Leaders are found at every level of an organisation. Different situations require different skill sets and experience, which means the leader for one job is not necessarily the best leader for the next. This applies throughout an organisation, right up to the top table. A chief executive who can successfully lead an organisation through a boom period is not always the right person to lead through tough times.
