Leadership is essential to the effectiveness of work teams and the organizations of which they are a part. The challenges facing organizations in today’s world require an exhaustive review of the strategic role of leadership. In this context, it will be necessary to explore new types of leadership capable of providing an effective response to new work needs, such as the design of change, innovation, cultural diversity, complexity, knowledge-based working and virtual organizations. Responses to these needs have led to the development of new approaches, such as the ‘new leadership’, and authentic, transcultural, complex, shared and remote leadership. This article reviews the main papers that discuss these new ways of leadership. For this purpose, we examine the principal theoretical models and research lines, and we discuss their practical implications in terms of intervention and the management of work teams.
