce his leadership because he was lacking in morals and a relationship with his followers. Hitler projected a personalised charismatic leadership, a style that is "exploitative, non-egalitarian, and self-aggrandizing" (Choi). He was extremely focused on his personal control, insisting that the "ultimate authority rested with him and extended downward" (BBC). He assumed other positions so that ultimately he would have even more legitimate power, whether or not it was the best move for his party.
Hitler was known for his rude attitude towards those who reported to him. He did not trust others, particularly the generals who reported to him during the Second World War. Hitler did not rely on the opinions of others and relied on his own instincts and opinions.
Adolf Hitler, although a sick and twisted man, was a brilliant, charismatic leader. His speeches drew crowds of people and earned him massive popularity but he used the power he achieved for evil purposes. He will go down in history as a demonic man who used power for his own good.
