Interesting observation on what you perceive are these different concepts of social empowerment,if power and the need to dominate others is what rocks ones boat then certainly this Asian definition would conceivably- by dint of it's subtlety and inate diplomacy- perhaps be a more effective means of leadership than the authoritarian model you ascribe to Western culture.
From your experience of Japanese culture do you observe this former charismatic approach also being utilized by Japanese males or is it a uniquely female perspective on power?

Well, when the dominant Japanese male role model is the host, when cute, slight, spikey-haired poppet Kotaru Koizumi pulls in more with a single ad campaign than his dad did for a whole year of being Prime Minister, Akihabara gets trendy and the last otaku becomes a metrosexual... something is happening to Japanese men.
