Martin Killduff, from the Cambridge Judge Business School, said people that are seen by their colleagues as charismatic are far more likely to climb the career ladder.
He noted that the belief that vision was essential in management has been replaced by the need for leaders who are well-regarded by their staff and have an outgoing side which makes them more approachable.
"If you are seen by your teammates as charismatic, you are likely to lead a high-performing team, however you get there," Mr Killduff explained.
His comments followed the publication of research by his organisation which showed that the notion of charisma has been "stripped down", with good managers being those who treat people considerately on their team, are always available and socially interact.
