Emerging Leaders, Are they the same?

Some authors define leadership as occurs within a situation “emerge leaders”. It is kind of a contingency approach which makes the leader to focus on their followers; mainly focuses on two leadership dimensions. Well looking from this concept it can be obvious that emerge leaders can be related to task issues or behavioral issues. Wars, disasters, corruptions, injustice, work stress… etc all of these leads to emerge leaders, but are they similar leaders?!! NO NOT THE SAME, that when employees feel stress emerge leader won’t be that one want to tells them and dictates the roles and responsibilities of the employees and force them to achieve their target. However, he might be that guy came and assists in the task process and asks employees to participate in the decision making and gives them the sense of involvement. Contrary, wars and disasters emerge leader might be that dictates one who guide and delegate authorities and tells everyone what to do, because they might be lost and needs someone to push and support with clear vision. Therefore, yes they might be an emerge leader in specific situations, however, this approach can’t be a theory itself since even these leaders won’t be the same and should ne adapting other leadership approaches. My reflection is that I totally believe that situational theory from what I read is just a way to prioritizing people behaviors in different situations and not an approach by itself. In other words, Situational leadership model just tells you that your personalities won’t put you in a leadership state in all situations, however, there might come a situation in which your personalities are the best to emerge as a leader. That will clearly gives you an idea why some times in real work place you feel that important and people listening to what you said and then turning to one of your colleagues and it could be a continuous fluctuating in a non- Routine working processes.
