As the name suggests, intergroup leadership involves a fair amount of interaction among team members. On paper, it may look simple enough, but in reality, it's a lot harder to put into practice. That's because of the various factors at play in intergroup leadership - culture, ethnicity, gender, religion, politics. In today's fast-moving economy, the dynamics of intergroup leadership are best seen when a merger has taken place. According to Michael Hogg, one of the main challenges for intergroup leadership here is managing the anxieties of the sub group(s), because they feel that they're not going to be respected, treated as distinct.
