In Aristotelian virtue theories, "phronesis" is foundational to being good, but to date accounts of how this particularly important virtue can emerge are sketchy.

Souba, Wiley W.; Souba, Matthew H. – Journal of Leadership Education, 2018
Each of us has an implicit leadership theory, a mental model we are largely unaware of, that represents the skills, traits, and qualities that define effective leaders.
