Prior to the elections, President Barack Obama focused on attracting the attention of the population of America and foreigners expressing a charismatic nature. He possesses the ability of drawing others on his side and moving them ahead for accomplishing a particular cause. This approach of being charismatic which is transformational helped Obama in invoking fixed changes within individuals who embraced his visions (Nagourney, 2008). President Obama managed to woo most of his visions by the expressing his potential of making big differences in both, foreign and domestic affairs. Moreover, President Obama considered the safety of America and did not take it for granted while formulating an extreme cross-cultural approach to the globe. He developed this approach by considering the interests of US as well as other nations. When he travelled to different nations, he had been extremely humble, conciliatory and focused on listening before he spoke. His power of speech can also be considered as an important tool that he used for modelling the way towards the nation he had foreseen.
In the duration of six months, President Obama travelled to different nations paying careful attention on norms of all respective cultures. After the first year passed, the attempts of President Obama became more conciliatory towards China, Russia and Middle East. For this attempt he had received the prize of Nobel Peace (Tirmizi, 2002). In the duration of five years of his presidency, he not only showed transformational leadership and cultural sensitivity, he had also given response to a number of situations by various categories of leadership models. This concept has been termed as the contingency leadership. All these approach are evidences as to how he managed to model his way within presidency.
