static

Here is my best explanation:

'still' is the definition.
('static' can be a synonym of 'still')

'in charge after endless fluster' is the wordplay.
'in charge' becomes 'ic'.
'after' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'endless' means to remove the last letter.
'fluster' becomes 'state' (both can mean a state of panic).
'state' with its final letter taken away is 'stat'.
'ic' after 'stat' is 'STATIC'.
