Implicit Positional Leadership

If we assumed a situation where the team's  appointed leader is not effective and do not contribute to the team work and all members feel that they do not have a leader, what would we expect the logical result of that? would we expect a new leader to emerge among team members? or would they just do the task without a leader?

Focusing on the second scenario, why would they complete the task without a leader? it is because either they do not feel the need for a leader or they still consider the ineffective leader their leader. 

Again focusing on the second case, why would a group of people consider an ineffective person as their leader? it can be either because they have a personalities that do not like to be led and they are happy with the situation or because they feel the positional power of the leader and they do not want to resist it.

The second possibility expresses the influence that the positional power have on many people even though it is not presented in authoritarian way or by a dominant person who likes to practise their authorities.
