Many definitions of leadership assume that leadership in situational; in sense that it emerges in a specific situation. accordingly, we can define many situations such as transitive, emergency, and many others.
This leads to assume that there are different types of leadership; each related to the situation that it emerged from. so we could have transitive leadership, emergency situations leadership an so on. this in turn leads to many questions:
Do leaders emerge in the same way in all situations?
What happened after the situation is over? will followers start looking for another leader who is suitable for the new situation?
What about the long-term leaders? long-term might include many situations. does this mean that some people have the ability to change their characteristics and respond to what people want/'need'?
