Abstract

This research investigates the ways in which leaders of ideological organizations use words, imagery, and vision to influence radical and sustainable action among followers in a sample of Violent Extremist Organizations. Using the Charismatic, Ideological, and Pragmatic (CIP) Model of Leadership, power orientation, and ideological differences in terms of defining an audience for their violence, we examined organizational and leader characteristics that influence the sustainability of lethal performance over time. The results of this research suggested that differences in leadership style and power orientation influence organizational sustainability. In addition, ideological differences within an organization interacted with external cultural factors to influence sustainable performance. The results of this research and implications for counterterrorism are discussed.
