There are extreme situations where having an in-front leader calling the shots is necessary; usually in times of immediate danger or crisis. The majority of interactions, however, are not this dire and actually benefit from having a variety of leaders contributing.
"Whether it's building a strategic plan, launching a new product, running a kids' soccer league or managing a non-profit, having access to leadership throughout the enterprise is a major advantage in that it brings a variety of perspectives, experience, and skills to bear."
