The article discusses emergent leadership (EL) as distinct from the conventional leadership approaches that are based on hierarchical linearity. The authors note that EL is a new leadership approach that allows decisions on the basis of knowledge, skills and experience rather than formal positions. They also mention that leadership development can be horizontal as seen as the different types of intelligence as well as vertical development which is the ability to transform the way we make sense of the broader and more diverse perspectives.
