This paper’s main objective is to examine distributed leadership’s current conceptualisation in existing research through a critical literature review and identify distributed leadership challenges, attributes, and benefits through qualitative interviews. The methodology adopts the primary research design approach to answer the four main research questions systematically. The research design is based on virtual interviews involving 41 general managers working in Dubai’s tourism sector. These respondents were asked about their distributed leadership perceptions, challenges, benefits, and attributes in their sector. <br/><br/>The research study concludes that adopting organisational attributes is likely to create several benefits for the hotels that operate in the hospitality sector. The study recommends implementing a detailed plan which allows involvement in the formulation of critical decisions. <br/>
