Remember that Ralph basically has leadership thrust upon him.  From that point on, he focuses on two things: rescue and survival.  Later in the novel, he pushes to keep leadership because he recognizes that Jack's efforts will not get them saved.  He wishes to retain his status as chief in order to get them back home.
