Abstract

Emergent leaders were studied in order to determine if they possess certain characteristics that may have possibly contributed to them emerging as leader.
Twenty four employees were used and out of these came seven groups. Ten characteristics of the leader were measured by the group in order to determine whether or not the leaders rated highly in certain traits. These leaders were also asked to rate themselves on the same traits. This would help to give an overall view of the characteristics of the leader.
The findings from the survey conducted were then compared to the literature in order to determine which of the traits appear to be necessary for emergent leaders.
The results showed that some of the traits measured were found in emergent leadership. Some of the results were inconsistent, so this could imply that these traits are not necessary for the emergence of a leader.
