Rapid technological advancements and process automation have enabled organizations to manage their work across time and space, that is, to create virtual teams. In the paper we differentiate between leadership in traditional and virtual work contexts. Additionally, we outline the challenges that leaders of virtual teams face. Furthermore, we identify transformational and transactional leadership styles as the two most impactful hierarchical leadership styles and outline their outcomes in virtual teams. Moreover, we outline the outcomes of shared leadership in virtual teams. Lastly, we summarize the impacts of research on leadership in virtual teams.
