The article's goal was to identify the elements that led organizational leaders and traditional leadership practices supported by academic theories to non- traditional leadership practices.In the age of extreme complexity, attention to leadership is crucial. The third millennium, with its unique traits like hyper- industrialization, communication and information technology period, and digital world, demands leaders who can keep up with societal developments. The construction and development of an organization involves many different aspects, among which leadership is of great importance and occupies 45 percent of organizational work (Bass & Stogdill, 1990). Leadership works greatly on the realization of visions and goals; a leader lacking in leadership, like the front of a train short of a driver, prevents the realization of these goals.Value of the study: Leaders are moving away from the conventional leadership theories that have been taught in schools and toward their non-conventional leadership techniques. There is a paucity of knowledge regarding the causes of this new phenomenon, and leaders are still being educated using theories that may no longer be suitable in light of the constantly shifting organizational environment.In contrast, a strong leader may effectively guide his followers to go in a particular direction, much like a front with a forceful driving force. A leader in an organization is like the front of a locomotive. According to system theory, an organization's harmony appears and its goals are realized as long as its organizational leadership is at its finest.
