Today's views of leadership and management have significantly expanded to incorporate a variety of elements such as rewards, visions, and worker participation. However, most perspectives still view leadership as something that is assigned to a designated person who then exercises influence downward toward subordinate followers. In many ways the persistent top-down command and control theme that supports established leadership thought and practice prevents organizations from fully tapping into their human resources, in turn limiting their flexibility to meet the challenges of increasingly dynamic, complex, and competitive environments. Shared Entrepreneurship replaces the top-down approaches of the past with a new framework that draws strengths and innovation from collaboration and sharing. This book is divided into two main sections. The first section consists of six chapters which provide an in-depth overview and discussion of shared entrepreneurship.
