 This study sought to investigate different features of contingency leadership theories to find a suitable model that can adapt to the changing context. This research is a qualitative study employing qualitative meta-analysis to achieve the aim of the study, which is discovering a suitable leadership model for volatile environment as well as situating the model into Indonesian Islamic educational context. Data were gathered from journal articles and books. The result shows that among the contingency leadership theory in the literature, the leadership model proposed by Vroom-Yetton-Jago can be considered more applicable to Indonesian Islamic educational context. However, some adjustment toward the model is needed, such as considering the concept of leadership substitute or leadership neutralizer introduced by Steven Kerr and John Jermier.
