An inspiring leader is perceived by followers to be knowledgeable, enlightened and sensitive to the problems at hand. From this, follower confidence is built. Followers share with the leader common beliefs about what is wrong, beliefs that the leader articulates publicly for them. Unlike the charismatic leader who substitutes for the follower's ego ideal, the inspirational leader can represent and symbolise it.
