March 2003 | 344 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Shared Leadership brings together the foremost thinkers on the subject and is the first book of its kind to address the conceptual, methodological, and practical issues for shared leadership. It advances the understanding of the shared leadership phenomenon: its dynamics, moderators, appropriate settings, facilitating factors, contingencies, measurement, practice implications, and directions for the future. This book provides a realistic and practical discussion of the benefits, as well as the risks and problems, associated with shared leadership. It is an essential text for management, education, and communication courses in leadership, teamwork, organizational behaviour and small groups. Practising consultants will find this an invaluable reference in their leadership and team development programmes.
